Minutes:

*The Committee considered the under-mentioned applications in light of reports by the Development Management and Conservation Manager and resolved as follows:-

 

CHE/19/00600/RET - RETENTION OF COVERED STORAGE AREA TO THE REAR AND SIDE OF THE PREMISES AND CHANGE OF USE FROM LIGHT INDUSTRIAL USE (B1 CLASS) TO A SHOP (A1 CLASS) AT 1 WHARF LANE, STAVELEY, CHESTERFIELD

In accordance with Minute No. 299 (2001/2002) Mrs Wallhead (objector), Mr Paul Jacobs (objector) and Mr Khan (applicant) addressed the meeting.

 

That the officer recommendation be upheld and the application be refused for the following reasons:-

 

1.  The constraints of the site and the addition of the rear extension result in no parking for vehicles on site with very limited parking for staff and customers either on site or in the immediate vicinity. The area is characterised by terraced dwellings which depend on the street for parking.  As a result staff, deliveries and customers to the site are forced to park on the surrounding highway including on the pavement, at a location which has double yellow lines in place to prevent parking and to protect the visibility of road users in the area. The extension intensifies the business activity at the site, where there is already a deficiency in available parking, and therefore leads to a proliferation of inappropriate parking and highway obstruction that is against the best interests of highway safety. In this context it is considered that the development is contrary to policies CS2, CS18 and CS20 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031 and the wider provisions of the NPPF.    

 

2.  The rear extension is considered to have an unsympathetic relationship with the existing building and surrounding character. The style and materials of the extension do not harmonise with the existing palette of the surrounding area and the metal sheeting finish appears to be of a temporary industrial nature. The structure protrudes above the domestic boundary treatments of no. 3 Wharf Lane and no. 23 Lowgates to the detriment of their outlook. It is considered that the development is out of keeping and incongruous in the local area, and which harms visual amenity, which is contrary to Policy CS18 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031, paragraph 130 of the revised National Planning Policy Framework and the new National Design Guide 2019. 

 

CHE/19/00606/FUL - CHANGE OF USE FROM HOTEL (USE CLASS C1) TO A HOUSE IN MULTIPLE OCCUPATION INVOLVING SHARED ACCOMMODATION, ASSOCIATED ALTERATIONS AND PROVISION OF PARKING SPACES AT 85-87 NEWBOLD ROAD, NEWBOLD, CHESTERFIELD

 

In accordance with Minute No. 299 (2001/2002) Mr Perkins (applicant) and Mr James Norton (applicant’s agent) addressed the meeting.

 

That the officer recommendation be upheld and the application be approved subject to the following conditions:-

 

1.  The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.

 

2.  All external dimensions and elevational treatments shall be as shown on the approved plans/documents (listed below) with the exception of any approved non material  ...  view the full minutes text for item 88.
