                                                            (Mohammed Yousuf – 01274 434605)

Minutes:

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

 

(a)       78 Westfield Lane, Shipley                                  Windhill and Wrose

 

Demolition of existing detached dwelling and construction of 5 detached houses at 78 Westfield Lane, Wrose, Shipley – 19/04644/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 this previously developed site comprised a largish plot, (0.17 hectares) currently occupied by a two-storey stone-built house (No 78) which was set centrally within the land in an elevated position fronting Westfield Lane. The garden areas that surrounded the house had largely been cleared of vegetation. Stone outbuildings were sited to the northern corner against the boundaries with some neighbouring residential properties. A private access track existed between the western side of the land and No 74 Westfield Lane. This lead up to a disused reservoir site and was understood to have been a maintenance access for Yorkshire Water. A drive access to the house was currently provided between gate piers in the south east corner. Stone walls defined the boundaries to the north east and north-west edges of the site. Levels rose up from Westfield Lane towards the rear of the site. The area was residential in character with a mix of property types and styles. A relatively recent infill, detached dwelling lay to the south west. Semi-detached, two storey properties were sited to the south-east and the north-west, with dormer bungalows across Westfield Lane.

 

It was reported that letters/emails had been received by 10 individuals in objection and 14 in support on the application. The objectors concerns included that the proposal would be overdevelopment of the site; the proposed dwellings were too close to site boundaries and would lead to a loss of light for neighbouring property; the proposed dwellings would overlook neighbouring property; the proposal would lead to an increase in traffic and on street parking that would exacerbate existing problems on Westfield Lane; a number of trees had been removed from the site; construction traffic would cause problems with the surrounding road network; the proposal would cause problems for the local drainage network; the existing house was a local landmark and should not be demolished.

 

Members were informed that the comments in support of the proposal included that the proposal would deliver new family homes into the area and contribute to the local community; the current house on the site was out dated and out of character with surrounding more modern properties; the proposal would make more efficient use of a large site and deliver more family homes; the proposal would remove an outdated, derelict house and outbuildings.

It was reported that recommendation 4 of the conditions of approval needed to be amended to state that the development shall not be occupied until details of a scheme for separate foul and surface water drainage, including any existing sewers, culverts,  ...  view the full minutes text for item 40.
