1656 Current Plans to consider
The following 2 items were moved forward on the agenda and discussed first. The meeting
was closed at 7.15pm for members of the public to address the Council with objections. The
meeting reconvened at 7.20pm.
(i)DC/09/03926/PLF/WESTES Full Planning Permission
Erection of 1 no. dwelling at Land Rear of 62 Beverley Road, South Cave for Mrs E. Christmas.
Cllr Marsh proposed that the Parish Council recommend refusal of this application due to massing and dominance of this large proposal, which would be out of character and have a detrimental effect on the surrounding properties. Concerns are raised regarding the access. The Parish Council understand that this road already has limited access and with five properties already accessing this private road and planning permission already granted for a sixth, then to add a seventh property (with a three car garage), together with proposed access for number 62 to join the road would make this not only difficult, exceed the permitted traffic levels using the road, it would make this road dangerous, Seconded Cllr Kelly, All in favour.
The meeting was closed at 7.25pm for members of the public to address the council with objections against the following application. The meeting reconvened at 7.30pm.
(ii)DC/09/04243/PLF/WESTES Full Planning Permission
Erection of 3 no. detached dwellings at Land South of 38 West End, South Cave for Historic Restoration Ltd.
Cllr M Turner proposed that the Parish Council recommend refusal of this application due to overdevelopment, massing and dominance, and loss of privacy to properties in West Hall Garth. The removal of the green soak away land would result in the increase of surface water being run off into the beck to the south of the development which is not shown on any of the plans and is already a known notorious area for flooding for properties in West Hall Garth. The Parish Council feel that vehicle access to the development is too narrow and not acceptable for the application. The width of access between the brick walls at the entrance to the development will be a risk to parked cars and pedestrians, particularly customers who use the shop and park outside next to the entrance, and for access onto and from the public highway in West End. All vehicles entering the site should be able to turn so that they may enter and leave the site in forward gear, Seconded Cllr Kelly, All in favour.
1657 Trees - Decisions
(i)App No. STA.6738 (s211) prune trees at 7 Church Street, South Cave permission granted.
(ii)App No. STA.6660 (s211) prune a tree at 4 Appleton Gardens, South Cave permission granted.
(iii)App No. STA.6680 (s211) fell and prune trees at 40 Church Street, South Cave permission granted.
(iv)App No. STA.6698 prune trees at 24 Wesley Close, South Cave permission granted with conditions.
(v)App No. STA.6711 remove and prune trees at 26 Wesley Close, South Cave permission granted with conditions.
(vi)App No. STA.6589 To note dangerous tree decision on tree at rear of 13 Station Road, South Cave.
(i) App No. STA.6778 - prune trees at South Cave Bowls Club, Church Street, South
Cave Protected by the Tree Preservation (South Cave Village) 1971 Order.
Cllr Marsh proposed that the Parish Council raise no objection to the pruning of branches on the
Beech trees which are overhanging the Club House, Seconded Cllr M Turner, All in favour.
(ii)Application No. STA.6781 - fell Trees at 64 Church Street, South Cave within the South
Cave Conservation Area.
Cllr M Turner proposed that the Parish Council raise no objection to the removal of the two
conifers and noted that they are to be replaced with smaller varieties, Seconded Cllr Marsh, All
(iii)Application No. STA.6782 - prune trees at The Dower House, Station Road, South Cave
Protected by the Tree Preservation (South Cave No 27) 2002 Order.
Cllr Harrison proposed that as the Sycamore trees are subject to a Tree Preservation Order and
are in the Conservation Area and the fact that the trees in question do not belong to the
applicant, but are overhanging from the neighbouring property and that no application has been
received from The Dower House, would question if this application is correct. The Parish
Council would like to refer this application to the East Riding Tree Officer for his professional
decision in allowing the proposed work, Seconded Cllr Marsh, All in favour.
This item was moved forward on the agenda and the meeting was closed at 7.40pm for
members of the public to address the Council with objections against the following
application. The meeting reconvened at 7.45pm.
Cllr Marsh proposed that South Cave Parish Council strongly urge East Riding Council to reject
this application. The tree concerned is an arboreal specimen and a prominent feature of this
section of Beverley Road. Our own observations and those of the owners of adjoining
properties dispute and refute the applicants claims as to the condition of the tree and can see no
reason for the tree to be removed. We should point out that the tree is the subject of a
Preservation Order granted in 2005, directly as the result of unsuccessful planning applications
made by the applicant as owner of the property concerned. The Parish Council is very
concerned by this application and earnestly request it be referred to committee rather than be left
to the tree officers discretion. The Parish Council would strongly request that if a decision is
made for this tree to be felled, that a replacement tree of the same species be planted in the same
site, Seconded Cllr M Turner, All in favour.
