Application for 57 houses off Alrewas Road – latest

Published 29 September 2020

Kings Bromley Parish Council has for months been pushing Lichfield District Council to make a decision on the proposed development of 57 houses off the Alrewas Road. On 13th September a letter was sent by our Parish Clerk to the Chief Planning Officer, with a copy to Doug Pullen, leader of Lichfield District Council:

“Re Planning Application Ref 19/00191/OUTM

At our parish council meeting on 9th September my Councillors expressed great concern, frustration and disappointment that to date no decision has been reached on the above planning application.

Two of our three District Councillors were present at the meeting and I think it is fair to say that they too were very frustrated at the lack of information coming from your officers. They and my councillors are totally dissatisfied with this delay.

It is my councillors understanding that this application should go to a full council meeting for consideration.

The parish council was notified of this application around February 2019, over 19 months ago and are amazed that no decision has yet been made.”

No reply has yet been forthcoming. LDC councillor Richard Cox, who has been actively pressing on this issue on our behalf has informed us that the case officer has recently left, which may partly explain the delay.

Traffic Survey

Published 15 September 2020

The 7.5 tonnes turning ban at the A515/A513 junction is now permanent. On Tues 1st and Weds 2nd September from 7am to 7pm, volunteers monitored to HGV traffic to see how many lorries were breaking the ban. Approximately one HGV per hour broke the ban A515 left onto the A513 and A513 right onto the A515. This is a considerable reduction on what we have previously seen, but the police have been notified of our opinion that it is still not acceptable. Where it was possible to identify the haulier, they were notified and in all cases the relevant Transport Manager apologised and stated that action would be taken.

Residents of the A515 have reported a big increase in HGV traffic at night. We believe that this is due to nighttime A38 diversions, but the situation will continue to be monitored.

A big thank you to all those who gave up their time to conduct this survey.

If any residents observe HGVs breaking the bans please take photos and send them, along with the reg., date and time to
