(a)       18 Moorhead Lane, Shipley                                 Shipley


Full permission for the demolition of an existing garage and construction of detached dwelling at 18 Moorhead Lane, Shipley - 19/01941/FUL


The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He explained that the site comprised a garage and side garden of a detached two-storey 1960’s property.  A garage block and area of hard standing that served the adjacent Richmond Mews was to the north of the site.  The wider area was almost wholly residential in character with a mix of type, style and age of properties. He provided a summary of the proposal and stated that eight objections and seven letters in support had been received which were outlined in his report.  He stated that the height of the proposed dwelling had been reduced during the course of the application and he considered the scale and appearance to better respect the character of the locality.  There was a step down in roof height from the parent dwelling, which allowed a better separation than initially proposed.  The site was located within the Saltaire World Heritage Site Buffer Zone and the Design and Conservation team were satisfied that the proposed works would have no impact on its setting.  He stated there was 10.5 metres separation distance between the proposal and 8 Richmond Mews. He recommended the application for approval with the addition of a condition to require the applicant to erect a 1.8 metre screen fence to the boundary to prevent overlooking or loss of privacy to adjacent occupiers and an amendment to the proposed Condition 3 to ensure off street parking was implemented for both the existing and proposed dwelling.


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


·         The tree at the front of the site had been assessed by officers and was not considered to present visibility issues for drivers leaving the site.

·         The developer would fund the costs associated with implementing a dropped kerb.

·         Natural stone was proposed for the front and rear elevations with render proposed to the sides; the proposed materials were considered acceptable.


A Ward Councillor spoke in support of the application and stated that:


·         The applicant had put forward the proposal for his daughter to reside in; she was a young professional working in Leeds.

·         The applicant and agent had worked with officers on the proposal.

·         The proposal would have two car parking spaces.

·         The proposal would improve the look of the area and was in keeping with the area.

·         The proposal would not cause overshadowing.

·         All highways concerns had been addressed.

·         The wall on the boundary of the property would remain in place.


A Ward Councillor spoke in objection to the application and stated that:


·         He was speaking on behalf of the neighbouring resident at 8 Richmond Mews.

·         He was also raising concerns about the impact on the residential amenity of occupiers at 10 Richmond Mews.

·         The neighbouring residents would be faced with a large wall  ...  view the full minutes text for item 16.
