Planning Applications to be considered at the Parish Council meeting to be held on 19 April 2021

21/00947/PLF – Riverside House, Weel Road, Weel – Erection of a single-storey rear extension with roof terrace over and associated external spiral staircase (PC comments by 24.4.21)

21/00957/PLF – 3 Eastfield Close, Carr Lane, Weel – Erection of a single storey extension following the removal of an existing rear conservatory, combined with improvements to the existing dwelling (PC comments by 28.4.21)

Planning Applications awaiting a decision by East Riding of Yorkshire Council:


20/03720/STPLF – Land North Of East Riding Community Hospital, Swinemoor Lane, Beverley – Erection of a petrol filling station and associated convenience store (Sui Generis), 2 drive thru units (Class E) and 6 industrial units (Class E/B2/B8) and associated infrastructure, 171 parking spaces and landscaping 

T&RPC Comments:  The PC strongly object and call in for consideration by the Committee for the following reasons;

• The traffic survey is unreliable due to being undertaken during the Coronavirus Government lockdown restrictions.
• The application is not acceptable development due to being on Open Countryside and there being alterative brown field sites available at the Grovehill end of Swinemoor Lane.
• The flood risk on this site, surrounding common land and properties on Hull Bridge Road from additional surface water onto land that already has a high water table. The flood risk category for this site is different to that noted on the application for the hospital site. As ERYC is aware, the Environment Agency has acknowledged that the Parish of Tickton is at higher risk of flooding and is currently re-evaluating the flood zone rating.
• The increased levels of litter in the area and on the common land.
• The proximity to hospital services.
• The PC question the need for an additional petrol station in view of the move towards electric vehicles and based on the approved application near Lidl and the proximity of existing provisions on Holme Church Lane.

20/04277/PLF – Land East Of 1 River View, Weel Road, Weel – Change of use of garden for the siting of a shepherds hut for use as holiday accommodation (retrospective)

T&RPC Comments: Object due to;
1. Does not satisfy S4 as it does not respect the character of its surroundings – proximity to neighbouring dwellings and the host property.
2. EC2 It does not constitute sustainable development as tourist accommodation as there are no facilities within Weel and travel to nearest tourist area and shops could not safely be achieved by foot or cycle. There is no public transport. The unit is placed in too close a proximity to neighbouring properties and their environs which would detrimentally effect the character of the area.
3. Parking issues – there is insufficient land to accommodate parking for the host property as well as the holiday let. On street parking is not considered appropriate in this location.
4. Drainage issues. The land borders an area susceptible to surface water flooding – without appropriate mitigation this development could worsen the situation. The proposed disposal of foul waste from the unit is inadequate – the occupier of the host property would suffer further intrusion from this waste being dealt with.

21/00422/VAR – Land South East Of High Farm, Routh – Variation of Condition 10 (restriction of number of overnight stays in a 6 month period and continuous register of stays) of planning permission 14/03061/PLF (Change of use of land to permit the siting of touring caravans and tents for holiday use together with the erection of a shower/toilet amenity block) to remove reference to the 28-overnight stay in any 6-month period restriction 

T&RPC Comments: The Parish Council strongly object to variation of condition 10 and call in for consideration by Committee. Allowing caravans to be left on site for 52 weeks would negate the intention of this designation as a touring site. The Parish Council refer to our comments on the original planning application for this site. Allowing 52-week siting of caravans would reduce the level of genuine touring pitches available in the north of the site, forcing touring pitches to the area most at risk of flooding.
The siting of caravans and pods in this location will have a detrimental effect on the rural landscape and on the residential amenity of the occupiers of 1 High Farm Cottages in terms of noise and disturbance.
If the Council are minded to permit this change, a suggested condition would be to carry out a full land contamination assessment as advised in the original application prior to any additional pitches being brought into use. 

21/00457/PLF – 280 Hull Bridge Road – Erection of a dwelling with detached garage 

T&RPC Comments: Object due to scale and strongly suggest that the plans are checked to ensure that there is sufficient access to the garage without infringing on neighbouring properties. If approved, conditions to include suitable water attenuation plans to mitigate the impact of surface water run-off, soakaways and suitable water treatment plant.


Planning Application Appeals to be considered by the Planning Inspectorate:


20/00001/REFUSE – Land North West Of Red Cottage 1 Weel Road Tickton – Change of use of land to gypsy caravan site and storage of vehicles, machinery and equipment within existing barn including hardstanding, construction of earth embankment and erection of ancillary amenity block (part retrospective).  

T&RPC Resolved:  To request that Planning Inspectorate take into consideration that the resident has dug a dyke around the plot which appears to be to support drainage on the site which would indeed suggest that this is an area of high flood risk inappropriate to caravans being sited on it.

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) the informal hearing scheduled to commence at 10:00am on 23 April 2020 at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Cross Street, Beverley, HU17 9BA is postponed until further notice.
