7 Planning Applications
10/P/1737/NMA - Land adjoining 10 Old Station Close, Wrington
It was noted that no plans had been received as NSC considered this to be a ‘non-material amendment’. This had been queried but NSC maintained that the application had been submitted and accepted on this basis. It was agreed that the Council had no comment to make but would question whether this proposed Conservation Area windows development could legitimately be considered to be a non-material amendment.
10/P/1724/F - Timberdown, 3 Ladywell, Wrington
It was agreed that the Council had no comment on this application.
10/P/1770/F - Land to the north of Scars Farm, Lye Hole Lane, Redhill, Wrington
Councillors discussed the history of previous planning applications on the site and issues relating to access. It was noted that the present application included a new access from Lye Hole Lane, utilising part of an existing farm track. The application proposed the new track would be shielded from visual impact by landscaping. It was noted that there were discrepancies between the design & access statement and the plans, with it still stated that the site would be from Row of Ashes, and that the biodiversity statement related to another unitary authority. It was agreed that the Council had no objection to the development but would restate comments submitted on previous applications and with further comment that residents had concerns over the volume of traffic in Lye Hole Lane. It was agreed that the discrepancies in the paperwork should be highlighted.
10/P/1806/F - Meadow Cottage, Lye Hole Lane, Redhill, Wrington
The point was made that this was a retrospective application although this was not mentioned in the paperwork. It was agreed that the Council had no objection to the proposal but, as with the application for Scars Farm, would comment that local residents had concerns over the volume of traffic in Lye Hole Lane.
Action: Cllr Glynn to check and report back on the regulations concerning bed and breakfast accommodation.
