It was noted that:

1 With reference to the emerging Development Management Policy SD31: Extensions to existing dwellings, and provision of annexes and outbuildings, it is unclear from the documents whether the proposal does or does not increase the floorspace of the existing dwelling by more than 30%.

2 The Community Infrastructure Levy form is incomplete.

3 The original approval of 2nd May 2018 SDNP/18/01201/HOUS the existing garage has been demolished to ensure that development does not spread excessively across the site, which would be harmful to the appearance and character of the site and area. Concern was raised at our meeting that these additions may contravene the spirit of Item 4 of the approval 2nd May 2018.

The resulting vote was one negative and three neutral. The meeting closed at 8.41 pm.
