Text of Petition:  


We, the undersigned, request a Development Control Forum on the above planning application to address matters that the applicant believes have been adequately addressed or are immaterial considerations, but which we believe are of critical importance to the long-term success of this development:


1) Block B2 height and mass.


2) Future-proofness of B2, including ability to convert the multi-storey car park into cycle parking, partially or wholly in phases, preserving at least disabled parking bays, and ensuring safe access and egress for people using cycles.


3) Accommodation of over-ranked CCLT taxis.


4) Reinstatement of more green planting between Devonshire Rd and the surface car park.


5) Great Northern Rd: mini-roundabout, parking bays and replacement of trees.


6) Impacts on food parks and community events behind One Station Square.


7) Wind tunnel effects along the Northern Access Road.
