I’ve no idea how planning permission was obtained to build a new house at The Entry opposite Diss Church Junior School.

Parents quite rightly,– are not allowed to drive up The Entry to drop their children off because it is a narrow lane unable to cope with two way traffic and pedestrians, so to be greeted last week by a JCB trundling up the The Entry at precisely 8.30am, when most children are arriving at school, was really quite staggering.

Could the planning consent at least not have imposed some restrictions on the times when traffic is able to access the site?

As far as I am aware the parents of children were not consulted, ( I certainly wasn’t), and given an opportunity to present their views on the planning application. Quite where the usual notice of planning was pinned up advising of the application is also mystery to me, but then, the less people who know the less chance of an objection.
