One further letter of objection had been received taking the total number of written objections received for this proposal from 8 to 9.  The objection submitted was on the grounds that the building being built was higher than originally approved.

 

A further site visit to check the height of the garage produced a measurement which corresponds with the measurement indicated on the drawings provided, which confirms it is 4.9m in height to the ridge.

 

The other issues raised within the objection had already been raised within other written representations.  As such, these issues were fully considered when forming the recommendation to approve the proposed detached garage.

 

Ms. L. Harrison, an objector to the application, took the opportunity to address the Committee in respect of this matter.

 

In accordance with paragraph 9.1(c) of the Code of Conduct and Procedures in respect of the Planning Service, Councillor Jackie James addressed the Committee in respect of this application.
