|Proposal||Applicant (Agent)/Location||Object / Support / Observations||Decision or recommendation||Comments|
|146473||Two storey side and single storey rear extension with detached garage.||Miss Linda Dobson,1 Hall Farm Cottages, Hall Road, West Bergholt Colchester CO6 3DU||Observations||Decision||The adjacent cottage has recently been granted planning permission to extend. The Parish Council would suggest that this application should be complementary in terms of its design and construction given that the cottages were originally constructed as a symmetrical pair.|
|146332||Change of Use and Alterations to Redundant Farm Outbuildings to form 2 No. Dwellings||Mr & Mrs M. Bashall, Kings Vineyard, Fossetts Lane, Fordham Colchester CO6 3NY||Observations||Decision||Given that this is a retrospective application, the Parish Council will defer to the Borough Council on this matter. It may be appropriate to add conditions which cover the development of the farm complex as an entity to prevent this site being over-developed should planning permission be granted.|
Note: where appropriate reference to the Village Design Statement (VDS) has been made in the above comments. The VDS has been adopted by the Parish Council and Colchester Borough Council.
Item Three. Other Matters: None.
