A householder application for a side extension, an increase to the roof ridge height, the addition of front and rear dormer windows, inclusion of a porch and balcony – 19/05198/HOU.

 

Members were advised that the application complied with policy in all respects and that it had been presented for their consideration simply in furtherance of transparency of decision making as the applicant was a serving Councillor.

 

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)  Land East of 43 Brunswick Road, Bradford   Idle and Thackley

 

A full planning application to change the use of a development on land east of 43 Brunswick Road from the previously approved 10 C3 residential apartments to form a C2 residential institution (five apartments and one six bed house) and the installation of roof lights to the rear elevation – 19/04986/FUL

 

Members were reminded that this site had previously been granted planning permission and were advised that the buildings now identified were identical to those previously approved. The application was simply in respect of a change of use of the site to C2 use for people with mental health conditions. It was stressed that the exterior of the proposed premises was to remain unchanged, that staff would not sleep over and that there would be sufficient off-street parking for the proposed use.

 

In response to questions from members, the Senior Planning Officer advised that the only changes that were proposed were internal and were in order to reconfigure layout; the application had been made to reflect the proposed change of use; and that although the road was narrow, there was enough parking on site at the development.

 

A ward councillor attended the meeting and represented the concerns of local residents, stating that although some concerns had been addressed, some remained. He asked for confirmation that the dimensions of the buildings had not changed and that the external layout had not changed. He stressed that local residents were supportive of the proposed use by vulnerable people but were concerned that the C2 use class covered a wide variety of institutions, some of which would not be appropriate for this location, given its limitations.

 

It was confirmed that both the dimensions and layout were unchanged and it was suggested that an additional condition could be imposed to ensure that, if a different use within the C2 use class was proposed in future, it would have to be considered afresh.

 

A local resident attended the meeting and stressed that local people needed protection in respect of this particular issue.

 

The applicant also attended and stated that he was trying to provide a facility for people who needed care  ...  view the full minutes text for item 34.
