CPA To Consider Approval For After The Fact House & Additions In EE | Loop Cayman Islands

According to the agenda for a meeting of the Central Planning Authority (“CPA”) scheduled for today, January 3, 2024, the CPA will consider an after-the-fact one-bedroom house and storage shed and proposed addition to the house located on John McLean Drive in East End.

Based on the CPA agenda, “The construction consists of a timber-framed floor anchored to reinforced block and concrete piers, a timber siding over framed walls and zinc roofing on timber-framing.”

“Aerial imagery reveals that the house has existed from year 2012,” the CPA agenda added.

It was further explained that the applicant informed “that he occupied the property throughout the period since 2010 and to relocate the structure would [be a] costly exercise for him.”

Regarding the proposed addition, the CPA documents state, “The applicant is seeking permission for additions to the south (front) portion of the house creating bedroom #2 and a shower to the existing bedroom #1.”

Based on the CPA agenda, the applicant is asking the Authority to allow “A side setback variance – of 8ft 0in as the subject addition exists at 2ft 0in from the side [of the] property line instead of the required I0ft for a single storey dwelling.”

The agenda added that no objections have been received to date from adjacent landowners.

This morning, the CPA will consider the setback variances and “the aesthetics and to satisfy itself that the design of the development is consistent with the historic architectural traditions of the Islands under regulations 9(1).”

The CPA meeting will be held in Conference Room 1038, 1st Floor, Government Administration Building, 133 Elgin Avenue, George Town, starting at 10 am.
