(iii)DC/06/02295/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission

Change of use from residential use to accountant’s office at 20 Church Street, South Cave for Mr T Rackham. Cllr Turner proposed that The Parish Council raises no objections to this application for change of use for the following reasons: 

It is a relocation of a business from Market Place to Church Street, which retains the business within the village; it is a business that not only employs local people, but it also supports local businesses; there are other businesses located close to this property, including immediately adjacent to the property at No. 22, Church Street, and there is also a business opposite, as well as other examples on Church Street; as an accountancy company, this business is usually conducted on a 9-5 basis, and it is a non-intrusive use of a residential property; there will be no further impact of vehicles accessing the property as there is a public car park immediately opposite the location; there is a dearth of suitable office space in South Cave, and one business use has returned to residential use just recently in the immediate vicinity; there would also be no adverse effect on the property, neighbouring properties or the street scene, or the character and appearance of the Conservation Area; the Parish Council feels strongly about this application, and would request that it is put to Committee, seconded Cllr Harrison, All in favour.
