Preet Kaur Gill MP has joined hundreds of residents in objecting to a planning application on Ridgacre Road West in Quinton.
The application seeks permission for the erection of 12 apartments. However, the apartments would be directly against the boundary wall of the M5 and next to an electricity pylon.
Preet Kaur Gill, MP for Birmingham Edgbaston said, "This planning application shows a complete disregard for residents. No part of this application has residents in mind and will be a blow to the community should it be approved."
There is strong feeling in the local community about the impact it will have on parking in the area as well as the impact to those who will live in the property with noise and air pollution both being major issues. Almost 300 residents have come forward to sign a petition against the development.
Preet continued, "As you can see from the petition, there is strong feeling from neighbours against this development. And they are absolutely right. Who would want to live almost on top of the M5. The noise that will be generated is anti-social and goes against all British Standards for developments like this. It is for these reasons I have written my own letter of objection and residents here have my full support in fighting this application."
