The Council voted unanimously to support the application.

Plough Corner, 3 High Street, Little Eversden
Mr Dinsdale left the meeting. The Chair asked for comments.
The Clerk informed the meeting that a resident contact PCSO James Lynch that morning due to parking concerns.
Mrs Glasse said she was unable to find comparisons to neighbouring properties in terms of elevation heights. Mr Watterson shared his screen showing the elevations and plans, however the height could not be found.
The plans indicate that the new properties would be in line with the existing houses, however the neighbour indicated the houses are further away from the road than the existing properties and this would impact on the light, that has just returned given the felling of the leylandii.
The Council voted, by majority, to Object with the comment that the size was overbearing in height for the neighbours. There were two no recommendation votes and 2 to support. It was agreed to request the condition that if the plans were approved and a restriction should be imposed on construction traffic should not park on High Street.
The meeting was closed at 20:38 pm.
