Three more homes planned for Mayfield Grove

The planning committee is being recommended to approve the construction of 3 homes on a site in Mayfield Grove. A similar application earlier in the year was deferred pending receipt of a bat study.

That study has now been provided.

If approved at a meeting taking place on 6th July, the houses would replace an existing bungalow located towards the front of the site with its main garden to the rear.

There would be a semi-detached pair of 4 bedroom dwellings at the front of the site on the footprint of the existing bungalow and a single detached 2 bedroom bungalow to the rear.

Vehicle access would be from Mayfield Grove, via newly created parking areas and private driveway to the rear property.

The local planning panel had criticised the plans saying that they represent an over development of the area.

Mayfield Grove planning application deferred

At its meeting on 5th January, the council’s Area Planning Committee voted to defer an application to demolish the bungalow at 5 Mayfield Grove and build 3 homes on the site.

The recommendation was for the application to be refused due to concerns that a bat survey needed to be carried out. The Council’s ecologist suggested that an activity survey be carried out in May 2017, therefore the applicant’s agent requested at the meeting that the application be deferred in order to give sufficient time for a bat survey to be carried out.

Speaking at the meeting, Cllr Ashley Mason suggested that parking spaces for the proposed properties were not sufficient, and the height of the proposed dwellings would dominate the surrounding properties. He also highlighted comments from Yorkshire Water over drainage problems in the area.

The committee agreed that the application should be deferred in order to address concerns raised and to allow for a bat survey to be carried out.
