Erection of a two storey, 2-bedroom detached family home.

Comment: Having considered all the details of this application, the Parish Council has decided that, subject to CCC Planning agreeing a maximum ground to ridge height with the applicant, and having such shown on the approved drawings, they will support the application.

Decision: Support

231375 109 Colchester Road, West Bergholt Essex, CO6 3JX

First Floor Timber Frame Rear Bedroom Extension & Internal Alterations

Comment: Having considered all the details of this application, the Parish Council has decided that although in principle it has no objection to a First Floor Extension, Planning Application 231375 does not comply with NP10 of the Neighbourhood Planning Policies and would also refer to DG25 of the Village Design Statement in that the design is not sympathetic with the original house in having a flat roof and being uPVC clad.

Recommendation to the Parish Council: Object
