Details of Planning Applications – Comments
Ref: 23/02097/FUL – Single-storey front extension at Wetherby Whaler, Ings Lane, YO26 6RA.
The Parish Council decision was B
Ref: 23/02114/FUL – Two-storey side and rear extensions and dormers to front and side at 9 Hillcrest Avenue, YO26 6LD
The Parish Council decision was D for the following planning reasons:
This house has already been expanded from the single-storey bungalow originally on the site.
The proposed extension is in excess of the permitted limits of house expansion in the Local Plan Policies on extensions D 11 as it will alter the scale and proportion of the property. This house is situated within the Conservation Area of Nether Poppleton although it is the 1980’s development it still is protected by the limitations of conservations areas are per the local Plan D4.
The developments in this cul-de-sac were designed to provided for different stages of housing need, e.g. first-time buyers and retired downsizing. All the houses in this cul-de-sac were designed with this in mind. The extension to a very large family house is not compatible with the street scene.
There is a loss of garage facility as it is being nominated as a bike store so cars will have to park within the curtilage of the property to avoid inconvenience to neighbouring properties.
There are heritage asset buildings that border this property that will be affected by the increase in size and all neighbouring properties should be advised of the potential impact on their house for value, privacy and being overlooked.
Under Local Plan D11 bullet point 3 any extension should contribute to the setting, townscape, landscape, and views. It is felt that this proposed extension will have a negative effect on the surrounding properties.
There are significant trees in the immediate vicinity of the proposed extension which as they are in the Conservation Area are protected by TPOs
(b) To note Local Authority Planning Decisions
It was noted that the Local Planning Authority had approved the following applications –
• Ref: 23/01968/FUL – Single storey side extension between the existing house and existing detached garage at 62 Allerton Drive, YO26 6NP.
• Ref: 23/01985/FUL – Single-storey rear extension at 7 Midway Avenue, YO26 6NT.
23/326 – TO NOTE CORRESPONDENCE
It was agreed that given the new information on the development proposals on 25 Church Lane that were not available at the last Nether Poppleton Parish Council meeting, a letter should be sent to the Planning Department to request that there is compliance with the Local Plan, Neighbourhood Plan and other strategic planning documents concerning the size of the new build that has been forced by the demolition by the builders.
