Sarah Sharpe of Tuffley Matters addressed the meeting in opposition to the application.

 

Josh Ashwin, Planning Manager for Persimmon Homes addressed the committee in support of the application.

A Member was pleased to see that the homes fronting Grange Road would have a similar appearance to the existing dwellings.

MrPanou stated that Gloucester City Homes were content that no third-party parking rights existed. He confirmed that access would be maintained to the Church and the Scout hut and noted that the development would secure parking and access in perpetuity.

 

The Vice-Chair questioned whether the turning circle could accommodate a refuse collection vehicle. He was advised that it was a private road and refuse bins would be collected from the end of the road.

 

A Member asked if two parking spaces for each property were deemed necessary and was advised that there was a demand for two spaces for each property and a balance had been achieved.

A Member was advised that there would be no age restrictions on occupancy and it was understood that the applicant intended to use these properties to rehome tenants from under-occupied dwellings.

 

The Chair noted that there was a severe lack of affordable housing in the City and the Scouts and Church would have their access rights formalized. He moved, and the Vice-Chair seconded, that the application be determined in accordance with the officer’s recommendation.
