Planning Matters April 2007
Plans considered since the last meeting to be ratified:
Hilland Farmhouse, Batchmere Road, Birdham
The Council raises NO OBJECTION to this application
No2 Allman House, Birdham
The Council raises NO OBJECTION to the main application but notes that the outline permission granted in 2003 (BI/03/00526/OUT) shows a line of car park spaces along the south-west boundary of the site. This area is at present grass and adjacent a ditch and to the drive of Cowdry Farm, next door. We feel it would be a pity to lose the rural nature of this boundary area and hope that the applicant would consider using some form of greencrete material of the car parking spaces must go there and that the serried row of car park spaces might be broken up by some form of shrub planting at intervals. We would also have concerns about flooding from run-off from hard-standing if the ditch were removed.
