Councillor L Bates as local member was opposed to the application as he felt it was not in accordance with the Council’s core policy relating to space between dwellings and was in contravention of EQ9 and EQ11 by impacting on the neighbouring property’s amenity and not in keeping with the local street scene.

The Lead Planning Manager said that the recommended standards governing space around dwellings referred to front and rear distances but this was a side wall and so the recommendations did not apply.

The Planning Solicitor said that the ‘right to light’ was a matter of common law and not planning law and as such was a private matter which did not affect the planning application.

Councillor Bates proposed a motion to refuse the application as it was not in accord with the Council’s core policy relating to space between dwellings and was in contravention of EQ9 and EQ11.

Councillor Ford seconded the motion.

The motion was defeated.

RESOLVED: that the application be APPROVED subject to the conditions contained in the Planning Officer's Report.
