This evening the Town Councils planning committee looked at Mendip District Councils planning application for a temporary office, this looks like an extension to the existing portacabin in their car park.
Whilst, I had no objection to this application, I did make comment that if this application was made by another company, the planning authority would expect a travel plan.
Why do I believe Mendip should produce green travel plan?
We see Mendip staff parking their cars in Compton Rd/Corner and Kingsland Rd, we see both Council car parks full of their staff cars, so it is right for Mendip produce a plan to reduce car journeys.
Fortunately, the Town Council agreed and made a recommendation for Mendip to produce such a plan.
