Minutes:

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

 

(a)     2 Markfield Avenue, Bradford                                            Wyke

 

Outline application for residential development of land (0.1ha) for two dormer bungalows with all matters reserved at 2 Markfield Avenue, Wyke, Bradford - 19/01352/OUT

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He explained that the application was outline for the construction of two dormer bungalows with all matters reserved.  There was a culvert that ran along side 2 Markfield Avenue and a combined sewer.  An indicative plan had been submitted and the distance to the combined sewer from the house was 2 metres.  The proposed dwellings would project forward slightly and access would be via Markfield Avenue.  Members noted that a number of objections had been received including one from a Ward Councillor that had requested that application be presented to the Panel.  The Strategic Director, Place stated that the National Planning Policy Framework covered the need to boost the supply of housing and the two proposed units would make a modest contribution.  He confirmed that the density was 20 houses per hectare for the site, however, it was acknowledged that the site was constrained due to the culvert and sewer.  The site was located in a sustainable location with access on to Markfield Avenue and was considered acceptable.  Parking provision had not been identified in the proposal, however, officers believed that it could be accommodated and the impact on 365 New Works Road would be mitigated by the distances.  Consultations had been undertaken with Yorkshire Water and the Council’s Drainage Team and they had not objected to the application, subject to conditions.  The Strategic Director, Place clarified that the proposal was a resubmission of the application that had been refused in February 2019 and the both reasons had now been satisfactorily resolved.  He then recommended the application for approval, subject to the conditions as set out in the report.      

 

In response to Members’ queries, the Strategic Director, Place reiterated that Yorkshire Water had commented that the proposal would be acceptable subject to conditions 7 and 8 on the application.  He explained that the new access point would now be located on Markfield Avenue, not New Works Road and that the proposal was outline with all matters reserved.  

 

A Ward Councillor was present and began by reporting that he had not received a notification letter in relation to the application and requested that the matter was investigated.  He then made the following comments:

 

·         Access and egress would still be via Markfield Avenue and only 10 metres approximately from the previous proposal.

·         No turning circle had been provided.

·         The access was close to New Works Road.

·         Commercial businesses operated on New Works Road and it was busy.

·         The proposal would be in close proximity to a public sewer and culvert.

·         The previous application had not been supported and this proposal was similar.

·         The sewer  ...  view the full minutes text for item 5.
