Applications for planning permission, listed building consent and appeal information


The Committee considered the planning application report. No late letters’ list was received.


(i)           Planning application NW/21/00488/FUL – 129 London Road, Bozeat


The Committee considered an application for the demolitionof an existing single storey extension (former shop) and erection of a part two part single storey 2-bedroom dwelling including associated private amenity space, and low boundary wall and gate to the front of 129 London Road, Bozeat for Mr M Bartle.


The report detailed the proposal, description of the site, the planning history, relevant planning policies, outcome of consultations and an assessment of the proposal.


The Senior Development Management Officer presented the report giving full and comprehensive details.


It was recommended that planning permission be granted subject to the conditions set out in the report.


A request to address the meeting had been received from the agent and the committee was given the opportunity to ask questions for clarification.


The agent referenced the officer’s report. He informed that the dwelling met with national space standards and would not impact on 127A London Road. The agent referred to the initial objection by Local Highways Authority (LHA) in relation to parking which was now revoked following the submission of a parking beat survey, demonstrating that there was parking available on street in the vicinity of the site. The agent also referred to the comments of the Planning Inspector in relation to an appeal decision for a prior approval application, in that it would be unlikely that the parking demand associated with the proposal would be materially greater than that associated with the retail use of the site.


The Chair then invited the committee to determine the application.


Members supported the scheme and considered it would improve the site.


It was proposed by Councillor L Lawman and seconded by Councillor Harrington planning permission be granted.


            On being put to the vote, the motion for approval was unanimously carried.


RESOLVED that planning permission be granted subject to the following conditions:

2.         The development shall also be carried out in accordance with the following plans unless otherwise required by conditions attached to this permission.
