P15/18TO AGREE MINUTES OF THE LAST MEETING
The minutes of the last meeting had been circulated and it was RESOLVED that they be duly signed as a correct record.
P16/18TO DISCUSS THE APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AS LISTED
Addition of Trough Lighting to Free Standing Sign The Red Lion South Lane Chalton
Reviewed and commented on: OBJECT as it is contrary to the SDNP's Dark Skies policy and that as the land belongs to Clanfield Parish Council they do not have the landowners consent for such a proposal - and are not likely to get it. The site is also within the Chalton Conservation Area - a protected area and inappropriate for illuminations of this kind.
Site visits were carried out by the Chairman and Clerk
Conversion of offices into 6 Habitable Units - 1 South Lane
Members viewed the proposals and received input from the applicants and residents, who were objecting to the proposals and were told to write to EHDC with their concerns. After discussion it was agreed that the Council would OBJECT as there were major concerns with regards to the dangerous access on the corner of South Lane, increase in traffic movement and potential lack of parking as well as the general issue of the dangerous access, the proposed increase in the roof height on the southern side would be further over-development of the site - the mid-section is already three stories high and dominates the street-scene.
Variation of Condition 6 of 49547/007 to allow removal of hedge and retention of Metal Railing Fence - 63 Chalton Lane
Members discussed the proposals – retrospective – and received input from the applicant – the railings were installed as a health and safety measure for access. Cllr Clarke objected but it was considered by the Chairman and Cllr Collins that the comments to be submitted would be No Objections as they had none to raise
Single Storey Rear / Side Extension. Cladding to Rear Dormer & Gable End (Resubmission of 57107) - 7 New Road
Members viewed the proposals and received input from the applicant who explained the difference between this application and the previously agreed application – after discussion it was agreed that No Objections would be raised
Retention of Single Storey Rear Extension - 3 Pine Tree Walk, Drift Road
Members viewed the proposals - retrospective - and received input from the resident – after discussion it was agreed that No Objections would be raised
SDNP/18/00484/HOUS Renovation and Extension of an Existing Dwelling, Single Structure for the Purpose of Car Parking and Storage following the Demolition of two existing Outbuildings – Highbank Petersfield Lane

Two storey extension to rear with side dormers and dormers to front - 121 Green Lane
Members viewed the proposals and after discussion agreed that the Council would OBJECT as it was considered massive overdevelopment of the site and another bungalow being converted to a two storey property
Conversion of garage to Habitable Accommodation - 3 Lodsworth Close
Members viewed the proposals and after discussion agreed that No objections would be raised – it was noted that the neighbouring property had converted their garage so a precedent had been set
