Details of Planning Applications
Ref: 23/00585/FUL – Single-storey front and rear extensions, roof extension to side with rooflights to front and side and dormer to rear at Ashlea, 2 Long Ridge Lane, YO26 6LX. .
The Parish Council decision was D
The planning reasons for this decision were:
The size proposed extension is over 30% of the original house on the plot.
The front extension will extend forward from the official building line significantly this will alter the street scene of a row of bungalows.
The additional height of the proposed extension could affect the amenity of the neighbouring property light and privacy.
2004 City of York Local Plan 4th set of changes H7 states
b) the design and scale are appropriate in relation to the main building

d) There is no adverse effect on the amenity which neighbouring residents could reasonably expect to enjoy
e) proposals respect the spaces between dwellings, and
g) the proposed extension does not result in an unacceptable reduction in private amenity space within the curtilage of the dwelling.
The wording of the New Local Plan has not yet passed the examination stage hence the use of the previous document.
Ref: 23/00658/FUL – Installation of solar panels to front and side elevations at 8A Sandyridge, YO26 6LU
The Parish Council decision was B
Ref: 23/00739/CLD – Certificate of lawful development for commencement of development (undertaking landform engineering works) in accordance with planning permission reference 20/00774/FULM | British Sugar Corporation Ltd, Plantation Drive, York.
The Parish Council considered this as B
Ref: 23/00756/FUL – Single-storey rear extension, rear dormer, dropped kerb and new vehicle access to front and detached self-contained annexe to rear at 14 Long Ridge Lane, YO26 6LX.
The Parish Council considered this C
With reference to the amenity space on the property this separate dwelling should not lead to subdivision of the plot as there is limited access to the site.
The vehicles pertaining to this site should be able to be parked within the curtilage of the site as this is a bus route and obstruction by parking in the road could create issues for the public transport.
