Minutes:

The Chair advised that the order of the agenda would be considered as follows: items, G, H, C, A, B, D, E and F.  For the purpose of the minutes, items were minuted in the order they appeared in the published agenda.

 

(a)       20 Brackendale Parade Bradford BD10 0SR - 21/03248/FUL

 

Proposal: A full planning application for the construction of a new three-bedroom dwelling within the curtilage of 20 Brackendale Parade, Bradford, BD10 0SR.

 

The Strategic Director, Place, provided a detailed overview of the planning application, showing plans and photographs of the proposal. The Panel was informed that the proposal was not deemed to be harmful to the neighbouring properties.

 

An objector had registered to speak in relation to the proposed scheme, and at the request of the Chair, had raised a number of points, including:

 

·         health and safety concerns as the development was in close proximity to electricity sub-station

·         concerns to highways safety;

·         concerns to work undertaken in the garden as this was too small for this development;

·         the proposed development raised ecological concerns;

·         all properties in the area had a covenants in place.  The proposed scheme would be detrimental to the development and adjacent properties;

·         increase car parking to the narrow street.

 

In response to the objector’s concerns, the Senior Planning Officer advised the Panel covenants on a property was not a planning matter, the person seeking to enforce covenant would be the legal owner of the property. In terms of parking, the proposal provided parking spaces for two vehicles, in addition to off street parking available.

 

In response to a Member’s question, the Senior Planning Officer informed the Panel that similar proposal had been granted planning permission and this proposal would be in line with other developments in the area.

 

The applicant/agent had registered to speak, and at the request of the Chair, informed the Committee that that proposed scheme adhered to all the relevant planning policies and plans. The proposal had been reduced and the design and layout was in character to the area.

 

The Chair moved to the vote on the officer’s recommendation and it was

 

Resolved:

 

That the application number 21/03248/FUL be approved for the reasons and subject to the conditions set out in the Strategic Director, Place’s technical report (Document “G”).
