A LOCAL council is considering using planning legislation to control a haulier's depot, following the renewal of the haulier's operator's licence last week.

This emerged when Wych ayon District Council unsuccessfully objected to the renewal for five years of Henry Warren, trading as El. G. and 0. Warren's three vehicle 0-licence. He has been operating from the same base, at Beckford, near Tewkesbury, for five-and-ahalf years.

Planning procedures could take more than a year to have any effect.

Two residents also made representations against the application, hut West Midlands Licensing Authority Ronald Jackson, while sympathetic towards their complaints, said he could not take them into account.

For the council, John Alexander said that the depot was on a dangerous bend and an articulated vehicle emerging and turning left must cross the carriageway.

He agreed that it would take a long time to eject Warren by using planning legislation. He said there is ;in adequate site a few hundred yards away, and he could see no reason why Warren could nor operate from there.

Alexander wanted the renewal limited to one year, during which the council would look at the problem.
