Notes to Applicant

 

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 PAYABLE on the development hereby approved as is detailed below.  Full details about the CIL Charge including, amount and process for payment will be set out in the Regulation 65 Liability Notice which will be sent to you as soon as possible after this decision notice has been issued.  If the development hereby approved is for a self-build dwelling, residential extension or residential annex you may be able to apply for relief from CIL.  Further details about CIL are available on the Council's website or from the Planning Portal: www.planningportal.gov.uk/planning/applications/howtoapply/whattosubmit/cil

 

The proposal makes it necessary to construct a vehicular crossing and re-instatement of redundant crossing over a footway of the public highway.  These works shall be constructed to the satisfaction of the Highway Authority.  You are, therefore, required to contact the County Council's Customer Services on 0300 500 80 80, in order to arrange for these works to be carried out.

 

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 Borough Council might help decrease levels by incorporating mitigation measures into scheme design as standard.(See: http://www.gedling.gov.uk/planningbuildingcontrol/planningpolicy/emerginglocalplan/supplementaryplanningdocuments/ )The Borough Council would also ask that the developer considers the commitment to incorporate provision for an EV (electric vehicle) charging point(s); to allow employees and/or clients/visitors to charge electric/plug-in hybrid vehicles whilst on site. Reference can be made to 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 and additional information in response to issues raised and providing updates on the application's progress.
