Proposed conversion and extension of existing triple garage to provide ancillary annexe accommodation.
Lenham Court The Coach House Old Ham Lane Lenham ME17 2LSWe have no comments.
19/502182/FULL 21st May
Variation of condition 2 of 14/503411/FULL (Residential development
comprising erection of 23 dwellings.) to allow a gradual occupation
scheme, starting with 6no social rented properties, prior to the completion of the traffic island.
The Paddock Grove House Old Ashford Road Lenham ME17 2PX
Cllr. M Ballard will contact C Councillor S Prendergast to discuss the variation.
We wish to object on safety grounds, the completion of the traffic island prior to occupation of the development is stipulated in the S106 agreement and should be honoured in conjunction with the TRO on the A20 from 60mph to 50mph, at what is a particularly hazardous stretch of road close to the Faversham Road junction.
19/502456/FULL 28th May
Erection of a single storey front extension, two storey side extension and part two storey, part single storey rear extension. Proposed dropped kerb and driveway.
32 Robins Close Lenham ME17 2LD
We wish to object as the plan excludes the option of bringing bins from the back garden to front by way of outside access. The extension encroaches and includes a party wall. The front single storey is too far forward beyond the building line.
19/502655/LBC 30th May
Listed Building Consent for replacement of external render to ground floor elevations. 6A Maidstone Road Lenham ME17 2QH
We have no comments. (Subject the conservation officers’ agreement of proposed render which is chemically enhanced)
Cllr. A Ratcliffe reported on the Lenham Nursery open day on the 18th May which was well attended.
Some minor changes will be considered to the siting of the building to allow access to the allotment site for deliveries. Cllr. Ratcliffe will speak with the Ham Lane Allotment Association Chairman to outline the plan. He suggested a plot survey to establish precise measurements with regard to the width of the access road. The Nursery Group are requesting negotiations about the lease and heads of terms should be started with LPC at the earliest convenient time.
