Thank you for trying to find out. Not having a go but this is serious and could be another major Featherstone disaster.
The application quoted has nothing to do with the first two items you have mentioned.
The application shown is Station lane. Please take a look at the yellow lines sprayed on the road on Station Lane at the end of Post Office Road. According to this application and the lines drawn the width of Station Lane is going to dramatically reduce in width. As usual no one will give a dam until built and to late to make a fuss.
Looks like the application had also been sent to the town council for comments. Thatís lots of Cllrs who appear to have missed a major negative. Please tell us this is wrong. Otherwise when does the campaign begin to stop this?

Please shoot me down if my picture of events is incorrect.
In November 2012 the poor quality re-surfacing of Station Lane and drains filled with tarmac by the same contractors led to WMDC condemning the new surface. Under guarantee for 2 years the surface would be re-laid in February 2013.
It is now the end of May. Have you spotted the repairs yet? Yes repairs not re-surfacing.
It appears that the re-surfacing has been done. Over the last few days 4 separate small areas have been coated again on the top of the old surface without scraping the existing surface. The result is obviously a raised level. The top of the lane looks like someone steered to the path whilst distracted and only stopped when they hit the curb. Road lines have also been covered.
Given the times of the re-surfacing and the small areas you could be forgiven for thinking that someone has been on a job else where and had some tarmac left to patch up Fev.
 If you could think up how to make Station Lane look worse than it is this is a good job.
Whats worrying is WMDC stated the road was under guarantee. Surly it should be like for like? Has there been a payout or deal struck.

Ironic when a genuine problem/ incorrectness arises there is silence from those who love to comment. You could assume that the Cllrs they communicate with are also silent?
Looks like Station Lane re-surfacing is going to stay a second rate job?

Hurray!
Almost 12 months since Station lane re-surfacing was condemned as a fail. Almost two months since a patch up job that looks like the get out was done. At last the yellow lines and road markings arrived last week. Just in time for a possible law on 15 minute parking on yellow lines. You could not make this stuff up if you tried. Looks like the local council have missed this as they were in a coffee morning. Roll Eyes
