(i)12/02309/PLF - Erection of 1.8 meter high boundary fence and replacement of existing gates at Wheels 42 Station Road South Cave East Riding Of Yorkshire HU15 2AA for Mr Adrian Horsley

Application Type: Full Planning Permission

Cllr Lenton proposed the Parish Council recommends refusal of the application as existing boundary fence which is overgrown with a green 2m high hedge, is a pleasing aspect to the Streetscene at the entrance to the village.   The installation of a wooden fence would have an adverse effect to the Northern Entrance to the village.  The Parish Council would be happier if the proposed fence was to be located behind existing hedge. Seconded Cllr L. Turner, All in favour.


57820612 Planning Matters

(iii)To consider response to East Rising of Yorkshire Council re: planning Application:

12/01620/PLF Proposed change of use of part of sports pavilion to a children's day nursery (AMENDED DESCRIPTION) at South Cave Bears Day Nursery South Cave Sports Ground And Pavilion Church Street South Cave East Riding Of Yorkshire HU15 2EP

for South Cave Social And Recreational Committee

Application Type: Full Planning Permission

Cllr L Turner proposed that although the Parish Council raise no objection to the proposed change of use application, The Parish Council have serious concerns regarding the existing access to the Sports Pavilion. There is no footpath for pedestrians, the road is only one car width and is already heavily used, by existing users of South Cave Leisure Centre, the current Sports Pavilion and school car parking.


The Parish Council regularly receive comments from residents regarding the danger of the access to pedestrians and requesting a pedestrian footpath access. We understand there is room for such a footpath adjacent to the road on Council/Education Authority land. The Proposed Change of use of the Sports Pavilion would generate possibly 30 additional car movements both morning and later in the afternoon, co-incided with already heavy use for the school, leisure centre etc.


In addition during severe winter weather the road becomes inaccessible to cars and pedestrians due to ice and snow and although requested previously, the ERYC will not clear or grit this road, even though this is a public road. This road becomes inaccessible to cars, due to the steep incline.


Therefore we would request that this important safety issue is addressed without delay.


The Parish Council resolved to defer the decision to the ERYC and request the application be considered by the ERYC Planning Committee. Seconded Cllr Hardy, All in favour.
