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 not payable on the development hereby approved as the development type proposed is zero rated in this location.

 

The proposal makes it necessary to construct vehicular crossings and accesses over a footway of the public highway, together with reinstatement of redundant accesses. These works shall be constructed to the satisfaction of the Highway Authority. You are, therefore, required to contact the County Council's Customer Services to arrange for these works on telephone 0300 500 80 80 to arrange for these works to be carried out.

 

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.

 

The Borough Council has worked positively and proactively with the applicant in accordance with paragraphs 186 to 187 of the National Planning Policy Framework. Discussions have taken place during the consideration of the application to address adverse impacts identified by officers and/or address concerns raised in letters of representation submitted in connection with the proposal. The application for planning permission is subsequently approved subject to conditions.

 

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 applicants 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 we might help decrease levels by incorporating mitigation measures into scheme design as standard. (See http://www.gedling.gov.uk/planningbuildingcontrol/planningpolicy/emerginglocalplan/supplementaryplanningdocuments/ )We would also ask therefore, that the developer considers the commitment to incorporate provision for an EV (electric vehicle) charging point per dwelling; to allow future residents to charge electric/hybrid vehicles into the future. 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.
