Minutes:

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

 

Barn View, Lower Stoney Low, Keele 21/00426/FUL

 

The Working Party were happy that the applicant was considering flush closing

casement windows but not with the proposal to use an unnatural and unsustainable

material in the listed barns.  They should be replaced like for like and in a uniform

dark stained colour to remain in harmony with the adjacent properties with which they

form an integral part.

 

Linden House, 17A King Street, Newcastle   21/00440/FUL

 

The group objected to the proposed railings which were poorly detailed and appeared

to be of inappropriate quality in the highly prominent corner.  The side of the property

was just as prominent and should be treated the same as the frontage, which was with

a brick wall, high quality railings.  Some members suggested that the wall might be a

little higher as a barrier to the busy road.

 

Oakley Hall, Market Drayton  21/00503/LBC

 

The group accepted the alterations but wanted to ensure that any details, like architraves

and the fireplace, that were uncovered were repaired and reinstated as appropriate. 

There were also no details of proposed new internal doors and this should also be condition

for approval by the LPA to ensure the design is sensitive to the Grade II* Listed Building.

Concern was raised over the ventilation of the wet room, given its location in the centre of

the property.  The Group wanted to condition an architectural watching brief at each stage

of the process so that informed judgements could be made on findings and how to treat

these. 

 

 

5.

CONSERVATION AND HERITAGE FUND

To consider any applications for financial assistance from the Conservation and Heritage Fund which may have been brought to this meeting by the officer

Minutes:

There were no applications.

6.

URGENT BUSINESS

To consider any business which is urgent within the meaning of Section 100B(4) of the Local Government Act, 1972.

Minutes:

The following item was considered urgent due to the timelines involved with taking the item to the Planning Committee:

 

 

Lancaster Buildings, High Street, Newcastle  21/00577/DEEM3 & 21/00578/LBC

 

The Group objected to this proposal, which is a permanent harmful fixture for a temporary situation.  It is harmful to the architectural features of the shop front, like the curved glass doorway, and it means the shop cannot use the display.  They appreciate the attempt to have a design but either closed or open this gate will block an important part of the character of the entrance and is unacceptable.
