All of the dwellings would be detached, save for one pair of semi-detached properties. Five of the properties are identified as being low-cost including 3 first homes and 2 affordable rent, which would be a mixture of 2 and 3-bed properties. Public open space is proposed to the site entrance. Access should be provided to the site from the now operational Gedling Access Road.

Planning officers have recommended that the application is approved.

Change of use from B2 (General Industry) to a flexible use of B2 (general Industry) and Sui Generis (dog day care) – Forester Street, Netherfield

This application seeks permission to change the use of the existing general industrial unit to a flexible use of B2 (General Industry) and doggy day care facility (sui generis use). In accordance with Class V of Part 3, Schedule 2 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2015 (as amended), permission can be granted for interchangeable uses for a period of 10 years. At the end of the 10 year period the active use becomes the lawful use. 3.2 No external alterations to the building are proposed as part of this application.

Planning officers have recommended that planning permission is refused. They said: “The proposed use, through the noise that it would generate from the dogs, along with increased vehicle movements, including dropoffs and pickups, would have a detrimental impact on the amenity of neighbouring properties in a predominan residential area, to the detriment of the amenity of local residents.”

Install a 10m column, concrete base and street cabinet for CCTV camera – Vale Road, Colwick

The application site is on the corner of Lockerbie Street and Vale Road in a largely residential area. Neighbouring land uses are predominantly residential with some retail and food and drink uses to the south side of Vale Road.

The total height of the proposed column with antennae extension will be 12m. 3.2 The purpose of the camera is to assist in the prevention and detection of crime and anti-social behaviour at the site.

Planning officers have recommended that permission is granted.
