Minutes:

54.1          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 attached to these Minutes were presented to the Committee and duly taken into consideration by Members prior to decisions being made on those applications.

19/00865/FUL – 6 The Square, Toddington

54.2          This application was for the construction of three outbuildings comprising a garden room, double garage and gazebo.

54.3          The Planning Officer advised that the application related to one of nine dwellings located within a Grade II listed converted stable block range.  The site and immediate surroundings were of particular historical significance and the impact of the proposals upon this environment was the main matter for consideration.  The first part of the proposal sought the erection of a garden room and garage which were recommended for refusal because they were considered to be harmful to the architectural and historical significance of The Square and St Andrew’s Church; the applicant had not provided any justification or public benefit to offset this harm.  The second part of the proposal sought the erection of a gazebo which was deemed to be acceptable and was recommended for permission.

54.4          The Chair indicated that there were no public speakers for this item.  The Officer recommendation was for a split decision to permit the gazebo and to refuse the garage and garden room and he sought a motion from the floor.  It was proposed and seconded that a split decision be issued in accordance with the Officer recommendation and, upon being put to the vote, it was

RESOLVED          That a SPLIT DECISION be issued for the application to PERMIT the gazebo and REFUSE the garage and garden room.

18/01251/FUL – Starveall Farm, Pamington Road, Pamington

54.5          This was a hybrid planning application – a full planning application for the proposed erection of a new poultry site for up to 360,000 birds with solar panels, biomass boilers and associated buildings and development and an outline planning application for one agricultural worker’s dwelling with all matters reserved except for access.

54.6          The Technical Planning Manager explained that Officers had been contacted the previous day by someone on behalf of the adjacent landowner who had directed them to consultation requirements in relation to the application which was subject to an Environmental Impact Assessment.  In short, the regulations stated that, in such cases where the Local Planning Authority was aware of someone who was likely to have an interest in an application, but was unlikely to become aware of it as a result of the normal consultation process, the Local Planning Authority should notify that person in writing and provide them with 30 days to make any comments.  The correspondence received made it clear that the person in question had not been made aware of the application in accordance with  ...  view the full minutes text for item 54a
