In view of concerns expressed by neighbouring residents about a new garage being built in the rear garden of 11 Willow Crescent the clerk had contacted the planning officer. RTS reported that according to the planning officer the garage was within permitted development if moved back from the road by 18 inches and therefore would not need permission. In its present position, however, (in front of the building line) permission would have to be sought. This issue raised concerns about the protection of old walls - for discussion at September meeting. The meeting ended at 8.30pm.
