Also Present: three members of the public

MEMBERS HAD BEEN ADVISED BY MEANS OF THE AGENDA THAT IF THEY HAD AN INTEREST TO DECLARE IN ANY AGENDA ITEM, THEY SHOULD DO SO IN ADVANCE OF THE MEETING IN THE BOOK PROVIDED FOR THIS PURPOSE.

Cllr Sprent declared a personal interest Agenda item 5(ii) (Minute 31(ii)) and took no part in the discussion or decision making

In the absence of the Chairman of the Committee, Cllr C Dalton, Cllr Coveley was elected Chairman for the meeting

26. APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE – none

27. MINUTES OF THE PREVIOUS MEETING HELD ON 14th July 2010

circulated with the Agenda were signed as a correct and accurate record

i)        Minute 20(i) Land by Wheatley Windmill – Three enforcement notices are still waiting to be signed by the Legal Dept at SODC.

i)        P10/W0631 (Minor) 112 London Road. Proposed conversion and minor extension of existing dwelling house to allow the business of childminding for up to nine children. Construction of new vehicular access from the London Road – Recommend Refusal – Amendment – revised plan and as clarified by applicant’s e-mail dated 16 July 2010)

2 letters of objection were read and one of them, Mr J Fox as given permission to address the meeting.

The meeting Agreed to Recommend Refusal. The amendment did nothing to change the Council’s opinion that the application as a whole should be refused. Furthermore the amendment, placing a children’s play area being put next to a car parking area and an extremely busy main road was not in the health and safety interests of the young children involved.

The Committee was also concerned that the Environmental Officer (Simon Hill) having said in his response of 18th June, “I need a noise impact report….” and “Until this information is received, I have no option but to recommend refusal….” the report is seemingly no longer required, the applicant having refused to undertake one.

The Committee was also concerned that an elderly neighbour had requested that officers from the District Council visit his property and see for themselves the impact of this development but so far only a buildings officer had attended. It was Agreed to write to the District and ask that a Planning Officer and an officer from the Health and Housing team do contact this gentleman.

A letter of objection had been submitted by a neighbour, Mr M Tims, who was present and was allowed to address the meeting.

It was Agreed to Recommend Refusal on the following grounds:

  • Out of character with the surrounding houses
  • Over development of the site
  • Overlooking of the houses on Farm Close Lane
