The Committee heard representations against the application from Mr Cabrelli and Ms Morgan who were neighbours.
The Committee heard a representation in support of the application from Mr Huntley, the agent.
The Committee discussed imposing a condition of the hours of use in order to mitigate the impact on the highway, but it was noted that it would not be deemed reasonable to impose such a condition. The condition contained within the report which restricted parking permits was seen as an adequate method of preventing street parking. Though the Committee were mindful of the need to reach a decision on the application before them, they were also mindful of the fact that the premises could be converted to B1 use without planning permission. The Committee did not feel that there was a sufficient level of demonstrable harm in the proposal to justify a refusal.
It was RESOLVED:
That the application be APPROVED subject to the conditions and informatives set out in the officer’s report.
