Other Planning Issues

1) Following on from discussion about the Glebe tree works application, it was agreed that a list should be drawn up of all open ground in the village so that ownership can be established. The Chairman is to prepare an initial list.

2) Cllr. Bigg reported on her attendance at an NSC presentation/workshop concerning the new Local Development Scheme and, particularly, the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) consultation, with a written/email report to follow. The Chairman asked councillors to bear in mind the 27th January response date and to bring any comments to the January PC meeting.

3) Councillors were reminded about the ongoing Enforcement Policy consultation and the draft response recently circulated. The target for internal comments is also the PC meeting, 20th January, with the consultation closing at the end of the month.

4) BIA - RLP. As previously advised, a copy of the Inspector’s part-report on BIA issues had been received and was offered to councillors for reading. Circulation; Cllrs. Matthews, Phillips, Clements, then to the Clerk for filing.

5) Cambridge Cottage (New Image), 05/P/2695/F. The Chairman reported on issues raised by the applicant’s agent and advised that, in response to an approach from residents, counter arguments had been presented to the Planning Officer concerned. Also, Cllr. Yamanaka advised that she has asked that the application be referred to the Area Committee for decision should the Officer be considering approval. In that event, the application is likely to be discussed at the February Committee meeting. Any Wrington representation will be agreed at the next Planning meeting.

6) Bennetts. Cllr. Yamanaka commented on concerns raised by residents about the stone and capping used in construction of the new wall, 04/P/0261/F. Negative comments have also been received by other councillors. The Chairman will review the background and report to the next meeting.

9) Wrington Warren, 05/P/1475/F. This retrospective application for airport related parking was refused by NSC’s South Area Committee and, later, the P&R Committee.

Planning Applications
Application Address/Location Applicant Development Proposal Comments
05/P/3018/F Bramley Cottage, Bullhouse Lane Stewart Extension to kitchen on west elevation No comment on the application.

Note: Site inspection suggests that the development relates to infill on the south elevation (east side of the property). The drawings appear mistaken

05/P/3092/LEU Warren House, Brockley Combe Road Baker Caravan-use is ancillary to main residential use or began more than 10 years ago. The Council is unable to comment on 10-year use and has no knowledge of how this caravan is or has been used. The Council would like to be advised of the regulations relating to ancillary use of caravans alongside or within the curtilage of residential properties.


Land adjoining Innex Cottage, Ropers Lane


2-storey dwelling and detached garage.

As the access provision is unchanged from the previous application, 05/P/2130/F, the Council repeats its comment on highway issues, in that the site entrance is opposite a well-used hall, in a narrow lane with cars regularly parked opposite. Also, our understanding is that NSC Officers previously recommended that a passing place should be provided in the driveway within the site, between the road and the garage area. Please refer to 04/P/1696/F.
