|146040||Proposed three bedroom house||A Yates. 47 Chapel Road, West Bergholt Colchester CO6 3HZ||Support||Decision||None|
|146122||Outline application for construction of a four bedroom detached house with a double garage.||M. Offord. Land adj to Poplar Cottage Spring Lane, West Bergholt Colchester Essex CO6 3HH||Support||Decision||The Parish Council has no objection to a dwelling being constructed on the site but reserves its judgement on the final layout of the development which should conform to the VDS as well as Borough Council requirements.|
|Erection of dwelling house with associated parking facilities||Mr Elliot. 9 Bradbrook Cottages, Armoury Road, West Bergholt Colchester CO6 3JW||Object||Decision||The Parish Council view remains unaltered, Due to the lack of an adequate streetscape drawing and poor overall design, which is contrary the Village Design Guide. We are of the view that the current proposal is inappropriate, as it does not acknowledge or respect the existing streetscape. As a result it could lead to poorly related built form, in contrast to the more spacious character of the established residential area. (VDS DG3, DG8 and DG10 apply)|
|146215||Construct a new external chimney in brick on the right elevation of the main bungalow||R Long. Netherfield, Nayland Road, West Bergholt Colchester CO6 3DG||Support||Decision||None|
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.
Other Matters: None.
