ASHAMPSTEAD PARISH COUNCIL

 

Minutes of an Extraordinary Meeting of the Parish Council

held in the Jubilee Hall on Wednesday 28 November 2018 at 6.00pm

Present: Councillors T Butcher (Chairman), C Butler, A Dick, R Butler and R Fisken

 

In attendance: P Thompson (Clerk) and five members of the public.

1.     Apologies: Councillor A Keeley

     

2.     Declaration of Interests: None

 

The Chairman adjourned the meeting at this point to hear comments from members of the public after which they chose to leave. 

 

3.     Planning Application:

18/02855/FULD - Demolition of existing house and erection of one new house and garage at Redwood House, Burnt Hill.

It was unanimously agreed that the Council should submit an objection to this application on the following grounds:

The proposed development is too large and its mass will have an overbearing impact on all neighbouring properties.

The numerous windows in both the proposed NW and SE elevations at first floor level will result in an unacceptable loss of privacy to the immediate neighbouring properties.

The ridge is set at an unnecessary high level, although it is noted from the plans that there is a proposed staircase to a third level but no plans as to what will be there. Councillors had been made aware of a very similar property in Whitchurch, near Pangbourne, which has three windows at the third level at the front of the property.

No comment could be made on the proposed garage block as no plans have been provided for that element of the development

The development clearly fails to meet WBC's policy C7 for replacement of existing dwellings in the AONB.

Trees have been removed at the site suggesting that works were already in progress. The tree officer should be asked to investigate. 

The Clerk was asked to pass on these observations to West Berkshire Council.

 

There being no further business the meeting closed at 6.47 p.m.

Minutes of an Extraordinary Meeting of the Parish Council

held in the Jubilee Hall on Monday 30 July 2018 at 7.00pm

 

Present: Councillors T Butcher, C Butler, A Dick, A Keeley, R Butler and R Fisken

 

In attendance: P Thompson (Clerk) and one parishioner

     

1.     Apologies:  None
 

2.     Declaration of Interests: None

 

3.     Planning Applications:
18/01678/FULD - Demolition of existing house and garage. Erection of two new houses at Redwood, Burnt Hill.

It was unanimously agreed that the Council should submit an objection to this application as it was clearly an over-development of the site and out of keeping with the neighbouring properties. The proposed properties were close to the road with limited parking, having regard to their size. The proposed height was also of concern, as was the matter of poor drainage in the area due to the heavy clay soil. The proposal was deemed to be unsuitable to the local environment in what is an extremely rural area of the AONB.

 

18/01820/HOUSE - Front porch extension, single and two storey rear extensions, dormer and roof extension with two roof lights at 4 Stubbles.

It was unanimously agreed that the Council had "no objections" to this proposed development.

 

The Clerk was asked to pass on both these observations to West Berkshire Council.
