  The Plans were displayed in the Hall, in paper copy form and by projector.

A full outline of the proposed development was presented and discussed extensively.

The main concerns, of the proposal, from Mr and Mrs Cox were:

a. A very overbearing structure affecting their property.

b. Overlooking windows.

c. Sun reflecting off the stainless steel chimney.

The concerns from Stephen and Jane Spencer were:

a. Very overbearing structure made worse by the natural elevation of the land.

b. Proposed felling of a mature tree would remove a natural privacy barrier.

Laura and Steve Fox-Clipsham gave an overview of their proposal and their desire to have a family home.

The WPC discussed these issues and make the following observations:

 

a. A sun angle survey is carried out by the PCC Planning to determine if the proposed development will exclude sunlight from 16, Old North Rd dwelling

b. Overlooking windows relating to the neighbouring dwellings be obscure glazed

c. A matt finish be applied to the proposed new chimney

d. The PCC Tree Officer be consulted on the mature tree removal

e. A permanent screening barrier be constructed between the development and 12 Old North Road.

Subject to the above observations being addressed by planning conditions, to the satisfaction of the neighbouring properties, the WPC have no objection to this development.
