The application is to demolish the current buildings at the Sandbank Estate in Cumeragh Lane and construct 11 modern units on adjoining land.

In addition, an existing dwelling, Sandbank House, accessible from Ashley Lane, would make way for a new residential building.

In February 2021, a similar industrial unit project was rejected by Council, but these plans also included a preliminary planning application for the development of up to 10 houses.

A commentary on the new proposal claimed that, should these plans go ahead, a new application would be made for additional accommodation once the existing estate had been demolished.

Whittingham Parish Council lodged an objection, saying there was no justification for the industrial development project in the countryside.

The parish council suggests that the existing units be demolished and replaced, allowing for gradual redevelopment of the site.

Despite this, a report to the planning committee says the benefits of the application – including economic growth and improving the appearance of the area – tip the scales in favor of its approval.

UCU General Secretary Jo Grady said: “The university sector continues to bring in tens of billions of pounds every year.

“But the staff running it have endured 13 years of real-life pay cuts and the indignity of trying to make ends meet on exploitative and precarious contracts.

“The exorbitantly paid Vice-Chancellors have serious questions to answer as to why they have let staff salaries fall by more than 25% since 2009, leaving them more exposed to the cost of living crisis.

“The staff does not ask for the world. They want secure contracts, decent pay and manageable workloads.

The Universities and Colleges Union (UCU) estimates that staff compensation has fallen by more than a quarter (25.5%) in real terms since 2009.

A total of 68 universities have strikes lasting up to 10 days.

Grady said: ‘Instead of listening to their employees’ longstanding concerns, employers have pushed them to the breaking point, and now half are reporting signs of depression.

“During these strikes, student support has been overwhelming. By the thousands they have lobbied their Vice-Chancellors, and we are proud that on Wednesday 2 March they will go on strike across the UK alongside staff.

“It is high time this world-class industry stopped depriving itself of the goodwill and dedication of its people and started treating them with dignity.

  • Next week: (wage and working conditions disputes only – 63 establishments): 3 days; Monday February 28, Tuesday March 1 and Wednesday March 2.

This are: February 21, 22, 28 followed by March 1 and 2. This is due to a national dispute over wages and conditions in the higher education sector, including the 2021/2022 staff compensation award.
