Officer’s Reason for Refusal On the Makro Hours Application
Here’s the officer’s reason for refusal on the Makro application:
5.22 It is proposed that this Committee RESOLVES to REFUSE the application for the following reasons 1 The proposal, by way of the extension of increased trading hours into the quiet of the morning and evening Monday to Saturday, would give rise to further noise and disturbance by way of traffic and the movement of customers to and from the store. No evidence has been provided to allow the Council to assess the ambient background noise levels for the extended hours proposed. In the absence of evidence to the contrary the proposal is likely to result in a loss of amenity to the occupiers of dwellings in the vicinity of the site detrimental to the expectations those occupiers ought reasonably expect to enjoy and contrary to parts (iii) and (iv) to policy PN 5 to the Rochford District Replacement Local Plan (2006).
