There were no objections to the application received from statutory consultees. 

 

An objector, on behalf of residents, elected to address the Committee in objection to the application. The Ward Councillor, two Ward Councillors from neighbouring Wards and a representative of Nunthorpe Parish Council also spoke in objection to the application. The applicant’s agent addressed the Committee in support of the application.

M/FP/1081/14/P - Erection of 1 No dwelling with attached double garage at rear of 188 Guisborough Road, Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough for Mr P Kiss

 

The Head of Planning advised 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 on the morning prior to the meeting.

 

Full details of the planning application, planning history 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 Housing Local Plan.

 

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and nine objections had been received, the details of which were contained in the report and in an addendum tabled at the meeting. There were no objections to the application received from statutory consultees. However, Highways noted some reservations regarding the increase in traffic using the access which were detailed in the report.

 

An objector elected to address the Committee in objection to the application. The Ward Councillor also spoke in objection to the application.

 

ORDERED that the application be Refused for following reason:

 

The proposed dwellinghouse is considered unsatisfactory because the additional accommodation proposed by the submitted scheme would create additional traffic as compared to the previously approved dwellinghouse.  The traffice would of necessity then utilise an access with reduced visibility at the junction with Stokesley Road and this would be to the detriment of road safety, all of this in conflict with Policy DC1 (test d - highway safety) in the Council's Local Development Framework.

 

INFORMATIVE

Planning permission was refused for the development because it was not in accordance with Section 38 (6) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 or the policies of the Middlesbrough Development Plan set out below or all material considerations, including Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) and the particular circumstances summarised below:-

 

DC1 - General Development

CS5 - Design

CS4 - Sustainability

CS9 - Housing supply

Nunthorpe Design Statement SPD

 

In reaching this decision the Planning and Development Committee were mindful of the particular circumstances of this application, namely that having carried out a Committee site visit, Members were fully conversant with the details of the development and in particular the characteristics of the existing access point to the private drive which affords access to the application site.  Having seen for themselves the visibility splay and nature of Stokesley Road, Members considered that the proposed scheme would create additional traffic in comparison to the previously approved two bedroom dwelling on the site.  The additional traffic likely to be generated by the proposed four bedroom dwelling and double garage, would compound the unsatisfactory nature of the existing access point and the reduced visibility on Stokesley Road, to the detriment of highway safety.  The application was, therefore, refused.

 

M/FP/1073/14/P - Single storey extension at rear (demolition of existing conservatory) at 16 Rosemoor Close, Marton-In-Cleveland, Middlesbrough for Mr G Horner

 

The Head of Planning advised 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 on the morning prior to the meeting.

 

Full details of the planning application, planning history and plan status were outlined in the report.
