1.  V/2019/0459, EON UK PLC, Application to Remove Condition 1 of Planning Permission V/2017/0022 to Allow Permanent Use of the Car Park, 21a Willow Drive, Annesley

 

(In accordance with the Council’s Constitution and the Members’ Code of Conduct, Councillor Arnie Hankin had previously declared a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest in respect of this application.  His interest was such that he left the meeting for the duration of the item and took no part in the discussion or voting thereon.)

 

On behalf of the Applicant, Mark Jackson took the opportunity to address the Committee in respect of this matter and Members were offered the opportunity to clarify any points raised during the submissions as required.

 

It was moved and seconded that permission to vary condition 1 of the previous consent and enter into a deed of variation to the S106 legal agreement, as outlined in the report, be approved as per officer’s recommendation.

 

2.  V/2020/0213, Mr. Crossman, Change of Use from Dwelling C3 to 6 bedroom (8 person) House of Multiple Occupation, 54 Titchfield Street, Hucknall

 

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

 

31 further letters of objection had been received from local residents in respect of the following:

 

·         Increased on-street parking

·         Proposal is an over intensification of the existing property

·         Impact on quality of life of existing local residents.

 

Officers’ response:

 

·         The further letters of objection received raise no new issues, and each of the matters had been addressed in the written report.

 

David Peck, on behalf of the Applicant and Councillor Dave Shaw, as Ward Member, took the opportunity to address the Committee in respect of this matter and Members were offered the opportunity to clarify any points raised during the submissions as required.

 

It was moved by Councillor Jason Zadrozny and seconded by Councillor

Daniel Williamson that the officers’ recommendation as contained within the report, be rejected and planning consent be refused.

 

Reasons for rejecting officers’ recommendation:

  1. The proposed intensification of the use of the building to form an 8 person house in multiple occupation is considered by the Council to result in the loss of a family home in a primary residential area. The use of all three floors for independently used habitable rooms results in the overlooking of neighbouring properties, this together with an increase in noise and disturbance due to the intensification of the use and increase in comings and goings from the property will have a significant impact on the amenities of neighbouring residents. It is thus considered to be contrary to policies ST1 and HG8 of the Ashfield Local Plan Review and Chapters 5 and 8 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2019.

 

  1. The proposal fails to provide adequate off-street parking provision in an area where on street parking is significantly restricted for residents, visitors and deliveries. The intensification of the  ...  view the full minutes text for item P.10
