Update from the Development Manager

Minutes:

The Committee received and noted the Development Manager’s report setting out six appeal decisions notified – four had been dismissed and two had been allowed.  In addition, Members were advised that a further appeal was determined as invalid by the Planning Inspectorate.

 

The Development Manager drew attention to the two appeals allowed.  Members were reminded of the appeal allowed for application 18/2608/OUT – Land South Of King Alfred Way, Newton Poppleford for non-determination and were advised about application 19/0281/FUL – 16 Parkey Cottages, Clyst St George.  The Inspector determined there was minimal impact on the character and appearance of the area.  The Development Manager drew Members’ attention to the implication that the Inspectorate look favourably when considering applications for extensions of residential gardens into the countryside.

 

Finally the Development Manager drew Members’ attention to a High Court decision not on the agenda but related to an application in East Devon.  Members’ noted the High Court had determined that Policy E18 - Loss of Holiday Accommodation of the Local Plan does not apply outside of Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Seaton and Sidmouth. The Development Manager advised Members’ that the outcome of this decision is that applications seeking to remove conditions restricting properties to holiday lets no longer require 12 months of marketing but that applications must be considered on the basis of other policies in the Development Plan including whether they are located close to a range of services and facilities in accordance with the criteria to Policy D8 of the Local Plan.
