Pending MDDC Decision
Proposal: Retention of change of use of building and land from car valeting to auction centre
Location: Land at NGR 302825 109481 Five Bridges Cullompton
Willand Parish Council had no observations regarding the change of use, but noted that the curtilage being used would appear to be much larger than that authorised for the car valeting and more agricultural land is being used.
The fencing provided is industrial and not in keeping with the rural look of the fencing which was required around the car sales area. The Parish Council also noted that the change of use had already occurred on the site without the appropriate planning approval.
The access to the site is via a public lay-by and on the two sale days so far vehicles have been parked in that lay-by and owners observed going to the sale site.
The Parish Council shared the Highways observation regarding the suitable and adequate parking facilities.
It wished to express concern regarding the failure of any agency to even consider the accident record at this entrance.
