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


(a)       13 Prod Lane, Baildon                                                                  Baildon


Householder application for construction of a single storey rear extension, a timber car port/garage and driveway gate at 13 Prod Lane, Baildon - 17/04743/HOU


The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He explained that the application proposed the construction of an extension to the rear, a garage and gates to the driveway.  Members noted that two properties were built in the grounds of the host dwelling and all shared the private drive.  A couple of objections had been received, including one from a Ward Councillor, in relation to the proposed car port and the gate.  It was reported that the car port would be an open low rise structure with supporting columns and the adjacent hedge would be maintained.  It was also confirmed that a gate up to 2 metres in height could be installed without planning permission and any obstruction of access would be a private legal matter.  The application was then recommended for approval, subject to the conditions as set out in the report.


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


·         She was representing the objector who resided at 13b Prod Lane.

·         The proposed extension was acceptable.

·         The proposed car port would block access to the objector’s property for maintenance.

·         The proposed gate could block access and could become locked.

·         The deeds stated that the access should be kept unobstructed and the gate would be an obstruction.

·         The driveway was shared access and a gate would not be compatible.

·         Many vehicles used the driveway.


In response to some of the comments made, the Chair stated that the gate and drive access were civil matters.  Another Member indicated that the car port would be open and not preclude access in relation to property maintenance.


Resolved –


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

A retrospective planning application for the change of use of part of the Addingham Memorial Hall from Community Hall use (D1) to use as a retail showroom (A1) at 151 Main Street, Addingham - 17/03061/FUL


The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout. 


In addition to the information contained in his report, he stated that the Trustees of Addingham Memorial Hall had previously rented out the room to a small catering business; the Trustees had not sought a change of use for the hall at that time and therefore the catering business had not had planning permission to operate and an enforcement notice had been issued; it had subsequently moved out of the premises after approximately one year of occupation.  The current occupier was a business owner selling double  ...  view the full minutes text for item 16.
