  5. To consider the following applications for planning permission, together with any applications received since the publication of this Agenda, and to make recommendations thereon to the District Council:

    1. WF.20/0393/HOU – Revised Application - Proposed single storey rear extension at 7 Mitton Street, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire  DY13 9AF.  Looks fine now.  Recommend Approval.
    2. WF.20/0410/HOU - Retrospective erection of replacement boundary fence at 37 Stagborough Way, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire  DY13 8SY.  Already refused.  Contrary to Policy.

WF.20/0593/HOU - Erection of first floor side extension with two-storey rear extension and installation of a glazed balcony to rear at 4 The Ridgeway, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire  DY13 8XT.  Following a site visit, I am of the opinion that the balcony will not cause an issue of overlooking as it will be obscure glazed to the side to protect the privacy of number 2.
    4. WF.20/0597/FUL – Change of use from restaurant to hot food takeaway at 8 High Street, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire  DY13 8DH.  Waiting for comments from consultees.

      CONDITION 17 SHOULD BE REMOVED.
      CONDITIONS 15 & 16 ENSURE THE CARAVANS ARE FOR HOLIDAY PURPOSES ONLY, AND CONDITION 19 ENSURE THE SITE IS SAFELY EVACUATED IN THE EVENT OF A FLOOD.  CONDITION 17 IS THEREFORE A NULLITY.  At Stourport Sports Centre, Harold Davies Drive, Stourport on Severn, Worcestershire  DY13 0AA
    7. WF.20/0648/HOU – Erection of first floor rear extension at 25 Stagborough Way, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire  DY13 8SS.  I have not been to site but I think that the extension will be ok.
    8. WF.20/0661/S73 – Variation of condition 5 attached to Planning Approval SU/29/74 to allow occupancy of caravans for 11 months (closed January) at Stourport Motor Yacht and Bungalow Association Club, Moorhall Lane, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire  DY13 8RD.  Should be ok subject to consultee comments.
    9. WF.20/0677/HOU – Single storey rear extension with ramp access, following demolition of conservatory at 18 Malham Road, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire  DY13 8NN.  A site visit is needed to ascertain whether there is a breach of the 45 degree code.
    10. WF.20/0679/HOU – Proposed two storey rear extension and single storey side extension at 14 Heathlands, Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire  DY13 9NS.  The proposed extension appears to be acceptable in relation to the building in terms of size, and will not impact upon light levels received by neighbouring properties; however I am yet to visit the site to assess the potential impact upon the street scene.
