Full Application - For the demolition of Hillcroft and a garage. Replacement with a new dwelling and double garage at Hillcroft, Sherwood Road, Tideswell, Buxton (NP/DDD/1021/1064 SPW)


Members had visited the site the previous day.

The Planning Officer informed Members of 2 corrections to the report. 


Paragraph 56 which read we conclude that the proposed development is contrary to the development plan” and should have read “we conclude that the proposed development is in accordance with the development plan”


Paragraph 6, the wording “The materials for the roofs which are indicated on the plans are natural blue slate and standing seam zinc roofs” should remove the words “and standing seam zinc roofs”  as this was a carryover from a previous report.



Cllr K Richardson joined the meeting at 10.15


The Planning Officer then went on to introduce the report setting out the reasons for approval as set out in the report.


The following addressed the Committee under the Public Participation at meetings scheme:

Mr Simon Gedye – Agent

The Planning Officer reported that although there was some concern over the massing of the development, it was considered that the proposed development would be an overall enhancement to the street scene, and provide a significant improvement to what was currently there, and that neither the Highway Authority or the Authority’s Ecologists had raised any objections to the proposal.

Members noted the positive engagement that had taken place between the applicant and Officers since the application was refused in December 2020, in getting an improved scheme together,  to overcome the issues that were raised previously.

Members thanked the Planning Officer and the Architect for the innovative and progressive design and expressed an interest in re-visiting the site once the building had been completed.

A motion to approve the recommendation for approval in accordance with the Officer recommendation was moved, seconded, put to the vote and carried.
