Outline application (all matters reserved) for the erection of 2No. dwellings

Minutes:

Councillor Ted Clarke as local ward Councillor vacated the Chair.  Councillor Nat Green as Vice-Chairman presided as Chairman for this item.

 

Councillor Tony Parsons as local ward Councillor left the table during consideration of this item, took no part in the debate and did not vote on this item.

 

The Principal Planning Officer introduced the outline application (all matters reserved) for the erection of 2 dwellings and confirmed that the Committee had undertaken a site visit that morning to assess the impact of the proposed development on neighbouring properties and the surrounding area.

 

The Principal Planning Officer drew Members’ attention to the Schedule of Additional Letters which included representations from the agent acting for the applicant and SC Trees in relation to trees on the site and advised that if Members were minded to approve the application Condition 4 should be amended to include details regarding the Arboricultural Impact Assessment and to state that the development be implemented in accordance with the approved details.

 

Mr Rod Hudson, on behalf of Bayston Hill Parish Council spoke against the proposal in accordance with Shropshire Council’s Scheme for Public Speaking at Planning Committees.

 

In accordance with the Local Protocol for Councillors and Officers dealing with Regulatory Matters (Part 5, Paragraph 15.1), Councillor Ted Clarke addressed the Committee as the local ward Councillor, made a statement and then left the table, took no part in the debate and did not vote on this item. During his statement, a number of points were raised including the following:

 

·         The developer had not taken the existing street scene into account;

·         Pulley Lane was a busy commuter route used extensively by Bayston Hill residents; and

·         There was a need for smaller house types in Bayston Hill such as bungalows. 

 

Mr Andrew Balshaw, agent for the applicant spoke in support of the proposal in accordance with Shropshire Council’s Scheme for Public Speaking at Planning Committees.

 

In response to Members the Principal Planning Officer explained that the site would easily accommodate 2 dwellings and noted that it would be unreasonable to request a certain house type but an informative could be added to the decision notice in relation to the desirability of providing more bungalows within the parish to meet local need. Additionally he stated that if Members were concerned in regards to the impact on the house to the north a request for a shadowing diagram could be added to an informative. 

 

Having considered the submitted plans for the proposal and noted the comments of all the speakers, Members unanimously expressed the view that the application be approved as per the Officer’s recommendation subject to the amendments discussed in relation to Condition 4 and the inclusion of an informative in regards to the preferred house type and the impact on the property to the north.

 

RESOLVED:

That planning permission be granted as per the Officer’s recommendation subject to:

 

·      The Conditions as set out in Appendix 1 of the report;

 

·      Condition 4 being amended as follows:

 

The following information shall  ...  view the full minutes text for item 114.
