Planning Matters in Jan 2013

posted 3 Feb 2013, 06:22 by Unknown user
There's always something on the agenda for planning and licencing issues, and the Residents' Association has recently been working on the following cases:

Address: 60 Highfield Way Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
Application  No:12/2125/FUL:
Side and rear extensions and first floor extension to create two storey, five bedroom house with accommodation in roof space served by rear dormer window and front roof lights, new front porch and alterations to fenestration. The proposed design already reduced in size, the carport has been removed, the side extension has been reduced in size but this will still be a major intrusion to Mr Bamford’s Property. we have asked Chorleywood Parish Council to support the resident's objection with reference to bulk, heights, mass, over development etc. on plot.

Address: Beechcroft Cottage, Chalfont Lane, Chorleywood
Application No: 12/2184/FUL
Demolition of small cottage where occupant has passed away. New owner has put in an application which moves the existing footprint of the house 26 meters over to the right hand side of the plot and now 1.8 meters away from the neighbouring house with 13 large windows overlooking them. The development is large and they have planned a heat source pump right next to the neighbour. I suggested the resident speaks at the Chorleywood Parish Council also as they would have had no objections to it, due to the time delay in the District Council putting up the plans on the planning portal but closing the public consult date 1 week after publication! Chorelywood Parish Council will call it in and so we have a lot of support for this resident as has Chris Haywood.
Licensing Application at North Hill Farm, Ref: TQ0397NW
Application was for Live/Recorded Music, Performance of dance & anything of a similar description indoors and outdoors Friday - Sunday 12.00 - 00.30hrs.
The provision of a late night refreshment licence and the supply of alcohol for consumption on the premise. Monday to Sunday from 1200-00.30hrs
Premise opening times to be Monday – Sunday from 12.00-01.00hrs.
This licence would potentially cause a number of disturbances to the local residents along on Chenies Road and residents in Marlin Close who back on to North Hill Farm. There is a possibility of anti-social behaviour in a residential area including violation of resident’s premises. Increased traffic volume at different hours of the day & night and access to the site is via North Hill which is a narrow one track road which could cause traffic congestion.
