Application for installation of 4x5 metre high lamp columns and associated lighting units (retrospective).


Late items received after preparation of agenda:



One additional comment was received, stating that the lights were on at 10pm on 13th July.

Further consultation with Paynes Garages Ltd has been undertaken. CCTV footage which covers the car park and the back of the houses has been reviewed from 10pm on 13 July which shows that no lights are on in the car park.


Condition 2 as set out on the agenda restricts the hours of operation and should the lights be operated outside of the suggested hours, the condition is enforceable. Currently, there are no restrictions upon the use of the lights, only the granting of planning permission would trigger these conditions.  The impact upon residential amenity is considered within paragraphs 8.2 to 8.11 of the officer report to committee. No harm to residential amenity has been found, in consultation with HBBC Environmental Health. 


The recommendation remains unchanged.
