PLANS to bring a new hand car wash business to Platts Common have been resubmitted to Barnsley Council – just weeks after being rejected by the planning board.

An application was originally submitted in June last year to create the business on Platts Common Industrial Estate.

The plans sought to turn the land into a hand car wash – which included a staff room as well as staff and visitor parking. However, the council rejected these plans late last month.

A report states: “In the opinion of the local planning authority the proposed development would result in the intensification in use of a sub-standard access potentially leading to queuing vehicles in busy times.

“No information has been supplied relating to what equipment will be used, what noise levels will be emitted and how any noise will be mitigated.

“Furthermore, there is no information in terms of protecting the neighbouring units and associated parking areas from any over spray that may occur from the pressure washers.”

However, applicant Wayne Hadfield has resubmitted his plans to the council’s planning board in hopes the application will this time be approved.

A total of 30 neighbouring properties have been made aware of the plans with no appeals to date. Public consultation ends on May 3.
