The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for the erection of 9, 2-bedroom flats and associated works.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the application from a local resident. The representation covered the following issues:


i.  The objection was from 7 neighbours concerning the impact of the proposed development on Austin Drive. 

ii.  Construction traffic will have to travel along Austin drive

iii.  There would be damage to roads and surfaces arising from the construction and questioned who would remedy any damage caused.

iv.  Questioned the impact on drainage as not all drains were adopted.

v.  The ad hoc parking of construction vehicles and construction personnel would cause issues for residents and questioned how it would be prevented and who would be responsible for enforcement.

vi.  The constant construction vehicle movements would be potentially dangerous for children playing in the area.


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


The Committee:


Unanimously resolved 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.
