19/00021/FUL – THE NEW INN, KIDDEMORE GREEN ROAD, BREWOOD, SOUTH STAFFORDSHIRE ST19 9BH - APPLICANT – MR JOHN DYKE – PARISH – BREWOOD AND COVEN

The Chairman Councillor Mason indicated that documentation around viability of this property as a public house had not been adequately considered and he proposed that consideration of this application be deferred to allow the applicant to demonstrate that he has carried out a proper marketing strategy and sustainability test to determine viability as a public house.

19/00627/COU – LODGE FARM, LODGE LANE, CHESLYN HAY WS11 0LT - APPLICANT – MR NICHOLAS PIPONIDES – PARISH – CHESLYN HAY

Eleanor Lovett spoke in support of the application.

Jon Imber spoke against the application in behalf of a local resident

Councillor Hollis spoke as a ward member; he was concerned the access was dangerous, 7.5 tonne limit for vehicles visiting the site is not enforceable; proposal is within 7m of dwellings; NPPF says development should enhance where people live, this application will not. Suggested the application be refused on the grounds of being contrary to Policy EV9.

Councillor Steel was concerned about the over development of the site, a view shared by several members.

Councillor Allen motioned for refusal of this application as it would have a negative impact on the amenity of residents and was contrary to Planning Core Strategy EQ9.

Councillor L Bates seconded the motion.

RESOLVED: that the application be refused on the following grounds:

1.The proposed use of the buildings for general storage would cause annoyance to nearby residents as a result of noise and disturbance, contrary to Policy EQ 9 of the Local Plan.

19/00634/COU – WOODHALL FARM, WOOD ROAD, CODSALL WOOD WV8 1QR – APPLICANT - MR AND MRS WOODHALL – PARISH - CODSALL

Abi Woodhall spoke in favour of the application.

Councillor M Ewart as a local member supported the application.

RESOLVED: that the application as detailed on the amended plan submitted be approved subject to conditions as set out in the Planning Officer’s report to Committee.

19/00655/FUL – 1 EDGE HILL DRIVE, PERTON, WOLVERHAMPTON, WV6 7SN – APPLICANT – MR ANTONIO DA SILVA – PARISH – PERTON

This application related to retrospective approval to retain a log cabin. 

Councillor Caine spoke as a local member – local residents were concerned about the buildings – should be conditioned to not be able to be sold off separately and PD rights for further buildings should be removed.

Councillor Heseltine commented that it could be seen, but queried if there were sufficient reasons to refuse?

Councillor Mason stated there was no room for further buildings, but there were no neighbour comments and it was located within a walled garden.

Councillor Cope was concerned about over development.

Councillor Lees commented it was difficult to object to the proposal and there was no reason to refuse.

Councillor Spencer commented that neighbour’s amenity should be protected, whether there were any objections or not.

Councillor Steel noted the log cabin was within 1m of the neighbour and moved a motion to refuse on the grounds of over development of the site and impact on neighbours’ amenity, contrary to Policy EQ9.

This was seconded by Councillor Spencer.

Councillor Reade noted it complied with space about dwellings guidelines, so there were no reasons for refusal, and there were many other similar structures closer to the Parkway.

RESOLVED: that the application be refused on the following grounds:

1.  The proposed log cabin represents over development of the site and would be likely to prejudice the amenity of adjoining properties, contrary to Policy EQ9 of the Local Plan.

19/00819/FUL – 5 ORCHARD CLOSE, COVEN, WV9 5AS – APPLICANT – MRS ALICIA PAYTON – PARISH – BREWOOD AND COVEN

Wendy Jones spoke against the application.

Councillor Wendy Sutton spoke on behalf of Councillor Bolton, as a local member. The proposal was unacceptable in terms of the impact on the light of the neighbour, will mean artificial light will need to used on the hall, stairs and landing and the openness of the cul-de-sac will be further reduced.

Councillors noted that other properties in Orchard Close had been extended in a similar way.

RESOLVED: that the application be approved subject to the conditions contained in the Planning Officer’s report to Committee.
