NEW VEHICULAR CROSSOVER
Planning Application submitted and as of the 12.10.2020 approved, for a new vehicular crossover and block paved driveway in Monkmoor, Shrewsbury.
Following an initial consultation with the client En-Plan: Planing & Architecture formulated and submitted a full planning application to Shropshire County Council. The planning application has now progressed to approval and En-Plan are proud of this achievement as the application had been attempted by other Consultants previously but they have been unsuccessful and it is En-Plan's technical knowledge that has won the day. We also have a dedicated Highways and Access Issues page that details further example of how we have helped clients with their development and access issues.
Monkmoor is a residential area located in the town of Shrewsbury, England. Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire, situated in the West Midlands region of England. Monkmoor is positioned to the northwest of the town center and is bordered by the River Severn to the east. Monkmoor is primarily a residential neighborhood, featuring a mix of houses and apartments. It has a range of amenities, including shops, schools, and recreational facilities. The area is well-connected to the rest of Shrewsbury, with bus services providing transportation links to the town center and other nearby areas.
67 Monkmoor Road is the northerly half of a pair of brick semi-detached built in the late 19th Century and is located approximately 1.8 miles north east from the centre of Shrewsbury. There is currently a low blue brick front garden boundary wall which separates the footpath from the dwelling. There is currently a small paved front garden which measures at approximately 5.39 metres from the principal elevation to the boundary wall.
There is a mixture of dwellings along Monkmoor Road which already have off road parking to the front of their dwellings so the proposals will not look out of place within the street scene. The property is a semi-detached dwelling with neighbours to both sides of the dwelling. The proposals will have very little impact if any on either of these neighbouring properties (59 Station Road and 67 Station Road) as this will only affect the existing Highway.
Shropshire Councils Highway team have confirmed they had no objection to the application. Monkmoor Road is governed by a 30mph speed limit and is residential in nature in this location. Should the applicant wish to consider the relocation of the existing bus stop then this should be included in a separate application (Section 184 application) which will be required to carry out the construction as part of the permission to work on the Highway.
The Conservation Officer made reference to concerns over previously refused application for the same proposals but in response to these concerns, policy has changed since the original applications were submitted and refused and section 109 of the NPPF states “Development should only be prevented or refused on highways grounds if there would be an unacceptable impact on highway safety, or the residual cumulative impacts on the road network would be severe”. The case officer feels that the proposals would not have an unacceptable impact on highway safety.
The works are judged to be in scale and character with the original building and of no demonstrable harm in terms of visual impact. No significant harm is considered to arise to the neighbouring resident’s amenity and the application therefore accords with the principal determining criteria of the relevant development plan
policies including CS6 and MD2 and approval is recommended.
