TWO new industrial units at the Quedgeley West Trading Estate, near Hardwicke, would ‘dwarf’ their neighbours, councillors have warned.
Plans for the two units at the business park could also lead to increased flooding in the area if the application is granted permission by Stroud District Council.
That was the warning by Hardwicke parish councillors.
Parish clerk Kevin Lee said: “We have identified a number of factors which would impact on local residents.
“The size of the proposed buildings would completely dwarf neighbouring residential properties and have a serious negative impact on their value.
“There is negative experience of the impact of other major industrial developments on the site. These have not been constructed in a way which blends in with the natural environment.”
Councillors complained about potential noise and wanted to see improved signage and colour finish to the buildings.
Pound House, a house adjacent to the site which was built in the 1920s, would lose its ‘character’ they added.
