3.            E/37292 - ERECTION OF A DETACHED GARAGE WITH APEX ROOF AT 125 SARON ROAD, SARON, AMMANFORD, SA18 3LH

 

The Senior Development Management Officer (South) referred to the private site visit undertaken by the Committee earlier that day (minute 3.1 of the Planning Committee meeting held on the 23rd August, 2018 refers) the purpose of which was to enable the Committee to view the site.  He referred, with the aid of powerpoint slides, to the written report of the Head of Planning which provided an appraisal of the site together with a description of the proposed development, a summary of consultation responses received and information relating to local and national policies relevant to the assessment of the application.

 

A representation was received objecting to the application re-iterating the objections detailed within the Head of Planning’s report and referencing the history of the site, overbearing nature of the development, height of the adjacent boundary wall, the raising of the ground level to its current height, positioning of rainwater guttering, cracking of the pathway to the adjoining property and being contrary to Policy GP6 of the Carmarthenshire Local Development Plan due to its impact on the amenity of the adjacent residential property.

 

The applicant and the Senior Development Management Officer (South) responded to the issues raised. With specific regard to the neighbour’s concerns on the height and impact of the boundary wall, the applicant offered to reduce its height by removing two rows of concrete blocks in place of the removal of single row, as previously offered.

 

RESOLVED that Planning Application E/37292 be granted subject to the submission of amended plans detailing the reduction in height of the boundary wall, as offered by the applicant.
