To sign as a correct record the minutes of the meeting held on 9 March 2022 (copy enclosed). 

Minutes:

Consideration was given to the minutes of the meeting held on 9 March 2022.

 

AGREED:

 

That, subject to the decision being amended at item 71 as outlined below, the minutes be signed as a correct record.

 

‘AGREED:

 

That permission be refused due to the siting and scale of the proposed house on Plot 1 resulting in an overbearing impact upon the adjacent property contrary to Policy 3 of the SELLP.

 

In the opinion of the Local Planning Authority the design, scale and position of the proposed house on plot 1 would, due to loss of daylight and sunlight, have an unacceptable impact upon the adjacent residential property to the west and as such would materially harm the amenity of its occupiers.  The proposal is therefore contrary to Policies 2 and 3 of the South East Lincolnshire Local Plan (2019), which set out residential amenity and the relationship to existing development and land uses as main considerations when making planning decisions. They are consistent with advice within the National Planning Policy Framework (2021). Paragraph 130, amongst other matters, seeks places with a high standard of amenity for existing and future users’

 

3.
