Minutes of an Extraordinary Meeting of the Parish Council

held on Tuesday 12th October 2021 at 6.00pm

 

Present: Councillors R Fisken (Chairman), A Dick, C Butler and G Light  

In Attendance: P Thompson (Clerk)   

 

1.     Apologies:  Councillors A Keeley and R Butler

 

2.     Declaration of Interests:  None

 

3.     Planning Application:

21/02346/HOUSE - Quicks Green House, Quicks Green: Replacement of existing attached annexe with new single storey extension to accommodate new indoor swimming pool, gym, plant and changing room.

 

It was agreed that an objection should be raised to this application due to the impact that the wide expanse of glass would have on the public right of way in this AONB. It was thought that this would also lead to significant light pollution, not only affecting the footpath, but also those properties opposite, albeit separated by the field.

 

The Clerk was asked to submit the Council's observations to WBC.

 

4.     There being no other business the meeting closed at 6.15pm.

Minutes of an Extraordinary Meeting of the Parish Council

held in the Jubilee Hall on Monday 26th July 2021 at 6.00pm

 

Present: Councillors R Fisken (Chairman), A Dick, C Butler, A Keeley, R Butler and G Light  

 

In attendance: P Thompson (Clerk) and one member of the public  

 

1.   Apologies: None

 

2.   Declaration of Interests: None

 

3.   Planning Applications:

 

21/01645/FULD – Redwood, Burnt Hill: Section 73A application to vary condition 2 (approved plans) of approved planning permission 20/02001.

It was unanimously agreed that the Council objects to this application as it would result in overdevelopment of the site for the following reasons:

The approved plans saw an increase of 100% in the internal area measured against the original property which stood on the site. Whilst the proposals add a further 10% to the allowed internal area, this is effectively a further increase of 25% on the original property.

The proposals bring the development closer to the neighbouring properties reducing the openness of the site. This clearly has an impact on the properties opposite but also spoils the rural character of this part of the ANOB.

The proposed sunlit dining room adds considerable depth to the development and due to the rising ground creates much more of a massing effect when viewed from Thee Oakes.

The fact that condition 23 of the previous planning decision was specifically applied in order to prevent over-development.

Allied to that, the concern that if planning permission is granted for this application it may lead to attempts to increase the property's size even more.

 

21/01678/HOUSE – Lyeview, Holly Lane: Infilling the rear under croft and conversion to the loft.

It was agreed that the Council had no objections to this application although Councillors would have preferred that the rooflights be fitted at the rear of the property.

 

20/01336/OUTMAJ – Institute for Animal Health, Compton: Hybrid application for up to 185 residential units.

It was agreed that the Clerk should ask WBC to consider the highways implications when determining the density of residential units on the site as the most direct route from Compton to Reading takes traffic along the road known as Aldworth Road, Ashampstead. Whilst the road is marked unsuitable for HGV's, in some sections it is single track. In view of traffic implications, the Council thought that it should have been consulted at the appropriate time.

 

The Clerk was asked to submit the observations on all three applications to WBC.
