Our comments on planning application for canopy on Fair Green

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.
