The attached permission is for development which will involve building up to, or close to, the boundary of the site.  Your attention is drawn to the fact that if you should need access to neighbouring land in another ownership in order to facilitate the construction of the building and its future maintenance you are advised to obtain permission from the owner of the land for such access before beginning your development.

 

Notwithstanding any planning permission if any highway forming part of the development is to be adopted by the Highways Authority the new roads and any highway drainage will be required to comply with the Nottinghamshire County Council's current highway design guidance and specification for roadworks, the 6CsDG.

 

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.

 

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 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.

 

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

 

The Advanced Payments Code in the Highways Act 1980 applies and under Section 219 of the Act payment will 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. Therefore, 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. Correspondence to the Highway Authority should be addressed to: TBH - NCC Highways (Development Control, Floor 9), Nottinghamshire County Council, County Hall, Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 7QP.

 

In order to carry out the off-site works required you will be undertaking work in the public highway which is land subject to the provisions of the Highways Act 1980 (as amended) and therefore land over which you have no control. In order to undertake these works you will need to enter into an agreement under Section 278 of the Act. Correspondence to the Highway Authority should be addressed as above.

 

The proposed off-site highway works referred to in condition 7 require a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) to be enforceable. The developer should note that the TRO can be made on behalf of the developer by VIA in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council at the expense of the developer. This is a separate legal process and the Applicant should contact the Highway Improvements Team on 0300 500 8080 for details.

 

The applicant is advised to safeguard the land that is required for future development to avoid prejudicing access to the site.

 

The Borough Council requests that the applicant considers incorporating provision for residential dwellings (with dedicated parking) to have dedicated outside electric power points, to allow residents to charge electric/hybrid vehicles into the future (see IET Code of Practice for EV Charging Equipment Installation). Also, consideration should be given to the installation of Low NOx Boilers: DEFRA, in their document entitled 'improving air quality in the UK' - Tackling nitrogen dioxide in our towns and cities' Dec 2015, are keen to encourage further use of low NOx boilers both in domestic and commercial premises.
