Wrong place to site car-re­pair works

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

I am go­ing to op­pose the change of use at Wye Court Farm (‘Vil­lage ap­pli­ca­tion is un­ac­cept­able’, KE Au­gust 13).

The present B1 use al­lows of­fices, re­search and de­vel­op­ment, and light in­dus­trial use ap­pro­pri­ate to the residential area.

This, I pre­sume, does not per­mit mo­torve­hi­cle re­pair and ser­vic­ing.

B2 use, I un­der­stand, al­lows all other in­dus­trial uses, which opens up all sorts of po­ten­tial uses. This can­not be ap­pro­pri­ate for this site, and would bring all sorts of ve­hi­cles and traf­fic to this quiet cor­ner of Wye.

In ad­di­tion, con­sid­er­a­tion should be given to the ever-grow­ing Wye School, whose pupils will be at risk from the traf­fic in the ap­proach road, Olantigh Road.

I do agree that ex­tra em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties should be cre­ated in Wye, but only within the cur­rent B1 us­age. Ernst Em­merich Cherry Gar­den Lane, Wye
