Extension to form 1 No studio flat at first floor level. This application is in CIL Zone 4 (Zero Rated) as flats.


The Planning Officer presented the report with updates. This was followed by 1 Public Speaker.


Members then took part in a full debate on the application where a number of points were raised and responded to by Officers, including:

·       the extension’s protrusion and its impact to the street scene

·       the loss of light to neighbouring properties

·       the material being used for the staircase and whether an alternative could be found, and added to the conditions, to reduce noise

·       clarification of the drainage issues and the impact to neighbouring properties


Cllr Blanchard-Cooper proposed that a condition be added that Officers oversee the materials used for the staircase to minimise noise disruption to neighbouring properties. This was seconded by Cllr Thurston and, after a vote, was CARRIED and thereafter formed part of the substantive conditions of the application.


The substantive recommendations were then proposed and seconded.


The Committee




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