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.

(1)    22/02606/OUT - Outline application for all matters reserved for demolition of existing barn and erection of 1 No. dwelling at 8 Catton Village, Catton for Mr A Dodgson


Permission Refused.  The Committee found that, having taken into account the existing planning permission for an extension to no. 8, the proposed development would result in over-development of the site and would not meet the requirements of Policy E1 on design as the resulting dwelling would be out of character within the area.


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


(The applicant’s agent, Gary Swarbrick, spoke in support of the application).


(Andy Wiggins spoke objecting to the application.)


Note: Councillor P A James arrived at the meeting at 10.16am.
