Other Planning Issues

1) Cllr. Bigg wished to refer back to the minutes of 27th June and wished to make the position clear. The minutes read- “ Cllr. Bigg drew attention to the pressure from NSC to expand the existing industrial space on the south side of the village, and argued that it would be illogical to introduce additional industrial development at Gatcombe Farm, especially as the Havyatt route was designated for industrial traffic”. Cllr. Bigg did draw attention to the existing industrial site on the south side of the village, but the point being made was that the revisions in the RLP Inspector’s Report were unjustified given that there was already an industrial site in Gatcombe Farm. Cllr. Bigg was not promoting any change to the current (B1 etc.) Gatcombe Farm status. Also the reference to Cllr. Clements comments “summed up the options as (1) car parking-no; (2) industrial- no, (3) housing, possibly with offices- yes.” may lead readers to assume this is the view of the whole council and as no vote was taken perhaps should be changed to “in Cllr. Clements view the options were ….”.

2) Cllr. Irving raised the issue of cladding applied to 25 Lawrence Road- the chairman to look at.

3) Brook House- the Clerk mentioned that the request to the Standards Committee was not taken forward by NSC as the Open Meeting to discuss was held before the Committee could meet. In view of a new application being submitted by the developers the Clerk has asked that the request for a dispensation be put before the next Standards Committee Meeting and Mr. Nicholson, Solicitor to NSC, has agreed to this.

4) Cllr. Thorn mentioned that the landlord of the Golden Lion has intimated that there would be an unveiling of a wooden carving of a lion on a plinth, intimating that this would be outside of the public house. As this is in the conservation area it has been suggested that he should ensure that the appropriate permission has been obtained.

5) Broad Street- comment received about the recently painted yellow lines. Firstly not in accordance with Conservation Area standards- this has been taken up with NSC. Secondly it has been suggested that the additional double yellow lines at the junction with Station Road have not been extended far enough. The original agreement with NSC was that they would extend for 7.5 metres. To be checked out.

6) RSS Consultation- Cllr. Glynn will circulate notes shortly and has invited others to comment on the content. Response has to be in towards the end of August.

7) Car parking in the High Street and Silver Street- the Clerk is to take forward with PC Tacchi as there are now instances of double parking and parking on narrow/blind spots.

There being no other business the meeting was declared closed at 19.15 hours.

Planning Applications
Application Address/Location Applicant Development Proposal Comments
06/P/1695/F West Hay, West Hay Rd Clarke 2-storey extension No comment
06/P/1763/F Tanda, Cooks Bridle Path, Downside Atkins Rear white upvc conservatory No comment
06/P/1768/F The Stable Block, Long Lane, Wrington Erection of a 2-storey extension to internal courtyard office accommodation and side dormer See comments under application 06/F/1773/F which are relevant to this application. The Council feels that Schemes A, B & C are one linked development and should be considered as such.
06/P/1773/F The Stable Block, Long Lane, Wrington Change of use & extension to South west wing at lower ground level to form 2 residential apartments to include conversion, single storey rear extension, side lobby and alterations to side windows OBJECT. The Parish Council is aware that a further application for this building has been lodged under reference 06/P/1878./F (i.e. in addition to 06/P/1768/F) and is of the opinion that all 3 should be treated as one. At the time of the meeting application 06/P/1878./F had not been received. The information currently provided is inadequate as regards business use and traffic movements. The property is in the green belt and outside the development boundary, with the proposal conflicting with RLP Policies RD/5 and H/8, Second Deposit Draft, and any new residential development would set a precedent as regards further conversion of the building in future.
06/P/1812/F 24 Garstons Close, Wrington Pasterfield Two storey rear extension No objection to the principle although it is considered that a gable roof is not in keeping and a hipped roof might fit better-to be in sympathy with the general design of the area
06/P/1825/F 16 South Meadows, Wrington Wilcox Erection of a single storey side kitchen and new garage extension No comment


West Barn, West Hay Road, Wrington
