Mr & Mrs Fincham

 

Single storey extension to front & rear elevations, extension of raised patio to rear

 

 

Minutes:

Single storey extension to front and rear elevations, extension of raised patio to rear.

 

The Planning Officer introduced the application and displayed a number of photographs of the site along with proposed elevations.

 

The principle of development was acceptable as the site was within the settlement policy boundary (SPB) and the proposal was an extension to an existing residential property.  With regard to the impact on the amenity of neighbouring properties, the extension would be modest in size and well distanced from the neighbouring property.  The Parish Council had raised concerns about the potential of overlooking from the raised patio, however, it would be no nearer than what already existed, and the boundary treatment was high.  The proposal would not increase the number of bedrooms so there would be no highways impact.

 

The committee voted on the recommendation for approval.

 

Following the vote, the recommendation was declared CARRIED, 12 Councillors voting FOR permission, no Councillors voting AGAINST permission and no Councillors ABSTAINING from voting.

Taylor Woodrow Developments Limited

 

276 DWELLINGS WITH ASSOCIATED WORKS INCLUDING GARAGES, PARKING, ACCESS AND DEMOLITION OF 44 & 46 RAMSHILL (AS AMPLIFIED BY TRANSPORT ASSESSMENT RECEIVED 05/02/2002, NOISE AND VIBRATION REPORTS RECEIVED 24/04/2002 & 2/5/02, PLANT LIST, ECOLOGICAL APPRAISAL, PLANTING PLAN RECEIVED 01/05/2002, LANDSCAPE MANAGEMENT PLAN RECEIVED 26/04/2002 AS AMENDED BY PLANS RECEIVED 30/04/2002, 16/05/2002 AND 19/12/2002)

Minutes:

276 dwellings with associated works including garages, parking, access and demolition of 44 & 46 Ramshill (as amplified by transport assessment received 05/02/2002, noise and vibration reports received 24/04/2002 & 02/05/2002, plant list, ecological appraisal, planting plan received 01/05/2002, landscape management plan received 26/04/2002 as amended by plans received 30/04/2002, 16/05/2002 and 19/12/2002)

 

The Planning Development Manager introduced the item and confirmed that Taylor Wimpey had finally served a notice on the wall owners and were pursuing this as a civil matter of a dangerous structure adjacent to their land.  A design solution had been put forward by the developer and one of the wall owners had been in discussion with Taylor Wimpey regarding engineering solutions for an alternative scheme.

 

The developer could carry out works to the footpath but not the walls, in order to comply with their Breach Of Condition notice.  However, if the footpath were opened, it would have to be shut off by Building Control and they would have to consider serving an Unsafe Structures Notice on the owners of the walls.

 

With regard to the future maintenance of the footpath, once works were complete, Petersfield Town Council would be happy to adopt and maintain the footpath, provided the wall matter had been resolved.

 

Whilst progress had been made, the Planning Development Manager said that there needed to be a way of pushing this forward and would require intervention outside of the planning arena.

 

Cllr Glass, as Portfolio Holder for Planning, agreed that intervention was required.  Two properties could not hold up in excess of 200 homes and the footpath would mean a safe route to school for children.  Cllr Glass and Cllr Butler, Portfolio Holder for Communities would hold discussions with Taylor Wimpey and the wall owners in order to try and have the matter resolved as soon as possible.

 

The committee NOTED the officer’s report and that Cllr Glass and Cllr Butler would speak to Taylor Wimpey and the wall owners in order to progress outstanding issues.
