The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for erection of two 3 x bed detached dwellings, along with car parking, cycle parking and associated landscaping.


Mr McKeown (Applicant’s Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application.


Councillor Herbert (Coleridge Ward Councillor) addressed the Committee about the application.


The representation covered the following issues:

  i.  Conditions were required to mitigate the impact of the application on neighbours. The character of Cherry Hinton Road should be considered.

  ii.  Asked that condition 4 be amended to have a 2m high fence on the eastern boundary of the development.

  iii.  People should be mindful of the tree to the rear of no.175 which overhangs the application.
