Young Estates appeals against refused industrial development at Aldermaston
A property company is appealing against a refused commercial development.
Young Estates and Land Ltd has made an appeal to the secretary of state against West Berkshire Council’s decision to refuse a new industrial development in Aldermaston.
The company applied to construct nine light industrial units, including one with office accommodation, in a single building at Youngs Industrial Estate, Paices Hill.
The proposal also included parking and access roads.
The appeal will be determined on the basis of written representations.
People can modify/withdraw their previous representation/s at https://acp.planninginspectorate.gov.uk or by sending their comments to Simon Dunn, The Planning Inspectorate, 3C Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN, email@example.com
Any representations will be copied to the appellant and the local planning authority.
The appeal documents are available for inspection at the West Berkshire Council Market Street offices in Newbury during normal working hours, or online at https://publicaccess.westberks.gov.uk using the application reference: 22/02730/FULMAJ.
The council previously rejected the application on grounds of public safety, increased traffic volume and the impact on the surrounding rural area.
Aldermaston Parish Council also objected, saying it had adopted a policy to object to all commercial applications which could lead to an increase in HGV traffic on the A340.
The Office for Nuclear Regulation also advised against the development due to the site’s proximity to AWE Aldermaston and the high level of existing commercial units already on the site.
All representations must be received by December 27 and quote appeal reference APP/W0340/W/23/3327949.
