Temporary car park in Grangemouth given green light despite objections

A temporary car park in Grangemouth has received a subsequent building permit despite objections from the local council.

The area northwest of Wood Street is used as an overflow parking lot for construction workers who are building a block-type thermal power station (CHP) for renewable energies in Calachem on Earl’s Road.

The permit is valid for two years and expires on January 28, 2023, and strict times have been set for its use.

Grangemouth parish council raised several issues related to the site being near homes on Wood Street, including concerns about vibration and unsatisfactory pedestrian access.

Councilor Allyson Black asked the planning committee to look into the matter, saying she had concerns that the Wood Street, Chisholm Place and Beancross areas are already under pressure due to heavy traffic.

She said, “There are a lot of problems with noise pollution and that traffic will only make the situation worse.”

Ms. Black also raised concerns about the increased amount of carbon emissions the increased traffic would cause.

Members of the planning committee felt that the parking lot actually makes the area safer by moving the parking lots away from residential streets and benefiting the community.

Several conditions have been imposed to address local residents’ concerns.

The parking lot cannot be used Monday to Friday at 7 a.m., Saturday at 8 a.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m. and closes every day at 6 p.m.

Fences and floodlights and a storage area have also been approved, but the lighting must be turned away from the residential lots on Wood Street and turned off when the site closes.

The planning officers have no authority to enforce how vehicles access the site, but suggest that drivers follow a route via the B9132 Newlands Road, Newhouse Road and Wood Street.

The agent has also confirmed to the Falkirk Council that all contractors using the site will be notified of the route plan for vehicles to keep them off the neighborhood streets on their journey to and from the site.
