· P/HOU/2023/04381 Monks Hill Flowers Drove Lytchett Matravers Poole BH16 6BX. Erect a single storey extension and form pitched roof to existing garage.


· P/PAAC/2023/04617 Land off Eddy Green Road Lytchett Matravers BH16 6HL. Convert existing agricultural barn to a 2no bedroom residential dwelling

“The Parish Council OBJECTS to this application for the following reasons;

(i) The works proposed exceed those allowed under Class Q of the Town & Country (General Permitted Development Order) (England) 2015 as they amount to a demolition and rebuild rather than conversion of the existing building.

(ii) The footprint of the proposed building is larger than that of the existing structure.

(iii) Since the proposal does not conform to Class Q requirements, it is inappropriate development in the Green Belt.

The Parish Council reserves the right to add comments if and when any further information is added to this application”

· P/HOU/2023/04414 Willowbank Eldons Drove Lytchett Matravers BH16 6HH. Retain air source heat pump on the north west elevation.

“The Parish Council wish to register an OBJECTION to this application. The Council noted that the developer had mounted a heat pump on the gable facing and blowing straight onto the neighbouring property. These works were carried out without authorisation in contravention of Condition 2 on the original Planning Permission (6/2021/0038) – namely the mounting of an air source heat pump high on the gable facing the neighbouring property. This had not been included on the approved plans.

In the Parish Council’s view the positioning of the wall mounted heat pump is damaging to the amenity of the neighbouring property due to its visual intrusion, and particularly by virtue of noise.”
