The Committee received and reviewed a report about this application, set out in agenda pages 175 to 216.


The Committee were advised that updates contained within the supplementary planning agenda included:


·           Amendment to the red line boundary between application numbers 210705 and 201345 via an amended site plan, resulting in the loss of one accessible car parking space. The loss of this space was deemed acceptable by Highways officers and met car parking standards;

·           Correction to the eaves height stated within paragraph 11;

·           Amended condition 2 to include revised application plans and drawings;

·           Removal of condition 10;

·           Amended condition 13;

·           Amended condition 16;

·           Additional informative relating to additional consent.


Carl Doran queried whether the back to back distance was policy compliant in relation to concerns around overshadowing. Baldeep Pulahi, case officer, stated that given the distance of the proposals and the fact that they would be set back from the boundary edge officers were content that the residential amenity would be maintained.


Carl Doran commented that he hoped that the applicant would follow through with the proposed double the minimum provision of electric vehicle charging spaces.


RESOLVED That application number 210705 be approved, subject to conditions and informatives as set out in agenda pages 176 to 183, amended condition 2, 13, and 16 as set out in the supplementary planning agenda, removal of condition 10 and additional informative as set out in the supplementary planning agenda.
