The proposed turning area was shown on the plans, but it was noted that it was not formally part of the application.


A selection of photos provided by Local Member Cllr Errington were also shown.


Members were then able to ask technical questions of the Officer where the position of the neighbouring property no.17 was clarified in relation to the proposed development.


The Officer explained that with regards to the boundary treatments, nothing had been shown on the submitted plan. There was no reference of a fence at all on the northern boundary, but there was in the south. The report included a condition on boundary treatments should the application be approved. The position of the proposed car parking below phoenix collage was also clarified.


Members of the public as detailed above, then had the opportunity to speak on the application.


Some points covered included that the applicant and his wife wished to downsize due to the mobility constraints of his wife, but remain on the site, in close proximity to their daughter who would remain living in Cleveland House with her young children.


A professional report was commissioned to assess two areas of concern, which were the rainwater run-off and the retaining wall. This had been used to adapt the plans to combat those areas of concern.


Cleveland houses garden was significantly larger than any other garden in the area, and if developed as proposed, the remaining garden space would still be larger than that of any of the 9 local properties.


Modifications had been made to the plans to address the feedback received from the parish council.


The Parish council objected to the application as it was felt to contradict the Tisbury Neighbourhood Plan.
