3. Planning Application

(i) UPT/21353 – proposed development of a single dwelling on the land to the rear (east) of 3 Fieldside, and widened access to the site to serve both properties.

Applicant: Mr K O’Donoghue.

The plans having been circulated to members prior to the meeting were discussed. The Parish Council unanimously agreed to object to this application which sets a precedent not beneficial to the character of the village and is detrimental to surrounding properties. There is an issue of loss of light, overshadowing and loss of privacy of neighbouring properties. The Parish Council has concerns regarding the over dominance of the property on the plot, traffic generation, car parking provision and noise disturbance.

The clerk to respond to the Vale accordingly. Clerk

(ii) Permission for the continuation of the use of two storey office building without complying with condition 2 of planning permission UPT/3451/12-CM to allow extending the time period to 31 December 2012 at Prospect Farm, Chilton.

The Council had no comment on this application.
