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/0443/13/P - two storey extension to side, loft conversion with 3 no dormer windows to front (demolition of existing garage) and retrospective conservatory to rear at 22 Kirkstone Road, Berwick Hills, Middlesbrough

 

The Head of Development advised Members that the above application 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.

 

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

 

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and no objections to the application had been received. No objections to the application had been received from the Statutory Authorities.

The applicant was present and spoke in support of the application.

 

ORDERED that the application be Refused for the following reasons:

 

1. The approval of the development proposed would be contrary to the provisions of CS5 - Design, DC1 - General Development of the Middlesbrough Council Local Development Framework Core Strategy, and Middlesbrough Urban Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document.

 

2. The proposed development, by reason of its size, siting and design would form a visually obtrusive feature which would detract from the character and appearance of the area within which it is located, and appear to be overly dominant when viewed from the neighbouring property causing an unacceptable loss of residential amenity.

 

M/FP/0328/13/P- erection of two-storey apartment block comprising 8 no self contained apartments with community living spaces, associated access, parking and landscaping at Larchfield House, Stokesley Road, Hemlington, Middlesbrough

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and following the consultation period the Council received no written objections. No objections 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.

 

M/CAC/0533/13/P - variation of conditions 2, 4, 5 and 6 of M/CAC/1044/11/P to facilitate alternative phasing arrangements at Acklam Hall, Acklam, Middlesbrough

 

M/LBC/0534/13/P - variation of conditions 2, 4, 5, 7 and 8 of M/LBC/1045/11/P to facilitate alternative phasing arrangements at Acklam Hall, Acklam, Middlesbrough

4 Leaholm Crescent, Middlesbrough - M/FP/0815/12/P - Appeal dismissed.

 

A copy of the decision notice in respect of the appeal was attached to the report for Members' information.

13/14 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).

 

NOTED

13/15 ANY OTHER URGENT ITEMS WHICH MAY IN THE OPINION OF THE CHAIR, MAY BE CONSIDERED

Town and Country Planning Act 1990, Town and Country Planning (General Development Procedure) Order 1995.  Applications for prior approval of proposed building works to rear of dwelling houses

 

A report was presented to inform Members of the most recent changes to Town Planning legislation.  The changes were intended to create a more flexible system of planning control for a set period of time and thus increase the range and type of development which did not require planning permission.

 

A range of use class changes had now become permitted development and these were listed in the report.  The type of permitted works on existing dwelling houses would allow householders to build up to a six metre extension on a semi detached or terraced house and up to eight metres on a detached house.

 

ORDERED that the following recommendations be approved: 

 

1.    to inform householders that those proposed extensions which did not generate objections were Permitted Development.

 

2.    to consider along with the Chair/Vice Chair of the Committee, in the case of those proposed extensions which did generate objections, whether they should be approved, having regard to the Council's Supplementary Planning Document on Design and Development Control practice, and for Officers to inform the householder accordingly.
