Enforcement Of Planning Control: 20 Hallamgate Road

Report of Director of Regeneration & Development Services

Minutes:

10.1

The Director of Regeneration and Development Services submitted a report on his investigation into a complaint received concerning a breach of planning control in respect of quadruple garages at 20 Hallamgate Road not being built in accordance with the approved plans.  The report stated that planning permission related to a single-storey rear extension to a dwellinghouse and erection of new quadruple garages and re-roofing of an existing house (Case No. 13/02297/FUL).  An investigation of the failure to comply with the approved plans found that the eaves of the garage had been increased by 0.30 metres.

 

 

10.2

An assessment of the breach of control found that it had not compromised the design of the garage building or that it would be out of character within the conservation area.  Also, due to the garage being sited next to an access road, the increase in the eaves height did not result in any significant overshadowing of the neighbouring property with regard their amenity space and property windows.

 

 

10.3

The Director of Regeneration and Development Services reported on additional representations received from Broomhill Action and Neighbourhood Group in respect of concerns over the planning history of the site and requesting enforcement action to be taken in respect of the breach of the planning control, as detailed in a supplementary report circulated at the meeting.

 

 

10.4

The Committee also heard a representation at the meeting from an adjacent resident objecting to the increase in the eaves height of the garage by 300mm, as it was not in accordance with the approved plan and asking that enforcement action be taken in respect of the breach of planning control.  In response, the Director of Regeneration and Development Services explained that although the eaves height of the garage had been increased by 300mm, when seen in context of the possible impact on neighbours and the Conservation Area, in view of the distance, the increased height was considered not to be sufficient enough to recommend taking enforcement action on this occasion.

 

 

10.5

RESOLVED: That, as detailed in the report now submitted, no further action be taken with regard to the breach of planning control concerning planning permission Case No. 13/02297/FUL in respect of the eaves height of the quadruple garage at 20 Hallamgate Road.
