Upon a vote being conducted by roll call and by seven votes to three, the Committee refused the application contrary to the recommendation in the report from the Joint Director of Planning and Economic Development. Members agreed that the proposal, by virtue of its mass, scale and overbearing nature, and in conjunction with an existing extension to the garage, would have an unacceptable adverse impact on the amenity of the neighbouring property known as Oakleigh House. The proposal therefore conflicted with Policy HQ/1 of the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan 2019. Final wording of the Decision Notice would be drafted by officers in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Planning Committee.


Councillors John Batchelor, Cahn and Fane voted to approve the application. Councillors Bradnam, Heylings, Milnes, Rippeth, Roberts, Heather Williams and Wright voted to refuse. Councillor Ellington had left the meeting and did not vote.
