Apologies for Absence

Minutes:

Apologies were received from Councillor C Sewell.

Before continuing with the order of business, the Chair proposed that the following items be deferred:

 

Item A1 – application number 23/00173/FULM on the grounds that initial responses regarding sustainability of the site, planning policy, and highway safety matters that were raised by the Committee Members at the technical briefing had only just been received.  Therefore, a deferral would allow officers to fully consider the responses and answers to be provided back to the Committee at the next meeting.

 

Item A3 – application number 24/00203/FUL on the grounds that officers had received evidence that the proposed building was not being constructed in accordance with the submitted plans.  The deferral would allow officers to investigate the matter accordingly.

 

The proposal was seconded by Councillor J Legrys.

 

RESOLVED THAT:

 

Items A1 and A2 be deferred for the reasons outlined above.

Officer’s recommendation: Permit subject to conditions

 

The Planning Officer presented the report to Members.

 

Councillor R Johnson, Ward Member, addressed the Committee.  He was disappointed that photographs of the ‘lean to’ he had submitted had not been included and therefore felt that the application was misleading.  He felt that the applicant had ‘cherry picked’ the policies from the Parish Council’s Neighbourhood Plan and listed all of those that although listed were not applicable.  Concerns were raised in relation to the lack of parking and the impact on an already congested and dangerous highway.  It was commented that the previous planning consent conditioned a traffic management plan which had not been undertaken and he therefore questioned how the building materials would be delivered and the construction vehicles be managed.

 

The Head of Planning and Infrastructure addressed the matters raised and apologised for the missing photographs; however, he confirmed that the application was not misleading as the ‘lean to’ was dangerous and needed to be safely removed.

 

In determining the application Members discussed the existing planning consent for the site and made comparisons with the application in front of them.  Highway concerns were raised as well as the lack of parking and the impact the construction vehicles would have on the area.  Members did comment on the poor state of the current site and acknowledged that the application would improve it, as well as the benefits the development would have for first time buyers and renters.

 

The Officer’s recommendation to permit the application was moved by Councillor R Morris and seconded by Councillor R Canny.

 

The Chair put the motion to the vote.  A recorded vote being required, the voting was as detailed below.

 

The motion was CARRIED.

 

RESOLVED THAT:

 

The application be permitted with conditions in accordance with the recommendation of the Head of Planning and Infrastructure.
