A planning application, which would have seen the residential accommodation above the Premier shop on Gale Lane converted into 5 letting rooms, has been withdrawn.
The proposal was criticised by some residents who feared that 5 separate, unrelated, tenants would generate additional parking problems in the area. There are already issues with inadequate parking on St Stephens Road.
Other criticisms related to the lack of waste bin space and the absence of any cycle storage.
The owners may be permitted to use the first floor accommodation for single family use.
