291 REQUESTS TO SPEAK – STANDING ORDER 38(b) – It was reported that two requests to speak had been received in accordance with Standing Order 38(b). The chair briefly outlined the procedure, indicating that the individuals would be given the opportunity to speak prior to consideration of the relevant applications.
292 MINUTES – Resolved – That the minutes of the proceedings of this sub-committee of 3 November 2000, having been printed and circulated amongst the members, be taken as read and correctly recorded and be signed by the chair, subject to the correction of minute 281 by the deletion of (iii) and consequent renumbering.
293 (207)APPLICATION DEFERRED FROM PREVIOUS MEETING FOR SITE VISIT – 00/0842 by Mr Wright for erection of a first floor domestic extension at 2 Prospect Place, Beaulahland, South Ferriby – (minute 284 refers) – In accordance with the decision at the last meeting, members had visited the site earlier in the day. The Director of Environment and Public Protection submitted a report and updated it orally.
Prior to consideration of the application the applicant addressed the sub-committee in accordance with the provisions of Standing Order 38(b).
The applicant stated that the amendments to the design of the extension as suggested by the Director of Environment and Public Protection and referred to in the report were not practical. It would be impossible to put a pitched roof on the extension as the wall between the applicant’s property and the adjoining property was only two bricks thick. Costs would also be increased significantly.
The Director of Environment and Public Protection reported that there would be no objection in principle to an extension but that its design should reflect its surroundings. It was felt that the cumulative effect of the proposed extension and the existing flat roof on the front of the house would present an overbearing box shape that would not respect the original house nor enhance its appearance.
A nearby property had a pitched roof over part of a similar extension only. The applicant had offered this as a compromise but officers felt unable to agree to it.
Members agreed that this latter solution would be acceptable. However, this would require the submission of an amended plan.
Resolved – (a) That the application be deferred to enable officers to hold further discussions with the applicant, and (b) that subject to an acceptable amended design being agreed along the lines proposed by the applicant, authority be given for the application to be determined under the scheme of delegation.
294 (208) PLANNING APPLICATIONS – The Director of Environment and Public Protection submitted a report incorporating a schedule containing details of applications for determination by the sub-committee, including summaries of policy context, representations arising from consultation and publicity and assessment of the applications.
