A MAJOR bus company in north Shropshire has applied for the discharge of a condition placed on its approved expansion plans.

Lakeside Coaches, in Ellesmere, applied for the discharge of the condition to Shropshire Council for the formation of additional car parking/coaches space and surrounding works, which was approved in June 2022.

A condition placed on the approval was that prior to the building of any external lighting on the site, a lighting plan shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.


It added: “The lighting plan shall demonstrate that the proposed lighting will not impact upon ecological networks and/or sensitive features.

“The submitted scheme shall be designed to take into account the advice on lighting set out in the Bat Conservation Trust's Guidance Note 08/18 Bats and artificial lighting in the UK.

The bus company, which runs routes across the county and excursions across the country, has applied for the condition to be discharged.

A decision on whether the application is successful is expected by Thursday, January 25.
