A report into the application states: “Concerns are centred on the substandard nature of Mill Lane and fears that the proposal will increase traffic without mitigating the effects.”

However it goes onto say the authority predicts there will only be one extra vehicle every 30 minutes at peak times, which is considered low and does not ‘justify refusal’.

The brownfield site was previously used by the council as a depot for refuse vehicles.

The application is recommended for approval.
