cherry pickers
« on: August 30, 2003, 04:07:51 pm »

This relates to the 'cherry pickers' at Warrengate Road which are plainly visible from Swanland Road, and if you live on that road or are a customer at the Woodman pub.  They have been likened to Triffids since they are stored with the arm extended and there is a bright red platform on the extended end of the arm.

In the Welwyn Hatfield Times dated 20 August is a public notice of a Public Inquiry onTues 9 Sept & Wed 10 Sept at Campus West, the Campus, Welwyn Garden City (times not stated but likely to start at 10am.)

Reason for Inquiry is an appeal by R C Robinson against the enforcement notice served by Welwyn Hatfield Council.  The enforcement notice alleges that without planning permission there was a change of use of the land from the permitted use as a haulage depot with repairs and maintenance facilities to a mixed use as  a haulage depot with repairs and maintenance facilities and the use for the operation of a commercial plant hire business with ancillary storage and distribution of commercial plant hire equipment and the repairs, maintenance and servicing of commercial plant hire equipment at

1 Warrengate Road, North Mymms.

Members of the public may attend the inquiry and, at the discretion of the Inspector express their views.  Disabled people can attend and can contact the Council to arrange parking, access, seating etc.

Sorry Dave but I forgot to update everyone on this topic.  
This relates purely to the land behind 1 Warrengate Road used by UK Platforms Ltd., with the entrance between numbers 1 and 5.  The Green Belt Soc has notified most Warrengate Road residents that the Planning Inspector decided the site could be used as a haulage depot and a plant hire depot subject to these conditions:

     No plant, equipment items or material shall be kept, stored, stacked or deposited on the site to a height exceeding 5 metres (approx 16 feet) above ground level i.e. no higher than the buildings on the site.

     Plant can only be moved, operated, maintained or repaired on the site on Monday to Saturday between 7am to 6pm, and never on Sunday

     No more than 8 tractor units and 10 trailers to be parked on site at any one time.  This refers to the haulage business, not plant.

     By 30 December 2003, a scheme for landscaping had to be submitted to Welwyn Hatfield Council in writing.  

     By 30 November 2003, a scheme showing an area within the site to be reserved for parking up to 5 vehicles for staff and visitors had to be submitted to Welwyn Hatfield Council.  This has to be implemented within one month of approval, and the area not used for any other purpose after implementation.

Welwyn Hatfield is unlikely to act on an occasional short-term breach.  For the Council to take action, you must provide dates, times, and what has happened.  Photographic evidence is very helpful where, for example, there are too many trailers on site, or the height restriction is breached.
