Late Item

In accordance with the Council’s Policy for dealing with late matters in relation

to planning applications, (Minute No. D4.17, 1993/94 refers), officers proceeded to give a verbal report as to additional comments received in relation to the application as follows:-


Since publication of the Council’s committee report a resident had provided two further letters raising concerns about the maintenance in the future of his boundary fence. He suggested that a shared rear access path could be provided to serve plots 22 to 24 alongside the neighbouring property.  This was not considered to be necessary because plots 22 and 23 were semi-detached properties and had private access around the properties to the rear. Such a shared path could also lead to issues in designing out crime with the creation of alleyways through the development.


One further point brought to Members’ attention was an error in the wording of Condition 16 on page 37. This should restrict the hours of construction work on the site including deliveries in the interests of protecting the amenities of local residents.


It was moved and seconded that conditional consent be granted as per officer’s recommendation, subject to:


a)    the successful reconfiguration of the driveway/access to Plot 15 from the site service road rather than from a singular private access off Mill Lane;


b)    delegated authority be granted to the Assistant Director for Planning, in consultation with the Planning Committee Chairman, to consider and agree the final design of the site following the changes made to Plot 15, as required.
