My husband and I have deep reservations concerning this project. This is the second application for this site and our objections remain the same. Our property is situated below the proposed site and the bedrooms at the rear of our property would be severely overlooked even by windows of a
dormer bungalow. This new dormer bungalow would also affect the light to our building as the light to our house is already affected by the present property at 2 Waltonbury Close.
However, our main objection relates to the large Sycamore tree in our garden and very close to the proposed site. This tree is covered by a TPO and we are concerned that any footing and foundation work for the proposed property would undermine the root system causing damage to the health and stability of the tree and therefore creating a health and safety risk to pedestrians and all nearby property not to mention possible financial implications to ourselves.
We feel that reference should be immediately made to the Tree Officer.
Apart from these concerns the plan attached to this document does not show means of access/egress - whether through Waltonbury Close or the unadopted lane to the rear of our property. This needs to be made clear to us before a decision is made.
