We have submitted our views on the proposed canopy for Fair Green to the Council’s planning applications committee.
If you read our post from yesterday – Fair Green canopy gets thumbs down from Design Review Panel, you will know that the Council’s own Design Review Panel has given the canopy ‘red’ status – indicating the Panel’s displeasure at its design aspects.
Our comments give our own views on the design, and make other points including:
- We have serious concerns about the manner in which the planning application has been handled, including significant points about the order in which certain processes have been carried out
- We have concerns about the level of detail in the information which has been submitted, which we feel is insufficient
- We have concerns about the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the canopy
- We note that even the council itself has cast doubt on the potential for the canopy’s use for community events
The planning applications committee is on 7 November at 7:15 at the Civic Centre, Morden. The meeting is open to the public.
