The Service Delivery Manager presented an encroachment application regarding an extension to the existing jetty with a traditional wooden jetty at land adjacent to Tarnedge, Lakeside, Windermere. The report set out proposals to extend the existing concrete jetty with a traditional wooden jetty, using wooden piles giving an overall length of encroachment of 16.6 metres and width of 1 metre. Furthermore, the jetty was situated within a confined area and between two existing jetties.
The report noted concerns raised by the applicants, that boats had been berthing on the existing jetties North and South, therefore reducing access and egress which had resulted on occasion in an obstruction to their jetty, the installation of the proposed extension would give unfettered access and egress for the applicants.
The Service Delivery Manager informed members of a number of objections which had been received as part of the planning process with regards to the limited space and close proximity to other jetties. He added that the application had no impact on Arctic Char Spawning in the lake with spawning occurring on the lake bed in water 15 to 30 metres deep and that both Lake District National Park Authority (LDNPA) and Environment agency approvals attached as appendices to the report.
The Chairman invited Mrs Slater, the applicant, to address the Lake Administration Committee. The applicant spoke in support of the application and provided background and reasons for the application.
Following discussion on the item, members proposed and seconded that the meeting move into Part II to discuss the application in more detail.
