There were no apologies for absence

2.    DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST

3.    Planning Application 11/00256/FUL Replacement Dwelling at Seven Summers, Russell Hill, Thornhaugh

Meeting convened at Seven Summers to discuss planning application, drawings and plans were examined by all present, and various discussions ensued. The general opinion of all present was that the proposed new dwelling was of such a large scale and height as to be totally unsuitable to the site and was certainly not in keeping with the surrounding properties. The garage was too high given the proximity of a nearby dwelling which is a chalet type.
All dwellings surrounding are of a cottage or chalet style type, with roof lines 3 to 4 metres below the proposed roofline of the proposed new dwelling. All residents present stated that they would send in letters of objection and it was agreed by all members of Thornhaugh Parish Council that the Parish Council would also be objecting to the planning application.

4.    DATE OF NEXT MEETING

Annual Parish Meeting of the 2010/2011 Council and First Meeting of the 2011/2012 Council will take place at 7.00 pm on 17th May 2011 in St Andrew’s Church.

There being no further business to discuss, the Chairman closed the meeting at 8.20 pm
