5          Planning issue(s) and outcomes

  • Planning Application Reference 23/37416/HOU at The Cottage, The Green, Barlaston – described as 2 storey side extension. It was noted that this planning application was approved by delegated decision. Cllr Jones advised he did call this application in; however, it was missed by the Planning Department and had received an apology accordingly. They noted that the application would have been approved anyway. The Parish Council deemed this maladministration and requested the Clerk to approach the CEO of the Borough Council to see what course of action they can take to redress this issue, as the Parish Council had agreed to appoint the Planning Consultant to make representation to fight this application.
  • Planning Application Reference 23/37510/HOU at The Conifers, Bedcroft, Barlaston described as proposed extensions, garage conversion and car port. The Parish Council noted the concerns of the neighbouring properties, however after studying the application could find no grounds for refusal under planning guidelines, therefore the Parish Council had no objections to this planning application.

6          Date of next Meeting – to be determined subject to receiving planning application(s)
