There were only two planning applications decided by officers during this period.
The first was for the erection of one non-illuminated fascia sign at Park View Hotel, 426-428 Price Street, Birkenhead, CH41 4JQ. This is for an advertisement consent. However it has been withdrawn by the applicant.
The second is for erection of a rear balcony to a master bedroom at Brailsford, 59 ELEANOR ROAD, BIDSTON, CH43 7QW. This is for full planning application and was approved on 2nd November 2011 with two conditions.
The first condition is that work on it has to be started by 2nd November 2014. The second condition is that details of a 1.7m privacy screen have to be agreed in writing by Wirral Council and the privacy screen has to be erected and maintained.
There is one planning application from Bidston & St. James ward for a first floor fire escape staircase to the rear of 270 Conway Street, Birkenhead, CH41 3JA to be decided by the Planning Committee tonight. The reason for the referral of this to the Planning Committee is that is that a Labour councillor called Cllr Paul Doughty is a partner and architect at SDA Architects and Surveyors who are the agents on this planning application.
Any planning applications that Wirral Council councillors have a close association with get decided by the Planning Committee under existing Wirral Council policies.
