Minutes:

The Local Review Body (LRB) of Aberdeen City Council met on this day to review the decision taken by an appointed officer under the Council’s Scheme of Delegation to refuse the application for the erection of a two-storey side extension with integral garage and alterations to boundary wall and rear extension roof at 9 Kildrummy Road, Aberdeen, Planning Reference number 210477/DPP. 

 

Councillor Boulton as Chair, gave a brief outline of the business to be undertaken, advising that the LRB would be addressed by the Assistant Clerk, Mr Mark Masson with regards to the procedure to be followed and also, thereafter, by Mr Gavin Evans who would be acting as the Planning Adviser to the Body in the following case under consideration this day.

 

The Chairperson stated that although the Planning Adviser was employed by the planning authority, he had not been involved in any way with the consideration or determination of the application under review and was present to provide factual information and guidance to the Body only.  She emphasised that the officer would not be asked to express any view on the proposed application.

 

The Local Review Body was then addressed by Mr Masson, Assistant Clerk in regard to the procedure to be followed, at which time reference was made to the procedure note circulated with the papers calling the meeting and to more general aspects relating to the procedure.

 

In relation to the application, the LRB had before it (1) a delegated report by the Appointed Officer, Aberdeen City Council; (2) an application dated 2 April 2021; (3) the decision notice dated 16 June 2021; (4) links to the plans showing the proposal and planning policies referred to in the delegated report; and (5) the Notice of Review submitted by the applicant.

 

The LRB was then addressed by Mr Evans who advised that the review had been submitted with all necessary information within the time limit of three months following the decision of the appointed officer.

 

Mr Evans then described the site advising that it was a residential curtilage, located on a corner plot at the junction of Kildrummy Road and Fintray Road. The site comprised a one-and-a-half storey, semi-detached dwellinghouse with associated front and rear gardens. There was currently a lean-to garage abutting the southern gable of the dwelling (onto Fintray Road). To the rear of the garage was a single storey extension, measuring 5.2m long by 2.2m wide. These two single-storey elements of the property were set slightly back from the boundary wall (circa 1.3m).

 

Mr Evans made reference to the history of the site and outlined the proposal for Detailed Planning Permission (DPP) which was sought for the erection of a 1.5 storey side extension, with integrated garage and utility/storage space at ground floor level and living accommodation at first floor level by virtue of dormer windows at front and rear. The extension would measure approximately 4.3m wide, taking it right up to the boundary with Fintray Road, and would project c.9.3m (matching the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 1.

The LRB then considered the second request for a review to evaluate the decision taken by an appointed officer under the Council’s Scheme of Delegation to refuse the application for the erection of a shed and pergola to the rear (retrospective) of 13 Tollohill Place, Aberdeen, Planning Reference number 210913/DPP. 

 

The Chairperson advised that Mr Gavin Evans would again be acting as the Planning Adviser to the Body in the following case under consideration this day and reiterated that although the Planning Adviser was employed by the planning authority, he had not been involved in any way with the consideration or determination of the application under review and was present to provide factual information and guidance to the Body only.  She emphasised that the officer would not be asked to express any view on the proposed application.

 

In relation to the application, the LRB had before it (1) a delegated report by the Appointed Officer, Aberdeen City Council; (2) an application dated 22 June 2021; (3) the decision notice dated 24 August 2021; (4) links to the plans showing the proposal and planning policies referred to in the delegated report; and (5) the Notice of Review submitted by the applicant’s agent.

 

The LRB was then addressed by Mr Evans who advised that the review had been submitted with all necessary information within the time limit of three months following the decision of the appointed officer.

 

Mr Evans then described the site advising that it was a triangular residential plot, located on the corner of Tollohill Place and Tollohill Crescent. The site comprised a two storey, semi-detached dwellinghouse and its associated front and rear curtilage. The dwelling fronted Tollohill Place and adjoined 12 Tollohill Crescent to the south-west (RHS when looking from street). There were lockup garages over the rear boundary. The dwelling sat elevated above street level and was served by a driveway and a single garage along the north-east boundary. In addition, the property had previously been extended to the rear by way of a single storey extension which projected c.3.9m from the rear wall of the original property. Beyond this extension, a partially screened pergola had been erected and at the far end of the plot a shed had been constructed. Both the pergola and shed had been erected without planning permission.

 

Mr Evans outlined the planning history and proposal for Detailed Planning Permission which was sought retrospectively for the erection of the existing pergola and shed. The pergola projected c.4.2m from the rear of the single storey extension, c.5.6m wide and c.2.6m high at highest point. It was constructed of timber with a perspex roof and canvas curtains to each side. The shed was located at the far end of the rear garden and had been constructed to fit with the shape of the site. It measured a maximum 6.6m in width and 6.9m in length, extending along both boundaries, and had an overall height of 2.5m. It was constructed of timber with canvas curtains to  ...  view the full minutes text for item 2.
