Demolition of C19 addition to 10 Littlegate Street and alterations to and refurbishment of the retained building
Reason at Committee:
The application is before the committee as it is the accompanying listed building consent application for planning application 21/03582/FUL
The Oxford City Planning Committee is recommended to:
1. approve the application for the reasons given in the report and subject to the required planning conditions set out in section 12 of this report and grant planning permission; and
2. agree to delegate authority to the Head of Planning Services to:
· finalise the recommended conditions as set out in this report including such refinements, amendments, additions and/or deletions as the Head of Planning Services considers reasonably necessary; and
· Issue the listed building consent.
The Committee considered an application (21/03583/LBC) for Listed Building Consent for the demolition of a C20 century addition to 10 Littlegate Street and alterations to, and refurbishment of, the retained building.
The Planning Officers gave a joint presentation covering the application and the related full application 21/03582/FUL which was the preceding item on the agenda. The following was noted:
· The listed building known as ‘the cottage’ comprised a five bay, timber-framed, 17th century building which had been built over the surviving remains of a 12th century gatehouse to the Blackfriars Friary, some of which remains were presently visible within the building. The removal of the later extension would offer the opportunity to make publicly visible a stone archway which was currently only visible from within the building as well as any additional surviving stonework in the west wall of the listed building that may be uncovered during the proposed restoration;
· The proposal involved the removal of a large flat roof dormer and restoration of the roof to a single pitched roof;
· The requirement for an archaeological watching brief and building recording had been included in a recommended condition;
· Correction was provided to paragraph 1.1.1 of the officer’s report stating that this should refer to planning conditions set out in section 15 (not as written section 12) of the report and that the recommendation should be for the issue of Listed Building Consent (not planning permission);
· The 17th century timber frame building, although significantly altered, retained some of the original timber frame and this would be restored and repaired in a conservative manner as part of the proposal.
A proposal to grant Listed Building Consent was moved and seconded.
On being put to the vote the Committee agreed with the officer’s recommendation to grant Listed Building Consent.
The Oxford City Planning Committee resolved to:
1. approve the application for the reasons given in the report and subject to the required planning conditions set out in section 15 of the report and grant Listed Building Consent; and
2. delegate authority to the Head of Planning Services to:
· finalise the recommended conditions as set out in the report including such refinements, amendments, additions and / or deletions as the Head of Planning Services considers reasonably necessary; and
· issue the Listed Building Consent.
