I can confirm that I do not object to the proposals in principle. I would however recommend a scheme of noise mitigation be submitted and agreed with the LPA prior to the permission being granted. <br/><br/>Kind regards,<br/><br/>John Mills

Current (06 20) planning applications in Whittington and Fisherwick (4)<br/><br/>Single storey extensions and alterations to form entrance lobby and function room at Lichfield Friary Tennis Club Tamworth Road Whittington Heath<br/>Response due by 14 July 2020<br/><br/>Key Observations:<br/><br/>' Lichfield Friary Tennis Club is located on the north side of the A51 Tamworth Road and the west side of the access lane that also serves the Horse and Jockey pub and Lichfield Rugby club. It consists of 6 fence enclosed courts (2 all-weather 4 grass), a small clubhouse and associated car parking.<br/><br/>' Relatively recently planning approval was secured for upgrading the courts within their existing footprint and the installation of LED based floodlighting. The current application seeks to extend the existing clubhouse by some 35m2 to provide enlarged function room facilities and accommodate a disabled toilet.<br/><br/>' The function room extension would be a facetted glazed aluminium framed structure providing visual oversight of the court area and separated from the existing by sliding folding doors, allowing both to operate as a single space when required. Disabled facilities would be housed in an enlarged and re-planned entrance lobby. Concurrently existing toilets, which flank a small kitchenette within the existing space would be upgraded.<br/><br/>' Limited areas of new brickwork and slate roofing would match the existing, whilst the aluminium framing to replacement glazed doors and that of the (solar tinted) glazed structure would be colour coated brown to match retained painted timber elements.<br/><br/>' Although located on land accorded green belt status the impact of these proposals, which are dominated by the Horse and Jockey pub and Lichfield Rugby Club behind, would be minimal. (Note that the latter has previously secured approval for significant floodlighting upgrading and major alterations and extensions to clubhouse facilities.) Consequently, these modestly scaled changes can reasonably be regarded as uncontroversial and hence suitable for acceptance.<br/>

Good Day,<br/><br/>Thank you for the opportunity to comment on this planning application. Please find our response noted below:<br/><br/>With Reference to the above planning application the company's observations regarding sewerage are as follows.<br/><br/>As the proposal has minimal impact on the public sewerage system I can advise we have no objections to the proposals and do not require a drainage condition to be applied.<br/><br/>Severn Trent Water advise that there may be a public sewer located within the application site. Although our statutory sewer records do not show any public sewers within the area you have specified, there may be sewers that have been recently adopted under the Transfer Of Sewer Regulations 2011. Public sewers have statutory protection and may not be built close to, directly over or be diverted without consent and contact must be made with Severn Trent Water to discuss the proposals. Severn Trent will seek to assist in obtaining a solution which protects both the public sewer and the building.<br/><br/>Please note that there is no guarantee that you will be able to build over or close to any Severn Trent sewers, and where diversion is required there is no guarantee that you will be able to undertake those works on a self-lay basis. Every approach to build near to or divert our assets has to be assessed on its own merit and the decision of what is or isn't permissible is taken based on the risk to the asset and the wider catchment it serves. It is vital therefore that you contact us at the earliest opportunity to discuss the implications of our assets crossing your site. Failure to do so could significantly affect the costs and timescales of your project if it transpires diversionary works need to be carried out by Severn Trent.<br/><br/>Please note it you wish to respond to this email please send it to Planning.apwest@severntrent.co.uk where we will look to respond within 10 working days. Alternately you can call the office on 0345 266 7930<br/><br/>Kind regards,<br/><br/>Asset Protection Team<br/>Severn Trent <br/><br/><br/>Asset Protection (West) <br/>Severn Trent Water - Waste Water Services<br/>Tel: 0345 266 7930<br/>email: Planning.apwest@severntrent.co.uk <br/>
