Ilfracombe Town Council amends recommendation about application for planning permission to re-develop the Lee Bay Hotel site

posted 16 Sep 2015, 02:38 by LLRA: Online Administrator   [ updated 16 Sep 2015, 02:38 ]

Ilfracombe Town Council’s Planning & Environment Committee met on 7th September in Lee Memorial Hall to consider the planning application to re-develop the Lee Bay Hotel site. A number of residents were surprised and concerned by the committee’s decision to recommend approval without any conditions. (The Town Council does not make decisions about planning applications but makes recommendations to the local planning authority of North Devon Council.)

At a meeting of the full Ilfracombe Town Council on 14 September, councillors voted in favour of a motion:

To amend the Planning & Environment Committee’s recommendation to:
‘recommend approval subject to the planning authority investigating and addressing the concerns raised by residents, including those concerns set out in a statement made by the Committee of the Lee & Lincombe Residents’ Association’.

Lee Conservation Area Character Appraisal

North Devon Council, i.e. the district council, has prepared a draft report entitled ‘Lee Conservation Area Character Appraisal’ for consultation. As far as I know, the consultation has not yet been advertised but the report is available on the NDC website. Sections 9.4 to 9.10 of the report refer to the Lee Bay Hotel site. The report is difficult to locate and a copy is therefore being made available (below) on the LLRA website.
