PLANNING

 

 

 

 

0031.1/16

2016/1854/FUL – Conversion and extension of existing dwelling to one two bedroom and one three bedroom apartment/flats at 11 Park Hayes, Leigh-on-Mendip for

Mr P Lewis

 

 

 

 

0031.1.1/16

The above application was discussed.  It was proposed by DS, seconded by PF and agreed unanimously to recommend approval with the following caveats

 

 

 

 

 

·                     The chimney are not shown on the drawings but should remain to be consistent with the rest of the style of housing

 

 

·                     The materials used should match existing

 

 

·                     Although this application is contrary to the village design statement, the style is consistent with the other houses in Park Hayes

 

 

·                     With reference to the Local Plan, this proposal makes best use of existing housing stock and provides two, much needed, low cost dwellings

 

 

·                     No feedback has been received by the Parish Council from the neighbours

 

 

 

 

0031.1.2/16

The Clerk will inform MDC of the decision of the Council

Grant for Events Boards

 

 

 

 

0032.1.1/16

The Parish Council had been asked for a grant for weatherproof advertising boards which could be displayed along the main roads for use by any village organisation

 

 

 

 

0032.1.2/16

The Clerk had visited the company who had supplied the original quote but questioned the robustness of the materials suggested.

 

 

 

 

0032.1.3/16

It was therefore agreed that CC would come up with a design and specification for the boards.
