With reference to article 3 of the Planning Development Management Committee of 24 May 2018, whereby it had been agreed to visit the site before determining the application, the Committee had before it a report by the Interim Chief Officer - Strategic Place Planning, which recommended:-
That the application for the erection of a 1.5 storey extension to the rear at 76 Morningside Avenue be approved unconditionally.
The Committee heard from Councillor Ian Yuill, who spoke as a local member in regards to the application. Councillor Yuill addressed the Committee and advised that he had concerns in relation to the impact the proposed extension would have on the neighbouring properties, and felt that the proposed underbuilding would be excessive to the neighbouring properties. Councillor Yuill highlighted that various other properties on Morningside Avenue had extensions, but were either one storey extensions or conservatories and felt that the proposed extension was excessive.
Garfield Prentice, Team Leader, spoke in furtherance of the application and answered various questions from members, whereby it was noted that in regards to over shadowing the neighbouring property, there would only be a slight impact in the morning to the patio area but was not considered to be a significant impact.
The Committee resolved:-
to approve the recommendation contained within the report and therefore approve the application unconditionally.
- Councillor Marie Boulton, Convener
