Prior to the commencement of the development hereby approved, a scheme of measures to protect the occupiers of the development from external noise and vibration sources, shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The measures shall be implemented as approved before the development first comes into occupation and thereafter retained as approved.
Reason: To protect the occupiers of the development from excessive external noise.
Residential - Permitted Development Restriction
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2015 (as amended), or any Order amending, revoking or re-enacting that Order the A1 retail unit hereby approved shall not be used for any residential purpose without the benefit of further planning permission.

Councillor Coombs in the Chair
Report of the Service Lead, Planning, Infrastructure and Development recommending that conditional approval be granted in respect of an application for a proposed development at the above address.
The Panel considered the report of the Service Lead, Planning, Infrastructure and Development recommending that conditional planning permission be granted in respect of an application for a proposed development at the above address.
Erection of detached garage building with workshop at first floor level for use in association with the dwelling house known as 18 Grosvenor Road (part retrospective).
Nick Jones (local resident objecting) and Councillors Mitchell and Savage (ward councillors objecting) were present and with the consent of the Chair, addressed the meeting.
The presenting officer reported that since the publication of the report additional correspondence had been received. It was noted that this correspondence was from the applicant and did not raise any fresh issues to those set out in the report. The Panel noted a correction to the report in paragraph 4.7.1 that outlined the differences between the application that had been granted permission and the proposals set out in this application. The presenting officer set out an additional condition for the application, wording set out below, that would secure the mature trees on site.
6. Retention of trees (Performance Condition)
The two mature trees on the front boundary, 1x Purple Leaved Plum to the left of the driveway and 1x Robinia to the right of the driveway, shall be retained for the lifetime of the development hereby approved. For the duration of works on the site no trees on the site shall be pruned/cut, felled or uprooted otherwise than shall be agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority. Any tree removed or significantly damaged, other than agreed, either during construction or thereafter shall be replaced by the site owners within 2 months with two trees of a size, species, type, and at a location to be determined by the Local Planning Authority in writing prior to its planting. The replacement planting shall be maintained and retained thereafter.
To secure a satisfactory setting for the proposed development and to ensure the retention, or if necessary replacement, of trees which make an important contribution to the character of the area and further mitigate the development’s impact.
The Panel then considered the recommendation to grant conditional planning permission. Upon being put to the vote the recommendation was lost.
A further motion was then proposed by Councillor Coombs and seconded by Councillor Murphy that delegated authority be given to the Service Lead – Infrastructure Planning and Development to negotiate amended plans that would reduce the roof height to match that of the original planning permission and grant planning permission, or to refuse planning permission should the amended plans not be submitted within 1 month for being out of character due to the excessive height and instruct the Enforcement team to issue an Enforcement Notice.
RECORDED VOTE to delegate planning permission

AGAINST: Councillors L Harris and Wilkinson
