Erection of single storey front extension and two storey side and rear extension including the provision of a Juliet Balcony (Resubmission of previously approved scheme under R19/0007 granted on 11/02/2019 for the erection of single storey front and rear extension and two storey side extension including the provision of a rear dormer).
Retrospective application for retention of new stables, including access road and hardstanding (Variation of Condition 1 of approved planning permission R16/1986 dated 11/11/2016 to substitute approved plan with amended plan to include amendments to the design of the stable roof)
Plan reference #2 & #3 - Poplars - Dismantle to ground level. Trees have outgrown the area they are in, have a history of losing branches and sections of bark close to garage and driveway, and it is believed that the trees are nearing the the end of their short lifespan. Poplar trees at No's 135 & 129 have previously been removed to poor tree health/age/disease. The roots are also become problematic, lifting the paving on the drive way in the direction towards the house and double garage, which requires attention Owner is unwilling to have them reduced or pollarded as he feels the re-growth is unsightly and would prefer to re-plant with something more suited to the space. There is another mature Poplar (#1) on the premises which would remain., and would maintain the areas wooded feel.
I do not have the TPO numbers available to me. I have however numbered them on the attached drawing: YT1 - Yew Tree 1 removed a suppressed yew tree under previous application. The tree removed has impacted the adjacent more substantial yew. Reduce branches extending out of main canopy by up to 1m to improve shape. (picture to be submitted). Reason: lower branches interfering with usage of garden and touching adjacent fence and extending into neighbours garden. Dense canopy with sporadic dead wood. Crown raise to give 4m clearance from ground level. Crown thin by 15% to allow light to penetrate. Reduce height by 1.5m to assist with future management.
YT2 - Yew Tree 2Reduce branches extending out of main canopy by up to 1m to improve shape. (picture to be submitted). Reason: lower branches interfering with Victorian garden wall on one side and touching and growing through telephone cables. Reduce height by 1.5m to assist with future management. Dense canopy - crown thin by 15%to allow light to penetrate.
SC1 - Sycamore Tree - self-set sycamore too close to Victorian wall surrounding garden and encroaching onto YT2. Permission to remove and replace with indigenous tree within the garden.
Shorten lower branch tips to give 6m clearance above ground level to allow more light under the canopy and reduce the growth of moss. Shorten branches on the south side by up to 3m and shaped to create a more balance and symmetrcal crown shape and provide greater clearance to the adjacnet building.
T9 (common beech) has an included bark union at 4m which has previous split open and the tree is now liable to structural collapse. It is recommended that the tree is felled to ground level and the stump removed. T6 of TPO No.261 2006.
T27 (common lime) shows a large open crack at the east side stem base showing extensive hollowing and degraded wood within. The tree is liable to structural failure through wind loading. It is recommended that the tree is felled to ground level and the stump removed. T16 of TPO No.261 2006.
Mitigation planting to be confirmed with RBC Tree Officer through planning process.
