Erection of home office/store/greenhouse and timber shed at North End Farm, North End, CSM

It was proposed, seconded and unanimously agreed to support this application provided that the office has a plain roof without a decorative dormer and meets Listed Buildings regs.



Erection of garage at 1 Old School Cottage, St Michael Road, Creech St Michael

Mrs E Webb declared a personal interest, being a member of the Village Hall Committee. It was proposed, seconded and unanimously agreed that a response would be made as follows: (1) This would be overdevelopment and the garage would swamp the original Old School House building. (2) It would have a detrimental impact upon the character of this historic building, spoiling its dimensions and detracting from its appearance. (3) There would be insufficient manoeuvre room for the person using the garage, and in our opinion the driver would be forced to impinge upon the parking space belonging to no. 2 School Cottages. (4) The access/egress to the garage is directly across a pedestrian walkway and the user would have no way of visually checking that there are no pedestrians approaching. This would be dangerous for all pedestrians, particularly the elderly, disabled and parents with pushchairs or prams. (5) The original parking space for no. 1 Old School Cottage has been made into garden and we would submit that this constitutes ?change of use? and a planning permission should have been sought for this. (6) The garage would exclude light from no. 2 School Cottage.



Erection of chalet bungalow and attached garage with new drive off Francis Close on site adjacent to 3 Francis Close, Cr Heathfield

It was proposed, seconded and agreed by a vote of 7 with 2 against and 1 abstention to support this application.



Erection of rear extension to form covered walkway at Heathfield House, Cr Heathfield

It was proposed, seconded and unanimously agreed to support this application.



Erection of 1 storey rear extension, 57 Tristram Drive, CSM

It was proposed, seconded and unanimously agreed to support this application.


The meeting closed at 8.55pm.
