and new facing brick to match the existing dwelling.

Two letters of objection have been received from the occupiers of 25 and 27 Bluebell Wynd with respect to the proposed development. The objectors live across the street from the proposed development and the grounds for objection are as follows; the impact that the proposed garage will have on the outlook of our property, the amount of commercial vehicles parked outside the property and the garage being utilised for commercial purposes, road safety issues with respect to the parking of vans on site and the width of the driveway access. The design and scale of the garage is considered acceptable given that the garage incorporates a pitched roof to match the existing dwelling and will be finished in materials to match the existing dwelling. The scale of the garage is considered acceptable given the site is a large corner plot which has more than adequate garden ground able to accommodate the proposed garage. The transportation Manager has been consulted as part of this application and has offered no objections to the development on road safety grounds. The applicant must ensure that the current access is reinstated and a new 3 metre dropped kerb access formed for the new driveway. With respect to the concerns regarding commercial vehicles and the use of the garage in a non domestic capacity the applicant has submitted a letter confirming that the garage is for residential use only. Furthermore any consent for the garage would ensure that the use of the garage permitted shall be restricted to private use incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse on the site and no commercial activity shall be carried out, in, or from, the garage.

The proposed garage was assessed using policy HSG8 and HSG13 of the Southern Area Local Plan Finalised Draft (Modified 2001 & 2004) and is acceptable in terms of its positioning, design, scale and materials. Sufficient garden ground will be retained and therefore the proposal is not considered to be overdevelopment. The Transportation Team Leader has been consulted as part of the application and has offered no objections subject to conditions outlined above.

The application therefore accords with policies HSG8 and HSG13 of the finalised Southern Area Local Plan and is recommended for approval.

Notwithstanding the plans hereby approved the applicant shall reinstate the footway in front of their existing access, remove their existing drop kerb access and lay new kerbing to tie in with the existing kerb upstand.
