Minutes:

(a) 6 CARR GROVE, RIDDLESDEN, KEIGHLEY

 

Householder application to reduce the height of an existing store to allow formation of patio deck over the roof with fencing on either side at 6 Carr Grove, Riddlesden, Keighley.

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He provided an appraisal of the application and informed Members that 6 Carr Grove was a brick and rendered semi-detached house with a concrete tiled, Mansard roof. Carr Grove was in a residential area with similar semis lining the street. The land levels steeply inclined up towards the dwelling entrance leaving it in a prominent position in the street scene. 8 Carr Grove was at a higher level than the application property, which itself was at a higher level than 4 Carr Grove. The proposed decking was at the rear of the house.

 

Members were informed that Keighley Town Council had no objections.

 

It was reported that a petition with 6 signatures had been received requesting that the application be referred to the Area Planning Panel if approval was recommended and 2 comments had been made in objection to the application.

 

Members were informed that the summary of the objections included privacy of neighbours; the decked area caused overlooking to both gardens and into houses and was overbearing; its use as an amenity space would increase noise levels; the original reasons for refusal and reasons for dismissal of both appeals still applied and that it was of a poor design.

 

In response to a Members question it was confirmed that the garage roof would not have any decking.

 

A Keighley Town Councillor attended the meeting and reiterated that Keighley Town Council did not have any objections and considered the scheme to be a sensible compromise.

 

An objector attended the meeting and reported that the scheme was not appropriate and that it still caused overlooking and was of a poor design.

 

The applicant attended the meeting and spoke in support of his application he reported that he had spoken to Council Officers and came up with a design that would suit everyone and that a 2 metre fence would be erected which would solve the problem of overlooking.

 

In response to a Members question it was reported that as the substantial elements of the works were already in place it was not considered to be excessively onerous on the applicant to require the changes proposed to be commenced within 56 days of the decision notice.

 

Resolved –

 

That the application be approved for the reasons and subject to the conditions set out in the Strategic Director, Place’s technical report (Document “C”) subject to Condition 1 being amended to 56 days.

 

Action: Strategic Director, Place

 

(b)       BROOK HOUSE, HARDINGS LANE, ILKLEY

 

Full application for the demolition of a detached dwelling and its replacement with a new detached dwelling at Brook House Hardings Lane, Ilkley.

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled  ...  view the full minutes text for item 52.
