Minutes of a Meeting of the Planning Committee held on 21 December at 6.30 pm in the Great Shelford Sports Pavilion.
Present; Cllrs Hodge (Chairman), Coggins, Fane Harwood, Milson, Nettleton and Nightingale.
1 Apologies. Cllr Talbott.
2. The minutes of the meeting of 29 November were received, approved and signed.
3. Current new applications
S/3220/16/LB 3 Halatte Gardens Mr & Mrs Costa and A.Munoz New outbuilding in rear garden.
S/3242/16/FL 48 Cambridge Rd. Blue Property G.S. Ltd Demolition of bungalow and erection of pair of semi-detached dwellings.
As similar developments have been approved along Cambridge Rd we have no objections but would like permitted development rights removed to avoid overlooking issues in the future. Is there adequate room in front for cars to manoeuvre so they can exit in forward gear? No recommendation.
S/3022/16/PA Chandos Farm Cherry Hinton Rd Mr C Blay Change of use of building from agricultural to flexible use.
The range of uses seems very broad and we would prefer permission was given for a particular use.
S/3332/16/FL 38 Buristead Rd Mr Harry & Miss Moy. Single storey rear extension and two storey side extension.
In view of very similar extensions along Buristead Rd; no objections.
S/3350/16/FL 41 Tunwells Lane Mr J Lingard Erection of outbuilding in rear garden
No objections as long as use is incidental to the residential use of the main dwelling.
S/3351/16/FL 41 Tunwells Lane Mr J Lingard Demolition of existing rear dormer and erection of new metal clad rear dormer.
Recommend refusal. 41 Tunwells Lane forms part of a group of buildings which are identified as positive buildings in the Great Shelford Conservation area Appraisal and ones which could be candidates for article 4 directions. Hence there is a presumption that original features should be retained. The proposal to replace the original small dormer with a large flat roofed zinc clad dormer would be contrary to advice contained in SCDC’s Design Guide and would not preserve or enhance the character of the conservation area.
S/3352/16/FL 41 Tunwells Lane Mr J Lingard Demolition of rear extension, erection of new single storey rear extension and two storey side extension
Recommend refusal. 41 Tunwells Lane forms part of a group of buildings which are identified as positive buildings in the Great Shelford Conservation area Appraisal
The proposal to build a two storey side extension with a flat roof and a four metre single storey rear extension which will both cut out light and be overbearing to the adjoining property 39 Tunwells lane would be contrary to advice contained in SCDC’s Design Guide and would not preserve or enhance the character of the conservation area.
Applications for which paperwork has yet to be received from SCDC so official consultation has not commenced; consideration deferred
S/3132/16/FL 5 Spinney Drive Mr A Green Single storey front porch
S/2986/16/VC 1 Mingle Lane Mr T Aslam Variation of planning conditions.
S/3013/16/FL 7 High Green Change of use from office to beauty salon.
