Minutes of a Meeting of the Planning Committee Held on Monday, 19Th September, 2011 at 7


Present : Cllrs. Mr. Truesdale (Chairman), Mrs. Aston, Mr. Armitt, Mr. Moore, Mr. Young

Rectory Homes – David Ullathorne, Dan Moore.

  1. 5 Townsend Green – David Ullathorne gave an update on the current situation regarding this planning application. Rectory Homes now own the land and it is hoped to commence work in October. Part of land will be passed to the Parish Council to maintain together with a commuted sum. It was agreed the area would be left as the original ridge and furrow meadowland. An agreement had been signed by the Parish Council relating to this land some time ago but this will now be superceded, and a new agreement between Rectory Homes and the Parish Council will need to be signed. The application is for 6 plots. The only change to the previous application is that the car ports have been made wider. There will be an opening in the wall, which is a condition of the planning permission, but it will not be wide enough for vehicles to pass through. There is a TPO on the tree.
  1. New Applications

(a)11/01454 – 102 Churchway – demolition of dwelling and erection of 2 detached houses with associated parking and landscaping.

No objection.

(b)11/01644 – Land to rear of 1 Fort End – new dwelling with detached garage and access.

No objection to design of proposed house. Access drive and garage are already used by 1 & 5 FortEnd and by Dundar Cottage, and will in future also be used by the new house. There would appear to be potential for conflict and overspilling onto FortEnd. It would seem sensible to address at this stage rather than when it becomes a problem. Can this be raised please?

(d)11/01713 – 39 Anxey Way – works to two Horse Chestnut, one Maple Crimson King and two Leaf Maple trees.

No objection.

(f)11/01809 – Church End Cottage, Aston Road – demolition of chimney.
