Planning Committee (Wirral Council) 3rd January 2011 Part 8 APP/11/01279 – 457 Borough Road, Oxton, CH42 0HB & APP/11/01282 – 455 Borough Road, Oxton, CH42 0HB

The Chair said item 13 (APP/11/01279 – 457 Borough Road, Oxton, CH42 0HB – Change of use of the ground floor unit from A1 (retail) to C3 (dwelling houses) to convert the building into two flats with associated alterations to front and rear elevations, including an external staircase to the rear.) and item 14 (APP/11/01282 – 455 Borough Road, Oxton, CH42 0HB – Segregation of existing dwelling in to two flats and erection of an external staircase to the rear.) would be taken together as they were adjacent properties and both submitted by SDA. He said the flats used alley gates and there was no provision for parking.

Matthew said the flats had access to the rear, but they didn’t feel the staircases would block windows. Access via an allley gate would not warrant refusal, as it was a management issue. Residents would be allocated a key, no parking was provided and there was no off street parking. The junctions were well protected by waiting restrictions.

The Chair said it held to have transparency over these two issues. He asked for a proposer and seconder for item 13.

Cllr Peter Johnson proposed approval for item 13, Cllr Dave Mitchell seconded approval for item 13.

There was a vote on item 13.
