PRESENT were: Cllrs C Wood, R Carswell, P Webb, J Taylor, D Bevan, and Mr T Watton (Parish Clerk)

1. APOLOGIES: Cllrs A Bush, A Huggins and E Wilson.

2. DECLARATIONS OF PECUNIARY INTEREST: Cllr Webb declared an interest in item 11 below (6/2016/0055) – as he is the applicant and it concerns his property. He confirmed that he would withdraw from the meeting during this item.

Cllrs Bevan, Wood, Carswell and Taylor declared an interest in item 11 under para 13 of the Council’s adopted Code of Conduct (i.e. the need to declare the financial interest of a friend or close associate). These members all submitted applications in writing for a “special dispensation” to discuss this application on the grounds that “the number of members otherwise prohibited from taking part in the meeting would impede the transaction of the business”. These dispensations were duly received and approved by the Parish Clerk.

3. Public participation (standing orders suspended). There were none.

4. Minutes of meeting held on 7th Jan 2016 were unanimously agreed as an accurate record and were signed by the meeting Chairman.

In recognition of the fact that this is too late to be advertised on the agenda for this meeting, the Parish Clerk has agreed with Ms S Leonard, Planning officer at PDC, that this will be scheduled for inclusion on the Full Council meeting on 15th February 2016.

Erect single storey extension to existing care home to provide two new single bedrooms. NO OBJECTION. It was agreed that the Council should submit a letter of support for this application on the grounds that this has no impact on the surrounding environment and provides a valuable additional facility and benefit to the Lytchett Matravers Community. Action: Parish Clerk to prepare the letter accordingly.

9. 6/2016/0010. Dr Sue Warren. 58 The Spinney, Lytchett Matravers, BH16 6AS. Installation of new window on ground floor side elevation. NO OBJECTION in principle. But the Parish Council would like to point out that the submitted sketch shows a door, not a window as described in the application. The Council would therefore expect this to be re-submitted with this error corrected.

10. 6/2016/0042 Mr David Mason. Foxwood, Deans Drove, Lytchett Matravers, BH16 6EQ. Replacement of fence. The Council wishes to register an OBJECTION on the grounds of the dominant effect on the surrounding area of the proposed fence.

Cllr Webb withdrew from the meeting during discussion of this item. NO OBJECTION.

12. CORRESPONDENCE. Revised plans for 6/2015/0755, as referred to in minute 5 above, were received from PDC on 3rd February – i.e. too late to include their consideration in this meeting.

13. MATTERS OF INTEREST. There was none.
