I submitted a comment as well, there was a button at the bottom to get an email receipt which I got. Not being a twitter user I found it hard to put forward an argument in 1,000 characters including spaces.
I would advise anybody who lives locally to comment, the developers are effectively selling the flats with the promise of parking outside your house. They have done a parking assessment at 1am and 2am in the morning and found unsurprisingly they could find a space. They haven’t checked during the day when local residents can’t park. The occupants of these one bed flats are likely to use public transport and park their cars on your street, think about 16 cars suddenly permanently parked on your street from Sunday night to Friday night.
Yes, it is a public highway but local residents are entitled to comment and try to stop their streets becoming a free car park for developers who could provide parking if they didn’t want to make more money.
