Application No. 22/01032/FUL - Abbey Glen,10 Carley Drive, Sheffield, S20 8NQ



A report correction and an amended condition were included within the supplementary report circulated and summarised at the meeting.



The Officer presented the report which gave details of the application and highlighted the history of the site and the key issues in addition to presenting photographs of the site which were provided to committee members in advance of the meeting.



Sean Corey, Dawn Groundwell, Mike Peat, Sean Frost and Councillor Tony Downing attended the meeting and spoke against the application.



Ben West and David Knights attended the meeting and spoke in support of the application.



The Committee considered the report and recommendation having regard to the development plan, the National Planning Policy Framework and other relevant considerations as summarised in the report and supplementary report, now submitted and also had regard to representations made during the meeting.



A discussion took place as to whether deliveries included unloading of lorries.  It was moved and seconded that the amended condition 3 be further amended to:


Deliveries (which by definition includes unloading) shall only take place during the following times:


Between 0800 hours and 1800 hours, Mondays to Fridays;

Between 0800 hours and 1300 hours on Saturdays;

Between 1000 hours and 1600 hours on Public Holidays (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day)

There will be no deliveries on Sundays


Reason: In the interests of the amenities of occupiers of adjoining property.


On being put to the vote, the amendment was passed.



Various members voiced their concerns about the impact on the residents and it being in their view an unacceptable impact on their amenity.  The vote in favour of the officer’s recommendation to grant the application was lost and members further articulated their potential reasons for refusing the application and after taking advice from the planning officer in that regard.



RESOLVED: That an application for planning permission for amendments to delivery hours to between 0800 hours and 1800 hours Mondays to Fridays and between 0800 hours and 1300 hours on Saturdays, no deliveries on Sundays and between 1000 hours and 1600 hours on Public Holidays (with no deliveries on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day) (Application under Section 73 to vary condition no. 3 (delivery hours) as imposed by planning permission 02/03682/FUL, Erection of unit for Class B1 (Business) use with ancillary offices and provision of car parking accommodation (Amended as per plans received on 12 February 2003)) AMENDED DESCRIPTION at Abbey Glen, 10 Carley Drive, Sheffield, S20 8NQ (Application No. 22/01032/FUL) be REFUSED, as the Committee considered that the proposal would result in unacceptable cumulative noise and disturbance to neighbouring properties, resulting in a harmful impact to living conditions.
