Approved Drawing 8296/14

This was approved by the Planning Manager on 14th October 2013, ST114613COND Decision Notice.pdf, and the height and width can be gauged by scaling using the portal columns and roof beam.
More accurately, the height can be found by measuring the gable end in the A1 drawing sent to the Council for the approval of condition 4. The drawing is drawn to a scale of 1:100 and is 16cm high.

In case there is any confusion about which end of the cover is being referred to in this drawing, the cladding is designed to go on the outside and is shown on the down side of the portal column. If the drawing referred to the road end gable end it would be shown on the upside of the portal column.
More importantly there is a note on the drawing “strips to draw back to each side to allow access for boats” and the boats come up the slipway from the river.

When this was drawn in August 2013, one has to assume that the draughtsperson had referred to the authorised plans from 1996 and the Legal Section of South Tyneside Council tend to confirm this. In the last stage of their complaints procedure before submission to the Local Government Ombudsman, Customer Advocacy said:

I have not considered this point further because it is clear that drawing 8296/14 . . . could never supersede the previously approved plans in terms of defining the dimensions of the approved development.
