Minutes of a Meeting held on Tuesday 26 November 2019 in the Jessel Room

Present: Cllrs Barry Noakes (Chairman), Craig Broom, Chris Ditton, Alan Foster, Antony Harris, Mrs Caroline Richards and Guy Sutton.

1. Apologies for Absence: None 

2. Declarations of Interest: None

3. Planning Applications for consideration 

19/02997 Sunnyside, Church Road, Goudhurst

Two storey side extension.

Recommend approval

Due to the high hedge to the east of the house, the impact of this proposal on the locality and the conservation area will be limited. Subject to the volume increase complying with TWBC policy, GPC is content that the application is approved.

19/00036 Forge Farm Bedgebury Road Goudhurst 

Retrospective planning application for retention of 10 storage containers.

Recommend refusal

The submitted application gives no information on the use to which these containers are being put. It is not therefore possible to judge whether such use will lead to an increase in traffic generation on the access road, which serves several other properties, and whether such increase will be acceptable.

It appears that a small copse has been removed to facilitate the placement of these containers. Were these trees protected? GPC believes that this application should not be determined until these issues are clarified.
