Demolition of existing building and erection of 1 no. 3 bed dwelling.
Mrs Tull expressed disappointment that Cllr Johnson, who had been asked to red card the above Application, had not deemed it a suitable Application to red card. If red carded, Officers could have deferred the decision and could possibly negotiate alterations to the roof.
5. Confirmation of Applications discussed at the Meeting on 20th November 2019
5.1 SI/19/03043/FUL – Field South of Green Lane Piggeries, Ham Road, Sidlesham.
Change of use of land as private gypsy and traveller caravan site (variation of condition 2 of planning permission SI/14/04058/COU (APP/L3815/W/3019459) – to make temporary permission permanent.
The PC objected to this application. The plot of land is in flood zone 3 and therefore unsuitable for the ancillary development required for the caravans. Unanimous decision to confirm decision.
6. New Planning Application for Discussion
6.1 SI/19/03123/DOM -. Longreach, 14A Chalk Lane, Sidlesham, Chichester, PO20 7LW
Erection of double garage and store.
No objection. Sidlesham PC request that a caveat be added that no further development be permitted on the site and all permitted development rights be withdrawn from the building. All agreed.
6.2 SI/19/03085/FUL - Chalk Meadow, Chalk Lane, Sidlesham, PO20 7LW
Agricultural workers dwelling. (Removal of condition 4 of permission 01/01360/FUL- agricultural occupancy restriction.)
The PC objects to this Application. The PC believes that the parish needs to retain houses for agricultural /horticultural use. There are a number of caravans used by agricultural workers in the area which demonstrates the need. Unanimous decision.
