My objection to the above application is as follows:

I have lived directly opposite the Spiritualist church in Portland Place for the last 18 years and am very concerned about a number of things. I have seen so many problems in this road over the years, mainly social and this development will only add to our problems. My concerns are:-

1. inadquate space for refuse and recycling.

2. problems with the parking ( council have already removed 2 parking spaces because of the narrow road)

3.The Castle ward area is known to be deprived and to cram 3 flats into such a small space is bound to have a negative impact.

4. the penthouse flat will definitely block out a lot of light to some of the houses opposite.

A lot of the original application was not filled out correctly and also, I didn't receive a copy of the 2nd application - it was just by chance that a neighbour told me about it and lent me his. What I would like to know is how many other residents didn't receive one either. Hardly fair is it! This looks to me like a 'Fait accompli' and do hope we are not wasting our time.
