Buildbase branch plans under fire

Residents of Kenilworth are objecting to plans from builders merchant Bailey Buildbase to build a new builders merchant branch in the town.
A number of objections have also been submitted, along with a petition, to Warwick District Council outlining concerns about noise, traffic and light pollution from the proposed replacement builders merchants trade sales building, showroom, warehouse and storage yard.

Bailey Buildbase, part of Grafton Merchanting GB, wants to widen access to Warwick Road, install 2.4m high palisade boundary fencing and yard lighting columns.

The plans are because Warwickshire County Council is planning to use the Bailey Buildbase site in Priory Road to develop the train station in Kenilworth.

Residents are concerned about HGVs and the current parking situation in the surrounding roads. However, the proposed site has been a builders merchant in the past and was vacated by Wolseley in 2008.

Public consultation on the plans closes on Monday October 17.
