Councillor Andrew Jones stated that this was another supplementary planning guidance to the local plan concerning the many railway arches in the borough, which were very important to its heritage. The railway arches were home to many SMEs and a wide range of amenity uses with multiple owners and planning arrangements. This guidance had been widely consulted upon with residents and businesses taking a holistic approach to all railway arches across the borough. This document contained guidance for taking planning decisions in future to support small and medium-sized enterprises and addressed residents’ concerns.
