CCC Planning Committee 19th December 2019 Print E-mail

Dear Residents,

Many thanks to all of those who attended the WDC Planning Meeting in Leamington on Tuesday 3rd December.  As expected the outline planning application was passed with one abstention.  Despite many misgivings and acknowledgement that the huge building development would seriously impact on Finham, the Councillors followed the advice from the Planning officers to approve.

We need to remember that the reason for this situation is entirely down to the inaccurate housing figures put forward by CCC in their Local Plan.

The next thing we need to address is the plan to create a traffic island at the junction of St Martins Road, Howes Lane, Kings Hill Lane and Green Lane which is currently being challenged by Finham Parish Council.

Also an access point is proposed alongside the primary school (opposite the shops on Green Lane)

This will be discussed for approval at CCC Planning Committee on Thursday 19th December at 2 pm.

We need your help!

Please join us at the Council House by 1.15 to make your feeling known to the Councillors. Tell as many people as you can.

We are aware that many people are now saying it will happen so what is the use of attending meetings but if we do not then the Council will assume that we agree.

I would like to thank all of the residents who have supported us over many years.

Kind regards

Bob Fryer (President)

Petition to Stop Road Junction at Green Lane Print E-mail

Petition to stop Coventry road junction for Kings Hill 2.5k homes plan

(From the Coventry Observer - 26th July 2019)

A CAMPAIGN has been launched to stop road construction that would ‘damage forever’ Kings Hill – amid plans for more than 2,500 homes.

The petition has been created against plans to build a roundabout in Green Lane which would connect the city and the proposed mass development just over the city border in Warwick district. It has gained more than 220 signatures in just over 24 hours with residents slamming the plans on social media.

The major application lodged to Coventry City Council proposes two new junctions on land west of Green Lane.

The petition – started by prospective Tory councillor Mattie Heaven – states: “URGENT! STOP THE KINGS HILL ACCESS ROAD!
“Please sign this online petition urging Coventry Council to REJECT the planning application for a roundabout at GREEN LANE to provide site access to the proposed Kings Hill development. The local roads are not built to cope with the number of vehicles that would be required to clear the site and then build up to 2,000 houses. This is your chance to unite behind the residents’ strong opposition to this inappropriate, unwanted and feared proposal, before Kings Hill is damaged forever.

The new roundabout junction would provide access to Saint Martins Road, Green Lane and Howes Lane – heading into Coventry. It also includes a restricted access junction onto Green Lane just to the north of Finham Primary School.

An outline planning application to Warwick District Council also proposes up to 2,500 homes, a district centre, two new schools, more open spaces and new or upgraded roads.

The so-called Kings Hill Park masterplan includes the potential for an eventual 4,000 dwellings as allocated in the district council’s Local Plan for housing and development.
Residents have previously raised concerns about the loss of green space, and an added strain on services.

Planning consultants Savills, on behalf of several applicants, said in a planning statement: “The two highway access points have been designed in accordance with highways guidance and they will ensure that the wider Kings Hill Park development is easily accessible by high quality public transport, cyclists and pedestrians. In summary, we consider that this application is policy compliant and it will ensure that the development of the Kings Hill Park scheme is deliverable. The Kings Hill Park site will bring significant benefits that we consider are sufficient to outweigh any potential harm that may arise from the two proposed access points. The benefits include meeting local housing needs, contributing towards the supply of social and community infrastructure, enhancing landscape fabric and biodiversity, and increasing pedestrian access and permeability across the application site."

Dear Residents,

As you know there are two planning applications from the Developers regarding Kings Hill.

The Coventry City Council planning application FUL/2018/0842 is on line at - www.coventry.gov.uk/info/107/planning.  The closing date is June 29th 2019

Warwick District Council has resurrected a 2018 Application No. W/18/0643 with a closing date of 2nd July 2019 which can be viewed on line – https://www.warwickdc.gov.uk/planningdocuments

Both planning departments say that previous responses will be included. However, we feel that everyone needs to respond again but concentrating on the issues of traffic congestion and air pollution.
