The Chair referred to the late correspondence received from Holme Parish Council, which had been summarised in late correspondence, but not published on the website.  He adjourned the meeting at 9.35 am to allow Members time to read the correspondence.


The meeting reconvened at 9.45 am.


The case officer reminded the Committee that the application had been deferred from the last meeting on 7 May 2024, following receipt of late representations from the Parish Council, in order to allow officers in collaboration with the Conservation Team, to fully assess the points raised.


The late representations provided was a draft heritage assessment which outlined in greater detail the history of Brownsea and the associated dwellings by Stockdale Harrison and Sons.  The additional information had been assessed within the report.


The case officer presented the report and explained that the application sought full planning permission for the construction of a replacement dwelling at Brownsea, 44 Beach Road, Holme next the Sea.


The application site was within the Conservation Area and was within Flood Zones 2 and 3 of the Borough Council’s SFRA (2018). The site was also within the Norfolk Coast National Landscape.


The application had been referred to Committee for determination at the request of the Planning Sifting Panel and deferred at Planning Committee on 7 May 2024.


The Committee noted the key issue for consideration when determining the application, as set out in the report.


In accordance with the adopted public speaking protocol, Mr D Hasler (objecting), Wendy Norman (objecting on behalf of the Parish Council) and Chris Lindley (supporting) addressed the Committee in relation to the application.


The Chair added that he had visited the site before the meeting, and he considered the building to be neglected rather than dilapidated.  He also congratulated the Parish Council for the material produced in support of their objection to the application.

Councillor de Whalley expressed concern that bedroom 3 was on the ground floor and created extra risk in an area at risk of flooding.  He added that he could not be convinced from the evidence before him that a bedroom on the ground floor would be safe for the life of the dwelling.


Councillor Bubb added that much had been made that this dwelling was one of four.  The case officer displayed the location of the other three dwellings on Google Earth which were spread along Beach Road.
