New pedestrian access into and out of the Academy grounds which is compatible with Disability legislation. The proposed scheme widens, straightens and levels this path and extends it through to the cark park up to the Academy building entrance. The works also include changes to the existing railings and gates needed to accommodate the upgraded path.
Parish Comments:- We do not object to having a disabled access but we do object to the loss of trees. The tree report is from 2017 supporting a previous application we would recommend re-planting to replace the loss of trees on this sensitive green belt site. Proposed fencing is an urbanising feature and not compatible with the Green Belt.

Two storey rear extension, front entrance canopy, loft conversion/extension with front/rear facing dormer/roof windows and alterations to fenstrations.
Parish Council Comments: Object. This proposed further extension to the property would result in a large,
bulky and unattractive structure of excessive depth. The design is symmetrical and monolithic in its appearance
and would appear out of character in this woodland road.
We refer you to the “Built Form” section of the “Townscape Character Study” where the second bullet point states, “Range of individual architect designed houses of varied architectural styles, materials and detailing and generally an asymmetrical, informal architectural composition”.
We would also ask you to be mindful of the following clauses from the NPPF document:
“Are visually attractive as a result of good architecture, layout and appropriate and effective landscaping”
“Are sympathetic to local character and history, including the surrounding built environment and landscape setting, while not preventing or discouraging appropriate innovation change”.
We believe the following policies to be relevant to this application EP3, EP5 a, b and c, H9 a and b and H11.
