    Minutes:

    PROPOSAL: Retrospective application for installation of replacement shopfront.

     

    Following her declaration of interest, Councillor Wing left the meeting for the duration of this item.

     

    Cllr Scobie spoke under rule 20.1 in favor of the application.

     

     

    It was proposed by the Chair and seconded by the Vice-Chair:

     

    ‘THAT the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

     

    That the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

     

     

     1  The alterations to the shop front have resulted in the loss of a shop front that was constructed with a traditional design and materials. The replacement shopfront by virtue of its modern design and materials fails to preserve the architectural and historic merit of the building, detracting from the special character and significance of the Conservation Area as a designated heritage asset, resulting in significant harm which is not considered to be outweighed by the public benefits of the proposal. This development is therefore contrary to the aims of paragraphs 130, 197, 199, 200, and 202 of the National Planning Policy Framework and Thanet Local Plan Policies HE02 and QD02.

     

    Upon being put to the vote, the motion FELL.

     

     

    It was then proposed by Cllr Albon and seconded by Cllr Jill Bayford that:

     

    “Members approve the application as the benefits from the new shopfront, specifically accessibility, thermal efficiency and reduced fascia size, outweigh the identified harm to the Northdown Road Conservation area.”

     

    Upon being put to the vote, the motion was declared CARRIED.
