PLANNING APPLICATIONS

To consider Planning Applications received (attached). An updated list will be issued on Friday 20 August 2021 (if applicable).

 

Minutes:

The Committee reviewed applications received up until Thursday 19 August, 2021.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to application reference CB/21/03417 but the Town Council would request consideration of a condition preventing the possible use of the flat roof of the rear extension (below the proposed Juliet balcony) for purposes other than routine maintenance, due to the potential loss of privacy for the neighbouring property.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to application reference CB/21/03291 (Chamberlains Barn Quarry, Heath Road) but the town council would request clarification on:

(i)           Whether the proposed corridors for pedestrians and cyclists would provide for segregation of the two, in accordance with the Government’s Gear Change Strategy and

(ii)          Exact arrangements for the junction of the link road with Shenley Hill Road and/or Vandyke Road as this was unclear from the plans supplied and without sight of the full plans for the entire length of the link road.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to application reference CB/21/03649 (8 Bedford Street) but the Town Council would request consideration of a condition restricting use of the proposed annexe as only ancillary to the main dwelling.

 

The Committee discussed application reference CB/21/03566/TD and received communications sent in by a resident and by the Leighton Buzzard Society in opposition to the application. Overall, it was felt that the proposed location was unsuitable given its proximity to residential areas, visual impact in front of and higher than the tree line and close proximity to the conservation area.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that objection be made to application reference CB/21/03566/TD on the following grounds:

 

-       Close proximity to the conservation area

-       Close proximity and possible noise disturbance to residents

-       Proposed siting deemed visually intrusive being in front of and higher than the tree line, without any camouflage

-       That the proposed siting was believed to be contradictory to policy HQ5 in the recently adopted Central Bedfordshire Local Plan.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to the following applications:
