Full Application -Conversion of barn to dwelling to include associated access, parking and landscaping works, Hollowford Lane, Castleton, (NP/HPK/0822/1076, JRS)


The report was presented by the Planning Officer who outlined out the reasons for approval as set out in the report.


The following spoke under the public participation at meetings scheme:


·         Caroline McIntyre- Agent


Members asked if it was possible to condition the development so it remained a permanent dwelling rather than potentially being used as a holiday let in the future.  Officers advised that this was not possible under current policy but the matter was being considered as part of the Local Plan Review.


Members requested that the size of the roof lights be restricted.  The Planning Officer agreed that this could be done via a condition and that further conditions were also required to agree full details of the proposed package treatment plant, the location of any metre boxes, and the retention of the gate posts to the field entrance with the final details of this entrance to be delegated to Officers to agree in consultation with the Chair and Vice Chair, subject to the submission of an amended plan.


A motion to approve the application with an addition to the condition on the roof lights, and additional conditions regarding the package treatment plant, the location of metre boxes, the retention of the gate posts and further details regarding the gate entrance, was proposed, seconded, voted on and carried.
