A PROPOSED four-bedroom detached house on a South Tyneside estate is set for approval – despite a protest petition against it being signed by more than 200 residents.
At a previous meeting, the council’s Planning Committee agreed to defer a decision over the property in Lincoln Way, Fellgate, Jarrow, until they have paid a visit to the application site.
When committee members reconvene next week planning officers will recommend its approval.
Opposition centres on the plan creating a traffic hazard, and the house being out of character to others nearby.
A report to the committee says: “The proposed development would provide an additional dwelling on an area of open space which is located within a mature and predominantly residential area.”
The site in question was reserved for a public house when the Fellgate estate was built in the late 1960s.
That never transpired, and in 1981 a bid for 10 flats on the site was rejected.
