The Minutes of the last ordinary meeting of the Council were approved and signed by the Chairman. There were no matters arising.
Planning Application: 17/00714/HOUSE – Proposed single storey rear extension and new front porch at 12 Flowers Piece.
After a short discussion, it was agreed by a majority vote that an objection should be submitted on the grounds that the proposed new single storey addition would result in an overdevelopment of the site and have an overbearing effect on the neighbouring properties. It was also agreed that the depth of the proposed development, when added to the fairly recent larger extension, is excessive and not appropriate to the setting and that the Council would not wish this to set a precedent for future extensions in Flowers Piece.
The Clerk was asked to pass on these observations to West Berkshire Council and our District Councillor.
There being no further business the meeting closed at 7.45 p.m.
