Work to Trees in City Council Ownership pdf icon PDF 88 KB

Minutes:

The Arboricultural Officer:

 

a.    advised members of the reasons for proposed works to tree’s in City Council ownership and sought consent to progress the works identified at Appendix A of his report

 

b.    explained that Ward Councillors had been notified of the proposed works

 

c.    stated that in some cases it was not possible to plant a tree in the exact location and in these cases a replacement would be replanted in the vicinity.

 

Members queried why the felling of a monkey puzzle tree in the front garden of 97 Holly Street was not to be replaced with a ‘like for like’ species.

 

The Arboricultural Officer advised that a monkey puzzle tree was not an appropriate replacement species for the area in terms of the local street scene/amenity value, therefore a Maple tree would be replanted in a suitable location.

 

RESOLVED that the works set out in the schedule at Appendix A attached to the report be approved.

Confirmation of Tree Preservation Order 156 pdf icon PDF 7 MB

Minutes:

The Planning Team Leader:

 

  1. advised members of the reasons why a tree preservation order should be confirmed at the following site:

 

  • Tree Preservation Order 156: Group of trees comprising 49 mixed species located adjacent to the car park at the Lincolnshire Poacher, Bunkers Hill, Lincoln

 

  1. provided details of the individual trees to be covered by the order and the contribution they made to the area

 

  1. advised that following the statutory 28 day consultation period, one supporting letter had been received to the making of the order from the occupant of 20 Sympson Close, requesting some changes to the trees included in the tree preservation order in relation to his property; following consideration by the City Arboriculturist the plan had been revised to incorporate some of the suggestions made in that letter amending the number of trees included from 49-47

 

  1. added that 3 additional letters of support had been received from residents of Sympson Close, and no objections

 

  1. reported that confirmation of the tree preservation order here would ensure that the trees could not be removed or worked on without the express permission of the council.

 

RESOLVED that tree preservation order no 156 be confirmed with modifications as shown on the revised plan to include a group of 47 mixed species trees and that delegated authority be granted to the Planning Manager to carry out the requisite procedures for confirmation.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Planning Team Leader:

 

a.    advised that planning permission was sought for conversion of a single storey garage to a 3 bedroom residential dwelling within Use Class 3

 

b.    described the location of the application property located to the west side of Rosebery Avenue

 

c.    stated that the property was located within the West Parade and Brayford No. 6 Conservation Area

 

d.    provided details of the policies pertaining to the application as follows:

 

·         National Planning Policy Framework

·         Central Lincolnshire Local Plan, adopted April 2017

·         Policy LP1 A Presumption in Favour of Sustainable Development

·         Policy LP21 Biodiversity and Geodiversity

·         Policy LP26 Design and Amenity 

 

  1. outlined the responses made to the consultation exercise

 

  1. advised members of the main issues to be considered as part of the application as follows:

 

  • Accordance with national and local planning policy
  • Impact on residential amenity
  • Impact on visual amenity
  • Highway safety, access and parking
  • Communal space, bin storage and other factors
  • Ecology and the protection of habitats and species
  • Other matters

 

  1. concluded that:

 

  • The proposed conversion to a residential dwelling would not have a harmful impact on the amenities of neighbouring properties and would enhance the character and appearance of the conservation area.
  • The application facilitated the conversion of a an existing building into a more sustainable use through the addition of a new dwelling, in accordance with policies LP1 A, LP21 & LP26 of the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan and the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

Mr Richard Mair, local resident, addressed Planning Committee in opposition to the proposed development, covering the following main points:

 

·         He resided at 290 West Parade to the south of the proposed development.

·         He represented all 21 objectors to the proposals, living both north and south of the garage.

·         The developer was trying to squeeze a 3 bedroomed house into an area which was already full to capacity.

·         The Planning Officer seemed to be taking the view that one additional house did not matter, however, it was even more important in a closely knit area and the proposals were not welcomed.

·         The developers came from the London area where tighter relationships between properties would be more acceptable.

·         Following concerns raised, the window to one of the bedrooms had been removed from the plans, leaving a double bedroom with no window at all. The three storey adjacent properties would look down on the garage and roof lights of its bedroom windows and vice-versa they would also be able to see into our property.

·         The roof lights to the north side of the roof would be even closer to the occupant of 1 Rosebery Avenue.

·         Local residents would look down on sixty feet of shiny black roof slates. Planning officers should have insisted on the use of traditional planning materials.

·         The applicant had no right to use the passageway currently located to the side of the proposed development. Residents had confirmed this with the Land Registry. The passageway was for emergencies only such as in the event of fire. Allowing the applicant to use the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Principal Planning Officer:

 

a.    advised that retrospective planning permission was requested for installation of perspex dining igloos on the roof terrace of Tap House Bar and Kitchen, situated at the corner of St. Pauls Lane and Westgate

 

b.    advised that the proposals were to retain two structures described by the applicant as ‘dining igloos’ in a dome format, however, there were two further unauthorised structures that had been erected prior to and alongside these structures, i.e. a building which had the appearance of a shed and a roof-top bar, all three types of structure having a differing appearance

 

c.    clarified that the application building was not listed but located within the Cathedral and City Centre Conservation Area (No.1) and adjacent to the ramparts of the Lincoln Castle, a Grade I Listed Building and Scheduled Monument

 

d.    reported that there was no relevant planning history for the site but it was important to note that the current application was retrospective for the two dome structures shown in the plans attached to this report, moreover, these were erected at different points in time alongside the ‘shed’ structure and external bar, all without planning permission, although only the domes were shown within this application

  • The Principle of the Development;
  • The Impact of the Proposals upon Heritage Assets;
  • Other Matters; and
  • The Planning Balance.

 

  1. concluded that:

 

  • The presumption in favour of sustainable development required by the National Planning Policy Framework would not apply to the proposals as there would be conflict with the three strands of sustainability that would apply to development as set out in the planning balance.
  • Therefore, there would be harm caused by approving the development. As such, it was considered that the application should not benefit from planning permission for the reasons identified in the report and within the officer’s recommendation.

 

Barbara Griffin, representing the Applicant,addressed Planning Committee in support of the proposed development, covering the following main points:

 

·         She spoke on behalf of the owners of 1 St Paul’s Lane

    • Notwithstanding the above, further work was needed to address the following elements of national planning policy;
