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.
