Minutes:

53.1           The Technical Planning Manager submitted a Schedule comprising planning applications and proposals with recommendations thereon.  Copies of this had been circulated to Members as Appendix A to the Agenda for the meeting.  The objections to, support for, and observations upon the various applications as referred to in Appendix 1, and the further update in respect of Item 5 of the Schedule, attached to these Minutes were presented to the Committee and duly taken into consideration by Members prior to decisions being made on those applications.

18/00558/FUL – Part Parcel 8900, Dibden Lane, Alderton

53.2          This application was for change of use of land from agricultural to equestrian use for private non-commercial use only and associated erection of stable building, including integral tack room and hay store, provision of hardcore access track for vehicular access with horse lorry turning and parking area and retention of existing fencing (part retrospective).  The Committee had visited the application site on Monday 17 December 2018.

53.3          The Chair indicated that there were no public speakers for this item.  The Officer recommendation was to permit the application and he sought a motion from the floor.  It was proposed and seconded that the application be permitted in accordance with the Officer recommendation.  The seconder of the motion indicated that he had requested the Committee Site Visit based on the concerns raised by the Parish Council.  He was hopeful that conditions 3, 4 and 5 of the Officer recommendation would help to allay those fears and he indicated that he had no doubt that the Parish Council would be keeping a close eye on the development.  Upon being put to the vote it was

RESOLVED          That the application be PERMITTED in accordance with the Officer recommendation.

18/00786/FUL – Cross House, Church Street, Tewkesbury

53.4          This application was for a change of use at ground floor level from retail (Class A1) to a micro-pub for the sale of cask ales and craft beers and ciders for consumption on and off the premises (Class A4).

53.5          The Chair indicated that there were no public speakers for this item.  The Officer recommendation was to permit the application and he invited a motion from the floor.  It was proposed and seconded that the application be permitted in accordance with the Officer recommendation.  The proposer of the motion indicated that he had shared the Civic Society’s concerns about bin storage, which was quite a problem in Tewkesbury Town; however, this seemed to have been resolved and therefore he was happy to support the application.  Another Member commented that it was nice to see a development like this coming forward at a time when it was more common for public houses to be closing.  Upon being taken to the vote, it was

RESOLVED          That the application be PERMITTED in accordance with the Officer recommendation.

18/00956/LBC – Cross House, Church Street, Tewkesbury
