None received.

Item 2:            Current planning applications:

Location Proposal Application No. and link to CBC planning website Object / Support / Observations Decision or Recommendation Comments by Planning Committee
Ridgeway, Chapel Lane, West Bergholt CO6 3EG Demolition of existing structurally unsound bungalow, construction of new bungalow with integral garage and new vehicular access. 182533 Support Decision The Parish Council has no comment.
37 Chapel Road, West Bergholt CO6 3JB Ground floor side and rear extension, first floor rear extension and internal alterations. Along with existing garage relocation. 182600 Support Decision The Parish Council has no comment.
13 Church Close, West Bergholt CO6 3JZ Proposed replacement porch and fencing. 182773 Support Decision The Parish Council has no comment.
77 Mumford Road, West Bergholt CO6 3BN Single storey ground floor front extension. Rear extension includes first floor extension over existing single storey element and single storey ground floor extension in place of existing conservatory to be removed. 182675 Support Decision The Parish Council has no comment.
179 Colchester Road, West Bergholt CO6 3JY Construction of 2 No. houses. 182761 Object Decision This proposal is outside the village envelope and therefore contrary to Colchester Borough Council’s policy on no development outside settlement boundaries.

The application does not form part of the West Bergholt Neighbourhood Plan proposals and the argument in the Planning Statement regarding the 5-year housing supply is specious.
