Erection of 1no. dwelling and associated carport/garden store following partial demolition of single storey element to front of 98B Tadcaster Road. [Dringhouses and Woodthorpe Ward]
Members considered a full application from Mr Richard Marchant for the erection of a single dwelling and associated carport/garden store following partial demolition of single storey element to the front of 98B Tadcaster Road.
Officers gave a presentation based upon the slides at pages 27-38 of the agenda papers. They then provided an update, reporting:
· an amendment to Condition 2 to include 2 new section drawings, and
· an additional condition (Condition 20) in respect of the ground level.
In response to Members questions, it was confirmed that:
· The passing place referred to in paragraph 5.10 of the report was within the curtilage of the land;
· There was no policy enabling the council to require a Section 106 contribution towards tree planting elsewhere;
· The building would be similar in height to the adjacent bungalow, and have a similar sized garden;
· This application was separate from the outline planning permission previously granted, and not subject to the conditions attached to the outline permission.
Ian Alford spoke in objection to the application on the grounds that a 2-storey dwelling was inappropriate for this location and that the excavation to create a the basement could have an adverse effect on drainage from his property next door. In response to Members’ questions, he confirmed that:
· all the buildings adjacent to the site were bungalows, one with dormer windows, and
· during past flooding events he had experienced puddles of water in his garden but nothing more serious.
Lee Vincent, the Applicant’s Agent spoke in support, stating that all issues raised during the application process had been addressed; the building’s footprint would be similar to neighbouring properties, a drainage design had been agreed with Yorkshire Water, and all spoil would be removed from the site to ensure existing site levels were maintained.
In response to further questions from Members, officers confirmed that:
· they did not consider the building to be overbearing;
· the excavation would have no effect on the water table; the ground was pure clay.
After debate, Cllr Crawshaw moved, and Cllr Webb seconded, that the application be approved subject to the conditions listed in the report and the amended and additional conditions reported at the meeting. A named vote was taken, and all Members voted in favour of this proposal.
Resolved: That the application be approved, subject to the conditions listed in the report and the following amended / additional conditions:
