Planning Application - 18/01858/FUL - Nanital, Hawthorn Road

Report of the Service Lead, Planning, Infrastructure and Development  recommending that the Panel delegate approval 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 delegated authority be granted in respect of an application for a proposed development at the above address.


Erection of a replacement single storey extension and the conversion of an existing bungalow to create 2 x 2 bed chalet bungalows with associated car parking, bin and cycle storage.


Isolbel Armstrong (local resident objecting) was present and with the consent of the Chair, addressed the meeting.


The presenting officer reported that an additional objection had been received since the publication of the report.  In addition a number of small corrections to the report were highlighted to the Panel.  It was noted that there should be a change to paragraph 1.1 of the report detailing the number of properties within Hawthorn Road and change to paragraph 6.1 of the report that removed reference to landscaping as a key issue for planning consideration. In addition the Panel received the corrected version of the third appendix noting that an incorrect version had been attached to the meeting paper bundle.


The presenting officer also updated the Panel in regard to parking permits. Members were told that the property currently has permission for two permits and following the conversion into two properties it was noted that each property would be entitled to just one permit per property.


Upon being put to the vote the Panel confirmed the Habitats Regulation Assessment. The Panel then considered the recommendation to delegate authority to the Service Lead: Planning, Infrastructure and Development to grant planning permission. Upon being put to the vote the recommendation was carried unanimously.

b.  An amended parking layout to satisfy SCC Highways

  (iii)  That the Service Lead be given delegated powers to add, vary and /or delete relevant conditions as necessary.  In the event the SDMP is not resolved the Service Lead will be authorised to refuse permission on the ground of failure to satisfy the requirements of the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010 as required by LDF Policy CS22.  Further delegation be given to refuse the application in the event that amended plans are not received to satisfy the highway concerns raised in relation to parking.
