Planning Refused for Costa Coffee

Recommended Posts

Planning permission was refused for a Costa Coffee to be located on a Retail Park on Holmer Road Hereford with concerns over lack of parking.

Full details of decision below:

THE COUNTY OF HEREFORDSHIRE DISTRICT COUNCIL hereby gives notice in pursuance of the provisions of the above Acts that PLANNING PERMISSION has been REFUSED for the carrying out of the development described above for the following reasons:

1 The proposal would have insufficient parking and this would result in indiscriminate parking to the detriment of highway safety. In addition a lack of an allocated delivery vehicles unloading area would be likely to exacerbate this. The proposal is contrary to Herefordshire Local Plan – Core Strategy policies SS4 and MT1.
Informatives:
1 The Local Planning Authority has acted positively and proactively in determining this application by assessing the proposal against planning policy and any other material considerations and identifying matters of concern with the proposal and discussing those with the applicant both at pre-application stage and during the consideration of the application. However, the additional supporting information has not overcome these concerns and has been found that it is not possible to negotiate a satisfactory way forward and due to the harms which have been clearly identified within the reasons for the refusal, approval is not possible

Like everyone is going to suddenly all rush there for a coffee. The plans look nice and would of hidden the big ugly building in the background. This would of bee na nice location to sit and watch the world go by in the summer months.

Another very lame reason.1 The proposal would have insufficient parking and this would result in indiscriminate parking to the detriment of highway safety. 
The burger van in b&q car park does not have issues with parking or people parking stupidly.
