Planning, 07/03/11



That the Chairman of the Committee is authorised to sign the Minutes of the Meeting of the Planning Committee held on 08/02/11.



RR/2010/3020/P LWA Bodyshop Ltd, Bridge Garage, The Street, Sedlescombe. Erecting of new light commercial spray booth for the purpose of painting motor vehicles, in a controlled environment and replacing old equipment. RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports a refusal of this application until the noise issue has been properly addressed, after which the application should be reconsidered.



RR/2011/242/P Cartref, The Street, Sedlescombe TN33 0QW. Replace extant planning permission RR/2007/3386/P - erection of a terrace of 3 three bedroom houses and associated parking. Applicant: Hyfield Estates Ltd, Quarry House, 49-53 The Quarries, Boughton Monchelsea, Kent. RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports approval and would like to see this site developed rather than left in the current untidy state.



RR/2011/246/P 32 Park Shaw, Sedlescombe. Proposed first floor extension. Applicant Mr and Mrs J Murray, 32 Park Shaw, Sedlescombe. RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports approval.



RR/2011/254/P Petley House, Marley Lane, Battle. Alterations to existing building including modified internal layout, new mezzanine floor to workshop, blocking in some windows and door openings, forming new window and door openings and new canopy to loading door. Applicant Mr Chris Keith-Lucas, Unit 1 & 2, Coldharbour Farm Estate, Battle Road, Dallington. RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports approval.



RR/2011/310/P Spilstead Farm, Stream Lane, Sedlescombe. Continued use of land as an airstrip without complying with condition 1 (temporary) and condition 2 (personal) on planning permission.

RESOLVED: That the Parish Council supports refusal of the request for removal of the temporary and personal conditions for the following reasons:

  1. Although breaches of the protocol have been recorded throughout the last 25 years, the temporary nature of the permission has kept the situation mainly under control. If a permanent approval of the airstrip was to be granted, what could be done to close it down if many breaches were to occur?
  2. The use of the airstrip by Mr Cole in connection with restoration of historical planes has been tolerated for many years and has been kept at a reasonable level for a long time. However, a different owner might want to run the airstrip more intensively causing aggravation and disturbance over a wide area. With the personal condition for Mr Cole attached, a new owner would need to make his/her own application which could be considered in the light of their individual proposals.
