Tonight the Town Council held it's three weekly planning meeting, this an uncontroversial affair.
We recommended approval for a new dwelling in the part built garage in 21 Church Lane. We supported a side extension to 17 Downside.
The Town Council's application for the Cenotaph was presented, councillors urged Mendip for a quick resolution, so the enhancement can be concluded.
We supported a new replacement shop front for 35 High Street, very much in keeping with the style within Shepton's High Street.
We supported the rear two storey extension to 10 Bowlish, this extension cannot be seen from Pike hill, and will have no impact on anyone.
We supported the application to alter the windows in Woodlands farm, this will introduce a steel subframe inside the windows, this seems pretty uncontroversial.
We supported the demolition of the existing garage at 8 leg square and the erection of a replacement garage with roof terrace, this should improve the visual impact to the property.
Finally we supported a retrospective application for a conservatory at 1 Thorne Lane, this is a typical conservatory, and seems acceptable.
The Town Council at it's last planning meeting supported the Conservative Club application to replace and install a new shop front in Paul's Street and a new side extension allowing a new floor for snooker, I was happy to propose recommending approval, but Mendip Council through it's two Conservative district council members refused this application. I took the view we want to see a vibrant High Street and this application would support a social club.
The meeting was concluded within the hour, home to watch the Arsenal, 2-0 up, so the Londoners are happy.
