Full Application - Proposed alterations and new awning at Cafe 19 at Spar, Calver Sough, Calver (NP/DDDD1022/1295, WE)


A formal site visit was not held, however some Members viewed the site informally from the bus as it passed the site on the return to base from formal visits.

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


The following spoke under the public participation at meetings scheme:


·         Edward White – Applicant


Members discussed the modern character of the current building and the need to give weight to the economic advantages of the proposed scheme, for the business.  It was also noted that the site was outside the village conservation area at a busy road junction.


Members requested clarification as to what alternative proposals Officers would be likely to find acceptable.  The Planning Officer advised that a retractable awning without posts, or free-standing umbrellas would be preferable.


Members requested that if the application was approved conditions should be added to provide details of disabled access and to prevent the awning being enclosed at the sides.


A motion to approve the application was proposed and seconded and carried.

1.    Standard 3 year commencement period

2.    Colour of posts and awning to be agreed

3.    No enclosure or alteration of the awning to be permitted
