Many objections are about the height/massing of the proposal. It would be very useful to have a proper 3-D model so that every possible viewpoint could be assessed. This is routinely done on sensitive projects of this size. In fact this is the best way to clear up any misunderstandings about the impact on the immediate surroundings. It can also show the full impact of overshadowing.
As with parking, the use of the Spires car park makes sense as it lies empty at night. Across the road is the Stapylton Road car park, free after 6.30 and fairly empty at night.
