17/04235/FUL - 3 Church Place, Lydicard Millicent, Swindon

Minutes:

Member of the public Bryan Larkin spoke against the application. Cllr Vernon Montgomery from Lydiard Millicent Parish Council spoke against the application.

 

The Team Leader introduced the application for part-retrospective permission for detached annex to rear, front porch and storm water harvesting system to main property and erection of potting/bike shed to the front of the property. A presentation was delivered, including photographs of existing site and proposed plans. It was explained that permissions had already been granted for the site and that the amended proposed plans, had not changed in terms of depth, height and width. The Officer explained that the proposed plans, were not considered to present any significant harm to the character and appearance of the area, nor impact the neighbouring amenities. It was also confirmed that there was no significant overlooking and that the sight was well screened and so not visually prominent in the locality. The Officer’s recommendation was for approval, subject to conditions.

 

Members were invited to ask technical questions and it was confirmed that, there was no precedent in planning law, the site was not in a conservation area and so the potting shed at the front of the property was not comparable to other applications, which had been refused.

 

Members of the public spoke as detailed as above.

 

In the debate that followed, concerns were raised as to the accumulative applications for this development and its partially retrospective nature. Cllr Tony Trotman proposed the Officer’s recommendation, seconded by Cllr Peter Hutton. This was passed by the majority.

5) INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:

The applicant is requested to note that this permission does not affect any private property rights and therefore does not authorise the carrying out of any work on land outside their control. If such works are required it will be necessary for the applicant to obtain the landowners consent before such works commence. If you intend carrying out works in the vicinity of the site boundary, you are also advised that it may be expedient to seek your own advice with regard to the requirements of the Party Wall Act 1996.

 

6) INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:

Any alterations to the approved plans, brought about by compliance with Building Regulations or any other reason must first be agreed in writing with the Local Planning Authority before commencement of work.

 

7) INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:

The applicant should note that the grant of planning permission does not include any separate permission which may be needed to erect a structure in the vicinity of a public sewer. Such permission should be sought direct from Thames Water Utilities Ltd / Wessex Water Services Ltd. Buildings are not normally allowed within 3.0 metres of a Public Sewer although this may vary depending on the size, depth, strategic importance, available access and the ground conditions appertaining to the sewer in question.

 

8) INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:

The Council recommends that the applicant notes and implements the

recommendations of the UK Constructors Group Good Neighbour Site Guide during the construction of the development hereby approved.
