The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for a single storey pitched roof extension to the rear of the property.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the application from Professor Owens.


The representation covered the following issues:


  i.  Overdevelopment of the site.

  ii.  Development dominant and overbearing.

  iii.  Loss of light, ventilation and outlook for neighbouring properties.

  iv.  Errors in the officer’s report.

  v.  Loss of residential amenity.

  vi.  Detrimental effect on residential properties.


Mr David Lewis addressed the Committee on behalf of the applicant and in support of the application.


Resolved(unanimously) to grant the application for planning permission in accordance with officer recommendation, for the reasons set out in the officer report, subject to the conditions recommended by the officers – and the following additional condition:


Notwithstanding the approved drawings, no development shall take place until a revised ground floor plan, on which the set-back of the north wall of the extension from the common boundary with No.23 corresponds with the 100mm distance shown on the approved west elevation, has been submitted to, and approved in writing by, the local planning authority. Development shall take place only in accordance with the revised drawing submitted to discharge this condition.


Reason: In the interests of clarity, and to protect the amenity of neighbouring occupiers (Cambridge Local Plan 2006 policy 3/4)
