7. 6/2016/0690 Mr N Rubinstein, Land between 66 & 68 The Spinney, Lytchett Matravers, BH16 6AS. Erect detached garage. The Council wished to register an OBJECTION on the grounds that this proposed development appears not to be associated with any of the nearby domestic properties and therefore does not appear to be justified. As such, this unrelated garage is out of character with the surrounding area and street scene. In view of the above described circumstances, Council members also expressed some concerns about future intentions for this proposed structure.

8. 6/2016/0672 Mr J Field Harbour Lights, Huntick Rd Lytchett Matravers BH16 6BB. Erect detatched garage. NO OBJECTION.

12. MATTERS OF INTEREST. The committee wished to RECOMMEND to Full Council that a letter be sent to PDC to express concerns and seek clarification regarding the evident inefficiencies which have recently appeared in the administrative process for handling planning proposals – specifically: (i) why applicants are experiencing difficulties and extended time periods to obtain pre-application advice and (ii) the notification process for received applications / consultation input is in two steps and quite disjointed.
