Reports of the Head of Planning Services on planning applications to be determined at this meeting:


The Head of Planning Services submitted one application and report to be considered.


Application A- 29 Coronation Road, Thornton Cleveleys, Lancashire, FY5 1DQ (20/00429/FUL) pdf icon PDF 257 KB

Change of use of existing bungalow into a children’s care home and works to building including roof lift, single storey rear link extension and addition of pitched roof to existing garage



The application was brought to the meeting for determination due to the fact that the application had been before the emergency powers decision meeting on 22 July 2020. It had been brought back to the emergency powers decision meeting due to an administrative error that had resulted in letters to the neighbours of the site not being printed and posted. Therefore, following the expiry of the consultation period and the report being updated to take account of the representations received, the application was brought back for reconsideration. 


Councillors Moon and Ballard confirmed they were familiar with the site due to a recent site visit relating to another application on the site. Prior to the meeting, the site photographs were also distributed to further assist with the understanding of the proposal and its impact.


It was stated that Environmental Health had amended their comments in light of the misunderstanding of the application noted in the previous report
