5301010    Planning – Current Plans to consider

                  (i)DC/10/04136/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission

                  Change of use from office (B1) to hot food take away (A5) at 54 West End, South

                  Cave for Mr S Tahseen.

                  Cllr Harrison proposed that the Parish Council recommend refusal of this application

      as the proposed use as a hot food takeaway will cause problems of smell nuisance

      from cooking to the immediate neighbours and neighbours in the vicinity of the site.

      It will also cause problems of noise nuisance and disturbance due to the proposed

      hours of opening and customers visiting the premises late at night, vehicles arriving

      and departing, car doors banging, and traffic problems near the Water

      Lane junction together with unsatisfactory provision for customer and delivery

      parking.  It will also have an adverse effect on the character of this conservation area.

      A previous application for a hot food takeaway at this location was refused

      in 2004 and as circumstances have not changed, this application is still contrary to

      Policies S9 and S14 of the saved/extended Beverley Borough Policies, Seconded Cllr

      L Turner, All in favour. 

                  (ii)DC/10/04004/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission

                  Erection of conservatory to side at 43 West End, South Cave for Mr T Storey.

                  Cllr Munby proposed that the Parish Council raise no objection to the proposal as it

      has no adverse effect on the property, neighbouring properties or the street scene and

      conservation area. The Parish Council would like to recommend a condition that the

      floor level in the conservatory is no less than in the dwelling due to the flood risk area

      of this property, Seconded Cllr Barnett, All in favour.

                 (i)App No: 10/50227/TPO – removal of Scotts Pine, at Netherwolds, Brough Road,

                 South Cave.

                 Cllr Wright proposed that as our Tree Warden was unable to obtain permission to look

                 Council would like to point out that this tree is considered an important visual tree to

                 the village and if ERYC are mindful to approve the removal, then a replacement

                 should be planted, Seconded Cllr Lenton, Vote 8 for, 1 against.
