4 Minutes of Meeting 4 December 2019 It was resolved to accept these as a true record.
On the previous meeting it was raised about the mound of earth on the development on lower Tittensor Road relating to the ménage. The earth has come from the building of the new stable block, it is the intention once the mound has been tempered down to use this as a base for a boundary hedge, which will be in keeping with the neighbouring land instead of the wire fence. There appeared to be a new entrance which is not on the plans. Cllr Jones to investigate.

5 Planning Committee Recommendations

  • 18/29680/HOU at 11 Whitethorn Avenue, Barlaston ST12 9EF, proposed development described as single storey rear extension and raising of existing garage roof. It was noted the plans appeared to be over the boundary line, this is not a planning but a legal issue however the matter was noted. It was therefore resolved to approve this application.
  • 8/29523/HOU at 5 Parkfields Farm Rowan Barn Tittensor Road, described as retrospective planning application for new door. Subject to the door being in keeping with the adjacent properties, it was resolved to approve this application.

It was noted mud was being deposited on the bend adjacent to the cemetery, Clerk to look at legislation.

Date of next meeting 8 January 2019, Barlaston Methodist Church, Park Drive, Barlaston.
