Reason for Referral to the Committee / Council

Departure from the Local Development Plan 2014 – 2029

Member Call In

Councillor V J  Bell has called in the application for the following policy reasons: LDP policy H4 (replacement dwellings), D1(c),(d). BTC NDP policy HO2

 

A Members’ Update had been circulated prior to the meeting that detailed amendments to both consultations and proposed conditions. It was verbally advised that a further letter of objection had been submitted subsequent to the Members’ Update. However, it was noted that no new material issues had been raised. Following the Officer’s presentation, the Agent, Mr Russell Forde, addressed the Committee.

 

In response to a question raised around changes to the bungalow submission in front of the Committee the Lead Specialist Place advised that each application was considered on its own merits. Should the applicant change that approach they would have to resubmit to the committee for approval. He further advised that an application of this size did not trigger contributions towards infrastructure needs. The Committee noted that given the history of Inspector approvals in this area it was deemed a sustainable location and that going forwards piecemeal development should be resisted.

 

Councillor Boyce, noting the Officer’s recommendation, proposed that the application be approved. This was duly seconded.

 

The Chairman then put the proposal to the Committee and upon a vote being taken the application was approved in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation.
