MEDIA RELEASE
Issued: September 29, 2016

 
Town council objects to plans for 90-bed care home
 
Plans for a 90-bed care home on Honey Lane, Waltham Abbey, are being opposed by Waltham Abbey Town Council.

Concerns over parking are among the reasons why the town council’s planning and licensing sub-committee decided at its meeting yesterday (Wednesday) to object to the proposals submitted by Caring Homes.

The plans indicate parking for 32 cars, including two disabled bays.

A town council spokesman said: “The committee is concerned that the provision of on-site parking spaces is insufficient relative to the application.”

The spokesman added that the council’s objections also include concerns about such a development in the green belt with councillors believing there are no special circumstances highlighted in the application to support approval of the scheme.

Councillors consider the proposals an over-development of the site and add that the building would be overbearing.

The sub-committee has also raised concerns over the local transport information plan submitted with the application saying there are inaccuracies with the bus timetables quoted and that peak traffic times are not stipulated in the document.

The town council understands that numerous objections have been lodged against the development.
