10/10/06 – Capitol Close Planning Refused
At today’s Planning Committee that was held at the Civic Offices, the planning application for the new house in the garden of 16 Capitol Close, Coleview was refused.
Following many complaints from residents about over-development and damage to the street scene I asked for the application to go to Committee.
At the meeting two residents and myself spoke against the application. The Councillors who sit on the committee voted to refuse the application.
They, like the residents and I did not believe the space was large enough to fit another house without impacting the surrounding neighbourhood negatively.
