PROPOSAL: Listed Building Consent - alterations and refurbishment of two first floor bathrooms and the ground floor w/c including alterations to original layout; removal of original features and introduction of extract fans and external waste pipe configuration.
Councillor Marilyn Ashton proposed granting the application for the following reason:
1) the Committee has had careful regard to the officer's report, and its duty to have special regard to preserving any features of special architectural or historic interest of the property, as well as to all the representations received from interested parties. On balance, it considers the proposed changes to the Listed Building do not amount to substantial harm sufficient to justify a refusal of Listed Building Consent.
The proposal was seconded by Councillor Zak Wagman, put to the vote and agreed.
Accordingly, Listed Building Consent is GRANTED subject to the conditions set out in Appendix C, as amended by the Supplemental Addendum published on 16 November 2022.

The Committee wished it to be recorded that the decision to grant the application was by majority of votes.
