Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Variation of conditions 2, 3 and 4 imposed under BE/74/18/PL relating to plans condition, materials and omission of parking spaces at rear of property. These changes relate to the dwelling now addressed as 1A Finch Gardens.


The Principal Planning Officer presented the report. Members who spoke discussed the planning history of this site with the dwelling having been allowed on appeal and whether this decision was right in light of West Sussex County Council Highways’ consultation response about some of the proposed parking would now have to be accommodated on-street. Going against the Council’s own parking standards and increasing the parking demands on an already busy road were thought by some as setting a dangerous precedent, though others argued that it was up to the residents of the dwelling to determine how many vehicles they might have and what they considered enough parking. The recommendation was then proposed by Councillor Thurston and seconded by Councillor Edwards.


The Committee




That the application be APPROVED CONDITIONALLY as detailed in the report subject to the conditions as detailed.
