The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for the demolition of existing dwelling and erection of 3 detached houses.


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


The representation covered the following issues:

  i.  Speaking on behalf of other neighbours.

  ii.  Proposal was overdevelopment.

  iii.  Large building would produce a feeling of enclosure.

  iv.  Would be overbearing and would result in overlooking.

  v.  Increased traffic would be problematic.

  vi.  Access path to rear properties lacked a passing place.

 vii.  Impact on sunlight and daylight would be problematic.


John Dadge (Applicant’s Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application.


Councillor Richard Johnson (Abbey Ward Councillor) supplied a statement which was circulated to the Committee.


The Committee:


Resolved (by 6 votes to 1) 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.
