The following planning decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s Central planning committee at its meeting on Thursday 20 June 2013 in Shrewsbury.

Castle Cottage, Pulverbatch – 13/01428/TPO
To fell one Araucaria Aranucana (Monkey Puzzle tree) protected by Shrewsbury & Atcham Borough Council (Castle Pulverbatch) Tree Preservation Order 1980.

Decision: Refused – in accordance with the officer’s recommendations.

Shrewsbury Register Office, Column Lodge, Preston Street, Shrewsbury – 13/01585/COU
Change of use from B1 to D1 (place of worship and day care centre).

Decision: Approved, subject to S106/legal agreement to secure additional parking provision – in accordance with the officer’s recommendations.

33 Kennedy Road, Shrewsbury – 13/00156/FUL
Conversion of existing School buildings into 6 apartments with associated parking, after demolition of existing buildings, and addition of 2 homes with garaging.

Decision: Approved, subject to S106 agreement to secure affordable housing provision on site, and an affordable housing contribution – in accordance with the officer’s recommendations.

Retail Unit Adjacent Minsterley Garage, Station Road, Minsterley – 13/00987/COU
Change of use from B1 (Office) to A5 (hot food takeaway).

Decision: Refused – contrary to the officer’s recommendations for the following reasons:

It is considered that the proposed change of use is likely to generate significant activity and vehicle movements at sensitive times of the day.  As a result, given that there is no clear evidence that the limited parking on site will be available to customers of the proposed takeaway, it is considered that the proposal would be highly likely to have an adverse impact on the amenity of neighbouring residential properties and on highway safety, as the lack of parking provision on the site to meet the demand could potentially lead to inappropriate parking on residential streets, on the A488, and in the bus stop lay-by adjacent to the premises. Consequently it is considered that the proposal fails to accord with the requirements of adopted and saved Policy CS6 of the Shropshire Core Strategy.

Besford House, 42 Trinity Street, Shrewsbury – 13/01313/FUL
Conversion of existing building to form 2No dwellings (to include some demolition); erection of 9No dwellings; formation of parking areas and estate road; remedial works to trees.

Erection of detached building to provide two separate cabins of accommodation for overnight use by fishermen.

Decision: Approved – in accordance with the officer’s recommendations.

Decision: Consideration deferred to the next meeting for confirmation to be sought that the part of the access to the plot, on which the garage to no. 55 Trinity Street was currently sited, would be of sufficient width and to enable safety concerns, relating to the side door of no. 55 Trinity Street opening directly on to the proposed access to the plot, to be addressed.
