Answers to Committee Member Questions


2.    Councillor Theobald was informed by the case officer that the proposed gardens were similar in size to other properties, approximately 50sqm and the development was very close to Hove Park.




3.    Councillor Theobald considered the design to be appalling and they were against the application.


4.    Councillor Cattell considered the design was contrived to fit the site, the overhang was not a good design element on the front elevation, and the top floor did not appear to be needed. The councillor did not consider the design to be good.


5.    Councillor Robinson considered the proposals to be in keeping with other properties in the street. The councillor supported the application.


6.    Councillor Earthey considered the development to be a good use of space and they supported the application.


7.    Councillor Sheard considered the proposed dwelling gardens to be smaller than they would like, however, they noted there was little space left in the city, and the dwellings would be close to the park.


8.    A vote was taken, and by 7 to 2 the committee agreed to grant Planning permission.


9.    RESOLVED: That the Committee has taken into consideration and agrees with the reasons for the recommendation set out in the report and resolves to GRANT planning permission subject to the following Conditions and Informatives in the report.
