Garage at the rear or 63-65 Raleigh Road

Garage at the rear of 63-65 Raleigh Road (Richmond Council ref 17/2625/FUL)

Update 15/09/2017

We have objected to the retrospective application to extend this garage business, making use of the former substation and building a single storey extension, for the same reasons as set out by Councillor Stephen Speak in calling the application in to be considered by Richmond Council’s Planning Committee.

The proximity to houses in Raleigh Road would we believe result in unacceptable levels of noise, fumes and  overlooking as well as the impact of increased volumes of cars. Opening hours also need to be regularised.
