Following a presentation from local residents I am recommending the following:
1. All trees recommended for removal should be replaced with appropriate species, to create high quality screens between the development and existing properties, especially those in Harrington Close/Sextons Meadows.
2. There should be no balcony at number five, nor elsewhere if neighbouring properties would be overlooked.
3. All green/amenity spaces should be protected from antisocial parking, e.g. by bollards.
4. More dedicated parking spaces should be created, including designated visitor parking.
If this application gets as far as the Development Control committee, then I am advised it will not be until their March meeting at the earliest.
