Description of Application: Proposed two storey side and rear extension, single storey rear extension with raised patio and steps, entrance door moved from side to front, and alterations to the front driveway to include front low level boundary wall.


The application was recommended for permission, subject to the conditions laid out in the report.


Ward Member comments from Cllr Simon Fawthrop were noted at the meeting.


Further comments were made at the meeting by Ward Member Cllr Keith Onslow. He observed that no comment had been made so far concerning the drop between the two properties. Cllr Onslow was in favour of either a Refusal or Deferral based on the adverse impact of the plans on neighbouring properties. 


Late representations had been received from local residents which had been disseminated.


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