Planning Application for Southfield Court approved

by Ruth, Marlene, and Steve on 10 August, 2017

The Planning Committee approved an application to vary the existing planning consent for the new block (which replaces the garages) at its meeting on the 9 August.  The variation sought was a change from eight 1-bed flats to seven 2-bed and one 1-bed flats.

Cllr Steve Penneck had de-delegated the application, requiring it to be considered at the Planning Committee (rather than delegated to officers) and spoke at the Committee at his concern at the impact on parking in neighbouring streets.  But the committee were told that they had to apply the same parking standards for one-bed as for two-bed flats, and the committee was concerned that a refusal would be overturned on appeal.
