    Deferred Applications - CH/2017/1824/FA & CH/2017/2015/RC

    Minutes:

     

    Rowanlinden, 70 Long Park, Chesham Bois, Buckinghamshire, HP6 5LF

     

    It was reported at the meeting that since the report had been written, the Tree and Landscaping Officer had advised that the plans did not show the correct location of a spruce tree within the curtilage of No. 66 Long Park which overhangs the application site.  The large spruce tree and a Hornbeam near plot 2 would be harmed by the proposed building work.  Officers shared these concerns, with the resulting adverse impact the loss of these trees would have on the character of the area.  It was therefore verbally recommended to Members that the application be deferred to allow Officers to negotiate further changes to plots 1 and 2, to avoid a harmful impact on these trees.

     

    A proposal to defer and delegate to enable further negotiation on amended plans, any decision to be subject to consultation with the Chairman, was put to the Committee and agreed unanimously at a vote.

     

     

    RESOLVED

     

    Defer – minded to approve subject to amended plans being received which allowed for the protection of the spruce and hornbeam trees and providing there were no material changes.  The Director of Services in consultation with the Chairman of the Planning Committee be authorised to determine the application and include in the decision notice such Planning Conditions and reasons for approval, or reasons for refusal as appropriate, bearing in mind the recommendations in the officer’s report, the Committee discussion and amended plans received.

    CH/2018/0265/FA

    The Nags Head Public House, London Road, Little Kingshill, Buckinghamshire, HP16 0DG.

     

    Speaking as the applicant, Mr Michaels

     

    The officer’s recommendation to refuse permission was put to the Committee and voted against. Following a proposal to grant permission it was noted that the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) sets out that for inappropriate development in the Green Belt, very special circumstances need to be demonstrated by the applicant which are sufficient to outweigh the harm to the Green Belt and any other harm.  The Members also noted the harm to the Green Belt, AONB and the listed building, as a heritage asset identified in the officer’s report.  The Chairman therefore proposed an amendment to defer consideration to allow the applicant more time to obtain documentary evidence to demonstrate that very special circumstances exist for this site, which are sufficient to overcome the harm identified. The amendment for deferral was agreed by the Committee.

     

    RESOLVED

     

    Application Deferred.
