Decision Maker: Planning

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for erection of detached two bedroom dwelling and associated works at 11 Hinton Avenue, Cambridge.


The Committee noted the error in the description of the Proposal in the Committee report which incorrectly stated that the proposal was for a three bedroom property.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the application from a local resident.


The representation covered the following issues:

  i.  As owner of the property next door to the site he had concerns.

  ii.  Property would overshadow outdoor space.

  iii.  Shadow study was incorrect and in winter months his garden would receive no direct sunlight.

  iv.  Amended design was not an improvement.

  v.  Would be overbearing and would create a feeling of enclosure.

  vi.  Main living area of property would be facing the new building.

 vii.  Would have a negative impact on the streetscape.


Councillor Thornburrow proposed an additional condition regarding the visibility splay of the proposed on-site parking space access route.


The Committee:


Unanimously resolvedto 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 but with modification to the boundary treatment condition to refer to visibility splays, and the inclusion of an informative regarding hedgehogs.
