16/23 SCHEDULE OF REMAINING PLANNING APPLICATIONS TO BE CONSIDERED BY COMMITTEE

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

 

SUSPENSION OF COUNCIL PROCEDURE RULE NO 5 - ORDER OF BUSINESS

 

ORDERED that, in accordance with Council Procedure Rule No 5, the committee agreed to vary the order of business.

 

ORDERED that the following applications be determined as shown:

16/5230/FUL Part conversion of garage to habitable room, dormer window at rear, rooflights at front and alterations to garage roof at 61 Grange Crescent, Middlesbrough for Ms B Henderson.

The Development Control Planning Manager 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 the 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 and the Local Development Framework.

 

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and four objections had been received. A Ward Councillor had submitted objections. There had been no objections received to the application from the statutory consultees.

At the meeting, the Development Control Planning Manager outlined the proposals relative to the site, the existing building and the neighbouring property and highlighted works which were shown on the submitted plans but which were Permitted Development. Detailed objection comments, from the occupier of 59 Grange Crescent, were circulated to all Members of the Committee.

 

The Applicant's representative was elected to address the committee in support of the application and responded to questions from Members. The Ward Councillor spoke in objection to the application.

In response to points raised, the Development Control Planning Manager reiterated that only the extension to the garage roof required consent from the Local Planning Authority as the remainder of works detailed on plans were Permitted Development for which the applicant did not require planning permission and therefore were elements which could not be considered in reaching a decision. The matter of a boiler and likely position of a flue was raised in relation to its position adjacent to or possibly overhanging the adjacent properties curtilage. The Development Control Planning Manager advised that the positioning of the boiler did not require planning permission in its own right and that there was no flue position shown on the plans being considered.


ORDERED that the application be Approved on Condition for the reasons set out in the report.

 

16/5127/FUL Garage extension with first floor extension over to front/side, porch to front and single storey extension to rear at The Red House, Church Lane, Nunthorpe for Mr and Mrs I Moullali.

Full details of the planning application, planning history and the 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 and the Local Development Framework. The Development Control Planning Manager explained the site context of the proposed development and referred to the positioning of a utility door within the side elevation of the proposed extension and the need for an additional condition requiring all glazing within that door to be obscure.

 

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and three objections had been received. Nunthorpe Community Council and a Ward Councillor had submitted objections. There had been no objections received to the application from the statutory consultees.

The drawing shall detail the overall height, design, location and supporting methods of the wall.
