Section 73A: Variation of condition 2: Approved plans, of planning permission 16/02967/HOUSE

Present: - Councillors; Jonathan Rabbitts (JR), Chris Tonge (CT), Liam Robson (LR)  and Deana Carpenter (DC)  and Alan Breadmore – Clerk

Apologies: -  Councillors; Sue Tulloch (ST) ,Jane Haddock (JH) 

Declarations of Interest: - None

 
The Outcome was OBJECT for the following reasons. 
 
The applicant appears to have exhibited a flagrant disregard for the terms of the original planning approval.
The Parish Council only approved the original application after receiving reassurances from the applicant regarding the (non) removal of trees and addressing the concerns of the owner of neighbouring property, Field End.
These matters were highlighted to WBC in the Parish Council's original response on 18//11/2016.
Both of these matters have been disregarded by the applicant.
Further, the variation request included in this application aggravates the concerns regarding the imposing nature of the extension.
Councillors are lay people in these matters but it is their opinion that plans submitted under this variation, still do not reflect what has actually been built to date ref. the building height and apparent dormer windows.
Councillors consider this to be a serious matter for planning enforcement , such that the building work should be constrained only to the originally approved plans.
 
Councillors are concerned that any lack of enforcement sets a serious precedent for unrestrained development to the detriment of the community.

The Outcome was NO OBJECTIONS
However Councillors made the following observations : -
  • The application is poorly described and the extent of the alterations required considerable interpretation since no commentary on the changes was provided. The application involves significantly more changes than the brief description in the proposal indicated.
  • The conversion of garage space always raises concerns, particularly for this property since it is adjacent to one of the major road junctions in the village where street parking is unsafe. Councillors request that officers ensure  that adequate off street parking is still available after the change of use of the garage.
