DISCLOSURES OF INTEREST

(Members Code of Conduct - Part 4A of the Constitution)

 

To receive disclosures of interests from Members and co-opted members on matters to be considered at the meeting. The disclosure must include the nature of the interest.

 

An interest must also be disclosed in the meeting when it becomes apparent to the Member during the meeting.

 

Notes:

 

(1)       Members may remain in the meeting and take part fully in discussion and voting unless the interest is a disclosable pecuniary interest or an interest which the Member feels would call into question their compliance with the wider principles set out in the Code of Conduct.  Disclosable pecuniary interests relate to the Member concerned or their spouse/partner.

 

(2)       Members in arrears of Council Tax by more than two months must not vote in decisions on, or which might affect, budget calculations, and must disclose at the meeting that this restriction applies to them.  A failure to comply with these requirements is a criminal offence under section 106 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992. 

 

(3)       Members are also welcome to disclose interests which are not disclosable pecuniary interests but which they consider should be made in the interest of clarity.

 

(4)       Officers must disclose interests in accordance with Council Standing Order 44.

Minutes:

A householder planning application for the construction of two storey side extension with garage, and front and rear dormer windows at 204 Moore Avenue, Bradford - 19/02743/HOU.

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and reported that the application related to the left hand half of a two storey semi-detached house that faced towards Moore Avenue.  The dwelling was set behind a 2m high hedge and had a driveway up the side of the house.  Number 204 and its other half, 202, were on the corner of Moore Avenue and Poplar Road. 

 

It was reported that the house was set in a good sized plot with garden to the front, rear and side.  A garage formerly stood on the land to side of the house.  Planning permission had previously been granted for a two storey side extension but this had not been constructed. The proposal was to erect a two storey side extension and install dormer windows to the front and rear roof slopes.

 

The applicant attended the meeting and spoke in support of his application.

 

It was reported that four representations had been received including one from a Ward Councillor. Summary of the representations included visual amenity, residential amenity, impact on highway safety and other matters.

 

Members were informed that the proposal was acceptable in principle and would have no significant adverse impact on nearby residents.  The size and design of the proposed development complied with the relevant policies and guidance contained in Core Strategy Polices.

 

Resolved –

 

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

Change of use of upper floors from vacant offices to five flats (Class C3) and associated works at 246-250 Manningham Lane, Bradford.  Initially the proposal was to create six flats however; amended plans were received on 6 August 2019 that reduced the number from six to five - 19/02633/FUL

 

The Strategic Director, Place gave a presentation setting out the proposals and tabled plans detailing the layout.  He informed Members that the application was before them due to the applicant being related to a serving Councillor.  He added that whilst his report stated there were no off street parking spaces provided as part of the application, plans submitted by the applicant showed there were some off street parking spaces available, but as they were outside the red line boundary of the application site, they could not be conditioned as part of this application. 

 

The applicant’s agent was in attendance at the meeting and stated that the application was before the Panel in the interest of transparency only and had been recommended for approval.

 

Resolved –
