Public Participation

Mr Richard Loveday spoke in objection to the application.

 

Lee Burman, Area Team Leader, presented a report which recommended that permission be granted for a two storey dwelling. Key issues were stated to include the principle of the development, parking provision, impact upon residential amenity and the material significance of the site application history including appeal decisions.

 

Members of the Committee then had the opportunity to ask technical questions about the application. Details were sought about the history of the site, and it was confirmed that three previous applications for very similar dwellings on the site had been granted on appeal, though each permission had expired prior to construction.

 

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

 

The Committee debated the application, discussing parking access and overlooking of neighbouring properties, and it was stated Highways officers were satisfied the access arrangements were sufficient, and that current issues on the site had been present for those applications granted on appeal.

 

Councillor Peter Hutton moved a motion to approve in accordance with the officer’s recommendation, seconded by Councillor Chuck Berry, and it was,

Public Participation

David Pearce, agent, spoke in support of the application.

Cllr Palmer, Grittleton Parish Council, spoke in support of the application.

 

Mark Staincliffe, Area Team Leader, presented a report that recommended permission be refused for the proposed conversion of Stables to form dormitories and listed building consent for the works. Key issues were stated to include the listed status of the stables in their own right as well as the impact upon the listed Grittleton House, the impact upon the area of outstanding natural beauty and the principle of the development. It was stated conversion and alteration to maintain the site was felt by officers to be acceptable, but that substantial demolition as proposed was not appropriate.

 

Members of the Committee had the opportunity to ask technical questions of the officer. Details were sought on the access to the site, location of Grittleton House in relation to the stables and the level of public harm to the listed buildings.

 

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

 

The Committee then debated the application. A motion to refuse in accordance with the officer’s recommendation was moved by Councillor Chuck Berry, seconded by Councillor Tony Trotman, but following discussion of the use of the site and the specific impact from the proposals, the motion was withdrawn. A motion to defer the application for a site visit to take place was moved by Councillor Toby Sturgis and seconded by Councillor Peter Hutton.
