2022   APPLICATION DEFERRED FROM PREVIOUS MEETING – In accordance with the decision at the previous meeting, members had undertaken site visit on the morning of the meeting.  The Group Manager – Development Management and Building Control submitted reports and updated them orally.

(i)  PA/2020/152 by A Mercer and A Kendall for planning permission to erect a rear, one-and-a-half-storey extension, detached garage and detached workshop/greenhouse, install two dormer windows in the front elevation, and boundary walls at 3 School Lane, Appleby, DN15 0AL

The agent spoke on behalf of the applicant and outlined the need for the development, and the boundary wall. He also referred to concerns raised at the last meeting with regard to the Appleby Neighbourhood Plan, and was concerned that if these plans were followed in black and white with no discretion at times then development would be eliminated in the area.  He also referred to the boundary hedge and believed it did not affect the conservation area.

Cllr Waltham also spoke on the application and in doing so raised the concerns of the Parish Council and highlighted the requirements in the neighbourhood plan. He was worried it was a conservation area and the affect it would have on the street scene.  He also raised concerns with regard to the existing hedgerow which was valuable to the village, and referred again to the neighbourhood plan.  Another concern was the privacy of the neighbouring properties due to the two dormer windows.

Cllr Poole asked the planning officer what weight was given to the neighbourhood plan, a he felt a lot of work and consultation had gone into the plan and it was being undermined.

The Group Manager – Development Management responded saying it was taking into consideration and given consideration when the officer makes the recommendation. It had also been referred to the Conservation Officer for comments on the hedgerow who did not feel it would have any affect.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations contained within the officers report.

Cllr Waltham spoke on the application in support of the officer’s application to refuse. He stated there was other areas of land allocated as development sites in Wrawby and were more appropriate.
