If you haven’t done so already there are a few days left to object to the application for a drive-through Burger King on the old police station site on Westgate Road.

There were 183 objections to the original planning application and 900 signatories to the petition. This shows the strength of feeling in the local community. Though revised and split into two, the new planning application is largely the same as it was before so most of the issues raised by residents are still valid.

Unfortunately, we’ve been told that the objections to the original application won’t be considered when the council assesses the new application. This means that it is really important that you object to the new application even if you objected before.

The deadline is slightly later than we had publicised previously, but is only a few days away now.

Deadline for objections: Thursday 20 August 2020.

Make sure you submit your objection now!
