The Committee received an application for full planning permission.

The application sought approval for the erection of a two storey dwelling containing two one-bedroom flats on the land behind 27-29 Mill Road.  The proposed works would involve the demolition of an existing outhouse.

Mr Owers (Applicant’s Architect) addressed the Committee in support of the application.

Councillor Robertson (Petersfield Ward Councillor) addressed the Committee about the application. 

The representation covered the following areas:

  i.  parking issues, specifically how the loss of one parking space would be an issue, as parking was at a premium

  ii.  the effect on the Conservation area, and the danger of setting a precedent, given the historic pattern of development in the area;

  iii.  expressed concern that the proposal was not compliant with Cambridge Local Plan (2006) policies 3/4 and 3/10.


The Committee:

Resolved (by 5 votes to 0 with 2 abstentions) 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 in the main report.
