In addition, Members and co-opted Members are reminded that unless their disclosable pecuniary interest is registered on the register of interests or is the subject of a pending notification to the Monitoring Officer, they are required to disclose those disclosable pecuniary interests at the meeting.

Erection of a single storey outbuilding in the rear garden (Retrospective).

 

Ward: Addiscombe West

 

The officers presented details of the planning application.

 

The Committee noted that this item should have been withdrawn from the agenda for officers to determine under delegated authority due to the absence of the referring Ward Councillor. Having discussed the matter, the Committee agreed that as the presentation had been heard and there were objectors in attendance to speak, for the Chair to use his discretion to allow this application to be heard on this occasion. This should not be seen as a precedent.

 

Mr Nicholas Burrow and Mrs Christine Conibeere spoke against the application.

 

The Committee deliberated on the application presentation having heard all the speakers who addressed the Committee, and in turn addressed their view on the matter.

 

The substantive motion to APPROVE the application based on the officer’s recommendation was taken to the vote having been proposed by Councillor Scott with a condition that the timescale for the rendering to the rear to be done within 3 months, acknowledging this required the neighbour to allow access into their garden. This was seconded by Councillor Letts.

 

The substantive motion was carried with three Members voting in favour and two Members voting against.

 

The Committee therefore RESOLVED to GRANT the application for the development of 12 Brickwood Road, Croydon CR0 6UL.
