SEDLESCOMBE PARISH COUNCIL

RESOLUTIONS

Planning 29/03/11

P10/11.132

That the Chairman of the Committee is authorised to sign the Minutes of the Meeting of the Planning Committee held on 07/03/11.
P10.11.134.1

RR/2011/278/P 1 Manor Cottages, The Street, Sedlescombe. Erection of single storey, timber framed glazed conservatory. Applicant Mr Lake.

RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports a refusal for the following reasons:

  1. Being Grade 1 listed, 1-5 Manor Cottages is one of only 40 similarly-listed buildings in the whole of Rother District and the only Grade 1 listed building in Sedlescombe and must, therefore, be preserved as far as possible.
  2. The conservatory would not be in keeping with the existing building and it would unreasonably harm the amenities of adjoining properties.  The current occupiers of 2, 3 and 5 Manor Cottages are objecting to the proposal.
  3. The conservatory would prejudice the character, appearance and setting of heritage features of this important 15th/16th century building described in its listing as "one of the finest timber-framed buildings in Sussex".
  4. Manor Cottages is within the Sedlescombe Conservation Area where harmful changes are to be resisted, even in unlisted buildings.

P10/11.134.3

RR/2011/429/P Lyndale, Churchland Lane, Sedlescombe. Erection of 2No. sheds and 1No. greenhouse (permission required by planning condition 5 to RR/2010/1404/P). Applicant Ms W Glaze.

RESOLVED: That Sedlescombe Parish Council does not object to the principle of having sheds and a greenhouse on this land; however the trees are shown incorrectly on the plan.  They are incorrectly named and shown in the wrong position.  The poplars (not oaks) which border Churchland Lane are very large and hollow and should be looked at by a tree professional urgently.
