SEDLESCOMBE PARISH COUNCIL

RESOLUTIONS

Planning Committee 30/08/11

P11/12.59 That the Chairman of the Committee is authorised to sign the Minutes of the Meeting of the Planning Committee held on 02/08/11.
P11/12.60.1

RR/2011/1594/P Bulmer Lodge, The Street, Sedlescombe TN33 0AQ. Request that the building can remain as built. It has been built to the plans, drawings and specifications of both drawing No.BL002 dated June 2008 on RR/2008/1676 and Drawing No.094-03 on RR/2011/940/P. RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports a refusal for the following reason: The height of the garage will affect the amenities of the neighbouring property Garner Cottage. A single garage with a shallow pitch roof would be more acceptable in this position.

  RESOLVED: That the Clerk should report the installation of 3 solar panels at Bulmer Lodge to Rother Enforcement as the property is within the Conservation Area and can be seen from a public footpath and the B2244.
P11/12.60.2 RR/2011/1643/P Greensleeves, The Street, Sedlescombe TN33 0QG. Removal of detached garage and garden shed. Erection of two storey extension. RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports approval of this application.
P11/12.60.3

RR/2011/1674/P Ivy Cottage, Rear of, Brede Lane, Sedlescombe TN33 0PR. Erection of three 3-bedroom detached houses on vacant land. RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports refusal of the application for the following reasons:

  1. The development would not be in keeping with and would unreasonably harm the amenities of adjoining properties contrary to Policy GD1(ii).
  2. The development would be contrary to Policy GD1(iii) it that it does not include appropriate parking provision with only two spaces allowed/dwelling and would result in unacceptable traffic conditions in Brede Lane. This area is close to a busy school, several housing estates including a development of 5 new properties and the Doctors' Surgery and driving and parking are already difficult, particularly at certain times of day.
  3. The development would be contrary to Policy GD1(iv) and (vi) as it would detract from the character and appearance of the locality which is currently a mature overgrown garden area. The views of this tree-filled garden are highly valued by those living in surrounding properties.
  4. The development would be contrary to Policy HG2(v) in that it would be intrusive in the landscape.
  5. The development would be contrary to Policy GD1(v) as it would not be compatible with the conservation of the natural beauty of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
  6. The development would be contrary to Policy GD1(vii) as the garden is currently a wildlife refuge and corridor. The proposed development would destroy the existing habitats of ecological value.
  7. The development would be contrary to Policy GD1(xv) in that the flooding risk to this and other areas of the Village would be likely to substantially increase by removal of mature trees and covering the garden with concrete and buildings. The ground is already boggy with springs and there is concern about increasing the flow of a small water course running between this property and 2 Park Shaw.
P11/12.60.5 RR/2011/1736/P West Lodge, Chapel Hill, Sedlescombe. Proposed external insulation and recladding of external walls, renewal of fascias, soffits and bargeboards to roof, renewal of windows, extension of front bay roof. RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports approval of this application.
