DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST
To receive Declarations of Interest from Members on items included in this agenda.
There were no declarations of interest stated.
To consider the minutes of the previous meeting.
Resolved: That the minutes of the meeting held on 5 September, 2023 be agreed as a correct record.
To make observations on new applications received.
Resolved: That the following observations be made on the applications listed below:-
181 Holloway Lane, Aston 23/00799/LBC
No objections and fully support the scheme and good intentions of the owners.
Town House Farm, Audley 23/00806/FUL & 23/00807/LBC
This farmhouse is clearly neglected but has retained some quality and features of interest. The group accepts that the cottage was already ruinous and following the unauthorised works has lost its authenticity. These wrongs should be put right within the farmhouse including removal of the upvc conservatory, the reinstatement of timber windows on the whole building and ensure that the building is in a proper state of repair for any future custodians.
The Old Swan, Madeley Heath 23/00790/FUL
The group has concerns about possible harmful servicing and signage and seating which will accompany this proposal so that its real impact cannot be fully considered.
Butterton Grange Farm, Trentham Road, 23/00698/LBC & 23/00567/FUL
Essentially this scheme is acceptable in principle but the roof trusses should be retained as an important part of the significance of the complex. This will then inform and enable a more appropriate design, splitting the units up properly to get different sizes of dwellings and use of space.
58 High Street, Newcastle 23/00733/FUL
On balance most of the group preferred the amended shop front which retained the side arches rather than incorporate them into the signage given this would probably be shiny in appearance.
St Marys Primary School, Church Lane, Mucklestone 23/00777/FUL
