Proposed erection of 4 x four bed houses (proposed revision to approved 35 unit housing scheme – HS/FA/15/00039 as amended by HS/FA/16/00223 – to replace 4 x bed units with 4 x four bed units on Plots 19 – 22).
Vacant with residential permission
3 letters of objection received.
Mrs Evans, Planning Services Manager, presented this report for the erection of 4 x four bed houses (proposed revision to approved 35 unit housing scheme – HS/FA/15/00039 as amended by HS/FA/16/00223 – to replace 4 x two bed units with 4 x four bed units on Plots 19 – 22).
Members were advised that at the previous Planning Committee meeting on 19th October 2016, when the application was reported, the verbal presentation was incorrect. Members were advised incorrectly at that meeting that the application was for the addition of one bedroom per property going from 4 x 3 bed houses to 4 x 4 bed houses, therefore a decision could not be issued. Mrs Evans clarified the application was for 4 x 2 bed houses to 4 x 4 bed houses and therefore an increase of two bedrooms per property was proposed. Since the last meeting, officers re-consulted the DVS regarding the viability of the scheme. In his response, the District Valuer concluded that there is no contribution on the basis that the degree with which value of houses rise is not same as the degree to which costs rise to provide that additional space. The Planning Services Manager advised the Local Planning Authority will not seek an affordable housing contribution for this application.
Councillor Cooke proposed a motion to approve the application as set out in the resolution below. This was seconded by Councillor Dowling.
