will be roughly 4 metres from the boundary with the adjacent Rumic Limited unit and of a similar size. The external materials are dark grey steel sheeting to the roof with rendered walls and brown cladding above. Whilst it would be open to views from the east, the proposed building would be seen against and part of the existing industrial units. (Plans are on display).
The building would be a purpose built unit similar, in this respect, to the nearby Rumic building and would replace the somewhat visually dilapidated garage currently on site. No new access is proposed and no objection received.
I recommend that Planning Permission be GRANTED subject to the Standard Duration Limit and the following conditions:
No development shall take place until samples of the materials to be used in construction of the external surfaces of the development hereby permitted have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Planning Authority. The development shall be carried out in accordance with approved details.
In order to protect the visual amenities of the area due to the relationship between the proposed building and the open aspect to the east and south.
The development shall be screened by a hedgerow running the full length of the eastern boundary of the site, the details of which shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Planning Authority and shall be permanently retained and maintained thereafter unless the Planning Authority gives written consent prior to any change.
In order to protect the visual amenities of the area due to the sites relationship with the open aspect to the east.
