Assembly of God Pentecostal. Planning permission expanding the activities for this church at Unit 7 Norbury Trading Estate (7 Craignish Avenue) has been rejected.  The reasons are:

  • ‘The development would result in the loss of an employment generating land/use and it has not been demonstrated that there is no demand for the existing lawful employment land/use’.
  • ‘The development would harm the amenity of adjoining occupiers through noise disturbance’.
  • ‘It has not been demonstrated that the proposal would not harm the smooth and safe operation of the transport and highway network.’

The Love Norbury Joint Planning Committee submitted an objection to this application, particularly stressing the loss of employment space.
