IGas have made application for a non material amendment for Tinker Lane. The documents are available on the NCC website here:
In effect IGas are asking if they might remove the bollards in the lay-by (image above) and restore the signage, opening up the lay-by for re-use. This follows a recent meeting of the CLG calling for same and is somewhat contrary to what is referred to in the accompanying letter from IGas consultants. The lay-by is in fact situated within Torworth Parish Council and it would have been appropriate therefore for Torworth Parish Council to make this request. Blyth Parish Council in fact asked for a few of the bollards as free issue and this was agreed by the IGas representative. It is however in everyones best interest that the lay-by is re-opened as soon as possible. The bollards will in the first instance be removed from the lay-by and stored temporarily on the Tinker Lane site.
In addition IGas would like to leave the tarmac hardstanding, the bell mouth, for use as a permanent access. Local people might just have a view on this request and your views should be submitted to NCC before 29th March. The plan view of the proposed retained bell mouth and site restoration is available here.
