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.


The Decision


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


(1)     22/00032/FUL - Conversion of former agricultural buildings to one farm workers dwelling for Mr and Mrs David Hugill at Dromonby Grange Farm, Kirkby in Cleveland


Permission Granted


(2)     21/00730/FUL - Change of use and extension of existing agricultural building and land to mixed agricultural and commercial use for Mrs R Stephenson at Skate Beck Farm, Great Busby, TS9 5LB


Permission Granted subject to the conditions proposed by Environmental Health in relation to amenity and a condition for additional landscaping. The Committee was satisfied that, subject to the landscaping condition, the proposal would not have a harmful impact to character of the area. The Committee also found that there was an exceptional justification to grant the application having considered information regarding the lack of suitable alternative sites for this proposal due to the constraints on the applicant’s existing business and the necessity for close  proximity to its existing client base.


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


(The applicant’s agent, Jonathan Saddington, spoke in support of the application.)


(3)     21/02643/FUL - Construction of 6 no. poultry buildings, associated infrastructure, attenuation pond, new access track and hardstanding for Mr Henry Dent at Land north of Hag Lane, Raskelf
