16/07/2015 - 15/0634/FUL - 6 Hooper Street

The Committee received an application for a minor material amendment to application 13/1465/FUL.


The application sought approval for re-configuration of the bike store; new door arrangement from the utility to the strip of land at the rear of 7 and 8 Hooper Street; move the window serving the bedroom at ground floor flat at 6 Hooper Street to accommodate the change to the bike store; and addition of a canopy to stairs serving the first-floor flat at 6 Hooper Street.


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


The representation covered the following specific objections:

  i.  Blocking his view.

  ii.  Proximity to existing dwellings.

  iii.  Loss of amenity.

  iv.  Sense of enclosure.

  v.  The (new) application would overlook existing properties.


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


The Committee:


Resolved (by 4 votes to 0 with 4 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.
