Resolved:                   That the following observations be made on the applications listed below:-




Summer House, New Road, Wrinehill    20/00717/FUL




The Working Party expresses concern over the proposal for a property in this location noting that the adjacent Daisy House was allowed as enabling development for refurbishment to the Grade II* Listed Building and that the juxtaposition from the Listed Building was considered an acceptable distance. Trying to then locate another house in between the two, much closer to the Listed Building is not acceptable in terms of the wider setting of the Listed Building.


The design is poor as a generic modern house, there appears to be no effort to understand the architectural character of the Summer House.  The roof is too large proportionally within the characterful streetscene of Wrinehill.  Some members particularly disliked the bungalow frontage and others would prefer a thoroughly modern approach with low flat roof.


Betley Court, Main Road, Betley  20/00729/FUL & 20/00730/LBC


The Working Party considered the submission for a temporary access into Betley Court gardens for the restoration of the house.  They accept the poor state of this section of wall and wish to ensure that investigation is undertaken to fix the problem with the nearby drain before the wall is reinstated.  There were no objections to the proposal.
