No recommendation. 90/00 S/0239/00 Mr Mansfield 88 The Rowans - extension. No recommendation. Comments: Quite a large extension particularly at first floor level; concern about effect to number 90; master bedroom windows fairly close to number 90. 91/00 S/0240/00 Rector and PCC of All Saints' Church - car park. Refuse unless the following amendments/considerations made: 1. Council would prefer not to see a tarmac surface but a type of "grasscrete" to preserve the appearance of what is a conservation area. 2. There should be no pruning of the yew tree, as this would spoil the balance of the tree. To prevent this tree being damaged the car parking space at the eastern end should therefore be removed from the proposal. In addition this car parking space should be removed because of the possible danger to vehicles leaving the space next to a sharp bend in the driveway to the hospice. 3. Any other tree pruning/removal should be done only with the consent of the SCDC Trees' Officer. 4. We question the removal of the street lamp to a position nearer the entrance as in its present position it would highlight the car parking area as well as providing some safety for persons using this road. 5. We question the reasons for removing the speed hump (to the east of the proposed car park - not shown on plan) as apparently the speed of vehicles leaving the hospice has increased since its removal and would suggest that it is reinstated. 92/00 C/11/40/72 Mrs Barclay Lock keeper's house Baits Bite Lock - removal of Scots Pine (Fen Ditton Conservation Area) because of root damage. No comments. 93/00 6 Public Entertainments Licences AGREED to renewal of Lion and Lamb and Napp Sports and Social Club public entertainments licences subject to no alteration in the conditions.
