Alrewas Residents Group - Update

Aug 21, 2019

The ARG updates you on matters since Update 18, issued on 16 August 2019.

 

Construction traffic not using the approved Construction Route:

In discharging the relevant Planning Conditions, Crest Nicholson has stated that it will be using the Construction Route for HGV vehicles (i.e. over 7.5 tonnes), and it must comply with this.

Click here to view the Construction Route plan.

If any ARG members see vehicles not adhering to this route, it could be for two reasons:

  • They are not adhering to the Planning Condition, i.e. not using the Construction Route, or
  • They are nothing to do with the Green Acres at Alrewas development.
     

Accordingly, to allow Crest Nicholson to filter out those that are nothing to do with the development, and to give Crest Nicholson a reasonable chance of investigating such occurrences and preventing recurrences, the following information should be collected, where possible:

  1. Date and time
  2. Where observed
  3. Direction of travel
  4. Registration Number
  5. Type of vehicle 
  6. Name on vehicle
  7. Colour of vehicle
  8. Load being carried, e.g. plant, pipes, bricks, aggregate
  9. Any other points you wish to raise, e.g. mounted kerb, appeared to be excessive speed, etc.


Photograph(s) would also be very useful. All of the above would be fantastic but we live in a real world, so capture as much as you can.

Instances should then be reported to Crest Nicholson,  Emily Christie – Planning Manager Emily.Christie@crestnicholson.com or  Kevin Fraser – Site Manager kevin.fraser@crestnicholson.com

Also instances should be copied to the ARG alrewasrg@outlook.com (so that the ARG can follow up if/what action has been taken) and Lichfield District Council Planning Enforcement planenforcement@lichfielddc.gov.uk

 

Mud on the road:

The Planning Condition states that the traffic Management Plan/Construction Method Statement shall include – method of prevention of mud being carried onto highway.

The ARG understands that the proposals agreed by SCC/LDC are for a combination of on-site works and road sweeping. Whilst this appears to be stretching “prevention”, we are stuck with this.

For the village, this poses several issues: braking is less efficient on mud/debris, mud/debris may be carried onto our properties and into our houses, mud/debris can block road gullies and hence cause localised flooding in times of heavy rain (NB many properties have little or no difference between the road level and their ground floor level).

Accordingly, if the roads are not free from mud/debris then we need to inform Crest Nicholson. As with the comments on construction traffic above, as much detail as possible should be reported to Crest Nicholson,  Emily Christie – Planning Manager Emily.Christie@crestnicholson.com or  Kevin Fraser – Site Manager kevin.fraser@crestnicholson.com

Also instances should be copied to the ARG alrewasrg@outlook.com (so that the ARG can follow up if/what action has been taken) and Lichfield District Council Planning Enforcement planenforcement@lichfielddc.gov.uk

 

Access to properties in Dark Lane (east):

The following has been requested from Crest Nicholson:

  • A large scale plan of the permanent layout of the access off the adopted Dark Lane highway/proposed highway to the five properties and the pumping station
  • The construction specification detail of the permanent access to the five properties and the pumping station
  • The temporary arrangements/sequencing, including the construction specification detail, for the access to the five properties and the pumping station during the construction period
      

Foul Water Sewerage System:

Further to the comments in the Update 17 regarding the above, it is intended to press Severn Trent for some action on the existing and development exacerbated problems. Accordingly, it would be of great help if you could feedback specific issues that you are aware of regarding the existing foul water sewerage system, preferably in some detail, nature of problem, date (precise or approximate), frequency of occurrence, etc.
