Purpose:

South Lakeland District Council
Lake Administration Committee
5th October 2018
Encroachment Application to Construct to replace and construct 3 new jetties and balcony at Calgarth Hall Windermere

Decisions:

Members had been provided with a revised copy of Recommendation 2.1.1 c which now read, “removal and replacement of the existing slipway 2.5m south of its current location and to cover an area of 2.7m squared.”

 

The Principal Lake and Parking Services Officer reported on an application for permission to replace the two existing jetties, relocate the slipway and add a balcony to the encroachment at Calgarth Hall.  Attention was drawn to the fact that the Lake District National Park Authority had already approved an application to demolish the existing boathouse and to construct a new boathouse to include both jetties; the boathouse was located above the Council’s registered title.

 

Details of the application under consideration were provided.  It was also pointed out that an application for dredging had been received covering only the internal area of the boathouse. 

 

RESOLVED – That

 

(1)        the Director People and Places be delegated authority to grant permission, subject to the completion of a revised Encroachment Agreement, for the following:-

 

(a)        replacement of two existing wooden jetties;

 

(b)        installation of a glass balustrade balcony; and

 

(c)        removal and replacement of the existing slipway 2.5m south of its current location and to cover an area of 2.7m squared; and

 

(2)        the intention of the applicant to undertake dredging to the internal area of the boathouse be noted.
