Minutes of an Emergency Planning Meeting. 22nd January 2016
Reason,The late arrival of the application which did not allow for proper discussion at the Parish Council meeting of 12th January 2016.
Present. Cllrs. S. Dawson, M. Turville-Petre, S. Johns, D. Harrod
Planning Consent Ref. PF/15/184
Old Farm, Coast Road, Salthouse. Holt NR25 &XG
The Council OBJECTED to this application for the following reasons:-
The proposed dormer door and balcony at first floor level is too large and wholly out of proportion to the building.
Glazing bars would improve the general appearance.
Four large openings (doors) on the ground floor extending to the floor level will increase the risk of sea inundation to the sleeping area.
Four roof-lights unless fitted with blinds will increase light pollution.
The rear extension comprising of a flat roof and timber facing, is visible from the road on the approach to the village and unsympathetic to the character of the original building.
- The property is one of the most vulnerable buildings in Salthouse with considerable risk of flooding. To allocate the ground floor to sleeping accommodation would therefore seem to be manifestly unwise.
- As it seems apparent that the property will be used as holiday accommodation, holiday-makers with no knowledge of flooding and without the benefit of the automated warning systems, may be at considerable risk.
- The local flood wardens therefore do not support this application
- The accommodation comprising in excess of eight persons may impact adversely on the already challenging parking difficulties.
