Erection of 3 no. 2 bedroom dwellings with associated parking and landscape. This application is in CIL Zone 2 and is CIL liable as new dwellings.
The Planning Team Leader presented the report.
Members then took part in a full debate on the application where a number of points were raised and responded to by Officers, including:
· Query raised regarding the energy statement
· Concern raised regarding the location of the associated parking as this covered a number of roads
· Query over the lack of response from the Tree Officer
The Planning Team Leader confirmed that at condition 3 it detailed energy conservation/energy sources it was also confirmed that as the council was the landowner it could impose whatever conditions it wanted. In reference to the comments made about the sufficient parking, it was confirmed that a survey completed in 2021 allowed for 200-meter walking distance from the location. It was also confirmed that condition 5 covered the response from the Tree Officer for this application.
There was a 30 minute adjournment due to technical issues discovered with the live stream to allow for Officers to investigate and resolve.
On returning from the adjournment the recommendation was duly proposed and seconded.
That the application be APPROVED CONDITIONALLY as detailed in the report subject to the conditions detailed.
