PLANS for two new commercial buildings in West Felton have been approved by Shropshire Council.

Two separate proposals for B2 commercial buildings on Units 11 and 14 of the Rednal Industrial Estate Site, in West Felton, were made by The Woodhouse Estate.

Council officer Sara Robinson used delegated powers to approve the two developments, with her report stating that neither application had received objections to the plans.

Of both applications, she said: "The building(s) will be located on an area of hardstanding currently unused, the removal of the existing building will ensure that the development will not result in the loss of any car parking or manoeuvring space.

"The scale and design will reflect existing commercial buildings on the estate and will be well screened from the directly adjoining commercial building by the mature trees and landscaping."

She added: "It is considered that the proposal(s) [are] appropriate in terms of design, scale and form and will not have a detrimental impact upon the sounding area and complies with relevant planning policies."

Unit 11, which is under 20/04692/FUL, is for a building 25 metres long by 15 metres wide (with one of the bays elongated to allow HGV to be accommodated within), and will be built a small distance away from a current cuilding.

For Unit 14, the proposal – 20/04693/FUL – is to allow the applicants to to store scaffolding equipment.

Both applications received permission for three years.

Meanwhile, however, an application for further internal alterations and the removal of more steel rods for an application at Tedsmore Hall – also in West Felton – was refused.

Permission to turn a former racing stables into holiday lets were approved in 2018.

The applicant – Mr R Parker – planned for more alterations but did not get the go-ahead.
