Flawed plan

REGARDING the proposed supermarket in Knowle, there are a number of flaws in the development plans.

REGARDING the proposed supermarket in Knowle, there are a number of flaws in the development plans.

The logistics of the delivery area and process, the building on garage access land (outside the site) and cutting off the service road to Eric Lyons indicate nobody actually visited the area but just used Google maps for information.

I have analysed, the car parking provision within the proposal. The number of spaces according to the diagram is 162. The number of spaces currently available is 130.

The number of spaces taken away by the development from the Red Lion pub is 25 and the on road parking 18. Overall the current number of spaces is 173!

The development takes 11 spaces off the capacity of Knowle car parking. The development will attract people to Knowle and provide employment. Where are all these people going to park?
