The papers from the last Meeting held 12 January 2011 were reviewed. It was noted the only item relating to the Parish had concerned the Appeal against the decision on application 09/P/2122/F, St Katherine’s Farm, which had been dismissed.

6 Decision Notices issued by NSC

A list of decision notices had been circulated prior to the Meeting and these were noted. It was reported that 10/P/1295/WT (works to trees at 6 Old Bell Court) had not been included on the circulated list and that this application has now been withdrawn.

7 Planning Applications

A list of planning applications had been circulated prior to the Meeting.

Application - 11/P/0012/F - 3 Kings Road, Wrington, BS40 5LW

It was agreed that the Council had no comment on this application.

Application - 10/P/2229/F - Dial House, Broad Street, Wrington, BS40 5LA

It was agreed that the Council had no objection in principle to the development but has concerns about the potential neighbour impacts, particularly as the proposed new roof line appears to partially obscure one of the immediate neighbour's windows.

Application - 11/P/0041/F - Saddleback Barn, Wrington Hill, Wrington, BS40 5PL

The Council wishes to object to this application for the following reason: The application is for a new building, which includes new residential accommodation within the Green Belt.
