Planning:
o
10/00873/NONMAT – Rivermead, Bridge End, Wansford
Non-Material amendment to planning application 09/00543/FUL – Replace glazed screen with railings to the veranda, positioning of 2 no. stone pillars, reposition chimney, reduction in size of south facing window and reposition French windows and windows to the south elevation – these are minor amendments which have already been done. Wansford Parish Council objects to being informed in such a way and so late after the event. Express our dismay that the planning had been circumvented in such a way. This is not a ‘non material’ amendment, these are alterations and additions to the original plan.
o
10/01456/FUL – Consultation on Planning Application (Full) Rivermead,
Bridge End, Wansford – Retrospective permission for construction of orangery, piers and entrance gates, increase in height of retaining walls and railings to walls – these are details to the construction which appeared during the build and were highlighted to PCC. Enforcement action was threatened if plans were not submitted by RPS Construction. Mr Alan Jones offered the Parish Councillors some information on the history of the construction on the site. The original house was built in 1980 and was controversial at the time. Alan moved there with his family in 1983 and then built two new houses in 2007. He sold Rivermead to Mr and Mrs Wright in 2008, but retained ownership of the access. He was pleased that they wanted to re roof and reface the house which enhances the whole area, he was also pleased that the correct material has been used but is amazed that the sae planning department with which he had had such issues with whilst building the two new properties has allowed Mr Wright to add things ad hoc. On tope of this Alan has been blamed by a number of residents for the developments. Issues – having endured two years of construction, the last thing he wants is for the whole thing to start again and PCC has no track record in pursuing those who have strayed.
