A.        23 Lyon Street, Queensbury, Bradford                            Queensbury


A partially retrospective planning application was presented by Officers in relation to change of use of land to the side of 23 Lyon Street, Queensbury to form ancillary garden space and for the construction of walls/fencing.


The development site is a triangular piece of land to the west side of Lyon Street, and is located at the head of Victoria Street and Wellington Street which run perpendicular to Lyon Street and lies within the Queensbury Conservation Area.


Officers went through the history of applications which had been previously submitted for information to assist Members.


Members were then given the opportunity to ask questions in relation to the application the details of which and the responses received are summarised below.


One Member asked whether the site was owned by the applicant and Officers were able to confirm that there was no through route present and that the applicant had purchased the land.


A question was raised in relation to how the site would and could be used as the application stated that it was for a garden and parking and whether it would be used more for parking than as a garden.  Officers stated that there was a hardstanding on the site and that there were no restrictions to prevent it being used for parking.

A number of objections had been received as well as letters in support of the application which resulted in the application being considered by the Planning Panel.
