·         Full approval of application 20/01426/FUL – Change of use from mixed café bar and residential to solely residential, 17 George Street, Harwich.

P015/21 MATTERS RECEIVED IN THE POST OR RAISED BY MEMBERS

Members noted the following items of correspondence.

Premises Licence Variation – British Flag Public House, 56 West Street, Harwich. Cllr Todd asked if the opening hours had been approved.  Cllr J Henderson said it only goes to committee if there are a lot of objections or the police have asked for an existing licence to be reviewed because there’s been issues; otherwise it goes to the officer to determine and is often passed.  She explained that the way in which licencing applications are determined differs to that of Planning applications.

Premises Licence Variation – DCS Enterprise Solutions Ltd, 1 Midland House, High Street, Dovercourt.  Cllr G Smith was unsure what the variation was to the licence but felt it related to the restrictions imposed on indoor seating during the pandemic.  Cllr I Henderson concurred and said it was likely a continuation of this.  Cllr J Henderson suggested TDC is asked to request that the licensee makes sure to keep within their designated boundary and not cause an obstruction to the pathway, which has been observed recently. Perhaps this could be managed with some form of partition or panelling, which is often used to cordon off an area.  The clerk agreed to raise these issues with the licensing officer.

• Tendring’s Local Plan news release.

Appeal Decision – 19/00249/FUL – Proposed two storey dwelling with a vehicular and pedestrian access from existing private driveway, 45 Manor Lane, Dovercourt.

Appeal Decision – 20/00136/FUL – Proposed erection of a new 3 bedroomed detached bungalow and garage, 3 Frobisher Road, Dovercourt.  Cllr J Henderson called this in at the district council and it was originally refused by the planning authority but has been overturned by the Planning Inspectorate.

The next Town Planning meeting is to be held on Tuesday 27th July 2021 at The Mayflower Primary School, Main Road, Dovercourt at 6.30pm.
