1.         Application V/2017/0645, Rippon Homes Skegby Ltd, variation of Condition 2 of Planning Application V/2015/0533 – substitute house type to plots 14-19, Manorcroft, land between Pleasley Road and Mansfield Road, Skegby, Sutton in Ashfield.


(Councillors Cheryl Butler and David Griffiths had previously declared a Non Disclosable Pecuniary/Other Interest in respect of this item.  In view of the nature of their interest they remained in the meeting and took part in the discussion and voting thereon).


In accordance with the Council’s Policy for dealing with late matters in relation to planning applications (Minute No. D4.17, 1993/94 refers), the Planning Officer proceeded to give a verbal report as to additional comments received in relation to the application as follows:-


The neighbour had sent two e-mails to all Members of the Committee and these included a letter to the Secretary of State and a letter from the developer.  The neighbour explained his concerns with plot 17 and why planning permission should be refused as already stated in the report.  The letter from the developer explained their current position to the neighbour.  The neighbour additionally points out that the previous owner always allowed them to maintain the boundary after asking permission and that Western Power have stated they cannot take away any soil for parking or alter the land because of the danger if cables are exposed.


Mr. R. Jordan, an objector to the application, took the opportunity to address the Committee in respect of this matter.


It was moved by Councillor Jason Zadrozny and seconded by Councillor Helen-Ann Smith that the recommendation contained within the report be rejected and that planning consent be refused for the reasons set out below:-


The proposed dwelling at plot 17 would have an unacceptable impact upon the living conditions of the neighbouring occupiers by way of it being overbearing and resulting in a loss of light to adjacent bedroom windows.  The proposal is therefore considered contrary to Saved Policies ST1 (a and b) and HG5 (a) of the Ashfield Local Plan Review (2002); and the core planning principles contained within the NPPF (2012) which seek to ensure a good standard of amenity for all existing and future occupants of land and buildings.


For the motion:

Councillors Lee Anderson, Chris Baron, Cheryl Butler, David Griffiths, Tom Hollis, Cathy Mason, Glenys Maxwell, Keir Morrison, Kevin Rostance, Helen-Ann Smith, Mike Smith, Sam Wilson and Jason Zadrozny.



Against the motion:






Accordingly, the motion was duly carried.


2.         Application V/2017/0329, Ainsworth HomeLife Supported Accommodation Ltd, two storey apartment block consisting of 14 apartments for supported living (Use Class C3b), land adjacent The Blue Bell, Carsic Lane, Sutton in Ashfield.


The Planning Officer advised the Committee that following the submission of a revised drawing to include 3 additional disabled parking spaces within the scheme Conditions Nos. 2 and 18 would need to be revised to reflect the amended drawing number.


It was moved and seconded that conditional consent be granted subject to the satisfactory completion  ...  view the full minutes text for item P.33
