PLANNING APPLICATIONS

Minutes:

The Committee considered planning applications received up until 5 August 2022.

 

The Committee discussed application reference CB/22/01491 and agreed that its objections previously made on 8 June 2022 remained valid. In addition, concerns were raised regarding the proposed net floor area and size of the communal areas.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that objection be made to application reference CB/22/01491 (land rear of 72 North Street and 2 Bedford Street) on the following grounds:

 

-       Overdevelopment of the site and concerns that minimum habitable space requirements may not be met

-       Lack of provision of affordable housing

-       Potential risk of surface water flooding

-       Potential issues with lack of foul water capacity

-       Concerns regarding proposed access and egress, particularly during the build process

-       Whilst noting the town centre location, concerns regarding adequacy of car parking due to the surrounding residents parking zone, as well as insufficient cycle parking

-       Inadequate net floor areas and communal areas.

 

Should Central Bedfordshire Council be minded to approve the application, the Town Council would be keen to see S106 funds agreed towards the provision of town centre community facilities as well as community health, policing and cycling requirements. The Town Council would also request a condition ensuring no adverse impact on neighbouring established uses.

 

RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that no objection be made to application reference CB/22/02663 (70A NORTH STREET) but to comment that there should be no overnight dog boarding and noise should be mitigated as far as possible.
