(2)       Members in arrears of Council Tax by more than two months must not vote in decisions on, or which might affect, budget calculations, and must disclose at the meeting that this restriction applies to them.  A failure to comply with these requirements is a criminal offence under section 106 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992. 

 

(3)       Members are also welcome to disclose interests which are not disclosable pecuniary interests but which they consider should be made in the interest of clarity.

Minutes:

The Strategic Director, Place presented Document “K”.  Plans and photographs were displayed in respect of each application and representations summarised.

 

(a)     Wibsey Park Lodge, Beacon Road, Bradford               Wibsey

 

A full planning application seeking retrospective permission for the demolition of Wibsey Park Lodge, Beacon Road, Bradford and permission for the construction of 4 replacement dwellings with an associated extension to the existing garage and a re?siting of the access - 18/05120/FUL

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He explained that the Lodge had been demolished, however, prior notification should have been submitted by the applicant.  The restoration of the site was linked to the scheme which proposed the construction of two sets of semi-detached dwellings with parking.  Access and egress of the site would be possible in a forward gear, there was a bus stop nearby and existing parking restrictions were in place, therefore, the Council’s Highways Department were satisfied with the development.  Representations in objection, including one from a Ward Councillor and in support had been submitted.  The Strategic Director, Place then recommended the application for approval, subject to the conditions as set out in the report.

 

A Ward Councillor was present at the meeting and outlined the following concerns:

 

·         The proposed development had raised concerns and the demolition had caused consternation in the community.

·         It had been acknowledged that the site would be used for residential purposes once sold.

·         The proposal would be an overdevelopment of the site.

·         The proximity to 37 Beacon Road was an issue and it would be overshadowed.

·         Cars on the site would cause issues.

·         Beacon Road was extremely busy and dangerous, with accidents involving vehicles and pedestrians.

·         Cars constantly parked on one side of Beacon Road.

·         He was not against the principle of residential development on the site.

·         The number of proposed properties should be reduced, which would decrease the number of vehicles.    

·         Buses ran every 10 minutes from the stop and the sight lines would be blocked for the access point

·         He was not happy that a development of this size would be constructed on the site.

 

The Strategic Director, Place responded to some of the comments made stating that the proposal needed to meet the Council’s density requirements and the current layout achieved this.  He noted that there would be a small projection in front of 37 Beacon Road and the gardens would not be overshadowed as they faced south.  With regards to the access road, the existing highway restrictions would preserve the visibility.

 

An objector was present at the meeting and reported that the garden on 37 Beacon Road would be overshadowed.  There had been problems with youths in the area and the Council had erected a fence, which had resulted in complaints from residents about the height.  The proposed houses would affect the garden of 37 Beacon Road.

 

The applicant was at the meeting and stated that:

 

·         The Lodge had been in a state of disrepair when  ...  view the full minutes text for item 33.
