Public Question Time:
Dr Rogers expressed his view on application 14/01295/FUL – Kingsway. He is against the development but accepts it’s an improvement visually. Work began 1st Jan 2011 and this is a retrospective application. He felt that there had been little consideration for public safety and the works had created safety hazards and impinged on the pathway with unauthorised hoardings. 2nd floor interferes with a utility pole and asks TDC councillor to call it in and also ask the Planning committee as to how the situation has arisen. Cllr Calver clarified that they can only call in on matters about the application and NOT how the situation arose. Mrs Holbrook asked HTC to back Rose application 14/01481/FUL, felt it was a great application and would be prosperous for the town.
