Parish Council Response to Planning Application TWC/2018/0185 – Land corner of Colliers Way & Rock Road

The Parish Council is concerned that the application for Hickorys Smokehouse will have a significant impact on traffic on Rock Road and the junction with Colliers Way.

Whilst the revised plans address some of the initial concerns on design and opening hours the car park has been enlarged and can now hold 90 vehicles, which the applicants own transport assessment states will generate 65 vehicle movements per hour onto Rock Road at their peak times – lunchtime and afternoon / evening.

This is the third significant development proposal to be submitted in recent weeks which will impact on Rock Road, the others being Johnsons Recycling Centre ( which will generate a minimum of 50 HGV movements per day) and Lawley Development Phases 5 & 9 (the proposed link road from Phase 5 to Marlborough Way will allow the 362 new houses to exit  down Marlborough Way, past Newdale School and join Rock Road virtually opposite the entrance to Overdale).

Telford & Wrekin Council have a duty under their own Local Plan “to ensure the cumulative impact of development on local road networks are mitigated (Policy C3)” The Parish Council do not believe that the Planning and Highways Departments have sufficiently considered the cumulative impact on the local road network when responding to this, and the other 2 applications, and have formally requested that this application be submitted to TWC  Planning Committee .

UPDATE ON THE PLANNING APPLICATION FOR PHASE 11 (LAWLEY COMMON)

We have been informed by Telford & Wrekin Planning Office that the Developers have withdrawn their Reserved Matters application for the engineering work on Phase 11 (TWC/2018/0077).

There were numerous objections to the proposed works from residents, the Parish Council, TWC technical officers and the Coal Authority, mainly due to a perceived lack of information in the application about the impact on drainage and the mine shafts on site.

The Developers have been asked to provide more detailed information and to submit a Full Planning Application for further consideration.

They have also been informed that all work being carried out on Phase 11 should stop and that no more waste material from other sites should be spread on the site.
