A report has recommended councillors give the green light to plans to demolish a Shenstone property and replace it with two dormer bungalows.
Objections had been raised by both Shenstone Parish Council and Cllr David Salter over the scheme at 18 Eastridge Croft.
But a report to a meeting of Lichfield District Council’s planning committee has recommended approval.
“The principle of the development on the site is considered to be acceptable.
“This is a sustainable location within the village where new residential development is supported in principle by local and national planning policy.
“Following the submission of revised plans, it is considered that the applicants have submitted a suitable scheme which meets with the requirements of the relevant development plan policies and subject to conditions, the development would not have an adverse impact upon the character or appearance of the surrounding area, nor have a detrimental impact on the amenity of neighbouring residents or prejudice highway safety, so as to justify refusal.
“Consequently, it is recommended that this application be approved.”Planning report
The development proposals will be discussed by the planning committee at Lichfield District Council on Monday (9th May). Full details of the application are available on the local authority’s planning website.
