Objection to planning application at Vale of Lune Rugby Club

Dynamo has objected to the application for 51 houses by the Vale of Lune Rugby Club (reference 17/00309/FUL) as there are not enough details for the  proposed shared-use path from the Bare cricket club alongside one-way Powderhouse Lane to the new road junction to the estate.  Our objection reads:

I write on behalf of Dynamo (Lancaster & District Cycle Campaign) to object to this application as it does not – as far as we can see – currently contain firm guarantees of the width and surface of the proposed shared-use path on the southern section of Powderhouse Lane. This path will be essential for cyclists to be able to access the new estate easily and safely. It is therefore very important that it is wide, well-surfaced and – crucially – safe from cars being parked on it (as has happened at New Quay Road, Lancaster). It needs bollards or a raised kerb to ensure that it is kept clear at all times.

PS  The Dolphinholme application was rejected but the Carnforth oneincredibly – was approved.
