Tenby Civic Society makes comments on all planning applications affecting Tenby.
At the meeting held on 26th January 2019 the following planning applications were discussed and comments will be/have been forwarded to PCNP –
NP/19/051/FUL Conversion, velux and rear dormer Flat 3 Cresswell Court, Cresswell St. Tenby
No objections – the pitched roof will be retained by flush velux preserving the pitched roof character of the street frontage, whilst the wide dormer is at the rear.
NP/18/0748/FUL Alterations and A3 first floor use . Sergeants Lane, Tenby.
We welcome the proposal extending the revitalisation of Sergeants Lane especially if the work is of the same standard as that carried out in the adjoining related brewery. The retention of the style and features of the façade will retain the character of Sergeants Lane.
NP/18/0755/FUL rear alterations ‘Milton’, Serpentine Road, Tenby
NP/18/0734/FUL New dwelling Noe Acre, Gas Lane, Tenby, SA70 8AG
“Conversion of existing car port to a bedroom with ensuite facilities”
NP/18/0728 Shalom, 40, Lady Park, Tenby, SA70 8JJ
“Dormer extension to western elevation, insertion of 6 no. roof-lights for loft…”
We welcome the proposal; a nearly full width dormer fits in well with this building and the grouping of houses adjoining to the west in a mainly two story cul de sac. The proposal is also a good use of the aspects possible. Consultation with neighbours to the west could be advisable.
Re NP18/0521/FUL Amended top floor dormers, 9 High Street Tenby ( New Look )
We welcome the revised plans for placing the full width dormer at the rear and placing two traditional small pitched roof dormers on the front , also preserving the present pitched roof on the important High Street frontage.
This entirely meets our sole concern about the original proposal and we welcome the change and the effort involved for the applicant, the architect and the planning officers, particularly as this is not a listed building. The restoration of the frontage to a Victorian style shop front is also most welcome.
The pitched roof character of listed and non-listed properties on High Street is an important element in the Conservation Area’s Georgian and Victorian character, which might be lost by precedents of full width dormers.
PA/18/0677/Ful 55 the Glebe, Tenby – extensions.
No objection; the low angle hipped roofs are different to the main roofs, but there are a number of similar front alterations that fit in well already on the estate.
NP/0602/3 Balcony, Crackwell St, rear of Brecknock House,
1 our copy doesn’t have signatures in the necessary places, which could affect legality, whatever the decision 2 – Just a practical point that wood decking becomes slimy and very slippery in wet weather over the winter, so is both a safety issue for holiday lets and is one of the reasons decking has often been stripped out in Tenby after a few years.
The rebuilt and extended balcony and railings atop the cliff rear of Harbour Heights holiday let, Crackwell St has been raised as an unauthorised development at an important location in the Conservation Area. This has been referred by Rob Scourfield for Enforcemnt to examine. The owner lives in S Africa and has been looking to sell for some time.
