We the undersigned petition the Council to take on board the concerns of residents who strongly object to the plans to build over 100 student rooms on Collingwood Road, on the following grounds -
1. It is an extreme over intensification of use, as the buildings will total 110 student rooms in a residential area whilst there will be a net reduction of parking spaces from 5 spaces to just 2 spaces. The management plans state that students will not be able to park on site or bring cars - this is completely unenforceable, as those students with cars or people who visit the 100 plus students in cars will add to the already tight parking situation in this area of Hearsall. It is completely inappropriate. It will also cause an increase in traffic in tight residential streets impacting road safety and stressing existing infrastructure.
2. The over intensification of use in the residential area will add to the problems of litter and other environmental pollution such as noise in a busy residential area.
The petition calls on the Council to refuse the planning
application, ref FUL/2021/3316, which aims to build over 100
student rooms by Collingwood Road.
This ePetition runs from 29/11/2021 to 31/01/2022.
