We ask for Coventry City Council to request that the applicant
submits the following:
- transport assessment and air quality assessment that includes the Longford Road–Windmill Road junction and the Coventry City Council’s air quality measured monitoring sites LR1 and LR2 which are based here. Furthermore, they should include sensitive receptors at this junction within their air quality modelling.
- air quality assessment which revisits, with support from Coventry City Council, the use of LR3 (based at Longford Road–Oakmoor Road Junction) within its modelling; how can an assessment be accepted when it reports that a measured monitoring site is ‘identified as an outlier but the reason for this could not be identified.’ If there are issues affecting the the use of LR3 in air quality assessments, this needs to be addressed urgently.
- a transport assessment which includes the impact of the planned ‘M6 J3 Interim Scheme’ on the area’s local road network
- phase 3 geo-environmental report which includes a land contamination remediation strategy and Tier 3 Detailed Quantitative Risk Assessment (DQRA). This is essential due to the history of contaminated waste tipping know to have occurred on the site.
- flood risk assessment which provides a thorough investigation of the culverted waterways in the area and where they lead; including, the culvert referred to as being ‘at the southern boundary of the site adjacent to Sinclair Drive.’ From previous incidents, it is known that pollutants tipped in Hawkesbury and Bayton Road Industrial Estate (through storm drains) have ended up in the Wyken Slough. For example, when cyanide waste tipped on Hawkesbury Colliery Farm killed fish in the Wyken Slough during the 1960’s and a company polluted sediment in a brook running through the Wyken Slough in 2002.
- flood risk assessment which looks at the impact of removing a local flood storage area on off-site locations in Alderman’s Green, (e.g. on Canberra Road).
Furthermore, we are extremely concerned about the cumulative
impact of recent development proposals within the Longford,
Holbrooks, Exhall, Heath and Poplar wards. Therefore, we request
that Coventry City Council takes the allocations within the
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council’s Borough plan into
account and engages fully with consultation on any future local
plan reviews with regard to cumulative impact on the above wards.
This should include:
- traffic levels
- air quality
- flood risk and flood storage
- climate change
- access to green space and sports/play facilities
- access to services, e.g. GP, dentist, schools
