Brett’s have applied for retrospective, temporary planning permission for use of their site off of Leacon Road as a ‘transit point for exchange of trailers’. The site, that is opposite the Ford and was previously an aggregates treatment plant, is allocated for housing in the Council’s Urban Sites and Infrastructure Development Plan Document.
Use of the site for what appeared to be a lorry park commenced last March. It seems that Ashford Borough Council have advised Brett’s that planning permission for change of use is required. The application states that the site is currently being used by ‘ETS Forwarding Ltd’, who wish to continue to operate from the site until permanent premises are found. The change of use is requested for two years.
The planning application can be viewed on ABC’s website.
