0841107  Planning

(i)DC/07/06413/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission

Erection of a conservatory to the rear at 2 Plantation Drive, South Cave for R W Rutherford. Cllr Turner proposed that the Parish Council make no objection to the application as it has no adverse effect on the property, neighbouring properties or the street scene. However we would suggest two conditions: obscure and non-opening windows to the eastern elevation; and the boundary treatment to the west (St Katherine's Road) to be no less than 1.8m in height, running from the rear boundary to a point in line with the 
front wall seconded Cllr Lenton, All in favour

(ii)DC/07/06345/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission

Erection of two storey extension to side at 31 The Stray, South Cave for Dr Karsai. Cllr Wright proposed that the Parish Council would recommend refusal, as the proposed two storey extension would result in a blank elevation within the proximity of the front elevation of three residential properties to the west and north west, this would result in an undue sense of enclosure, particularly to the front elevation of No. 33 The Stray, it would also contribute to a poorer outlook from that property to the detriment of enjoyment of that property; the proposed extension would, by virtue of its size and architectural detailing, have an adverse effect on the appearance of the existing property, and would appear an incongruous element in the street scene,  seconded Cllr Mrs Barnett, All in favour.

(iii)DC/07/06704/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission

Erection of single storey extension to rear and conversing of existing attached garage to form additional living space (amended scheme of 06/09461/plf) at 44 Castle Rise, South Cave for Mr and Mrs Dimmock.
