MINUTES - To Follow pdf icon PDF 80 KB

    Minutes:

    The Chairman welcomed all the attendees to the meeting and explained the procedure for speakers.

     

    The Chairman then moved to discuss the minutes of the previous meeting.

     

    Councillor Simberg noted an error in the minutes, in that Councillor Bokaei was now Vice-Chairman of the Committee.

    Councillor Richman noted that her name had been incorrectly spelt in the minutes and should be corrected to Helene.

     

    Councillor Simberg, seconded by Councillor Richman proposed to amend the minutes for the Sweet Tree Fields Marsh Lane item as follows:

    -       To add the word possibly to the following sentence;

    ‘The Scientific importance of the use of land as it is now, will cause an adverse effect on the land, which possibly will not be able to be recovered in future years.

               

                The Committee voted on the amendment as follows:

    For

    6

    Against

    0

                RESOLVED that the minutes be amended.

                 

    Councillor Richman, seconded by Councillor Fluss, proposed to amend the reasons for approval of 143 Edgwarebury:

    The original wording was as follows:

    -       The Committee did not feel the application was an over development, as the extension was very similar to the neighbours and was visually the same.

    -       There was no negative affect on the amenity.

    -       There was no negative affect to the character of the overall property, as the extension could only be seen from the back garden.

    -       That the extension for which retention is sought was not detrimental in character to the existing dwellinghouse and wider locality under DMO1.

    Proposed to be amended to:

    Whereas the Committee recognised, that the size of the extension was not consistent with the normal requirements of the guidelines of the SPD, it considered that there were exceptional reasons to allow the application, against the advice of the officers namely:

    n  The extension was similar in terms of protrusion to the existing extensions to the neighbouring properties on either side, was visually consistent therewith, and had no negative effect on the amenities of the neighbours

    n  The in situ development was not unsympathetic to the existing dwelling house and had no negative impact on the character of the overall property

    n  The extension is in the rear and visible only from the back garden and is  not detrimental in any way to the street scene and wider locality under DMO1

    The Committee voted on the amendment as follows:

    For

    5

    Against

    1

     

    RESOLVED that the minutes be amended.

     

    The Head of Governance noted that officers in attendance of the meeting on the 30th May, were not in agreement with the amendments and believed the original wording to be an accurate record.

     

    RESOLVED that subject to the amendments voted on above, the minutes of the meeting held on the 30th May 2019 be agreed as a correct record.

     

    *As Councillor O’Macualey was not present at the meeting on the 30th May, which the minutes relate to, he was unable to participate in the voting of this item.
