Declarations of interest
20/01316/FUL - Councillor Tanner declared that whilst he had been a Member who had called in this item he had not made his mind up on the matter and came to the meeting with a completely open mind.
Proposal: Erection of a single storey extension to north elevation (revised site location plan).
Site address: Holy Trinity Church, Trinity Road, Oxford
Recommendation: East Area 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.
The Committee considered an application for planning permission for the erection of a single storey extension to north elevation (revised site location plan) at Holy Trinity Church, Trinity Road, Oxford.
Jenifer Carpenter, on behalf of the Holy Trinity Preservation Group, spoke against the application, outlining concerns about disturbance to the graves and flooding from foul and surface water.
Rev Dr Laura Biron-Scott (the Vicar) and Christian Randall (the Architect) spoke in support of the application.
The Planning Officer and legal adviser confirmed that the disturbance of graves was not a material planning consideration, and was covered by other legislation and ecclesiastical requirements.
On being proposed, seconded and put to the vote, the Committee agreed with the officer’s recommendation to approve the application.
East Area Planning Committee resolved to:
1. approve application 20/01316/FUL for the reasons given in the report and subject to the 11 required planning conditions and 2 informatives set out in section 12 of the report and grant planning permission; 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.
