P07/08.49 Planning Applications

49.1 RR/2007/2335/P 2 Coach House Cottages, Hurst Lane, Sedlescombe. Erection of conservatory to rear of property.

49.2 RR/2007/2199/P Park View, The Street, Sedlescombe. Demolition of Park View and outbuildings and erection of four detached dwellings and four bay garage building with provision of six parking spaces.
Notes:

  1. Application RR/2004/3642/P submitted in outline in 2004 and refused by Rother District Council because of the substandard width and visibility of the access road at its junction with the B2244 (only reason).
  2. Allowed on appeal. The Inspector considered the central matter was the last lawful use of the appeal site which was a mixed use as a commercial coach depot and residential. He decided that lawfully the commercial depot could restart at any time and, if it did, the lawful use of the site could lead to greater potential to harm highway safely along the driveway and to damage the adjoining buildings than the proposed dwellings. He considered the visibility at the access to be satisfactory in both directions.
  3. The Inspector stated that the design of the buildings would need to be carefully controlled.
  4. In the absence of any objection from the Environment Agency, no flooding problems were envisaged.
  5. The Inspector stated that it appeared to him that the development would not impinge on the access of any residents to their garages.

P07/08.50 Appeals.
