2. Planning applications
1583/04 Proposed double holiday cottage, 2 boat workshops (1 with offices over, 1 with a holiday flat over) and outside hardstanding area for boat/trailer parking and winter storage. Hinks Yard, Long Lane, Appledore RESOLVED - Recommend Refusal as the present application is out of character and in the coastal zone. Council would accept a commercial/industrial use with small residential accommodation using the footprint of the existing cottage.
2039/05 Proposed change of use of land to incorporate into garden. Seashells, 30 Dudley Way RESOLVED - There seems to be some doubt over the ownership of this land but in any event it needs to be kept as a public open space with a public right of way through it.
2154/05 Proposed Listed Building application for replacement of 1 window and entrance door, blocking up of 1 window, 2 new roof lights plus internal alterations and upgrades to both house and annexe. 68 Irsha Street, Appledore RESOLVED Recommend approval.
2174/05 Proposed extension of existing workshop from current size of 30m x 27m to 45m x 27m. Newquay Dock, Hubbastone Road, Appledore RESOLVED - Recommend approval.
2180/05 Proposed single storey extension to side of house. 47 Western Avenue, Appledore RESOLVED - Recommend approval.
2182/05 Proposed conversion of restaurant and coffee shop to form
2306/05 3 no flats. 9 The Quay, Appledore RESOLVED - Recommend Refusal. Concerned about the loss of a shop in the village. The proposal will result in 4 in total flats which will probably be more holiday homes adding to the ghost town scenario in the winter months and aggravating the parking problems in the summer. There needs to be an economic appraisal to justify the loss of a commercial outlet.
(Vote: 5 For, 1 Against)
