iii) P10/0758 (Minor) B1 & 3 Farm Close Lane Demolition of existing 2 dwellings and erection of 2×4 bed dwellings, 1×2 bed dwelling. New vehicular access. – Withdrawn 02.07.10
iv) P10/W0803 (Other) 44 Ladder Hill Single storey rear extension –Recommend Approval
v) P10/W760 (Minor) 132 Church Rd Erection of new dwelling adjacent to existing. The committee was not happy with the loss of mature trees on the first third of the site; the road frontage and south boundary of the house. Notwithstanding the comments of Oxfordshire Highways the committee feels that it is not safe to add an extra road access on to the narrowest part of Church Road at an extremely busy road junction. The zinc roof is out of character with the area as no other building has such a roof and is unacceptable opposite a listed building. Recommend Refusal
vi) P10/W0923 (Minor) 3 Littleworth Rd proposed new dwelling – Formerly land attached to 4 High St. ref P07/W0999 – approval won on appeal on 08.05.08.
No Strong Views
vii) P10/W0917 (Minor) Land adjacent to 51 London Rd. Change of use from sui generis (car sales) to previous approved use (MOT test station and workshop space). Removal of existing glazed panels and replacement with roller shutter type doors.- Recommend Approval
viii) P10/W0938/LB (Listed Building consent) (Other) College farm 117 High Street. Erection of studio room to rear of house. (Re-submission of P08/W0937/LB to include substitution of approved tiled roof with a glass roof)
ix) P10/W0878/RET (Retrospective) (Minor) Sun Inn Church Road Change of use of land from commercial garden (formerly part of the pub garden at the Sun Inn) to domestic garden – Recommend Approval
x) P10/W0908 Millwinds Windmill Lane (Other) Extension to dwelling to form new first floor bedroom and en-suite, increase size of existing dormer. New garden room and study to ground floor. Demolish garage and re-build as games room/store. Replace existing swimming pool and provide new garage. – Recommend Approval
xi) P10/W0977/LD (Lawful Development) 70 Farm Close Road Use of building as single dwelling house. There are congestion problems with the number of cars that park in this part of Farm Close Road and there are access problems for the rear entrances to houses on the High Street. Making the extension to no. 70 into a separate dwelling exacerbates this situation. It is a pity SODC did not take vigorous enforcement action when the application of 2004 was infringed. Allowing the annexe to no 70 to become a separate dwelling has led to problems with access and car parking, and much ill feeling among other residents
8.50 pm Cllr Coveley left the meeting
xii) P10/W1008 19 Templars Close Single storey extension – No Strong Views – The velux windows would be more in keeping on the rear roof not the front`
