APPLICATIONS

 

 

 

a

MC2009/0242: 3 Dashmonden Close, Wainscott: Construction of a first floor rear extension

 

No objection, subject to no objections from the neighbours.

 

 

 

b

MC2008/2014: 243 Brompton Farm Road: Construction of two storey side extension, formation of gable ends and insertion of front and rear dormers to facilitate loft conversion and excavation of front garden to facilitate hardstanding and wall with railings and gate to front – revised drawings

 

The hard copy plans had not been received. Some documents, eg a site plan, were not on the planning authority’s website. The drawings that were available were too small to read properly when printed onto A4. It was agreed the Clerk should ask for the hard copy and inform the case officer that the plans would be considered at the full Council meeting on 26 March.

DECISIONS

The decision as listed on the agenda was received. An additional decision had been notified following the printing of the agenda:

 

MC2009/0036: 47 Wainscott Road: Change of use from Class A1 (hairdressing salon) to hot food takeaway (Class A5) and construction of a single storey rear extension to form a store.

 

Refusal - The proposed development, if permitted, would result in an intensification of vehicular comings and goings on this busy through route, where a high demand for kerbside parking already exists. Consequently, in the absence of adequate accessible off street parking, the proposed development will give rise to indiscriminate parking that fails to improve local amenity and would result in a development which is detrimental to highways and pedestrian safety. Such inconsiderate parking would lead to an unacceptable reduction in road safety at this locality and interfere with the free flow of traffic along this part of Wainscott Road. The development would therefore be contrary to the provisions of Policies R10 and T1 of the adopted Medway Local Plan 2003.

APPEALS & OTHER MATTERS

 

 

 

a

MC2008/1890 Appeal ref APP/A2280/A/09/2097993/WF: 52 Benenden Road, Wainscott: Construction of a two storey side extension together with relocation of entrance door from side to front elevation and new garden wall and gate

Following refusal an appeal has been made, which will be heard by written representations. And a site visit by the inspector. It was agreed no additional comments would be made.

 

 

 

b

MC2007/1904: Sandacres, Upnor Road, Lower Upnor: Demolition of existing dwelling and construction of 35 dwellings with garages and associated parking

 

The Chairman reported that this application would be considered by the planning authority’s development control committee that evening and was being recommended by the officers for approval. The S106 monies included some for formal play space, informal open space and formal sports and it was believed an amount would be devolved to the Parish Council for some of these purposes.
