    Updates

    Members were informed of an additional letter of objection received and a further statement from the Conservation Officer.

    Members were also informed that the Reason for Referral to Committee be amended to read: -

    Cllr. Jones has referred the applications to committee on the grounds that refusal of the application would not bring conservation benefits.

    This item was deferred from the October committee meeting at officer’s request to consider additional information supplied by the applicant on the day of the October meeting. The agent requested that the application be returned to the December meeting, rather than the November committee.

    At the October meeting, Members determined that the current Enforcement Notices in respect of the works carried out be withdrawn. If the application is refused at a future meeting, new Enforcement Notices would be authorised

    Members were further informed that officers received a revised plan from the agent on 5 December 2018, amending the proposed wall and access details.  On the same day of this meeting, officers received an email from the agent requesting the application be deferred until the January Planning Committee to allow the scheme to be amended in line with this plan. Due to the need to re-consult on the amended plans with statutory consultees including the Highways Authority and your Conservation Officer, it was recommended that the application be DEFERRED from the meeting to allow for this due process to take place with a view to returning the application to the committee at the earliest possible opportunity following the re-consultation period.

    The Chairman stated that he received an email from the applicant stating that she wished the application to be determined this evening. It was clarified that officers had taken instruction from the agent and the applicant was in agreement subsequent to the email she sent.

    To seek further clarification, the Chairman adjourned the meeting at 6.25pm and reconvened at 6.35pm.

    The Chairman stated that Agenda Item 4(b) – 24 St Margaret’s Avenue – would be considered first while adjournment on this item continues. Cllr D Jones, Cllr Mrs Jones and Cllr Hall left the room and the Vice-Chairman took the Chair while discussion and voting on 24 St Margaret’s Avenue took place as set out in Minute No 193 below.

    Following the conclusion of Agenda Item 4(b), the Chairman returned to the meeting and informed Members that the applicant has requested that the matter be determined tonight.

    Officers stated that as the amended plans had now been rescinded, their original recommendation now stands and Members can determine the application based on the plans originally submitted.

    Public Speaking

    Ms H Rosier, the agent for the applicant, spoke in support of the application highlighting the neighbours’ statements and the submitted photograph as evidence that the wall was not in place when the building was  ...  view the full minutes text for item 192.
