  1. PLANNING APPLICATIONS

 

A list of planning applications received since the previous Committee meeting had been circulated

 

  • Application No: 19/04039/FUL, Location: 20 Moor Lane Darras Hall Newcastle Upon

Tyne Northumberland NE20 9AD, Proposal: Demolition of existing house and construction of a new dwelling.

Comment: The Planning Committee would like the neighbours’ concerns regarding construction vehicles to be taken into consideration should this application be approved.

 

1.2       Application No: 19/03672/FUL, Location: Land North of the Tilery Cottage, Kirkley, Northumberland. all

 

Proposal: Change of use of annexe/art studio to self-contained residential dwelling to include alterations and extensions, including lifting existing roof to provide bedroom accommodation at first floor level together with single storey extension to rear and detached double garage.

Objection: The Planning Committee believe this proposal would be contrary to the core planning principles within the National Planning Policy Framework Paragraph 145, sections (c) of Proposals affecting the Green Belt. Section (c) permits the extension or alteration of a building provided that it does not result in disproportionate additions over and above the size of the original building. The committee feel that the plans for this small lodge would create a much larger building in height and on a much larger footprint. This would be intrusive and unnecessary. Therefore, they wish to see the plans revised to a smaller-scale proposal on the existing footprint and height or they request that the application be refused.

 

The Committee made no comments about the other 4 applications considered.
