19/03974/FUL – Former Garage Site Grittleton Road construction of 7 dwellings. (Revised Submission)
A revised scheme of five 3 bedroom & two 4 bedroom houses has been submitted by Princeton Homes. It is noted that Princeton Homes have met Wiltshire Council planners to discuss issues raised following their original 9 dwelling proposal. At the request of Andy Turner of Princeton, who was unable to attend the PC meeting, Cllrs Crookall & Parker met him and Owen Pryce from Princeton Homes on 10th October to review the proposal in advance of the meeting. Mr Pryce represented Princeton Homes in the Public Gallery.
Councillors noted that the revised scheme places 4 dwellings facing Grittleton Road a layout suggested by WC planners to present a consistent street scene. It was noted that there were a similar number of windows facing onto the road and that the four 3 bedroom properties occupied a similar footprint & orientation to the two 4 bedroom houses facing the Grittleton Road in the previously approved scheme (18/02072/FUL). It was also noted that the roof line of the properties now proposed were lower than those previously approved.
Councillors unanimously agreed to support the application subject to Wessex Water approving the foul water design, Wiltshire Council Drainage Officer approving the drainage scheme and a covenant being placed on the properties forbidding the conversion of garages to living accommodation. Councillors support the developer’s proposal to have the road and surface water drainage systems (SuDS) formally adopted by the relevant authority. Councillors had reservations regarding the choice of red bricks for the construction of the garages. Councillors request that Cllr Baroness J Scott withdraws the call in request.
