Planning & Development



New Applications



19/01541/HSE - 6 Churchlands Bramley

Erection of a first floor side extension over existing garage

The following points were made:

  • The applicant appears to have taken on board comments to previous applications.  This application appears to be a sensible compromise. 
  • The applicant has suggested that there will be no trees within falling distance of the extension – members disagreed with this assessment, particularly noting the Scots Pine.

No objection, but comment as above.  Clerk to process.









T/00273/19/TPO - 12 Anvil Way Bramley 

1 Oak: pruning works as per restorgraph report dated May 2019

Members unanimously agreed that they are happy to refer to the tree officer, but if the oak is replaced then maybe an ash is not the best species. 

Clerk to process.






19/01677/HSE - 8 Meitner Close Bramley

Erection of gazebo

No objection unanimously agreed.  Clerk to process.






19/01676/HSE - Opalham The Street Bramley

  • It was noted that the application should be retrospective as work has already begun. 
  • The application states that businesses did not do well – however, this is contrary to local knowledge – the hairdresser particularly did well.  This was noted in the response to the previous application.
  • Members noted the vagueness of the application form details on sewage and water supply.
  • Members noted that three bedrooms in one of the units could be considered over development – the bedrooms are very small. 

                Unanimous objections to the previous application apply to this                 application as well.  Clerk to process.

                Variation of conditions 1 and 8 and removal of condition 9 of                 permission 14/01458/FUL to allow alternative access arrangements                 with the original southern access re-opened for ingress only and the                 'new' northern access used for egress only

Minchens Lane development

  • A letter has been sent to HCC Highways re the issues with the junction.  Responses have been received, agreeing that the developers are behind on some obligations with the junction.  Various reports are awaited, and HCC did state that if the junction was found to not be working as intended, then they would be requesting the developer review the design.
  • The dead trees have been replaced with new saplings
  • Two of the bollard lights have now been vandalised.  This has been reported, and the developer should be dealing with this in due course.
