Dear Sir/Madam,    

I am writing to support the proposed changes to the Use Class A3, as recommended in the study (September 2001) published on your website. My community has been adversely affected by the introduction of a fast food outlet / take away which did not require planning permission under the current A3 regulation. Despite my local councilís concerns and desire to reject the application they were unable to refuse planning permission. As a result, we have had to endure a significant increase of road traffic in and out of the establishment with pedestrian safety being seriously compromised.

I sincerely hope that this change is accepted and implemented, and I shall make my views on this issue known to my local MP. Please can you ensure that the contents of this letter are included as part of the consultation process which I understand is now taking place.

Yours faithfully,


Your name
