The Chair and Vice Chair of the Committee had visited the site the previous day.
The Planning Officer introduced the report setting out the reasons for approval as set out in the report.
The following made representations to the committee under the public participation at meetings scheme:

Members asked the Planning Officer to clarify the policy position regarding potential loss of sunlight to the neighbouring property. The Planning Officer confirmed that the Authority’s guidance on this takes into account a number of factors. In this case the relevant factors were the removal of the large tree from the site, the presence of existing features between the neighbouring and proposed property, and the proposed layout and orientation of the development. Having considered these factors, it was not possible to substantiate a reason for refusal based on amenity impact on the neighbouring property.
A motion to approve the application in accordance with Officer recommendation was moved and seconded.
The Head of Planning was asked to clarify whether approval of this application could be in conflict with the emerging Bakewell Neighbourhood Plan. He confirmed that it would not, as the plan had not been adopted yet and if/ when it was it would be considered alongside other policies.
A motion for approval in accordance with Officer recommendation was put to the vote and carried.
Cllr Chapman had left the meeting during consideration of this item so abstained from voting.
