Proposal: Erection of dwelling
Site address: Land Between 2 And 4 High Street Great Eversden
The applicant had purchased the land over 2 years and had been through 2 rounds with a the Council Design Enabling panel. The main differences between the previous plans showed the garage at the front close to the road which has been moved back so as not to detract from the Grade II listed white building next door. Mr Dinsdale asked if the hedge would be retained at the front, Mr Wells said a hedge or picket fence would be retained, although they were quite relaxed about this. was asked if there would be a detrimental impact in the back garden of the White House next door, although it appeared quite secluded due to established hedging and trees. The Council asked how many trees would be removed and clarified it was a private field at the back with a public footpath running through it. The applicant implied there were no further trees to be removed. It was set back so that it would not impact on the street scene with light pollution.
The Clerk gave the notified neighbours list for the Council’s information.
Mr Dinsdale proposed to SUPPORT the application and would like to retain as much as possible of the hedge at the front of the property and the Council would prefer to see a five-bar gate as opposed to a closed gate. The Council voted unanimously in favour of SUPPORT.
Mr Watterson was readmitted to the meeting,
