The Strategic Director, Place, provided a detailed overview of the planning application, showing plans and photographs of the proposal. The Panel was informed that the applicant had departed from the original scheme that was approved in 2019 and 2002.  The alterations to the plans were highlighted in the report.

An objector including Chair of Ilkley Town Council Planning Committee were present at the meeting, and at the request of the Chair, raised a number of points, including:

 

·         the application was retrospective with significant changes to the previously scheme and could set a precedent for building without planning permission;

·         concerns to the ridge height, rear dormer window and the balcony allowing nearby neighbouring properties’ privacy to be invaded;

·         impact on the current surface water drainage to the cul-da-sac;

·         overlooking to adjoining property windows of the bedroom and kitchen from the balcony;

·         there was not a similar design, size or balcony to other properties in the area.

 

The applicant was present at the meeting, and at the request of the Chair, advised the Panel that the original scheme was not fit for purpose to make their home more energy efficient. The applicant acknowledged they should have sought prior approval and did not intentionally mislead anyone. Nonetheless, no changes had been made to the overall height to the ridge and that the approval of the balcony was given in 2019.

 

The Chair moved to the vote on the officer’s recommendation and it was
