Planning Committee 9/8/2011 | Part 9 | Agenda item 4 – APP/11/00465 – FORMER HEAP AND PARTNERS SITE, LAND OFF NEWTON ROAD, HOYLAKE – Erection of 11 no. Supported Apartments, 2 no. Supported Bungalows and 8 no. Affordable Apartments| APP/11/00724 – 1 – 146 SANDBOURNE, STAVORDALE ROAD, MORETON – New build development of 7 no. two storey houses and 4 no. bungalows

Agenda item 4 was introduced as a mix of care and residential use with bungalows and two storey flats. There was screening for the development which would remove a non conforming use. Cllr Kelly asked about access to the site from two named roads. He said he had looked at it on Google Earth. He mentioned bollards and asked about vehicle access to the proposed site. He said there was no condition to bollard the entry which would need a Traffic Regulation Order to be processed. He asked for a condition to be added. Matthew Rushton said it was not as a specific condition but it would be best as a condition. The Chair said it was appropriate to have a condition regarding details of these facing the South-East. Cllr Kelly asked if this would remove permitted development rights. All councillors voted in favour, including the addition of the extra condition.

Item 6 had an amendment to the conditions. Cllr Mitchell and Johnson proposed. All were in favour.

Item 7 had been withdrawn.

Item 8 was proposed by Cllr Mitchell and Cllr Boult. All were in favour.

Item 9 had been agreed earlier in the meeting for a site visit.

Item 10 was proposed by Cllr Johnson and Cllr Mitchell.

The Chair commented that Cllr Realey had not been as vocal and vociferous as usual.

Item 10 was approved by all councillors.

Item 11 was proposed by Cllr Mitchell and Cllr Johnson and was approved.
Item 12 was proposed by Cllr Mitchell and Cllr Johnson and was approved.

Cllr Johnson asked what “sui generis” meant on page 70 on item 14. Unfortunately the planning officer didn’t turn his microphone on so I didn’t hear the answer.

Cllr Boult said he had a problem and wanted to discuss something in closed session without the press and public present. The Chair said it was unusual but agreed so the rest of the meeting considering any other business was held in closed session.
