Minutes:

The Area Team Leader (North), Lee Burman, introduced a report which recommended granting planning permission, subject to conditions, for a garage conversion and additional single storey side extension. The Committee was verbally advised of a late submission by the Agent and it was confirmed that it reflected closely the application submissions and so had been taken into account in the report prepared and the recommendation.

 

 

Key issues highlighted included, principle of the development, parking provision and highway safety, impact on the scale and character of the existing site/buildings, impact on neighbour amenity.

 

Members of the Committee then had the opportunity to ask technical questions of the officer which focused on: the need to consider fire safety issues following the relocation of the kitchen on the ground floor of the dwelling.

 

There were no members of the public attending the meeting and therefore, the Committee did not receive any comments from the public about the application.

 

Councillor Mollie Groom, Division Member, spoke in objection to the application with the main points focusing on the impact on the surrounding highway due to the removal of a garage parking space, and the availability of appropriate space at the front of the property to park two cars.

 

At the start of the debate a proposal was moved by Councillor Gavin Grant, seconded by Councillor Peter Hutton to grant planning permission as detailed in the report.

 

Resolved:
