Clerk To West Hill Parish Council

Comment Date: Wed 02 May 2018

This application was discussed at the meeting of West Hill Parish Council on 1st May 2018.
Councillors supported this application, with the following comments:
Although Councillors would not wish to see development in this location, it seems that the cowshed fits the very relaxed planning rules. Councillors are concerned that as soon as the work is completed, an extension will be sought and therefore seek the following conditions:
1. Removal of permitted development rights.
2. The hay barn is removed completely prior to any other work.
3. Trees. Councillors do not accept the tree surgeon's report although they do accept that many of the trees are not fine examples. The tree cover is the character of the village and its removal destroys this character. The tree report suggests that the life expectancy of oaks is 10-20 years, which is not correct ' they could live for more than 100 years. There should be a complete review of the tree report to limit the numbers of trees removed to perhaps 1 or 2 and proposals for maintenance and replacement with indigenous species ' oak or beech.
