Cllr Wood handed out copies of the checklist of “Material Planning Considerations” she had prepared. Members were asked to take this away for consideration in preparation of a discussion at the next meeting of this committee.

6. 6/2016/0345 Mr Martyn Banyard. Highlea, Eldons Drove, Lytchett Matravers BH16 6. Demolish existing house and erect 2 new dwellings. The Council wished to record an OBJECTION to this proposal on the following grounds:

– It conflicts with the intentions expressed within the emerging Lytchett Matravers Neighbourhood Plan in that: (i) the use of the plot and design of the proposed buildings are not in keeping with the character of the surrounding area either with regard to appearance, positioning on the plot, or development density; and (ii) there is insufficient parking provided – in that the Neighbourhood plan requires a minimum of 2 off road spaces per dwelling.

– The proposed dwellings are forward of the building line on the rest of Eldons Drove.

– With further regard to parking and access difficulties, it is noted that this proposed development is located at a very narrow point in Eldons Drove.

7. 6/2016/0351 Mr Andrew Pharoah. Flowers Farm / Warmwell, Flowers Drove, Lytchett Matravers, Poole, Dorset. BH16 6BX. Erect a permanent gazebo in vineyard. NO OBECTION.
