                        It was RESOLVED that the following comments on the planning applications received from the Head of Planning and Development Services, EHDC, be passed to EHDC:

a)     20648/003 – Mr I Rae – Replace existing hedge with 2m high hence, Castanea, 2 Stonehill Road, Headley Down – NO OBJECTION

b)     52776/003 –Mr A Adler - New windows and cladding to existing building, ground floor extension and new access onto Lindford Road, Sterling House, Broxhead Trading Estate, Lindford – NO OBJECTION

c)     20500/007 – Mr & Mrs Jones – Replacement pitched roof to sunroom, new window and door openings, Grassmere, 9 Stonehill Road, Headley Down – NO OBJECTION

d)     33819/001 – Mrs L Johnson – Two storey extension to rear and raising height of roof to provide habitable accommodation with dormers to front and rear, Greytiles House, Linden Road, Headley Down – NO OBJECTION

e)     24472/005 – Mr Tibaldi – Two storey extension to side, first floor extension to side, detached 3 bay garage, Headley Cottage, Liphook Road, Headley – We OBJECT to this application.  In view of the previous extensions to this property we believe that the proposed extension would conflict with Policy H16.

f)      32299/007 – Mr & Mrs Burgess – Single storey extension to front, Hawthorns, Beech Hill Road, Headley Down – We continue to OBJECT and repeat our comments for 32299/006 as the current proposal is not significantly different.  We still consider this extension would be contrary to Policy H16 as previous rear extensions to this property have already exceeded the permitted percentage, and we have concerns over off street parking and highway safety.  This front extension would not be in keeping with the street scene and the neighbouring properties and although only the top storey would be habitable accommodation, it would appear as a two storey construction.  It would have a particularly detrimental effect on the outlook of the neighbouring property Fernbank.  We support the District Council’s reasons for refusal on 32299/006.

g)     52857/007 – Mr Marshall – Meadow improvement, Land west of Frensham Pond Hotel, Bacon Lane, Churt – We do not feel able to give a detailed comment on this application and would request an overview from EHDC agricultural consultants as to the need for these works.  We are unable to determine whether these proposals would achieve the desired results and have concerns over large lorries bringing in heavy materials along the narrow access lanes.

h)     57514 – Mr Haynes – New gateway on to Church Road to replace existing gateway, Land south of Rooks Cottage, Churt Road – NO OBJECTION subject to approval from Highways.

i)      30633/032 – Mr P Dale – Variation of conditions 4, 10, 11 and 18 of permission 30633/026 to enable the implementation of the planning permission without prejudicing the council’s ability to review and approve details reserved by condition at an appropriate stage, Grooms Farm, Frith End Road, Frith End – NO OBJECTION provided the suggested replacement conditions are acceptable to, and monitored by, EHDC.

j)      31418/017 – Dr Leung – Two storey rear extension, associated internal alterations and required external works, Badgerswood Surgery, Mill Lane, Headley – NO OBJECTION
