Minutes:

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

 

(a)       21 Nab Wood Drive, Shipley                               Shipley

 

A ‘Householder’ planning application for a two-storey side extension with front dormer window, single-storey rear extension, front porch and bay window extension at 21 Nab Wood Drive, Shipley – 19/02942/HOU

 

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 comprised a semi-detached dwelling built of natural stone and render with a red concrete tiled roof. The dwelling was situated in a residential area surrounded by properties of a varying designs. The property faced onto Nab Wood Drive, and was situated near a cross roads between Nab Wood Drive and Nab Wood Grove.

 

It was reported that the previous application was withdrawn by the agent following discussions with the Planning Service, which identified harmful issues principally due to the design of the two storey side extension. Following receipt of the current application, a number of revised plans had been submitted to further amend the design of the proposal. The amendments were:-

 

- reduce the width of the side extension and the front dormer window,

- alter the roof design of the side extension,

- increase the setback of the side extension

- reduce the size of the front porch.

 

It was reported that the revisions addressed all the points of concern and potential reasons for refusal that were previously identified.

 

Members were informed that seven objections had been received, including one from a Shipley Ward Councillor with a request to refer the application to the Area Planning Panel; three further comments had been received in response to the revised plans; these were received from existing objectors which included that the two storey side extension was disproportionate to the neighbourhood; overshadowing; overlooking; loss of hedges; no account taken for drainage run off; plans did not accurately reflect the true parking arrangements; negative impact on the natural environment.

 

An objector (resident of No 19) attended the meeting and spoke of his concerns in relation to the extension which included the extension would cause overshadowing due to its height; the height of the property would overshadow the Solar Panels on his property; the hallway was a habitable room and could be overlooked and cause loss of privacy; concerned that the extension could cause sinking. 

 

In response it was reported that given the height and position of the side extension any loss of light to Solar Panels would be minimal; the loss of light to a solar panel did not affect residential amenity and so it was not a material planning consideration; sinking or collapse was a matter for compliance with any relevant Building Regulations; hallways were not classed as a habitable room but acknowledged the objectors point on how it was used.

 

It was reported that the rear extension would be three metres  ...  view the full minutes text for item 28.
