Friday 03/04/202020/0003/TPO

Folly Terrace Goodshaw Lane Crawshawbooth Rossendale Lancashire – Trees indicated on the attached plan are a mixture of self-seeded trees of varying maturity. They have all seeded in the masonry on the bridge adjacent to Folly Terrace thus threatening the integrity and safety of the said structure. There is some difficulty identifying the species at this time of year, but all are deciduous. All trees have been indicated on the attached plan with a “G” reference indicating their approximate girth. As stated, the trees have all self-seeded into the masonry of Folly Clough Bridge and have caused some damage to the same. If left, the structure of the bridge will become unstable according to the attached report. The tree indicated in red on the plan requires immediate attention, those indicated in blue are less threatening but still substantially so. Those marked in green pose lesser threat at present but if left, they will do so in the future. The overall plan is to remove the trees. No replanting is planned as this will be counter-productive to the preservation of Folly Clough Bridge. 2020/0146 – Goodshaw Baptist Church, Chapel Street, Crawshawbooth, Rossendale, BB4 8BS.

Please note the following from RBC Planning portal and also refer to our objection guidance page which you can find HERE

You can view a planning application online, if you are unable to do this you can visit our Futures Park office where they can be viewed electronically. Our offices are open from 8.45am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Tuesday when the hours are 9.15am to 5pm). Comments received before a decision is made will be considered. Please note that officers will not respond to questions or comments made on a planning application. Any comments you make cannot be treated as confidential or kept private. Information you provide, including personal information, will be made available to others. Comments we can take into account A decision on a planning application is made by considering a number of different matters. The most important will be what the policies of the development plan for the area say about the application site and the type of development proposed. Government policy, local policies and other planning considerations will also be taken into account. These include: 

 The scale, appearance and design of the proposal 

 The effect of the proposal on the amenities of local residents, including loss of light, overlooking, loss of privacy, noise and disturbance 

 The impact of the proposal on the character of the area and whether the use is appropriate 

 The impact of the proposal on highway safety and parking 

 The impact of the proposal on nature conservation and trees 

 The effect of the proposal on the character and appearance of a conservation area. 

 The effect of the proposal on the special architectural or historic interest of a listed building. 

Comments that cannot be taken into account The Government makes it very clear that there are some things which are not planning considerations. These cannot be taken into account when we decide a planning application: 

 Loss of property value 

 Boundary disputes 

 Private matters between neighbours, such as covenants, rights of access and damage to property 

 Trade competition. 

PLEASE NOTE: in the case of a householder or minor commercial application, in the event of an appeal that proceeds by way of the expedited procedure, any representations made about the application will be passed to the Secretary of State and there will be no opportunity to make further representations.
