Full planning application for a change of use for a section of land from adopted highway to private curtilage at 5 Dale View, Ilkley - 19/01578/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 the application site was a grass verge within the adopted highway at the junction of Dale View and Beverley Rise.  The surrounding area comprised of modern detached houses.  The application site was a triangular shaped open verge between the footways and the existing boundary to the curtilage of the detached house at 5 Dale View which was occupied by the applicants.  There was also a hard surfaced pavement running north-south alongside the adjoining curtilage which was also part of the land for which change of use permission was sought.  Photographs of other grass verges in the area were shown to Members.  He stated that this was a re-submission following a refused application by the Panel in July 2018 which was later dismissed on appeal by the Planning Inspector in December 2018.  The previous application had sought to incorporate the entire grass verge into the residential curtilage of 5 Dale View and the applicants had now much reduced the extent of verge they were applying to incorporate within their curtilage and had stated this was for additional privacy within their garden.  The application proposed to extend the residential curtilage by 2.1 metres to the side (east) of the plot to encompass the footpath and a triangular area of land to the north east.  A timber fence, 800mm high, was proposed to create the new boundary along the side and a low stone wall (600mm high) was proposed along the front boundary with Dale View.  The proposal would leave 150.5 square metres of open space as verge out of the total of 250.5 square metres of land.  22 objections, including one from a Ward Councillor had been received and Ilkley Parish Council recommended the application for refusal.  He stated that the land had been formally listed as an asset of community value (ACV);  ...  view the full minutes text for item 10.
