DISCLOSURES OF INTEREST

(Members Code of Conduct - Part 4A of the Constitution)

 

To receive disclosures of interests from Members and co-opted members on matters to be considered at the meeting. The disclosure must include the nature of the interest.

 

An interest must also be disclosed in the meeting when it becomes apparent to the Member during the meeting.

 

Notes:

 

(1)       Members may remain in the meeting and take part fully in discussion and voting unless the interest is a disclosable pecuniary interest or an interest which the Member feels would call into question their compliance with the wider principles set out in the Code of Conduct.  Disclosable pecuniary interests relate to the Member concerned or their spouse/partner.

 

(2)       Members in arrears of Council Tax by more than two months must not vote in decisions on, or which might affect, budget calculations, and must disclose at the meeting that this restriction applies to them.  A failure to comply with these requirements is a criminal offence under section 106 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992.

Minutes:

 

A.    4 Leaventhorpe Avenue, Bradford             Clayton and Fairweather Green

 

This is a householder planning application for a hip to gable extension with front and rear dormer windows plus single storey rear extension (partly retrospective).

 

Officers presented the application and gave an overview of the property’s planning history as previous applications had been refused on the grounds of impact and loss of visual amenity.  The presentation included photographs to show Members the new application which had been amended to overcome the harm to the neighbouring property.  The property itself was a semi-detached bungalow occupying a setback and elevated position from the highway and had already undergone alteration and extension previously.  The application had received 16 objections and 18 supporting comments.  It had been re-publicised following a change in the description of the proposal and the publicity period  was due to end after the date of the meeting.  Members would also receive notification of any additional comments if submitted after the meeting.

 

There were no questions from Members in relation to this application.

 

Resolved –

 

That the decision be delegated to Officers to grant planning permission on expiry of the consultation period.

 

Action: Strategic Director, Place

 

 

B.    43 Acre Drive, Bradford                                                                    Eccleshill

 

Application for a single storey side and rear extension, hip to gable extension with front and rear dormer windows.         

 

The property was a semi-detached bungalow situated in a cul-de-sac and was similar in scale and design as other properties in the vicinity.  The application had been publicised by use of neighbourhood letters and revised plans were submitted following discussions with the Agent to address issues raised.  the Planning Department had received 29 expressions of objection and 6 in support.  Members were provided with a report which gave details of these.

 

Officers presented the details of the scale of the extensions along with illustrations and dimensions to allow Members to visualise the plan.  Members also viewed photos showing the property in relation to its immediate neighbours indicating where and how the extensions would look.

 

Members were then given the opportunity to ask questions directed to Planning Officers, the details of which and the responses given are as below:

 

·         In relation to the side extension, were there any concerns about it changing the character of the street?  Officers responded that it would change the character of the street but was in line with usual policies and was set back.  Further clarification was provided to describe a ‘wrap around’ type extension and that permission was only needed as the plan was for an extension to the property both side and rear and would be joined as one.  Separate side and rear extensions were allowed under permitted development rights but one that effectively ‘wrapped around’ the property needed planning permission

 

·         A member asked whether the objections received had been addressed and was advised that all planning issues had been addressed

 

·         Further clarity was sought around permitted development rights as objections would not be valid if application was allowed under permitted development rights.  Officers advised  ...  view the full minutes text for item 49.
