A number of objections have already been raised
Neighbours are up in arms over plans to level a Petts Wood house and replace it with an apartment building.
Next week, planning councillors will decide whether to approve plans to demolish 2 Woodland Way, as developers hope to replace it with seven, two-bedroom flats.
The three-and-a-half storey development has sparked outrage among neighbours, who have raised dozens of objections.
Aside from concerns over pollution, parking and the character of the building, residents warned: “The level of activity and noise in the proposed building would be many times that of the surrounding properties,” with further concerns raised over the privacy of neighbouring homes due to the height of the development.
The council has previously thrown out an application to build a three-bedroom house on the property’s land.
Ahead of next week’s meeting, an early recommendation has been made to refuse the application, on the grounds it could harm the area’s character.
A final decision will be made by planning councillors on Thursday, September 14.
