Minutes:

(a)     26 Briggs Avenue, Bradford                                              Wibsey

 

A householder planning application for the construction of a single storey rear extension at 26 Briggs Avenue, Bradford - 19/02336/HOU

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He informed Members that the property had already been extended and the proposed single storey extension would still retain a distance of 8.9 metre to the rear boundary, therefore overlooking was not an issue.  A number of objections had been submitted and the issues raised were covered in the officer’s report.  The proposal would provide facilities for one of the occupants and the Council’s Occupational Therapy section had supported the request.  The application was then recommended for approval, subject to the conditions as set out in the report.

 

A supporter of the applicant was present at the meeting and stated that the application complied with all planning policies, but had been submitted to the Panel due to the objections received.  He then requested that the application be approved.

 

Resolved –

 

That the application be approved for the reasons and subject to the conditions set out in the Strategic Director, Place’s technical report.

 

Action: Strategic Director, Place

 

 

(b)     4 Stone Street, Sandy Lane, Bradford               Thornton & Allerton

 

A full planning application for the change of use from residential dwelling to mixed use of residential and child-minding at 4 Stone Street, Sandy Lane, Bradford - 19/01176/FUL

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He explained that the application requested the change of use from residential to mixed residential and child-minding.  The property was currently used as a hair salon at ground level and residential above.  The on-street parking was limited in the vicinity and the nearby public house had informally agreed that their car park could be used by the child-minding business.  The application was a re-submission due to the previous refusal on the grounds of parking provision.  It was noted that the applicant had agreed to limit the number of children looked after to seven and no changes would be made to the property.  The Strategic Director, Place then recommended the application for approval, subject to the conditions as set out in the report.

 

In response to Members’ questions, the Strategic Director, Place reported that:

 

·         The applicant did not own the car park that was to be used.

·         The informal arrangement regarding the car park had not altered the recommendation.  The proposal to approve the application had been based upon the number of children being limited to seven and the vehicle movements would not be detrimental.

·         It would be a requirement to register the children using the child-minding service with the Local Authority.

·         The operating hours would be conditioned.

·         Vehicles would only drop off and collect children.

·         A member of staff would collect the child from a vehicle  ...  view the full minutes text for item 10.
