    Speaking as the local District Member, Councillor P Martin, outlined local concerns due to the size of the development.

     

    The written views of Councillor Phillips were read out to Members in his absence. It was noted that at a previous Committee Meeting in 2016 Councillor Phillips had declared a personal interest regarding the 2016 applications because he lived in the road but was not close by and had no direct interest.

     

    The officer recommendation to grant conditional permission was put to the Committee by the Chairman and voted against.

     

    Councillor Gladwin proposed refusal of the application

    by reason of policy H4 and GC3, out of character in the streetscene in an Established Residential Area of Special Character, and harmful to amenity of neighbouring property by reason of proximity of elements at rear. This proposal was seconded by Councillor MacBean and agreed at a vote.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    Refused Permission by reason of policy H4 and GC3, out of character in the street scene in an Established Residential Area of Special Character, and harmful to amenity of neighbouring property by reason of proximity of elements at rear.

    Speaking for the applicant, Mr Aidan Briggs

     

    Officers gave a verbal update regarding the comments of the Historic Buildings Officer who requested an informative if permission were to be granted for the Applicant to seek advice regarding the possible need for listed building consent, if any changes were to be made to the building. 

     

    Officers also verbally updated Members of an omission in the report. The later highway comments referred to on page 19 regarding the current use of site generated 38 movements (two-way) per day whilst the proposed use is assessed as generating around 97 (two-way) movements per day. 

     

    Officers also verbally advised that Condition 5 in the report should be deleted, as it was not necessary.

     

    Councillor Rose proposed a deferral of the application which was amended by Councillor Wertheim in order for Officers to clarify the following matters and bring a subsequent report back to the Planning Committee:

    2.     To contact Ofsted/Education Department to ascertain amenity requirements for a nursery.

    The written views of Councillor Phillips were read out to Members in his absence.

     

    During the discussion, Members advised that an email had been received by them from a previous owner of the property, advising that bats could be present in the existing roof space.  As this was new information, Officers clarified that this could not be the subject of a Condition and that the applicant would need to undertake a Phase 1 bat survey, to clarify whether bats are present.
