41-43 Chapel Road

(Trading & delivery hours).
|192221||Support||Decision||The Parish Council has no comment.|
|89 Chapel Road
|New Dwelling with associated parking and Amenity following demolition of existing dwelling and outbuildings. REVISED DRAWINGS & STATEMENT||191984||Object||Decision||The Parish Council reiterates its previous comments, that the proposed dwelling is still too large for the site and a building 1 metre lower would be preferable to one which will swamp the neighbouring property and lane.
It would also like the Borough to note the inaccuracies on the street view drawings. Chapel Road slopes downwards in the direction of the Queen’s Head pond, but the effect of this has not been considered in the drawings. The building was previously refused because of its height however the revised dwelling is equally as big.
The Council would again reiterate its request for the survey heights of the proposed and adjacent roofs in order to make a more accurate judgement.
|Land adj. West Bergholt Cricket Club &, Stable Cottage, Colchester Road
|Full planning permission for site clearance and redevelopment to provide 41 new homes with a new access from Colchester Road and associated landscaping, open space, drainage, foul pumping station and parking; provision of 1.189 hectares of land reserved.||192271||Support||Decision||The Parish Council would reiterate the comments made on duplicate planning application 191997:
The Parish Council supports this application so long as CBC is assured that the development is fully in accordance with the Neighbourhood Plan.
|Extend existing outbuilding to form carport.
Also Listed Building application.
|192302||Support||Recommendation||The Parish Council would defer to the Borough Council’s greater knowledge of listed building conditions.|
