Planning applications

At each monthly parish council meeting we discuss local planning applications sent to us by Solihull MBC. Remember, we only make a recommendation to Solihull MBC Planning Committee and it is this committee that makes the final decision. Often we refer the applications to a neighbourhood notification. We are also consulted for other reasons e.g. existing site use, noise, smell and fumes, environmental features, Green Belt, Conservation Area, Impact on neighbour viability, public rights of way, sustainability. You can have your say by visiting the planning application page on www.solihull.gov.uk/planning

You can find comprehensive information on all current individual planning applications by visiting Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council (SMBC) website. Here you can view the weekly planning list of new applications, including all documentation relating to individual applications, decision notices etc. There is a facility to make your comments directly to the SMBC via their website. If you do not have access to a computer at home, the computers in the library can be used.

Ref. No: PL/2021/00366/MINFHO   Received: Wed 10 Feb 2021  Validated: Wed 10 Feb 2021 5 Olympus Close Millisons Wood Solihull CV5 9QQ First floor side extension, single storey rear extension and alterations. Open for comment icon Awaiting decision   The Parish Council expresses their view that this changes the original design concept. Must ensure no loss of light and privacy to neighbouring properties. Also the architectural design and use of materials are commensurate with existing properties and compliment rather than detract from the aesthetics. Meriden
Ref. No: PL/2021/00315/PPFL Received: Mon 08 Feb 2021   Validated: Thu 18 Feb 2021 Land Next To 75 Main Road Meriden Solihull Change of Use from telephone exchange (Sui generis) to Class E (a) (b) & (c) Open for comment icon Awaiting decision  

Change of use for café use with signage with impact to pedestrians and highway users. Access to rear of premises via flats compromised. The Parish Council do not know this parking area as a “shoppers car park” as detailed.

There is not sufficient parking at rear. Not sufficient parking at rear with a tight entrance/access.

Impact of café to neighbouring properties i.e. flue stack from kitchen area and food smells permeating into close neighbouring properties.

There is parking restrictions outside on Main Road being double yellow lines; there is also a pedestrian centre refuge for crossing.

Parking will be an issue as turning into Fairfield Rise there is parking restrictions up to driveway behind telephone exchange. There is already parking and turning issues relative to accessing the next door Post Office.

This will change character of village centre design.

Bakersfield Farm Harvest Hill Lane Meriden Solihull CV7 7HP Change the use of site rented off the land owner from an agricultural site to a commercial site for running HGV lorries from. Plus planning permission for a mobile unit on the site to serve the purpose of residential accommodation, currently used as a drivers’ room, with kitchen for staff to make tea, lunch etc; a seating area with a TV while waiting on jobs or breaks (drivers’ hours), also includes a toilet and shower facility due to the job (moving animal by-products).  Awaiting decision   The parish council is in receipt of resident objections from neighbouring properties; there have been ongoing complaints regarding the increased HGV movements and Mr Wilkinson, SMBC Enforcement Officer, has visited the site. The landowner has also been requested to put a retrospective planning application in as currently the site is operating without planning permission. The application received in 2020 was invalid and a further request was made by SMBC Enforcement. This is inappropriate development in greenbelt; currently there is noise nuisance with the site operating 24/7. The commercial activity is for animal by-product/waste generated from wholesale slaughter waste. There is an odour from vehicles and from the site itself with an increase in flies both impacting neighbours. Harvest Hill Lane is a single track highway; it is part of SMBC’s designation “not suitable for HGVs” along with Becks Lane and Shaft Lane. Additional to this use, since 2018 the site has actively stored and moved construction waste including soil, and the sorting of waste materials on site. There is no permit, permission or licence for this business and it is not included in this application. The site is looking like a “landfill” with commercial activity increasing. There are road safety issues to consider too; Becks Lane is well documented as a “black spot” with the blind bend and increased HGV movements onto the main highway being Fillongley Road and main route into Meriden. Screening should have been undertaken prior to this application submission and an Environmental Impact Assessment should accompany any application given the contamination of land, noise, dust, lighting, pollution and effects on wildlife that impact the environment, the local community and neighbours.
