Parish Council Notes – October 2009

These notes are highlights from the minutes of the Parish Council Meeting on 7th September 2009.

Planning Applications

a.   6.68.170.FUL Erection of single storey side and rear extensions at Cherry Trees, Mill Lane, plans were viewed and discussed.  The Parish Council came to the decision to respond by not objecting or supporting the application but wishing to make comments/seek safeguards as follows:  Clarification of distances from the boundaries are required as they are not specified.  The plans are very poor and we do not believe they are adequate.  The scales are different on each plan and therefore it is difficult to compare existing and proposed plans.

b.   6.68.146.D.FUL Erection of detached agricultural workers dwelling at Woodlands Farm, planning permission granted on 13th August 09.

c.   6.68.150.A.FUL Erection of a replacement roof over a single storey rear extension at The Firs, Station Lane, planning permission granted on 5th August 09. 


Just to let you know that from 15th September to 14th November between 1pm and 8pm, Harrogate Borough Council consultants will visit 40,000 homes across the District to conduct a doorstep survey about recycling.  They will have ID and a letter of authority.
