A list of planning applications had been circulated prior to the Meeting.

Application 12/P/00258/F – Saddleback Barn, Wrington hill, Wrington

Erection of a detached garage.

It was agreed that the Council had no comment to make on this application.

Application 12/P/0275/TPO – 5 Old Station Close, Wrington

T1 – T4 Alder – Tree works - Reduce crown by 25%.

It was agreed that the Council had no comment to make on this application.

Application 12/P/0289/F – Land off Row of Ashes Lane, Redhill

Erection of an agricultural building for crop and implement storage together with welfare facilities.

The Council wished to make a comment on this application even though the proposed building does not lie within the Parish of Wrington, it lies adjacent to land of the Parish. The building being proposed for construction is in the Green Belt with no evidence provided to show that this land is associated with any farm or any other holding. There is no proper vehicular access shown on the plans and the building seems large for its intended use. In the event that permission is granted the Council would recommend that some landscaping work be carried out to shield the building due to the rural nature of the surrounding landscape.

Application 12/P/0316/TPO – Briar Bank, Redhill, Wrington

T10 horse chestnut – Tree works - remove lowest branch to North and install fence posts.

It was agreed that the Council had no comment to make on this application.

Application 12/P/0358/F – West Hay, West Hay Road, Wrington

Erection of conservatory to South elevation

It was agreed that the Council had no comment to make on this application.

Application 12/P/0074/F – The Spinney, Ladywell, Wrington

This application had been amended from one submitted previously. It was noted that the impact on the neighbours has been reduced which the Council welcome. The Council wished to reiterate the recommendation that landscaping/hedging (but limited in height to avoid shading the bungalows) is conditioned if approval is granted.
