4. Planning
4.1 184118 9 Croft Crescent, Yarpole – new double garage and conversion of existing garage: It was noted that this property has already been extended over 10 years ago, and that the plans available on the Herefordshire Council planning portal do not reflect the actual footprint of the current building. It was agreed that the Parish Council have reservations about the plans due to the visual impact of the proposed new garage which is obtrusive and not in keeping with the other properties in the area. Concerns were also raised about the proposed new dropped kerb as the sightlines for vehicles using the exit are very limited.

5. Items for next agenda: No items were raised.
