1. TO RECEIVE APOLOGIES AND REASONS FOR ABSENCE
Apologies were received from Councillors Mrs Best, Mrs Howell and Mrs Myers.
2. DECLARATIONS OF INTERESTS
3. PUBLIC FORUM
Mrs Park is a neighbour of the applicant. She is concerned that a 2 storey extension over the garage would overlook her property, especially if the windows are on the south side. The applicant has not approached Mrs Park for her views.
4. TO CONSIDER LICENCE AND PLANNING APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS.
The following applications were received and comments made:
• WD/2012/0636/F – Estate Yard Cottage, Eridge Road, Tunbridge Wells TN3 9JR
Proposed replacement double garage including ground floor log/garden store and first floor home office/playroom.
The Parish Council object to this application on grounds of overdevelopment. The window of the second storey to the garage is intrusive, overlooking the neighbour’s property. The Council are unsure of the need for a shower in an office/playroom.
Should permission be granted, Frant Parish Council would ask for a Section 106 Agreement to attach the garage to the house should the property be sold.
5. TO NOTE APPLICATIONS GRANTED, REFUSED AND WITHDRAWN BY DISTRICT COUNCIL
6. ANY OTHER BUSINESS
There being no other business the meeting closed at 7:55pm
