Two storey classroom extension to rear, single storey extension to front of existing building, formation of 1000m² hard play area and erection of a 2.4m high fence along the northern and eastern boundary and gate along the eastern school boundary. Alterations to existing car park and access including provision of additional spaces

Minutes:

The Director of Economy reported on submitted planning application 16/00126/FUL for the erection of two storey classroom extension to rear, single storey extension to front of existing building, formation of 1000m² hard play area and erection of a 2.4m high fence along the northern and eastern boundary and gate along the eastern school boundary.  Alterations to existing car park and access including provision of additional spaces at Bowlee Park Community Primary School Windermere Road Middleton M24 4LA.

 

In introducing the report the Development Manager advised the Sub-Committee that the Highways and Engineering Service had confirmed that the site required 91 parking bays to meet the maximum standard in the UDP taking into account the existing and proposed school, extension and other uses.

 

The Sub-Committee was updated with regard to a further Highways and Engineering consultation response which had been received since the publication of the submitted report which recommended that introduction of pedestrian guard rails on each side of the footway for the entire length of the site outside the school to maximise safety at drop off/pick up times by ensuring pedestrians can only cross the road at designated crossing points. The consulation response also recommended the removal of the existing formalised parking bays on Windermere Road to allow traffic to pass Bowlee Park Community Primary School with less vehicle conflict at peak times.

 

The Sub-Committee was also advised of an additional email received from Mr T Linden in which he had requested clarification of further concerns.

 

The Sub-Committee considered objections to the proposed development from Mr Terry Linden and Mr Paul Stewart.

 

The Sub-Committee considered the views of the applicant who addressed the Sub-Committee in relation to the application.
