|S/2512/15/FLAmended Site, Floor and Elevation Plans
Proposed erection of live/work unit with associated parking and landscaping including demolition of 7 silos, Land East of 12 Church Lane, Little Eversden, Cambs, CB23 1HQ
The Chair shared the original plans as well as the amended plans and read the original comments. The Council agreed that it supported all the original comments.
The Council objected in principle because the revised plans do nothing to address the issues originally raised. Indeed the revised linear development alongside the access road towards the church will in our view exacerbate the traffic problems.
The area is currently entirely residential with a 90° bend. Extra vehicular traffic as a result of the work unit and the 2 adjacent parking spaces will leave no room for visitor parking to Nos 10 & 12. Furthermore the plans will restrict the turning of larger vehicles such as the weekly refuse collection lorries and make the road dangerous.
The Parish Council believe the build site is outside the SCDC Village Envelope for Little Eversden in the SCDC development plan.
The Council are disappointed that our suggestion of retaining the wall along the western edge of the site, and building along the eastern edge has been ignored in this version. In our view building the dwelling to the East would allow clearer sight of the Church from the South, and together with the retention of the West boundary wall, give improved access to existing dwellings 10 and 12.
It was resolved to “Refuse” the plans with the above comments.
Appeal to Secretary of State against the decision to refuse planning for new two bedroom single storey dwelling, Rear of 11 Finch’s Field, Little Eversden, Cambs, CB23 1HQ
The Clerk would recirculate the comments submitted on the original application.
Mrs Handley proposed that we strongly support our previous “refuse” objections. Mr Dalton seconded this proposal and the Council voted unanimously in favour of this action.
