Plans for a development of seven two-bedroomed houses on land behind the former Three Cups pub on Fore St have been objected to by councillors on grounds of pedestrian safety amongst other issues.
Recommending refusal to TDBC planners, Wellington’s town council made these comments:
- The proposal would result in a danger caused by conflicting pedestrian and vehicular movements;
- There was a lack of adequate, available on street parking to serve the development.
- Access onto Fore Street from the site was a safety concern.
- The Council agree with the concerns expressed by the Building Conservation Officer’s Heritage Consultation Response.
At the same meeting after hearing from both the applicant and objectors the town council also refused permission for a three-storey extension at 17 High Path on the grounds that it would take away too much light from neighbours at No 18.
