PLANNING APPLICATIONS

To consider Planning Applications received (attached). An updated list will be issued on Friday 19 July 2019 (if applicable).

Minutes:

The Committee reviewed applications received up until 19 July 2019.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that objection be made to application reference CB/19/01773 (39 Centauri Close) on the following grounds:

-           That enclosure of amenity land would be contrary to the original design layout for the site and detrimental to the visual amenity of the locality

-           Committee endorsed the comments made by the Tree Officer in resepcts of the likely impact the proposal would have on the trees, the subject of Tree Preservation Orders.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to application reference CB/19/01877 (8 Chelsea Green, Linslade), subject to parking standards being met and a condition being added to planning consent such that the annexe only be used as ancillary to the main dwelling house.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to application reference CB/19/01641 (88-90 Clarence Road), subject to a satisfactory noise impact assessment.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that objection be made to application reference CB/19/01567 (land at Old Linslade Road) on the following grounds:

-           That the land was Green Belt and in its opinion the application had failed to demonstrate the existence of very special circumstances sufficient to override established plan policy.

-           Concerns regarding visibility of vehicular access and highways safety, given the location on a difficult stretch of road with already limited visibility over the canal and river bridges, on a road used increasingly as a “cut through” by drivers.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that objection be made to application reference CB/19/01737 (52 Orion Way) on the following grounds:

-           That the proposed intensity of use (up to 4 clients up to 4 times/day including weekends and Bank Holidays) represented an overly commercial venture in a residential area and would be likely to cause issues with car parking and noise disturbance in an already congested residential area.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that objection be made to application reference CB/19/02040 (40 St Andrews Street) on the following grounds:

-           That the creation of an additional bedroom would then cause the property to fail to meet car parking standards in an already very congested area (as evidenced by the recently submitted resident petition discussed at the Central Bedfordshire Traffic Management meeting held on 16 July 2019)

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that objection be made to application reference CB/19/01765 (12 Leedon Furlong) on the following grounds:

-           Overdevelopment of the site

-           Lack of car parking
