Public Participation

Mr Andrew Tregay, agent, spoke in support of the application.

 

The Development Control Team Leader, Mr Lee Burman, presented the report which recommended permission be refused for creation of a new pedestrian access at The King’s Arms, Calne. Key issues included the principle of the proposal, impact upon the setting, character and appearance on the listed building and the area and impact on amenities. It was confirmed there were five existing ground floor accesses into the building, and there had not been a door at some stage in the proposed location for the new access.

 

Members of the Committee had the opportunity to ask technical questions of the officer.

 

Members of the public then had the opportunity to address the Committee with their views, as detailed above.

 

A debate followed, where the historic and present nature of the building was discussed, along with the impact of the proposal, and whether there were any public benefits to outweigh any harm to the character and appearance of the building.

 

A motion was moved by Councillor Peter Hutton, seconded by Councillor Howard Greenman, to refuse the application in accordance with the officer’s recommendation.

 

Subsequently to the vote, a motion was moved by Councillor Peter Hutton, seconded by Councillor Chuck Berry, to refuse the listed building consent in accordance with the officer’s recommendation.

 

Resolved:

 

That planning permission is REFUSED, for the following reason:

 

1

The works proposed would not contribute to the significance or sustainability of the heritage asset and would result in the unjustified loss of historic fabric, which fails to preserve or enhance the listed building. The works, resulting in less than substantial harm, are not required to secure the optimum viable use of the heritage asset and would have no public benefits. The proposal is therefore contrary to Core Policy 58 of the Wiltshire Core Strategy, Paragraphs 131, 132 and 134 of the National Planning Policy Framework and Section 66 (1) of the Planning (Listed Building and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.

Public Participation

Mr Andrew Miles, agent, spoke in support of the application.

 

Mr Mark Staincliffe, Development Control Team Leader, presented the recommendation that permission be granted for the erection of two detached dwellings within the grounds of Oak Hill House, Upper Seagry. Key issues were stated to include the principle of the development, impact on the character and appearance of the area and the proposed access. It was stated an appeal had been granted at the site for two dwellings with an indicative layout, and that the village had a mix of styles of dwellings.

 

Members of the Committee had the opportunity to ask technical details of the officers. Clarification was sought on the specific area covered by the application, which did not include all the land in the possession of the applicants, and it was confirmed the proposed dwellings remained within the site application line.

 

Members of the public then had the opportunity to present their views to the Committee, as detailed above.

 

The Committee then debated the application, noting the acceptance of the principle of two dwellings and assessing if the proposed dwellings were not excessive. It was also noted the site lay within the village boundary line, making the proposals infill development.

 

The Committee also discussed drainage concerns and discussed the proposed access which had been granted on appeal, and whether the addition of a white line permitting parking on one side of the road had any impact upon the lack of objection from Highways.

 

A motion was moved by Councillor Toby Sturgis to approve the application delegate to the Area Development Manager to approve the application in accordance with officer recommendations, subject to confirmation from officers from Highways that there remained no objection to the proposed access in light of the street parking located opposite the site entrance. The motion was seconded by Councillor Molly Groom.

 

Resolved:

 

To delegate to the Area Development Manager to approve that application subject to confirmation from the Council Highways Officer that no objection is raised in relation to the proposed access, and subject to the following conditions:

 

The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration   of three years from the date of this permission.

REASON:   To comply with the provisions of Section 91 of the Town                           and Country Planning Act 1990 as amended by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

 

 

 

2

REASON: The application contained insufficient information to enable this matter to be considered prior to granting planning permission.
