The report of the Chief Planning Officer presents an application for replacement of existing conservatory with single storey rear extension at No. 45 Plane Tree Croft, Alwoodley, Leeds, LS17 8UQ
Cllr Midgley return to the meeting at 14:40 for the consideration of agenda item 8.
The report of the Chief Planning Officer set out an application for replacement of existing conservatory with single storey rear extension at No. 45 Plane Tree Croft, Alwoodley, Leeds, LS17 8UQ
Slides and photographs were shown throughout the presentation.
Members were advised that this application had been brought to Plans Panel due to the applicants being employed within the Development Management Team at Leeds City Council. The Council’s Officer Delegation Scheme (Council (non-executive) functions) sets out that where this is the case an application cannot be determined by the Chief Planning Officer under delegated powers.
The Panel were informed of the following points:
· This is a semi-detached house with an existing conservatory. The application requested the replacement of the existing conservatory with a rear single storey extension, with a parapet roof and slight mono-pitch lean to roof to allow for maintenance of the roof.
· The proposed single storey extension would project 3 metres from the original rear wall of the property, which is the same as the conservatory it would replace. The width will be 3.5 metres and the overall height would be 3.6 metres to the top of the mono-pitch lean to roof and 3.5 metres to the top of the parapet wall. This would be a reduction in height of 0.3 metres compared with the existing conservatory.
· The proposed single storey rear extension would be set 0.2 metres away from the common boundary with No. 47 Plane Tree Croft and would have a distance of 4.1 metres to the common boundary with No. 43 Plane Tree Croft.
· Glazed doors are proposed to the single storey extension which face the North and West elevations.
· No objections have been received from neighbouring properties.
· Materials would be similar to those already used for the property.
· A condition in relation to Permitted Development is in force for the whole estate which is why the application requires permission, otherwise it would be able to be pursued under automatic permitted development rights pertinent to householder extensions.
Members had no questions in relation to this application and could see no issues with the proposed extension.
RESOLVED – To grant permission as requested in the submitted report.
