Minutes:

RESOLVED that the applications be determined in accordance with the recommendations contained in the Schedule, subject to the following conditions and amendments:

 

a)            Item 1: 3PL/2007/1079/F: Caston: Hawthorns, The Street: Proposed redevelopment to provide two bungalows with garaging for Co-Dunkall

 

Approved, as recommended, subject to a further condition requiring the erection of the fencing protection, for the mature tree on the rear of the boundary, before the commencement of any building works on site.

 

b)            Item 2: 3PL/2007/1100/F: Attleborough: Plot adjacent to Thresher Wine Merchants, High Street: Convert existing house into 2 flats and form 2 new flats in adjoining garden for Mr G Leigh

 

Approved, contrary to the recommendation.  Members considered that there was sufficient justification to support the application from the fact that the development would enhance that part of the High Street and would not be detrimental to amenity.

 

c)            Item 3: 3PL/2007/1140/D: Carbrooke: Area B, Former RAF Watton Technical Site, Norwich Road: Residential development of 117 2, 3 & 4 bedroom dwellings with associated parking, garages, roads and footpaths for J S Bloor (Sudbury) Ltd

 

Approved, as recommended, subject to the Officers checking that there was no requirement for a bund and subject to the inclusion of a further condition requiring the slab height levels to be agreed with the Environment Agency.

 

d)            Item 5: 3PL/2007/1173/F: Dereham: Units 5-9 Nelson Place: Alterations and extensions to units for Anguish’s Educational Foundation

 

Deferred, with delegated power for the Officers to approve as recommended, subject to the withdrawal of the infilling of the existing alleyway between units 9 and 10.  Members felt that the closure of the alleyway would endanger the public, as the rear of unit 10, where the shoppers would be encouraged to walk as an alternative, had no public footpath.  It was noted that the Highways Authority had not made any representations on this application. If the application is not amended, it should be referred back to the Committee.

 

e)            Item 6: 3PL/2007/1183/O: North Elmham: Site adjacent 6 Orchard Close: Proposed dwelling and new vehicular access to no. 6 Orchard Close for Mr T Hansell

 

Refused, contrary to the recommendation.  Members felt that the entire plot, being located on a severe gradient, was not suitable for another dwelling and would constitute as overdevelopment and would result in a form of development which was out of keeping with the character of the area.

 

f)              Item 7: 3PL/2007/1194/O: Scarning: Land adjacent to 25 Norman Close: Erection of two storey dwelling and garage for Breckland Council

 

Refused, contrary to the recommendation.  The Committee understood that it was the Council’s policy to dispose of these sites but felt that this piece of land should be retained as open space.  Members also took account of the fact that the Parish Council and local residents had objected to the application.

 

g)            Item 10: 3PL/2007/1371/CU: Dereham: 10 Dale Road: Change of use from amenity land to garden land for Mr T J and Mrs J A Dagless

 

Refused, contrary to the recommendation.  It was felt that the land in question should remain as amenity land as the change of use would adversely affect the appearance of the area.
