Item 1 (2019/1082/MAF) The Garden House, Ketton Road, Hambleton, Rutland

 

Demolition of existing dwelling and associated outbuildings. The erection of 1 No. new build private dwelling.

 

(Ward: Hambleton; Parish: Hambleton)

 

Mr Paul Milne, Planning Officer for the Council, addressed the Committee and gave an executive summary of the application, recommending approval.

 

Mr Thain, speaking as the agent on behalf of the applicant, addressed the Committee.

 

During discussion the following points were noted:

                                      

      i.        The purpose of the annex building would be for a housekeeper or guest and would not be an independent residence.

    ii.        The dark nature of the glazing would ensure a low profile, however reflective glazing could be used if required.

   iii.        Materials for the development would be carried on access roads protecting tree lines and would have a low impact on highways.

Item 2 (2020/0380/OUT) Land North of Cold Overton Road, Langham, Rutland

 

Erection of 18 No. dwellings with associated access, highways, open spaces and drainage infrastructure.

 

(Ward: Langham; Parish: Langham)

 

Mr Justin Johnson, Development Manager for the Council, addressed the Committee and gave an executive summary of the application, recommending approval.

 

Mr Oliver Hemsley spoke as ward member.

 

During discussion the following points were noted:

 

      i.        The width of the zebra crossing for the development would be 2.4m wide which is designed to have 600 pedestrians in an hour and would be more than adequate for the development.

    ii.        If a further development arose the crossing then needed to change, the developer would be required to adapt the crossing.

   iii.        Concern was raised with having a junction close to the zebra crossing and the increase of danger this may cause. Mr Mead, Highways Engineer for the Council, state that the queuing distance on Cold Overton Road was 200 metres. It would take 30 cars queuing to cause a disruption. There would be more issue if it was a signal crossing as it would be on a timer. There would be less queuing with a zebra crossing.

   iv.        The detail of the application would be considered by the Committee at a later date, including detail on footpaths from the development.
