DISCLOSURES OF INTEREST

(Members Code of Conduct - Part 4A of the Constitution)

 

To receive disclosures of interests from Members and co-opted members on matters to be considered at the meeting. The disclosure must include the nature of the interest.

 

An interest must also be disclosed in the meeting when it becomes apparent to the Member during the meeting.

 

Notes:

 

(1)       Members may remain in the meeting and take part fully in discussion and voting unless the interest is a disclosable pecuniary interest or an interest which the Member feels would call into question their compliance with the wider principles set out in the Code of Conduct.  Disclosable pecuniary interests relate to the Member concerned or their spouse/partner.

 

(2)       Members in arrears of Council Tax by more than two months must not vote in decisions on, or which might affect, budget calculations, and must disclose at the meeting that this restriction applies to them.  A failure to comply with these requirements is a criminal offence under section 106 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992. 

 

(3)       Members are also welcome to disclose interests which are not disclosable pecuniary interests but which they consider should be made in the interest of clarity.

 

(4)       Officers must disclose interests in accordance with Council Standing Order 44.

Minutes:

Councillor Riaz disclosed that, in relation to 11 Ferrands Park Way, Harden, Bingley (Minute 22(e)), he had discussed the application with the applicant prior to becoming a member of the Panel.  He therefore withdrew from the meeting during the consideration of this item in accordance with the requirements of the Members’ Code of Conduct (Part 4A of the Constitution) and the Members’ Planning Code of Conduct (Part 4B of the Constitution).

 

Councillor Amran disclosed, in the interest of transparency, that he owned a property which was opposite one of the properties belonging to the applicant in relation to 11 Ferrands Park Way, Harden, Bingley (Minute 22(e)) but did not know the applicant personally and had not discussed the application with any other interested parties.

Listed building consent application for replacement windows to front and rear of 22 Amelia Street Saltaire - 18/03072/LBC

 

The Strategic Director, Place explained that the application was before the Panel in the interest of transparency as the property belonged to a member of staff within the Planning department.  He stated that no representations had been received in relation to the application and that the proposal complied with the design guidance in relation to the Saltaire Conservation Area.

 

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)       68 Wesley Place, Halifax Road, Keighley        Keighley East

 

A full planning application for the demolition of an existing building and construction of new dwelling at 68 Wesley Place, Halifax Road, Keighley - 18/00196/FUL

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He explained that the site was formerly a small corner shop and that planning permission had been granted to convert it into a one bedroomed flat in 2009.  The application had received seven representations in objection and 12 in support.  The main concerns raised related to obstructions from parked vehicles and overshadowing of neighbouring properties on Pear Street, however, the Highways Officer did not consider there to be a need for the applicant to provide additional car parking spaces than already proposed for the two-bedroom house and the properties on Pear Street were considered a significant distance away so no significant loss of light, overbearing or overshadowing was expected to result from the proposal.  He stated that the proposed house would be subservient to the adjacent terrace house, maintaining the traditional appearance along Halifax Road.  He referred to an area of land to the front of the building which was indicated on the plan as a bin storage area and stated that he considered it adequate.  He said that the proposal would provide housing and improve a derelict area.  The application was then recommended for approval.

 

In response to a Member’s questions, the Strategic Director, Place stated that it would be difficult to enforce the storage of bins off the highway but reiterated that there was a condition included to ensure the proposed bin storage area was implemented prior to the occupation of the building. 

 

The applicant was present at the meeting and made the following points:

 

·         The car parking proposal would not cause any obstructions and provided 150% of the required provision.

·         There was a bus stop nearby which could be used by the occupying residents of the property.

·         The proposed house would fit in with the street scene.

·         The building had been derelict for over 10 years and the proposal would bring it back into use. 

 

Resolved –
