12/52 SCHEDULE OF REMAINING PLANNING APPLICATIONS TO BE CONSIDERED BY COMMITTEE


The Head of Development submitted plans deposited as applications to develop land under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and the Head of Development Control reported thereon.

 

SUSPENSION OF COUNCIL PROCEDURE RULE NO. 10 - ORDER OF BUSINESS

 

ORDERED that, in accordance with Council Procedure Rule No. 10, the Committee agreed to vary the order of business.

 

ORDERED that the following applications be determined as shown:

 

M/FP/0270/13/P - Variation of condition 2 on M/FP/0220/11/P to revise the distribution of individual house types around the site and slight adjustments to approved plot positions at Rose Cottage Farm, Strait Lane, Stainton, Middlesbrough for Taylor Wimpey (North Yorkshire) Ltd.

 

Full details of the planning application, plan status and planning history were outlined in the report. The requisite consultations with the surrounding landowners/occupiers had taken place and one letter of objection to the application was received from the occupier of 6 Greenacres, the details of which were advised to the Committee.

 

The Head of Development reminded Members that the full application for the development had been approved by Committee on 23 October 2012. The objections detailed at paragraph 9 of the report related to issues that had already been considered by the Committee when the application was originally approved and therefore the letter of objection from the occupier of 6 Greenacres was a non material consideration. No objections to the application had been received from the Statutory Authorities.

 

A Supplementary Committee Note which provided details of the proposed window styles for the different house types was circulated at the meeting and the Head of Development advised that the condition in relation to the window type would need to be revised to accommodate the change of style. The developer had requested permission for some slight adjustments to the positioning of some of the dwellings within the approved plots, however the revised proposal retained and in some cases exceeded the minimum separation distance of 21m required between dwellings front and rear elevations.

 

The Head of Development reminded Members that a decision had been made at a previous meeting of the Committee, to refer back to Members for approval, any applications that had been approved by Committee where the developer had requested a variation to the scheme.

 

The report contained a detailed analysis of the application and analysed relevant Policies from the National Planning Policy Framework and the Local Development Framework.

 

ORDERED that the application be Approved subject to the conditions included in the report, for the reasons set out in the report 

 

M/FP/1262/12/P - Erection of 1 no detached 2 storey dwellinghouse with associated car parking at rear of 56 - 58 Ashford Avenue, Middlesbrough for Mr L White 

 

Full details of the planning application, plan status and planning history were outlined in the report. The report contained a detailed analysis of the application and analysed relevant Policies from the National Planning Policy Framework and the Local Development Framework.

 

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and 7 letters of objection to the application had been received, the details of which were advised to the Committee. No objections to the application had been received from the Statutory Authorities.

 

ORDERED that the application be Approved subject to the conditions included in the report, for the reasons set out in the report.

 

Councillors Brunton, Clark and Sanderson declared a pecuniary interest in the following applications and left the room whilst the applications were discussed.

 

M/CAC/0186/13/P - Demolition of existing building and retention of existing drill tower at Cleveland Fire Brigade, Fire Station, 115 Park Road South, Middlesbrough for Mr I Tallintire

 

M/FP/0177/13/P - Erection of two storey community fire station and mini fire station including the retention of existing drill tower. (Demolition of existing station) at Cleveland Fire Brigade, Fire Station, 115 Park Road South, Middlesbrough for Mr I Tallintire

 

The Head of Development advised Members that the above applications had been identified as requiring a site visit by Members of the Planning and Development Committee. Accordingly a site visit had been held prior to the meeting.

Members were advised that both applications should be considered in conjunction with each other. Full details of the planning applications, plan status and relevant planning history were outlined in the report. The report contained a detailed analysis of the application and analysed relevant Policies from the National Planning Policy Framework and the Local Development Framework.

 

The applicant had conducted a comprehensive community consultation exercise following which, no objections to either of the applications had been received. Cllr Michna, the Ward Councillor had requested that the developer consider retaining the facade. No objections to the application had been received from the Statutory Authorities however the Environment Agency had requested that, should the application be approved, a condition requiring finished floor levels to be no lower than those existing be placed on the approval notice in relation to the development.

 

The Head of Development advised that the access point for the fire appliances would be from Park Road South. Members were advised that the application would be brought back to Committee for Members to approve the samples of finishing materials in respect of the development.  
 

The Director of Cleveland Fire Brigade was present at the meeting and elected to address the Committee in support of the application.
 

ORDERED that both applications M/CAC/0186/13/P and M/FP/0177/13/P be Approved subject to the conditions included in the report for the reasons set out in the report.

12/53 APPLICATIONS APPROVED BY THE HEAD OF PLANNING AND REGENERATION


The Head of Development submitted details of planning applications which had been approved to date in accordance with the delegated authority granted to him at Minute 187 (29 September 1992).

 

12/54 ANY OTHER BUSINESS

M/AMD/0013/13/P - Dormer window to rear and bay window to front at 26 Grange Crescent, Marton, Middlesbrough for Mr J Taylor

 

The Head of Development advised Members that at the meeting of Planning & Development Committee held on 5 April 2013, the revised application to remove the dormer window from the scheme and replace it with two velux windows in respect of the above development had been approved via delegated decision as the revision to the scheme was classed as a Non Material Amendment.

 

A complaint from an aggrieved neighbour with regard to the consultation process in respect of the above application had been received by the department and it was likely to result in a complaint being submitted the Ombudsman. Members were advised that the developer had also subsequently submitted an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate in respect of his original application for a dormer window and that a further report on the Council’s delegation scheme and any future required changes would be brought to Committee in due course.

 

NOTED

 

LETTER IN LOCAL PRESS

 

The Head of Development advised Members that a letter had been submitted to the Evening Gazette by a resident which was very complementary about the merits of the Council's planning service.
