The next item to be considered was item 10 – APP/11/00495 – 133 DIBBINS HEY, SPITAL, CH63 9HE – Proposed garage, lounge and porch extension. The officer introduced is as a resubmission of a previous application that had been refused and had its appeal dismissed. There was a proposed reduction of one metre, but this was not acceptable and it did not meet guidelines as it was contrary to policy HS11. The officers therefore recommended it for approval.
The Chair said the site visit had been beneficial. Cllr Salter said on the site visit, he had seen the size of the extension and understood the reasons. He said it was “well worth going on the site visit” and he had also been shown photographs. The Chair said the site visit had been helpful. Cllr Boult and Cllr Salter recommended it for refusal. All councillors voted to refuse this planning application so it was refused.
The meeting then resumed to the order of the agenda.
