Vote

For: 6               Against: 0                    Abstained: 2

Resolved

That planning permission be REFUSED due to the following reasons:  

  1. The proposed development by reason of the siting of the covered barbeque and patio area along the site’s southern boundary would result in unreasonable levels of visual intrusion, overlooking and noise disturbance to the adjacent neighbour at no. 26 Silverthorn Drive to the detriment of their residential amenity and would be contrary to the aims of Policy CS12 of the Dacorum Core Strategy 2013.
  2. By reason of the size and siting of the proposed covered barbeque and patio area extending significantly rearward into the site and along the southern side boundary, the proposal would fail to respect adjoining properties in terms of layout and scale, contrary to Policy CS12 of the Dacorum Core Strategy 2013.

 

Councillor Maddern left the meeting at 7.45pm

Reason:  To comply with the requirements of Section 91 (1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as amended by Section 51 (1) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

Reason:  To ensure a satisfactory appearance to the development.

 

3.   No development, shall take place until a Phase I Report to assess the actual or potential contamination at the site has been submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority. If actual or potential contamination and/or ground gas risks are identified, further investigation shall be carried out and a Phase II report shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority prior to the commencement of the development. If the Phase II report establishes that remediation or protection measures are necessary, a Remediation Statement shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

 

For the purposes of this condition:

 

A Phase I Report consists of a desk study, site walkover, conceptual model and a preliminary risk assessment. The desk study comprises a search of available information and historical maps which can be used to identify the likelihood of contamination. A simple walkover survey of the site is conducted to identify pollution linkages not obvious from desk studies. Using the information gathered, a 'conceptual model' of the site is constructed and a preliminary risk assessment is carried out.

 

A Phase II Report consists of an intrusive site investigation and risk assessment. The report should make recommendations for further investigation and assessment where required.

 

A Remediation Statement details actions to be carried out and timescales so that contamination no longer presents a risk to site users, property, the environment or ecological systems.

 

Reason: To ensure that the issue of contamination is adequately addressed and to ensure a satisfactory development, in accordance with Core Strategy (2013)  ...  view the full minutes text for item 40.

Quarterly Enforcement Performance Report pdf icon PDF 83 KB

Minutes:

P Stanley introduced the item to members and said that he was happy to take questions.

Councillor Birnie asked about the first case on the list. He asked if this had been resolved as it is on-going since 2004.
P Stanley said the persons responsible were prosecuted and given a prison sentence. However, they left the country. They were declared bankrupt and the bank repossessed the house and demolished it. From then until the new owners, the site has been used for fly tipping.

Councillor Matthews asked about progress on 11 Bank Mill.
P Stanley said they have submitted an appeal which must be determined before any further action is taken.

Councillor Birnie referred to the installation of UPVC windows in a listed building owned by the council. He asked if the council would be taking action against themselves.
P Stanley said that the Council could serve the Notice on itself because the Housing Department were looking to sell these properties and any new owners would therefore be notified of the requirement to change the windows.

Proposed changes to the committee pdf icon PDF 69 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor Guest invited members to make comments on the report.

Councillor Birnie believed that the return to three weekly meetings was sufficient to reduce the length and these changes are not needed.

Councillor Matthews said he agreed with Councillor Birnie and had concerns about reducing the time for public speakers.

A Horner informed members that change 1 in the report is not being taken forward as a majority of members did not agree. The questioning of speakers would not be totally abolished but would instead be channelled through the chair.

Councillor Matthews said he did not want to lose the ability to question speakers.

Councillor C Wyatt-Lowe said the responses from the consultation had been collated and democratically arrived at. She said tonight’s meeting had gone smoothly but this is not always the case.

Councillor Birnie said he agreed with not allowing supporters of an application to speak unless an objector was. However, he said there was a perception among residents that the council take more notice of the developers than the objectors. He felt the questioning of officers after their presentation had cut down on repetitive questioning.

Councillor C Wyatt-Lowe said the shorter the meetings, the better the quality of decision making. She said there is no doubt that the quality of decision making deteriorates as the meeting goes on. The public do not appreciate staying until 10pm to hear their application. She said the committee should continue with what was democratically agreed in the consultation.

Councillor Guest asked members to vote on recommending this report to council. It was proposed by Councillor C Wyatt-Lowe and seconded by Councillor Conway to recommend the report to council.

Vote

For: 6               Against: 0                    Abstained: 2

Resolve to recommend:

That the committee recommend to Council the following amendments to the Constitution:

 

  1. If an application is recommended for approval, only objectors can invoke public speaking and then supporters can present their case. Applicants can only invoke speaking rights where the application recommended for refusal.
  2. Reduce Ward Councillors time limit from 10 minutes to five minutes.
  3. Stop the questioning of speakers after their allocated time.
  4. Change the deadline to register to speak from 12 noon on the day of the meeting to 5pm the day before the meeting.
  5. Stop members of the public distributing material at the meeting.

6.    Planning officers must keep their presentations to 5 minutes for major applications and 3 minutes for all other applications.
