The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for the erection of a dwelling and associated works on land to the rear of 1 Fen Road, fronting Fallowfields, Cambridge.


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


The representation covered the following issues:

  i.  Referred to his written representation.

  ii.  Suggested the application was not in accordance with Local Plan policy 3/1, 3/10 or 52.

  iii.  Expressed the following concerns:

·  The design was poor and detrimental to the character of the area. Previous applications had been refused due to poor design.

·  The application added to the number of houses in the area by stealth.


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


The Committee:


Resolved (by 5 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.
