It is the aim of the Parish Council to seek a high standard of design for all new developments and extensions in the Village .
Item 1: To elect a Chair and a Vice Chair to the West Bergholt Planning Committee
Cllr Harlow proposed Cllr Tyrrell for Chair, seconded by Cllr Stevenson, all in favour. Bob Tyrrell remains Chair of Planning Committee.
Cllr Stevenson proposed Cllr Butcher for Vice Chair, seconded by Cllr Savage, all in favour. Brian Butcher remains Vice chair of the Planning Committee.
Item 2: To receive any pre-application representations regarding proposed planning applications
The owners of 49 Mumford Road presented their options for a single storey extension to their property on either the front or side. The Committee concluded that they would be likely to support a front extension, but would have more concerns about a side extension.
Item 3: Current planning applications
|Location||Proposal||Application No. and link to CBC planning website||Object / Support / Observations||Decision or Recommendation||Comments by Planning Committee|
|17 Lexden Road
|Existing rear detached Garage roof space conversion into storage/office.||161229||Observation||Decision||The Parish Council have no objection to the conversion, except to bring to the attention of the Borough Council the dormer windows which overlook a neighbouring garden. The Council would recommend obscure glass in those windows to maintain the neighbour’s privacy.|
|Proposed ground floor and first floor rear extensions.||161322||Object||Decision||The Parish Council have no objection to the property being extended, but cannot comment as the plans give no context to the neighbouring property. There is a lack of information in the plans which make it difficult to judge the impact on the neighbour to the right. Please refer to DG7 & DG8 of CBC approved Village Design Statement.|
|39 Lexden Road
|Single storey extension to existing dwelling.||161473||Support||Decision||The Parish Council has no comment.|
|50 Mumford Road
|Proposed single storey front extension with single storey rear extension.||161374||Support||Decision||The Parish Council has no comment.|
