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.




(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.


Councillor Rickard disclosed an interest in relation to 25 Dale View, Ilkley and Sirius, Langbar Road, Ilkley (Minute 28(b) and (g)) as he had chaired a meeting of the Ilkley Town Council when it had considered both planning applications.  He therefore withdrew from the meeting during the consideration of both items 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 Abid Hussain disclosed, in the interest of clarity,  that there was an application pertaining to his ward (Keighley Central), but he had not discussed any of the matters relating to that application with any interested parties.


Carole Barrott (the City Solicitor’s representative) disclosed, in the interest of clarity, that she lived opposite 29 New Close Road, Shipley (Minute 28 (c)).  She stated that she knew the objectors and was aware of the applicant and that any legal advice she was asked to provide to the Panel would remain impartial.

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


(a)       1 Margerison Crescent, Ilkley                                         Ilkley


Householder application for construction of a replacement rear single-storey extension, and decked area to the side 1 Margerison Crescent, Ilkley - 18/02143/HOU


The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He explained that the application had been referred to the Panel by a Ward Councillor who had objected to the application and that three other objections had been received.  He explained that some objections had been received concerning works which did not require planning permission and informed Members that the application was being considered only on the basis of the construction of a single storey extension to the rear of the house, which would replace and enlarge the existing extension approved in 1998, and the formation of a raised platform or patio on the site of the existing conservatory at the north west side of the house.  He stated that, at present, the existing extension projected 2.25 metres from the back wall of the original house and the application proposed to enlarge this extension so that it projected 5 metres.  In relation to the proposed raised platform, he considered it would have no greater effects on the privacy of neighbours than the existing conservatory.  He considered the application to be acceptable with regard to the impact on daylight and overlooking onto neighbouring properties and recommended that it be approved.


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)       25 Dale View, Ilkley                                                            Ilkley


Householder application for a loft conversion incorporating front dormer window extensions and rooflights, rear rooflights and conversion of a flat roof to a pitched roof over the existing ground floor living room and entrance hall at 25 Dale View, Ilkley - 18/02804/HOU


The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He explained that the property was a 1970’s two-storey detached house with a flat roof situated in an estate of similar suburban style properties.  The application had received seven representations in objection which included one from a Ward Councillor.  Comments from neighbours had been received regarding confusion over the plans, specifically regarding fence heights and chimney details which had since been clarified by the submission of amended drawings which showed appropriate height boundary treatments and had confirmed the retention of the chimney.  One additional objection from a neighbour and one from the Ward Councillor had been received in response to the amended plans.  The main concerns raised related to overlooking from the proposed dormer windows and with regard to them being out of character with the surrounding area.  He stated that the dormer windows were originally proposed to be 2.2 metres wide but had since been reduced to 1.5 metres which accorded  ...  view the full minutes text for item 28.
