(b)       50 Burley Lane, Menston, Ilkley                                     Wharfedale


Variation of Condition 1 of planning permission 14/01653/FUL (this condition was added by non-material amendment 14/01653/NMA01) - 17/05321/VOC


The Strategic Director, Place informed Members that the application was to vary a condition of planning permission previously granted in 2014 for the construction of a detached dwelling with integral garage.  The application proposed to alter the schedule of approved drawings and permit amendments to the layout, vehicular turning area, relationship with the adjacent dwelling and amenity space of the approved dwelling.  He reported that works had commenced on the site and stated that the application proposed modest revisions which were not considered to amount to material alterations to the original application.  Design changes to the front elevation were also considered relatively modest and included a second gable fronted feature and reduction in the size of the windows proposed.  He stated that some of the points raised by objectors related to the principle of the development, which was not being considered as permission for the development had already been granted. He reported that a letter of support had recently been received from a neighbouring property expressing full support for the application and stating that they were the most directly affected by the proposed changes which they considered to provide them with more privacy.   He considered the amended proposed materials were an improvement to those previously approved.  The application was then recommended for approval subject to conditions.


In response to a Member’s questions, the Strategic Director, Place stated that the height of the proposed ridge was 7.2m as opposed to 7.1m in the previously approved application.


A representative of Menston Parish Council was present at the meeting and made the following comments:


·         The Parish Council welcomed the use of natural stone but considered the house to be slightly out of character with the neighbouring property.

·         The Parish Council did not object to the variation of the condition but had concerns about the access for construction traffic due to the narrowness of Burley Lane.

·         He suggested an additional condition be placed on the application to state that site traffic had to be parked on the site and not on Burley Lane.


An objector was present at the meeting and commented that:


·         He did not consider the correct procedure was being followed in line with Section 73 of the Town and County Planning Act 1990 and believed that the full planning application should be re-submitted.

·         He stated there was no definition of ‘minor’ amendments and did not consider the variation of  ...  view the full minutes text for item 39.
