5002  PLANNING APPLICATIONS
 
             
Application No.
Location and Description
12/01293 (Advertisement)
Budgens Stores Ltd, 3 The Hermitage, High Street, Ascot, SL5 7HD
Consent to display a non-illuminated notice board
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/01355 (Full)
21 Beaufort Gardens, Ascot, SL5 8PG
First floor front extension over existing garage
Recommendation: No Objections.

12/01441 (Full)
Halstead House, Upper Village Road, Ascot, SL5 7AG
2 x 4 bed dwellings with associated landscaping and car parking
Recommendation: Objections.  The proposal was considered to be an overdevelopment of the site and would therefore have an adverse affect on the street scene.  Plot 2 was considered to be too close to 2 Lower Village Road and Plot 1 could possibly overlook 22 Oriental Road and would therefore be unneighbourly. 

12/01433 (Outline)
Land at 53 and 53 Cheapside Road, Ascot
Outline application for the construction of a detached house
Recommendation: No Objections.

12/ 01434 (Full)
Mellery, Coronation Road, Ascot, SL5 9LP
Two storey side extension
Recommendation: No Objections.

12/01443 (Works to trees Covered by TPO)
Bramley Cottage, Burleigh Road, Ascot, SL5 7LE
Beech T1, lift to provide 5.2m clearance over road and driveway and deadwood
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee were concerned that the proposed 5.2m clearance was too high and that the Borough’s Tree Officer needed to be satisfied that there were sound arboricultural reasons.

12/01460 (Full)
10 Spring Gardens, Ascot, SL5 9DQ
Part two storey, part single storey side and rear extension.  Repositioning of entrance door from front elevation to side elevation
Recommendation: No supporting documentation was available from which to comment.

12/01462 (Full)
10 Spring Gardens, Ascot, SL5 9DQ
Two storey side and rear extension and alterations
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered the proposal to contain inadequate parking arrangements.

12/01466 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO)
9 Holmes Close, Ascot
Fell a Sweet Chestnut (T1)
Recommendation: Objections unless sound arboricultural reasons were given.

12/01474 (Full)
3 New Road, Ascot, SL5 8QB
Single storey side and rear extension

12/01475 (Full)
Evergreens, The Avenue, Ascot, SL5 7LY

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/01484 (Full)
Land at Grangewood and Maple House, Larch Avenue, Ascot
Construction of a detached house with basement and roof accommodation, a detached garage with accommodation above, and new access onto Heathfield Avenue
Recommendation: Objections One reason for refusal given at the appeal of the previous application, 10/01275, was still valid. The proposal would have an adverse impact upon the character of the area and was therefore contrary to the Townscape Assessment and Policy H11. 

12/01504 (Full)
Bar One , High Street, Ascot, SL5 7JF
2 storey rear extension
Recommendation: No Objections.

12/01505 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO)

Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.

12/01532 (Full)

Recommendation: The committee were unable to comment as the plans submitted were unclear and inadequate.  The committee requested that the plans be re-submitted and referred to the Borough’s Highway Department, so that they could be satisfied that the proposal met the relevant standards.

12/01559 (Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Development)
61 Cavendish Meads, Ascot, SL5 9TB
