APP/18/00041: 37 CLIFTON ROAD, TRANMERE, CH41 2SF - Construction of two semi-detached dwellings adjacent to 37 Clifton Road (Amended design)


The Assistant Director for Environmental Services submitted the above application for consideration.


Councillor P Clearly, seconded by Councillor S Kelly moved refusal on the following grounds:


“The proposed development would, by reason of its cramped appearance and proximity to the site boundaries, constitute an over development of the site which would fail to preserve or enhance the character and appearance of the Clifton Park Conservation Area. As such, the proposals are contrary to Policies CH2 and Policy HS4 having particular regards to Criterion (i) and (ii) of that Policy together with the principles of the National Planning Policy Framework.”


The motion was put and lost (6:7)
