PRESENT: Cllr Wright, Williams, Rowton-Lee, Haywood, Ashdown, Higgs

Staff: Liz Folley Also Present: D/Cllr White


Apologies for absence: None

Co-option of temporary committee members to be agreed: None

Declarations of Interest – None


Public Question Time – 10 members of the public were present.

3 people spoke about P18/S1674/O – demolition of the kennels. A neighbour expressed his concern with the problems that he had encountered whilst a working kennel was in operation due to the noise, rodents and smells. He had a recording of the noise problem and stated that SODC had issued a noise abatement order. The neighbouring resident welcomed the change of use to residential.

Resident put forward her objection to this application on the grounds of light pollution, level of hedge and that 2 storey properties are an intrusion in an AONB. Concern was also raised with regard to the provision of an information board and bench but not parking to access this facility.

The planning agent for this application spoke briefly about the current design. The hedge would be on a tradition bank to contain gardens. With regard to AONB he believed the development would improve visual impact and the noise level would be reduced. There would be a reduction in car visits to an awkward access from the main road.

3 residents were present to express their concern regarding the sewage pumping station at Mill Lane/Estover Way and the increase in waste that it will be dealing with due to the housing developments. They have regularly had problems with sewage entering their homes and have been told by visiting engineers that the pump is at capacity. They have asked that CPC support the residents to ensure that adequate measures are in place and to find out if 'lock down' pumping facilities are being used at new sites and that times of release are coordinated.

Request that council puts a condition on major applications in residential areas that the reversing bleeps are not used on vehicles.

Concern was raised with regard to the definitive footpath at the development North of Mill Lane it is believed to be blocked.

2 residents were in attendance to request cpc support for appeal - APP/Q3115/W/17/3192374 – P16/S4079/O Land rear of 59-63 Lower Icknield Way
