HPK/2018/0428 Land rear of 20 Sunlaws Street, Glossop, Derbyshire pdf icon PDF 212 KB

Minutes:

Detached 4 bedroom stone existing stone house  with natural slate roof with associated external works and landscaping, using existing vehicular access from Sunlaws Street

 

Applicant:        Mrs E Garrett

 

The Committee had undertaken a site visit.

 

The Committee were addressed by Mr Collins in objection to the application and by Mr and Mrs Garrett (applicant)

 

The Operations Manager -  Development Services reported a further objection received after the publication of the update sheet which, in summary, raises concerns  that the Tree Report has not been updated following the receipt of revised drawings. The objection also states that there are inaccuracies in the Tree Survey Report and certain details are not provided on the site plan – such as levels, retaining walls, landscaping and surface finishes.  This neighbour is concerned that tree T 3 would have to be removed, tree T4 would become structurally unstable and T1 would be severely damaged due to removal of part of its root system.

 

The Committee were advised that the amended plans show the footprint of the amended scheme does not encroach any further  on the trees on the site boundaries and  conditions have been recommended requiring submission of an Arboricultural Method Statement and   tree protection measures to be in place during the construction phase of the development.  Levels are indicated on the elevations and site section drawing.

 

 

RESOLVED:

 

1.    That the application be approved as set out in the report;

 

2.    That in the event of any changes being needed to the wording of the Committee’s decision (such as to delete, vary or add conditions / informatives / planning obligations or reasons for approval / refusal) prior to the decision being issued, the Operations Manager – Development Services be delegated authority to do so in consultation with the Chair of the Committee, provided that the changes do not exceed the substantive nature of the committee’s decision.
