1.         Application V/2018/0186, C. Berridge, detached garage, 2 Lodge Lane, Kirkby in Ashfield.


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:-


Further letters of objection had been received since the last Committee and the total number of written objections received for this proposal were now 12 from 7 objectors.


The most recent objections received raised no further material considerations than those raised previously.  The concerns were still that the building was of a disproportionate size, an inappropriate style, was built on land which was not within the applicant’s ownership and was far too close to the boundary of No. 11 Thoresby Avenue.  The garage was also claimed to be a monstrosity and was built far larger and higher than what was originally granted planning permission.


The Planning Officer reported that these issues are all discussed in the report and considered in the recommendations.


It is therefore proposed that Condition No. 1 is amended to take into account the revised drawing and an additional condition is attached to any favourable consent to ensure the landscaping is carried out and maintained.


Ms L. Harrison, an objector to the application and Mr. L. Stringfellow on behalf of the applicant, took the opportunity to address the Committee in respect of this matter.


It was moved and seconded that conditional consent be granted as follows:-




1.    This permission shall be read in accordance with the following plans:      Proposed Site Plan and Elevations, Drawing No.T904-PL32 Rev.A       Received 19/06/2018. The development shall thereafter be      undertaken in accordance with these plans unless otherwise agreed        in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

2.    The hereby permitted garage shall be kept available for the parking        of motor vehicles at all times.  The garage shall be used solely for the      benefit of the occupants of the dwelling of which it forms and          their visitors, and for no other purpose and permanently retained as       such thereafter.



3.    Trees and shrubs shall be planted in accordance with the landscaping scheme submitted to the Local Planning Authority on 19/06/2018.  All planting, seeding or turfing comprised in the approved details of landscaping shall be carried out in the first      planting and seeding seasons following the occupation of the    buildings or the completion of the development, whichever is the          sooner, and any trees or plants which, within a period of five years   from the completion of the development die, are removed, or            become seriously damaged or diseased, shall be replaced in the   next planting season with others of similar size and species, unless           the Local Planning authority gives written consent to any variation.




1.    To comply with the requirements of Section 91 of the Town and   Country Planning Act 1990 as amended.

2.    To safeguard the amenities of residents living in the vicinity of the            application  ...  view the full minutes text for item P.3
