I have put a supportive comment on the planning application, and suggested both the case officer and the contractors check our website for details about various 'Motorhome Servicing Points', ass the installation of these, would be easiest at build stage.

Re: Motorhome Planning application - NeEw Service station complex with Motorhome parking24 as of 04/01/21.

My Submission, 5th January 2021, to David Dalzell, the Chartered Landscape Architect and Chartered Town Planner on the proposed application.

Mr Dalzell

As a motorhome owner, and member of http://www.campra.org.uk it is great to see the Plan of this new service station at Lismacarol Roundabout, shows HGV's, Caravans and Motorhomes will be catered for in the parking area, allowing them to park separately and avail of the services within the shopping area of the service station, including a restaurant.

It is just a pity, though, that the needs of the motorhome owners had not been taken to the next level. At Building stage, this would have been the ideal time to propose the inclusion of a "Motorhome Service Point". - the DIY Drive through option in the first attachment would be ideal. The second image of four at the bottom of the second attachment would be of similar aspect. See attachments from our group.

Whether these suggestions could be retrospectively applied for, on behalf of the Applicant, W&J Chambers Limited, I am not aware. I do note the Standard Consultation Expiry Date is 21 January 2021.
An Ideal location, if Septic draining and fresh water supply allowed would be at the end of the complex, beside the HGV Fuelling point (L) on the map plan.



Response reply received Monday 11th January 2021 from David Dalzell, Chartered Landscape Architect and Chartered Town Planner.

Hi Paul,

Thank for your email, we welcome your comments! We are very keen that this proposal should meet the needs of all users on the new A6 dualling, and there is no doubt facilities for motorhomes are sorely lacking in the North-west region generally. This is an application for outline planning permission and the site layout is indicative at this stage, so it is certainly not too late for us to consider your suggestion of a Motorhome Service Point on the site. Personally I think this is a great idea and I will look into how this could work on the site as you suggest. If you think there is anything else we might consider in the meantime please let me know and do keep in touch.

Thanks again for your input!

Regards,

David
