Parkgate Road Campus University of Chester Parkgate Road Chester CH1 4BJ – Erection of a three storey Laboratory building and a two storey Engineering Design Suite (Use Classes D1) with associated cycle parking, landscaping and associated works; and rationalisation of existing car parks and creation of an additional 20 parking spaces.

Comments: The Chester Civic Trust has the following comments on this application:

Both sites are currently used as surface car parks so development will result in a loss of 55 spaces within the campus with a large increase in the number of staff and students using the site. This will result in significant increases in overspill parking impacts in the residential streets surrounding the campus which will increase traffic congestion and reduce road safety for motorists and pedestrians.
