24/05/2016 - 15/1941/LBC - 48 New Square

The Committee received an application for listed building consent.

 

The application sought approval for listed building consent to convert existing end terrace known as No.48 New Square, three self-contained flats, demolition of existing garage and erection of one self-contained studio-flat and removal of 4No. parking bays accessed via Willow Walk and erection of two  self-contained flats. All with associated landscaping and access arrangements.

 

The Committee noted the amendments detailed in the amendment sheet.

 

The Committee received representations in objection to the application from two local residents detailed in minute 16/70/Plan (Planning reference 15/1940/FUL)  

 

Peter McKeown (Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application.

 

Councillor Bick and Councillor Gillespie (Market Ward Councillors) addressed the Committee about the application detailed in minute 16/70/Plan (Planning reference 15/1940/FUL).

 

The Committee:

 

Resolved (by 5 votes to 1) to refuse the application contrary to the officer recommendation for the following reason:

 

1.  The proposed two storey building on the Willow Walk frontage which includes modifications to the boundary wall on Willow Walk would harm the special interests of the listed building on site and its setting.  The development is therefore contrary to policy 4/10 of the Cambridge Local Plan 2006.
