4. Reference: 21/01989/REM
Proposal: Application to discharge the matters reserved under Condition 1 of reference: S/2399/19/OL including: Approval of the details of the layout of the site, the scale and appearance of buildings, the means of access and landscaping (this application relates to Plot 1)
26 Wimpole Road Great Eversden Cambridgeshire
The Council voted NO RECOMMENDATION to the application.
In view of the location and scale of the property and the large glazed aspect we request that a planning condition be imposed to protect the public views, wildlife areas and neighbouring properties from light pollution from the development. A lighting scheme should be produced, and approved by the planning officer before implementation, to avoid light spill from inside and outside the property in conformance with all relevant guidelines for glare and wavelength.
Demolition of existing dilapidated dwelling and erection of a sustainable 3-bedroom home.
6 Bucks Lane Little Eversden CB23 1HL
There was disappointment that the plans were for a very modern building and did not replicat the original “cottage style”
In view of the sensitive location of the property, and in order to protect the local wildlife, a condition regarding all exterior lighting should be imposed such that the lighting scheme is approved by the planning officer before implementation to avoid light spill from the property, and all exterior lights should be in conformance
with all relevant guidelines for glare and wavelength.
Due to the large glazed area, consideration should also be given to potential light pollution from interior lighting.
It was also asked that consideration be given to consider the noise from the air source heat pump and take mitigating measures.
The Council felt consideration should be given to moving the gate back from the road so as not to allow vehicles to cause obstruction on the road and preference for a non-solid gate.
The Council resolved to SUPPORT the application.
Attic conversion including new windows to the roof and front & side elevations
5 Wimpole Road Great Eversden CB23 1HR
The Parish Council indicated the plans did not alter the visual impact of the property and resolved to SUPPORT in the majority.
7. Disclosure of the Chair’s letter to Cllr Bridget Smith re EWR. It was agreed to invite Ms Smith to a site visit at Cllr Glasse’s home to view the possible impact of EWR at 6:30 pm before the 14th June Parish Council meeting.
