(The site was viewed by the Site Viewing Working Party)

 

Proposal:       Single storey extension (south); first floor (north) extension; render and cladding; attached garage and new access on Southwood Road.

 

The Committee considered the written report and recommendation to grant permission

 

The Committee received supplementary information, circulated prior to the meeting which included:

 

(1)         update sheets including an amendment to condition 2 and adding a new condition 5; and

 

(2)         written deputations from Mr Robinson, the applicant’s agent and Councillor Turner.

 

The Committee considered a request from Mr Robinson that the application be deferred for the following reasons:

 

(i)           the report did have not a fair and balanced content to enable the Members to make a clear and effective decision and flouted the basic principle of natural justice;

 

(ii)          the anxieties and fears by local residents, based on previous experience and the impact of approving this application had not been mentioned in the report; and

 

(iii)         the previous history of the site, where planning controls and conditions had been ignored repeatedly by the applicant and no action apparently taken by the enforcement team at all or until forced to have to do.

 

The Committee was recommended not to accede to Mr Robinson’s request as he had not given specific reasons for deferral. The Committee was reminded that

(1)             a summary of representations received was included in the report and the members had an opportunity to view these representations in full; and

 

(2)             a number of the concerns raised by objectors were not material considerations, which not be addressed in the report.

 

The Committee was addressed by the following deputees:

 

a)           Mr Robinson advised the Committee of the history of attempts to develop this land and reported the issues experienced by the residents in the past. He supported his written deputation by highlighting the following issues:

 

              1.           the proposal would have a detrimental impact on his property; and

 

              2.           if granted, there would be applications for further development of the site which would result in an inappropriate development which would have a detrimental impact on the character of the area and neighbouring properties

 

              Mr Robinson requested that if the Committee was minded to grant permission it add conditions or require a legal agreement to prevent further development of the site.

 

(b)          Mr Barry, on behalf of the applicant, supported his written deputation by highlighting the following reasons for granting permission:

 

              1.           the application should be considered on its own merits;

 

              2.           when determining the application, the Committee should only consider material considerations; and

 

              3.           future development of the site would require the permission of the Council.

 

(c)          Councillor Turner acknowledged that the Committee was only required to consider material planning considerations and supported her written deputation by:

 

              1.           advising that she was pleased to learn that her concerns about visibility splays would be addressed by a condition; and

 

              2.           requesting the Committee to take into account the amount of concerns raised by neighbours.
