Reasons for Decision

 

In the opinion of the Borough Council the proposed development would result in no significant impact on neighbouring premises or the area in general. The proposed development would represent sustainable development as identified in the NPPF. The proposal is acceptable from a highway safety viewpoint, raises no flood risk issues, health and safety issues or contamination issues. The works therefore accord with Policies E3 and ENV1 of the Gedling Borough Council Replacement Local Plan (Certain Saved policies 2008) and Policies 1 (Climate Change), 4 (Employment Provision and Economic Development) and 10 (Design and Enhancing Local Identity) of the Gedling Borough Aligned Core Strategy (2014).

 

Notes to Applicant

 

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.

 

I bring your attention to Carlton Footpath 22 which runs alongside the south eastern boundary and is the access road to the site. The availability of the footpath should not be affected or obstructed in any way by the proposed development at this location unless subject to appropriate diversion or closure orders. The Rights of Way Office should be consulted in any re-surfacing or proposed structure issues. Developers are also made aware of potential path users in the area who should not be impeded or endangered in any way.

 

For any new connection(s), into the public sewer or the reuse of an existing sewer connection(s), you will need to apply under Section 106 Water Industry Act 1991 as amended by the Water Act 2003. Severn Trent New Connection Team currently processes Section 106 applications and can be contacted on 0800 707 6600 for an application pack and guidance notes (or visit www.stwater.co.uk). Applications to make such connections should be made separately from any application for adoption of the related sewers under Section 104 Water Industry Act 1991 as amended by the Water Act 2003.

 

Planning Statement - The Borough Council has worked positively and proactively with the applicant in accordance with paragraphs 186 to 187 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

Advice regarding travel plans can be obtained from the Transport Strategy Section at Trent Bridge House, Fox Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 6BJ,  contact transport.strategy@nottscc.gov.uk

 

The development makes it necessary to alter the vehicular access arrangement over the footway of the private road no. 2. These works shall be constructed to the satisfaction of the owners of the road. You should therefore contact the owners as this is not highway maintained at public expense.
