To consider application UTT/21/1550/HHF.
The Planning Officer presented an application for the demolition of an existing detached garage, and for the construction of a double storey side extension with a single storey extension projecting to the rear.
The application was recommended for approval with conditions.
In response to Members’ questions, Officers clarified the following:
· The Case Officer confirmed that they had attended the site and had no overlooking concerns.
· The swimming pool would be heated through ground source heat pumps.
· At its closest point, the extension was approximately 0.5 metres from the site boundary and tapered out to 0.75 metres. Best practice guidance recommended that a metre gap should be left.
· The application was called in by Councillor Driscoll due to overdevelopment.
Councillor Fairhurst proposed that the application be approved. This was seconded by Councillor Emanuel.
RESOLVED to approve the application.
N Turner (agent) spoke in favour of the application.
The meeting ended at 2.30 pm.
