Planning Application




Ref 14/02182 – Erection of detached garage following demolition of existing at Alma Cottage Main Street Tickton East Riding of Yorkshire HU17 9SH for Mr and Mrs Janney

Resolved – An objection is raised due to the size and scale of the proposed development (specifically the height of the garage and size of the doors) being well in excess of domestic need.  The scale is overbearing and not in keeping with its location being set between residential neighbours and the Conservation area to the north and open countryside to the south.  It will therefore have a negative impact on the landscape and residential amenities of nearby properties and is therefore contrary to ENV1 and EC2 of the draft East Riding Plan.

Additionally, if the planning officer is recommending a different decision, it should be referred to the appropriate Committee.

However, if the Committee approve this application then the following conditions should be imposed





Ref 14/02334 – Change of use of agricultural storage business to storage of goods and chattels (e.g. caravans, oats, trailers, horse boxes and cars) for private individuals at New Ferry Farm Weel Road

Resolved – if approved conditions should be imposed to ensure that light pollution is minimised and that hours of use are restricted to avoid school run times to and from Weel. 


A comment is made that the application underestimates the amount of traffic that would need to access the site by the single track road from Tickton to the bridge as accessing the site via the bridge whilst towing is extremely hazardous.


Ref 14/02386 – Erection of single storey extension to rear following demolition of existing store at St Pauls

Church Main Street Tickton, HU17 9RZ for Mr R Powell

Resolved – this application is supported


Ref 14/02419 – Retention of detached garage at 10 Butt Lane Tickton for Mr Goforth

Resolved – If approved the following condition should be imposed:



Ref 14/02180 – Erection of a dwelling at Alma Cottage Main Street Tickton East Riding of Yorkshire HU17 9SH for Mr and Mrs Janney

This application was deferred until a valid application is received


53  Request from Village Hall for Letter of Support:


Tickton Village Hall Management Committee had asked the Parish Council for a letter of support to add to the applications they were submitting to grant funding bodies for finance to enable them to replace the roof material at Tickton Village Hall.  The costs were estimated to be about £69, 400 and currently there was approximately £55,000 unallocated funding in the development fund.  The request also asked the Parish Council to consider precepting an amount to contribute towards the re-roofing in 2015/6.

Resolved – A letter of support is to be drawn up by the clerk on behalf of the Parish Council supporting the village hall and the need to replace the roof. Consideration of the request to precept for funds for the project will be brought back when discussions regarding the 2015/6 precept are on-going.


There being no further business the meeting closed at The next ordinary meeting of the Parish Council was scheduled for 15 September 2014.
