The Area Planning Officer introduced the application and explained that it had originally been presented to the Planning Committee on 1 April 2021 and had been deferred for further discussions between officers and the Applicant.  The Area Planning Officer explained that originally the residents at no. 19 Bobbing Hill, Bobbing had supported the application, but had since put their property on the market, and had changed their view to a neutral position.  Following discussions, the two-storey projection had been reduced to 3.5 metres in depth at first floor level, with chamfering of the corner of the extension.  The impact on no. 23 Bobbing Hill was now slightly reduced, and the impact on no. 19 Bobbing Hill, on balance, was not unacceptable.  The Area Planning Officer added that because of the positioning of the neighbouring dwellings, the development would not cast a shadow on No. 19, and the scale and impact of the extension had now been reduced to No. 23, albeit to a small degree.


Mr Marc Stelfox, the Applicant, spoke in support of the application.


The Chairman moved the officer recommendation to approve the application and this was seconded by the Vice-Chairman.


A visiting Ward Member spoke in support of the application.


Members welcomed the changes that had been put in place following the discussions with the Applicant and officers.


Resolved: That application 21/500414/FULL be approved subject to conditions (1) to (3) in the report.
