The report of the Executive Manager – Communities is attached.
The Committee considered the written report of the Executive Manager - Communities relating to the following applications, which had been circulated previously.
As ward Councillors for Cotgrave, Councillor R Butler and Councillor L Healy withdrew from the meeting at this point and did not take part in the consideration of the following item.
20/01309/FUL – Erection of 3 dwellings with associated parking – Land North of 19 Marlwood, Cotgrave, Nottinghamshire.
Further representations were received from residents objecting to the development or making observations, and additional information was received from the applicant after the agenda had been published and were circulated to the committee before the meeting.
In accordance with the Council’s public speaking protocol, Mr Gatehouse (applicant), Mr Douglas (objector) and Councillor Healy (Ward Councillor), addressed the committee.

The Service Manager – Communities recommended two extra conditions requiring the development to meet the higher ‘Optional Technical Housing Standard’ for water consumption and for the provision of an electric vehicle charging point.
Members of the committee considered the development to be of an innovative design, was not overbearing on neighbouring properties and that it sits well on the existing footprint.
GRANT PLANNING PERMISSION FOR THE REASONS SET OUT ABOVE AND SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS.
1. The development must be begun not later than the expiration of three years beginning with the date of this permission.
