3. Minutes of the Parish Council Meetings held on 11 July and 19 September and Planning Meetings of 11October 2019.

4. Planning Matters 

a. New Planning Matters

Planning Application No: 19/02457/HOU

Applicant: Mr & Mrs Andrews

Location: Park Farmhouse, Beech Lane, Stoke Trister. BA9 9PQ

Proposal: The erection of an oak framed detached garage building incorporating home officer and ancillary accommodation.- 

  1. It is unclear from the map exactly where the building would be situated.
  2. The most sensible positioning would be if the old stables were demolished and the new building sited there.
  3. Please clarify if this is the case, if so, we have no objection to the application.
  4. One query would be have they obtained planning permission for the new stables in situ at the moment.

NB. Mrs Andrews contacted the Chairman to state she would be away on holiday at the time of the meeting.

Planning Application No: 19/02369/FUL

Applicant: Mr Simon Minney

Location: Riding Gate House, Riding Gate, Wincanton. BA9 8NQ

  1. Proposal: Conversion of an existing outbuilding to an annex/holiday let.- On principle restoring this building there are no objections. It is a positive approach to restore and old building.
  2. One comment we wish to make is that the existing pantiles be used rather than the tiles on the application. This would maintain the character of an old building.
  3. When we reviewed the planning Application No: 19/00448/HOU we requested that the mobile home should be removed.
  4. We note that that there is now a substantial wood cladded building in place now. Has planning permission been granted for this? 
  5. Will this also be used for a holiday let?
  6. Will planning permission be required for change of use for both of these buildings for holiday lets?
