Edited extracts from the draft minutes of Planning Council meeting on 16th July 2018.
SDNP/18/03355/FUL HARDHAM GREEN HOUSE, LONDON ROAD, HARDHAM
Erection of stable building; construction of sand school and provision of hardstanding area. Amendments following refusal of previous application SDNP/17/00717/FUL. The Council recognised that the proposed stable building had been scaled back, following the rejection on appeal of the original plans. It would however still be a large building, in open and undeveloped countryside within the National Park. As
previously anticipated by the Council, business use was also now proposed, though on a small scale. There was doubtless a place for such a development, but not in this setting, where the concerns in paragraph 11 of the appeal decision remained relevant. RESOLVED: To acknowledge the changes made, but to maintain the Council’s objection to the proposals.
P 18 / 09.02 SDNP/18/03606/HOUS 8 BROOKLAND WAY, COLDWALTHAM
Single storey rear extension. It was explained that to allow for the Clerk’s work schedule, the agenda had to be circulated before there had been the opportunity to review the plans for this and the following item. On doing so, it was confirmed that this proposal was a variation on an earlier one which, as already advised, was of insufficient community interest to merit discussion. RESOLVED: To offer no comment on these plans.
SDNP/18/02525/FUL WOODPECKERS, KINGS LANE, COLDWALTHAM
Change of use and conversion of existing barn to holiday let accommodation and demolition of existing outbuildings. As for the previous item, it was explained that in this case the Council had raised no objection to the previous proposal. This revised proposal was intended to meet objections raised by the planning authority and did not require further discussion by the Council. RESOLVED: That the Council had nothing to add to comments on the original plans.
Edited extracts from the drafts minutes of Planning Council meeting held on 2nd July 2018.
Councillors were invited to view the sign that Coldwaltham St James School proposed to install, on the A29 at the end of Church Lane. The School could live with the omission of the two lower panels giving less essential information, if that would make the sign more acceptable. Councillors agreed the school had a low-profile location. The proposal for a sign along the A29 was therefore reasonable. The modification offered by the School was a reasonable response to any objections, while still providing an effective sign.
