The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for a covered area to side of dwelling to provide support to an existing first/second floor extension which was inadequately supported.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the application from Mr Loades.


The representation covered the following issues:


  i.  Was not initially against the application.

  ii.  Had requested an adequate gap between the two buildings to allow for maintenance.

  iii.  Fences had been removed and digging work commenced prior to the granting of permission.

  iv.  Applicant had submitted three applications and the plan had been changed repeatedly.

  v.  Concerned about future building work.

  vi.  Similar extension in the street had all allowed a bigger gap between build lines and there was no need to build so close to neighbour.

 vii.  Extension was currently supported by poles.

viii.  Requested that application be rejected until concerns were addressed.


The Committee:


Resolved (by 7 votes to 0, with 1 abstention) to grant the application for planning permission in accordance with the officer recommendation, for the reasons set out in the officer report, and subject to the conditions recommended by the officers.
