(a)     46 Dawnay Road, Bradford                                               Little Horton

 

A householder application for the conversion of the roof from a hipped roof to a gable with the addition of dormer windows to the front and rear of No 46 Dawnay Road, Bradford - 18/05034/HOU

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He reported that the proposal could be carried out under permitted development rights and there were other dormers on the area, however, it had been presented for consideration as the applicant was an officer of the Council.   

 

Resolved –

 

That the application be approved for the reasons and subject to the conditions set out in the Strategic Director, Place’s technical report.

 

Action: Strategic Director, Place

 

 

(b)     62 Glenrose Drive, Bradford                                              Great Horton

 

A full planning application for the construction of a single detached dwelling within the vacant garden area to the rear and demolition of the existing detached garage and the addition of a front porch at 62 Glenrose Drive, Bradford - 18/04096/FUL

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He explained that the application proposed the construction of a dwelling within the northwest corner of the rear garden area of the host property.  The existing garage would be demolished, the driveway extended and two parking spaces for the current house would be provided at the front.  The materials to be used would be similar and the proposal would not impact on the character of the area, result in a loss of outlook and create over dominance or over shadowing.  A number of representations in objection had been submitted and the issues were covered in the officer’s report.  The Strategic Director, Place confirmed that the vast majority of the site was within Flood Zone 1, however, a small section was in Flood Zone 2.  He reported that a flood risk assessment had been completed and a number of mitigation measures and conditions had been proposed.  The application was then recommended for approval, subject to the conditions as set out in the report.

 

Objectors were present at the meeting and raised the following points:

 

·         The proposal would be harmful to the character and appearance of the area.

·         The development would be against Council Policy and the Replacement Unitary Development Plan.

·         The property would infringe on privacy and block views.

·         The site was part of a green field and used as a play area.

·         The proposal could cause potential flooding of neighbouring gardens.

·         Neighbouring properties would be at risk.

·         There was a large stream that joined Bradford Beck at the rear.

·         The development would set a precedent.

·         The applicant did not live at number 62 and was not being respectful towards neighbours.

·         Residents were against the development.

·         The construction would cause noise and disturbance.

·         The application should be rejected.
