3.            PUBLIC FORUM

None.

4.            TO CONSIDER LICENCE AND PLANNING APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS.

The following applications were received and comments made:

  • WD/2011/0842/F – 6 Sellbourne Park, Frant TN3 9DG

Proposed single storey rear extensions and pergola.

The Council have no objection.

  • WD/2011/0715/F – Ferndale, Mayfield Road, Frant, TN3 9HT

Two storey side extension to provide annexe.  Living room, study, 2 bedrooms and common bathroom.

The Council express concern about vehicular access as this dwelling is located on a notoriously dangerous corner with numerous accidents.  The property is also by Nap Wood which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, owned by the National Trust.

Should this application be granted we would request a condition be added preventing the annexe to be sold separate from the main property.

  • WD/2011/0704/LDE – Land to rear of 6 Little Bayham Cottages, Little Bayham, Lamberhurst, TN3 8BD

Use of land for residential purposes.

The Council object to this application.

The Council does not object to using the land for car parking.  However, we object to concreting over agricultural land and believe this application will set a bad precedent in the local area.
