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


(a)       38 Grove Road, Ilkley                                                        Ilkley


Full application for the construction of two detached dwellings on land to the north of 38 Grove Road, Ilkley - 18/05269/FUL


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 38 Grove Road was a substantial detached house within the Ilkley Conservation Area.  The application site was part of the large back garden of the house and there was currently a dense cluster of trees along the west boundary of the garden. There was a modern detached bungalow at 65 Kings Road, to the east of the site and a large detached house at 77 Kings Road, to the west.  He reported that the two proposed five bedroom dwellings would have steeply pitched roofs which would sit well within the character of the area.  He summarised the representations received (four in objection and six in support) which included support from Ilkley Civic Society that praised the proposed contemporary design.  No objections had been received from the Council’s Conservation Officer.  Objectors had raised concerns regarding the loss of daylight to neighbouring properties at 65 and 77 Kings Road, however, he considered there were no concerns in terms of loss of outlook, light or dominance as a single storey side garage would sit to the side of each dwelling and there were no habitable room windows facing the neighbouring properties.  The proposed dwellings would be 10.5 metres in height and there would be a distance of approximately 26 metres to the houses opposite the site (72 and 74 Kings Road) which exceeded the required separation distances.  He referred to the tree report submitted by the applicant which identified that trees on the site were not in a good condition, although protected by tree preservation orders.  The Council’s Tree Officer had agreed with the assessment and advised on the felling of the trees and replanting of better quality trees.  The replacement tree replanting scheme would consist of four trees (three black pines and one silver birch) at the frontage of the proposals which he considered to be a good mix to enhance the conservation area. He then recommended the application for approval.


In response to Members’ questions, the Strategic Director, Place stated that:


·         Ilkley Parish Council had raised concerns for the adjacent property due to the proposed trees but the trees were proposed at the centre of the frontage of the site and this concern had not been clarified.

·         The height of the proposed roof pitches were to allow bedrooms in the roof space and reflected the theme of traditional properties in Ilkley.

·          The proposed materials were mainly natural stone and slate for the roof with contemporary elements incorporated at the rear of the properties.


An objector was present at the meeting. Pre-submitted photographs were tabled and  ...  view the full minutes text for item 5.
