Planning Applications

Parish Council Meeting - 10th December 2019

The following planning applications were considered at this meeting

    1. Ref.No: 19/01773/VAC (DEL/NR) - Variation of Condition 9 (restriction of residential curtilage) of13/00484/ETF Hebe House, The Lea, Main Street - The application seeks a variation in one of the conditions (Condition 9) imposed when planning permission for this site was originally granted (05/00015/FUL); this condition restricts the extent of the residential curtilage of the property in question (Hebe House) to designated limits both to the north and the south of the dwelling. This restriction gives some safeguard to the overall appearance of the development and more specifically to the area of Important Open Land that now comprises part of the garden of the property. In the permission, reference is also made to "compliance with Policy HS/9 of the Harborough District Local Plan". The application seeks the removal of the restriction to the residential curtilage to the north of the dwelling but gives no objective reasons as to why this is required. The Council took the view that it is very important to safeguard the appearance of this part of the village particularly the open vistas across green spaces. It did not support any variation of the residential curtilage conditions previously imposed.
    2. Ref. No: 19/01778/FUL (DEL/NWH) - Egerton Cottage, Back Lane -

Burton Overy Parish Council discussed this application at the full council meeting on 10th December and supports and welcomes the renovation of Egerton Cottage, a very old, important, element of the street scene on Back Lane and which enhances the conservation status of our village.

However, Burton Overy Parish Council notes the concerns of neighbouring residents about loss of privacy and light, and also notes the apparent willingness of the homeowner to seek to compromise on his plans to accommodate his neighbours.

Burton Overy Parish Council would urge HDC and the homeowner to collaborate fully to find a compromise that ensures neighbouring properties concerns are considered, but which ensures Egerton Cottage is made habitable and retained going forwards.

3. Ref. No:19/01843/TCA - 5 Baileys Lane - No comment was made
