In February 2017 the Board subsequently approved changes to the original plan that were as follows:  Relocating the basement bulkhead from the east side to the location previously approved for the west side deck.  Two windows will remain on the south gable as shown on the current structure.  Change two over one to two over two windows and change to two windows and a door on the west side of the house.

The applicant would like to review additional changes to the approved plan.
DISCUSSION HEIKKI SOIKKELI FOR STUART AND BETTY COTTON; Article 6                Section 6.11B2; 23 South Ridge Rd.; Map 12 Lot 72:  A Special Permit was issued in April 2017 to build an 820 sq. ft. addition which required a Special Permit under the “Big House” bylaw.  The owners would like to add a bay window to the addition which will add approximately 24 sq. ft. of additional living space. The total area of living space on the 3.4-acre parcel with the addition will be 4,325 sq. ft.  The maximum allowable area by Special Permit is 6,100 sq. ft.  Determine if the change is inconsequential or, requires the hearing to be re-opened.
