  1. Report on Recent Planning Applications


  • 18/03347/FULLS – Land east of Muss Lane – erect five 4 bed dwellings with access, parking and landscaping – object. Members supported the comments received from neighbours that to build 5 houses was overdevelopment; the proximity to neighbours impacted on their privacy; access to the site along Muss Lane, which was not all two vehicles wide as stated in the application, was limited and dangerous for pedestrians with no footpath and existing residents’ vehicles parked on road because no off-road parking exists; impact of contractors’ vehicles on this confined space; if approved, roofs should be hipped in line with the village design statement and adjacent properties; fewer houses of varying designs would be more in keeping with this rural location; protection of existing green space and/or improvement vital. Withdrawn.


  • 19/00127/FULLS – 3 Austins Cross – demolish single storey rear utility room and construct single storey extension to provide kitchen, replacement fenestration and door; lift roof over first floor bathroom, replace slates and insert 2 roof lights (amended scheme) – support.  Permitted.
