PERMISSION

Minutes:

Description of application – Erection of a single storey detached 2 bed dwelling following demolition of existing dwelling.

 

Oral representations in support of the application were received at the meeting.

 

The Development Management Area Team Leader (West) reported that:

 

-  Detailed calculations for the existing dwelling, permitted development extension and the proposed replacement dwelling had been undertaken by officers. Taking into account the permitted development scheme put forward by the applicant, it was concluded that there would be an increase in the footprint of the building. A reduction in the floorspace was not disputed, however it was calculated that the volume of the building would increase by 42m3, and the building would also be rotated to the front of the road in a wider form. A replacement building would have a harmful impact on the openness of the environment.

 

-  the fourth line of the recommendation should read: ‘..and conflicting with its essential characteristics..’;

 

In response to a question from a Member, the Development Management Area Team Leader (West) said that the table of calculations provided on page 22 of the agenda pack stated that the overall difference in cubic volume for this application was +11%.

 

Members having considered the report and representations, RESOLVED that PERMISSION BE GRANTED AGAINST OFFICERS’ RECOMMENDATIONS.

 

Accordingly, they resolved to approve this application as they considered amongst other things that the application was very little different to a scheme previously approved as permitted development at the same site (20/03703/PLUD) and thus the resulting development would not result any greater material harm to the openness of the Green Belt location.
