Reasons for Decision

 

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

 

You must contact the Borough Council's Building Control Section with regard to any proposed demolition of buildings on the site at least 4 weeks prior to any site clearance commencing.

 

The environmental noise assessment shall be suitable and sufficient, where appropriate shall consider the impact of vibration, and shall be undertaken by a competent person having regard to BS 7445: 2003 Description and Measurement of Environmental Noise and any other appropriate British Standards.  The internal noise levels referred to are derived from BS 8233: 2014 Sound Insulation and Noise Reduction for Buildings.  The approved sound insulation scheme must be maintained and, in the case of mechanical ventilation, must be maintained, serviced and operated in accordance with manufacturer's recommendations.

 

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.

 

Should any bats be found during demolition, work must stop immediately.  If the bats do not voluntarily fly out, the aperture shall be carefully covered over to provide protection from the elements whilst leaving a small gap for the bat to escape should it so desire.  The Bat Conservation Trust (08451 300228) or an appropriately qualified ecologist should be contacted immediately for further advice and any advice must be followed before any further demolition work takes place.

 

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.
