Demolition of existing dwelling and construction of a new dwelling, detached garage with annex accommodation, swimming pool, boat house and workshop.






Mrs Stevens introduced the application.


The following members of the public addressed the Committee:


Mr Timothy Firmston – Parish Council (represented by Elizabeth Hamilton)

Mr Simon Randall – Agent


During the discussion members sought clarification regarding whether the north-facing glazing would have any impact on navigation and how the blinds for the rooflights would be operated.  Mrs Stevens responded that CHC had not made any comments in relation to impact on navigation of the glazing and drew the Committees attention to a condition which required rooflights to have automatic ‘dusk till dawn’ blinds, to be retained and maintained to an operational manner, and that the wording could be adjusted to include storm shutters.  Mr Whitty reminded the Committee that such a requirement would be difficult to enforce.


Members sought further clarification regarding the potential request to use recycled building materials.  Mr Whitty confirmed that this could be explored with applicant and added as an informative.


Recommendation to Permit agreed. 


Rev Bowden left the table for the next item
