3.         The development hereby permitted shall be constructed in accordance with the following approved plans and documents except insofar as may be otherwise required by other conditions of this planning permission: Planning Statement; Alternative Site Assessment (prepared by NLP); Design and Access Statement (prepared by NLP); Extended Phase 1 Ecology Survey Report (prepared by Lockhart Garrat); Arboricultural Statement (prepared by Lockhart Garrat); Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (Applied Landscape Design); Glint and Glare Study (Pager Power); Highways Impact Statement (Bancroft Consulting); Agricultural Land Classification Report (Richard Stock); Desk Based Heritage Assessment (RPS); Site Location Plan (ref:GIS/50539/01-22); Site Layout (ref. 1053-A-01 rev -); Topographical Survey (ref 81/01); Solar Array Details (ref. 02); Control Room Details (ref. 03); Inverter Cabin Details (ref. 04); Customer Cabin Details (ref. 05); DNO Switchroom Details (ref. 06); Fence and Gates Details (ref. 07); and Camera Details (ref. 08).

Application No. 2016/0534- 19 Kighill Lane, Ravenshead, Nottinghamshire. pdf icon PDF 326 KB

Minutes:

Residential development on land to south-east of Kighill Lane to provide 16 No. 2 bedroom retirement bungalows.

 

The Planning Delivery Manager advised members that a further late letter of representation had been received from the applicant. The letter stated that the applicants would ensure that construction would be commenced within two years, that local residents would be given priority as residents and that a local labour agreement would be put in place. Members were advised that these representations did not address the concerns raised n the report and the recommendation to refuse was unchanged.

 

RESOLVED:

 

To refuse outline planning permission for the following reasons:

 

1.         In the opinion of the Borough Council, the proposed development would constitute inappropriate development in the Green Belt by virtue of not serving the five purposes of land within the Green Belt. Therefore, in the absence of any very special circumstances the proposed development would, by definition, be harmful to the Green Belt contrary to the guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework (2012).

 

2.         By virtue of its isolated location any residents would be naturally inclined to be heavily reliant on private motor vehicles to access services and facilities. It is the opinion of the Borough Council that the development would therefore not represent sustainable development, contrary to paragraph 55 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

3.         In the opinion of the Borough Council the high density of the proposed development would not reflect the pattern of development in the immediate surrounding area and would not add to the overall quality of the area enhancing local identity. The proposal is therefore contrary to Section 7 of the NPPF and Policy 10 of the Aligned Core Strategy (September 2014).

Jayne Green, a neighbouring resident, spoke in objection to the proposed development.

 

RESOLVED:

 

To grant planning permission subject to the following conditions:

 

1.         The development must be begun not later than three years beginning with the date of this permission.

 

2.         The development herby approved shall be completed strictly in accordance with the plans and application forms received on 5th July 2016, document no's: Design and Access Statement (First Issue 05/07/2016); Arboricultural Assessment (July 2016); Ecological Appraisal (July 2016); Non-residential Mining Report (51001175308001); Transport Assessment (TPLE61348); Proposed Site Plan (3100_12_rev C); Block Plan (3100_11_rev C); Site location drawing (3100_10_rev C); Proposed Views (3100_16); Proposed Elevations (3100_15_rev B); Proposed Site Sections (3100_13_rev A); Landscape Strategy (1016 001) and Proposed Plans (3100_14_rev C).

 

3.         Before development is commenced there shall be submitted to and approved by the Borough Council a Landscape and Ecological Management Plan which incorporates detailed landscape design proposals including details of planting and species types, tree protection measures and plans to show any changes to existing levels.  Measures to be taken for wildlife protection and habitat enhancement should also be incorporated into the Plan such as precautionary methods of working in relation to reptiles, and a pre-commencement walkover to confirm that the site remains free of badger activity.  The Landscape Scheme should include species mixes, establishment methods and maintenance regimes with the use of native species of tree and shrub as well as wildflower seed mixes and wetland planting. A Habitat Creation Strategy should detail the salvage and temporary stockpile of the top 100mm of low-nutrient, seed-bearing substrate in all areas to be affected by the development that currently support semi-improved grassland. The creation of a south-facing 'butterfly bank' using surplus soils, topped with substrate, along the northern side of the new car parking to provide replacement dingy skipper habitat.  Once approved the scheme shall be implemented strictly in accordance with the approved details.
