24.1          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.

19/00424/FUL – 1 Brook Close, Winchcombe

24.2          This application was for the erection of a single storey annexe with patio area.

24.3          The Planning Officer advised that the application related to 1 Brook Close which was a detached bungalow located within a cul-de-sac towards the south western side of Winchcombe within the settlement boundary as defined on the Neighbourhood Development Plan.  The site was located within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Members were informed that the land levels within the application site rose from the front boundary to the rear boundary, resulting in the front elevation of the existing house being located at a higher level than the adjacent highway.  The application proposed the erection of a single storey flat roofed building within the rear garden area of the application site to comprise an annexe, to be constructed for an elderly relative of the owner of the property.  As detailed within the Committee report, revised plans had been submitted throughout the consideration of the application.  Both the originally submitted - and now superseded – plans and the revised plans were included within the Officer report.  The revised plans showed the omission of the originally proposed single storey rear extension and a canopy link between the existing house and the proposed annexe; reduction in the height of the proposed annexe building; and the use of stone on the north western elevation in place of the originally proposed larch cladding.  The application proposed to lower land levels in this part of the garden to accommodate the proposed annexe building, and the submitted plans showed that the finished floor levels of the existing dwelling and the proposed annexe would be the same.  The submitted plans showed the height of the proposed annexe building relative to the height of the existing house and fencing.  The Planning Officer explained that the application required a Committee determination due to an objection from Winchcombe Town Council on overdevelopment grounds.  For the reasons explained within the Officer report, it was considered that the design of the proposed annexe building would be sympathetic to the original dwelling in scale and form - and would appear ancillary to it - and it would not unreasonably detract from the open space within the rear garden area of 1 Brook Close.  It was therefore recommended that the application be permitted, subject to conditions which would include restricting occupation of the annexe to purposes ancillary to the main house, and preventing it from being occupied as an independent dwelling, and restricting the formation of any windows or  ...  view the full minutes text for item 24a
