[Reposted from old forum entry of 1 March 2022]
The proposals have been modified:
- There will be no vehicle access to the tank from Leamington Walk once the construction work is complete; instead a 12m x 3m tanker parking bay will be created in Warrender Park Terrace;
- The ‘grasscrete’ access road will therefore not be required and is deleted from the proposals; the site will be restored to natural grass cover on completion, with the only exception being the four access covers to the tank which will be infilled with artificial grass;
- Leamington Walk will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists throughout the construction work and no diversion will be required;
- Instead of the one large 3m high, 6.5m long, kiosk on the Links, there will be two much smaller 1.8m high kiosks on Warrender Park Terrace, adjacent to the existing telecoms cabinets there.
The contractors have provided this detailed drawing showing the revised proposed layout. A simplified version is shown below.
Planning permission 21/04543/FUL for the revised proposals was granted on 31 March 2022.
