Refuse - the width of the road was unsuitable for buses. Lack of space for both cycles and cars. Inadequate parking facilities. Hours of opening not specified. Contrary to various Policies of the Cambridge Green Belt Plan (1992), South Cambs Local Plan (1993) and the Structure Plan. Would be inappropriate in a Green Belt as explained in the guidance contained in PPG2 "Green Belts". These premises clearly had potential for other uses e.g. all night raves, musical events which committee would be concerned about. Therefore, if despite these objections, this application were to be approved then the use should be restricted to a skate park only. 547/99 S/1773/99/RM Mr JF Lindsay house and garage adjacent 17 High Street.
