Minutes:

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to application reference CB/20/02858/LDCP (16 Bossard Court), subject to Highways being satisfied that parking standards were being met.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to application reference CB/20/02740 (18 Melfort Drive), subject to Highways being satisfied that parking standards were being met.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to application reference CB/20/02907 (The Boat Shop, Mentmore Road) but the Town Council would request that a condition be added that occupation of the proposed dwelling be associated with the  use of the site as a maintenance yard and that permitted development rights be removed.

 

Discussion took place regarding application reference CB/20/02885 (7 Harcourt Close). The Committee felt that its earlier objections to the previous application remained valid.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that objection be made to application reference CB/20/02885 (7 Harcourt Close) on the following grounds:

 

-       It was considered that the proposal would represent an alien and incongruous form of development that by virtue of its size and siting would result in an unacceptable level of overlooking, loss of privacy and noise and disturbance to the detriment of the adjoining residential properties.

-       The proposal would by virtue of the rural character of this particular location have a detrimental impact upon the wildlife hereabouts through the loss of established habitat in what is considered a traditional and historic rural enclave within this residential area.

-       The visibility splay is considered insufficient in order to allow a vehicle to safely manoeuvre on and off the proposed driveway thereby potentially compromising highway safety.

-       Should the planning authority be minded to grant planning permission, it has the propensity to set a precedent for the use of other back gardens within the area for equally inappropriate development.
