Full Application - Conversion of Existing Attached Domestic Garage to Utility and Dining Room at Beggars Rest, Town Lane, Bradwell. (NP/DDD/ 0623/0699, GB)


The report was introduced by the Planning Officer who laid out the reasons for conditional approval.


The Planning Officer explained that although the Bradwell Neighbourhood Plan Policy sort to resist the loss of any off-street parking facilities, the applicant does not use the garage for parking nor did the previous resident. Members noted the existing parking space would be safeguarded by condition and with the availability of roadside parking, this was preferable to the loss of amenity space, roadside walling and hedging if a further space were created in the small front garden.


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




That the application be APPROVED subject to the following conditions:


·         Standard time limit

·         Carry out in accordance with specified approved plans

·         Window opening to match existing in terms of finish and recess from the external walls

·         External driveway parking space to be maintained as an external parking space to Beggars Rest at all times.
