Additional documents:


The Committee considered reports of the Deputy Chief Executive relating to applications for planning permission.  During the meeting, Officers referred to additional information and representations which had been received.


Except where an alternative condition was contained in the report or an amendment made by the Committee, the condition as set out in the report and the appropriate time limit conditions were to be attached in accordance with the relevant provisions of Section 91 and 92 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.


The abbreviated conditions and reasons shown in the report were to be set out in full on the notices of decision.  It was noted that following consideration by the Committee, and without further reference to the Committee, the Deputy Chief Executive had delegated authority to add, delete or amend conditions and reasons for refusal.


In considering the report(s) of the Deputy Chief Executive regard had been paid to the policies of the relevant development plan, the National Planning Policy Framework and all other material planning considerations.  Where the Committee deferred consideration or refused planning permission the reasons for that decision are as shown in the report or as set out below. 


Where the Committee granted planning permission in accordance with the recommendation in a report this was because the proposal is in accordance with the development plan the National Planning Policy Framework or other material considerations as set out in the report unless otherwise specified below.  Where the Committee granted planning permission contrary to the recommendation in the report the reasons for doing so and the conditions to be attached are set out below.




That the applications be determined in accordance with the recommendation in the report of the Deputy Chief Executive, unless shown otherwise:-


(1)     19/02128/FUL - Demolition of 4 Bungalows and removal of existing trees to facilitate the construction of 59 apartment extra care building with associated hard and soft landscaping and parking as amended by plans received by Hambleton District Council on 5 December 2019 at Land to rear (Easby’s Field) of Queen Anne’s Drive, Bedale for Broadacres Housing Association


PERMISSION REFUSED as the Committee considered the development unacceptable due to the massing and design leading to over development of the site with resulting loss of trees subject to a Tree Preservation Order harming amenity, ecology and landscape character. The Committee considered the car parking provision to be inadequate and the off-site traffic implications unacceptable along with the loss of four affordable bungalows.


The decision was contrary to the recommendation of the Deputy Chief Executive.


(On behalf of the applicant, Fiona Coleman, spoke in support of the application.)


(John Howe spoke on behalf of Bedale Town Council objecting to the application.)


(Simon Mason spoke objecting to the application.)
