Notes to Applicant

 

You are advised that planning permission does not override any private legal matters which may affect the application site, over which the Borough Council has no jurisdiction (e.g. covenants imposed by former owners, rights of light, etc.).

 

The applicant is advised that all planning permissions granted on or after 16th October 2015  may be subject to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). Full details of CIL are available on the Council's website.The proposed development has been assessed and it is the Council's view that CIL is not payable on the development hereby approved as the development type proposed is zero rated in this location.

 

It is an offence under S148 and S151 of the Highways Act 1980 to deposit mud on the public highway and as such you should undertake every effort to prevent it occurring.

 

This consent will require approval under Section 19 of the Nottinghamshire County Council Act 1985 and where the new streets are to be adopted an Agreement pursuant to Section 38/278 of the Highways Act 1980 will be required.  Please contact Nottinghamshire County Council to ensure that approvals and agreements are secured before commencement of works.

 

The applicant should note that notwithstanding any planning permission that if any highway forming part of the development is to be adopted by the Highways Authority, the new roads and any highway drainage would be required to comply with the Nottinghamshire County Council's current highway design guidance and specification for roadworks, the 6C's Design Guide.

 

The Advanced Payments Code in the Highways Act 1980 applies and under section 219 of the Act payment would be required from the owner of the land fronting a private street on which a new building is to be erected.  The developer should contact the Highway Authority with regard to compliance with the Code, or alternatively to the issue of a Section 38 Agreement and bond under the Highways Act 1980.  A Section 38 Agreement can take some time to complete, so it is recommended that the developer contact the Highway Authority as early as possible.

 

It is strongly recommended that the developer contact the Highway Authority at an early stage to clarify the codes etc. with which compliance will be required in the particular circumstance, and it is essential that design calculations and detailed construction drawings for the proposed works are submitted to and approved by the County Council in writing before any work commences on site.

 

The applicant's attention is drawn to an informal planning guidance document which has been produced to try and define what sustainable development means in the context of air quality, and how the development might help decrease levels by incorporating mitigation measures into scheme design as standard: http://www.gedling.gov.uk/planningbuildingcontrol/planningpolicy/emerginglocalplan/supplementaryplanningdocuments/)The Borough Council requests that the applicant considers the commitment to incorporate provision for an EV (electric vehicle) charging point(s); to allow residents to charge electric/plug-in hybrid vehicles (see guidance produced by IET Code of Practice for EV Charging Equipment Installation for details of charging points and plugs specifications).

 

The proposed development lies within a coal mining area which may contain unrecorded coal mining related hazards. If any coal mining feature is encountered during development, this should be reported immediately to The Coal Authority on 0845 762   6848. Further information is also available on The Coal Authority website at www.coal.decc.gov.uk.Property specific summary information on past, current and future coal mining activity can be obtained from The Coal Authority's Property Search Service on 0845 762 6848 or at www.groundstability.com.

 

The Borough Council has worked positively and proactively with the applicant, in accordance with paragraphs 186 and 187 of the National Planning Policy Framework, based on seeking solutions to problems arising in relation to dealing with the planning application.  This has been achieved by providing details of issues raised in consultation responses; requesting clarification, additional information or drawings in response to issues raised; and providing updates on the application's progress.
