    RESOLVED

     

    Conditional Permission, subject to the Conditions and Informatives set out in the original report, and the two additional Conditions set out below.  Decision delegated to Head of Planning & Economic Development. 

     

    (a)   Prior to the occupation of any of the dwellings hereby approved, full details of the “bin collection point” area, including means of enclosure, as shown on the Site Layout Plan hereby approved (Drawing No. 918:1119/PL100) shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the LPA and it shall thereafter be retained for its stated purpose.

    Reason: To ensure that space is provided within the development for residents to store their waste bins on the day of collection, and to ensure that appearance of the bin collection point is acceptable.

     

    (b)  The dwellings hereby permitted shall not be occupied unless the five-bay detached car port has been built in accordance with the approved drawings (Site Layout Plan (Drawing No. 918:1119/PL100) and elevational drawings (Drawing No. 918:1119/PL105).  This car port shall thereafter be retained in this position and retained for the parking of vehicles associated with the residential occupation of the dwellings on the site. 

    Reason: To ensure sufficient parking is available within the site, to reduce on-street parking in the area and avoid inconvenience and safety issues to other road users; and to ensure that the third dwelling permitted under planning permissions CH/2018/0366/FA and CH/2016/2230/FA is not built, as this would result in an overly dense development which has the potential to adversely affect the character of the area and fail to provide satisfactory amenity space and parking provision for future residents. 

     

    Condition 2 is also to be amended to include submission of all surface materials within the development/access track.

     

    Condition 3 is also to be amended to include submission of surface treatments as part of Tree Protection Plan.

     

     

    Note 3:  Councillor J MacBean re-entered the meeting at 6.48 pm and Councillor C Jones entered the meeting at 6.48 pm.
