|Planning Committee Members:||
Bob Tyrrell (Chair), Brian Butcher (Vice Chair), Murray Harlow, Andrew Savage and Laura Walkingshaw (Parish Clerk)
Wed 21st Feb 2018, J L Hall at 7.30pm
|Members of the public present:||1|
|Declarations of Interest:||Cllr Tyrrell declared an interest in Item 2, Planning Application 180065|
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 receive any pre-application representations regarding proposed planning applications
A resident of Albany Road wished to consult the Planning Committee on the three options which he has submitted to Colchester’s Planning Department as a pre-application. The Committee found Option 1 the most preferable of the three options but thought that the first-floor windows should be centered a little more by say 250mm/500mm each side. Overall, they were happy with the pitch roof and have no objection to another floor. However, the committee did advise that none of the options show a street scene providing very little context to the planner, but the resident did report that photographs of neighbouring properties have been sent with the pre-application. The committee will await the Borough Council’s decision.
