Additional documents:


There had been circulated copies of the request from Hawick Angling Club, per Roxburghe Home Solutions Ltd, Unit 1, Block 1, Galalaw Business Park, Hawick, to review the decision to refuse the planning application for replacement windows at the Angling Club, 5 Sandbed, Hawick.  The supporting papers included the Notice of Review; Decision Notice; Officer’s Report; papers referred to in the Officer’s Report; objection; and a list of policies. Members noted that the property within which the replacement windows were proposed was located within the Hawick Conservation Area.  Whilst expressing the view that replacement of the windows would be likely to improve the appearance of the building, they agreed that insufficient information had been put forward, about the detail of the replacement windows proposed, to enable a decision to be made in terms of their visual impact on the character of the building and of the Conservation Area. 



AGREED that:-


(a)        the request for review had been competently made in terms of Section 43A of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997;


(b)       the review could not be considered without further procedure in the form of written submissions; 


(c)        the applicant be requested to provide further information as follows:-


  • Detailed specification of the frame thickness of the proposed uPVC outer frames and transom with a comparative specification of the width of the existing wooden frames and evidence of how much thickness of the proposed frame would be visible from outside, in comparison with existing thickness (include photographic evidence of existing frame);
  • Clarification as to whether the proposed frame would be recessed or flush with the surrounding shop front and if recessed, by how much; and
  • Photographic evidence of the context of the proposed replacement windows in terms of windows in surrounding shop fronts.


(d)       consideration of the review be continued on a date to be confirmed.
