Cllr. J. F. Robinson, Vice-Chairman

Cllr. P. Payne

Cllr. L. Payne

Cllr. R. Newsam

Cllr. S. Rollinson

Cllr. J. Sizer


Planning Application:


Retention of sand ménage and 2 no. caravans for domestic use ancillary to main dwelling at Kindlegarth, Out Newton Road, Skeffling, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU12 0UU for M Brown - Application type:  Full Planning Permission.


After a lengthy discussion Cllr. R. Newsam proposed that:  "…we recommend the application be refused."

Seconded:  Cllr. J. Sizer

Vote:  Yes  6.  No  1.


Cllr. M. Turnbull then proposed a discussion on the reasons the application be refused.  This to come under Paragraph (d) of the Planning Consultation Form.


1. Approval of the Application would create a precedent and could possibly set a trend in the village which would be unacceptable.


2. Siting of the 2 caravans would be detrimental to the visual outlook of the people who live nearby.


3. It would set a precedent for people using caravans instead of building an extension to their houses to provide additional domestic space.


4. A wooden structure, such as a secure tack room or hut, would be preferable for storage as opposed to a caravan.


5. Additional domestic space would be better as an extension to the house.


If ERYC do approve the application the following conditions must apply:-


1. Only one caravan to be used as a 'dirty room' and storage.  This must not in any way be used as a domestic residence.


2. The Council would approve the ménage.


3. If it is passed one caravan to replace the existing one, providing it is used as a tack room on a non domestic basis as it has been used in the past.  It should not be used as accommodation under any circumstances.


It was unanimously agreed that a letter accompany the Planning Consultation Form outlining the Council's objections.


Meeting closed 9 p.m.
