1. Application -23/00032/FUL: Creation of temporary construction access from Roman Road in connection with the Manydown development site, including widening and alterations to existing highway, along with other associated works including drainage, landscaping and utilities works. Site: Land To The West Of Roman Road Basingstoke Hampshire

 

The Committee considered the report set out on pages 55 to 96 of the agenda with the further material set out on the addendum sheet and other matters discussed at the meeting.

 

The Committee discussed the proposed application and expressed their concern over the 40 mph speed limit along Roman Road especially with the additional construction traffic.

 

It was acknowledged that although Members would like to see a reduction to 30 mph and some Members would like an alternative design.  However, the Committee had to determine the application that was before them which was technically sound and would not stand up to scrutiny from an Inspector.

 

By opening two parcels of land, it would speed up housing delivery.

 

 

The Committee requested that informatives be included in the application to seek a reduction in the speed limit to 30 mph.  Details on the onsite management of the traffic to and from the site to include the queuing of HGV’s within the site, monitoring the road surface and continual consultation with the residents.

 

RESOLVED that:  the application be APPROVED subject to the conditions listed below and for the following reasons:

 

Reasons for Approval

 

1          The development would facilitate the phased delivery of an allocated housing site that will contribute to housing land position. The development manages construction traffic to allow the phased delivery of the development in accordance with the requirements of the Outline Planning Permission (17/00818/OUT). As such the development complies with Policy SS3 and the Manydown Development Brief Supplementary Planning Document (December 2016).

 

2          The development would not cause an adverse impact on highway safety or operation of the local highway network. The development enables the streamlining of the construction of the development across this linear site, reducing elongated construction programmes and enable efficient delivery, reducing the impact on both existing and future residents. As such the proposal complies with Policies CN9 and EM10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029

 

3          Appropriate drainage (surface water) can be provided for the development and can be controlled through planning conditions and other legislation to ensure that there would be no risk to property or the environment. The proposal accords with the Policies CN6 and EM7 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

 

4          The delivery of the development approved by the Outline Planning Permission (17/00818/OUT) will be visible to existing and future residents. The development reduces the conflict between construction traffic and future residents and allows the phasing of delivery and non-housing infrastructure (such as schools and open space) for the benefit of existing and future residents. The use of conditions that align with the existing conditions relating to timings for construction related works across the site will ensure that more sensitive times of the day and week are protected to minimise the impact of the approved development during construction phases. With the imposition of such conditions the development complies with Policy EM10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

 

5          Subject to appropriate conditions, the proposed development would not cause any adverse impact on biodiversity and as such the proposal is considered to be in accordance with Policy EM4 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029 and the Landscape, Biodiversity and Trees Supplementary Planning Document (December 2018).

 

6          Subject to appropriate conditions the impact on heritage assets (archaeological) can be addressed and the public benefit of the delivery of the development approved by the outline planning permission is considered to balance the less than substantial harm caused. As such the proposal accords with the Policy EM11 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

 

7          Subject to appropriate conditions, the proposed development would not cause any adverse impact on landscape character and visual impact and as such the proposal is considered to be in accordance with Policies EM1 and EM10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029 and the Landscape, Biodiversity and Trees Supplementary Planning Document (December 2018).

 

8          The development is of a type not considered suitable for permanent retention and conditions are proposed that require its removal in an appropriate time scale as such the development accordance Policies CN9 and EM10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

             1.3 The applicant's attention is drawn to the fact that the Local Planning Authority has a period of up to eight weeks to determine details submitted in respect of a condition or limitation attached to a grant of planning permission. It is likely that in most cases the determination period will be shorter than eight weeks, however, the applicant is advised to schedule this time period into any programme of works. A fee will be required for requests for discharge of any consent, agreement, or approval required by a planning condition. The fee chargeable is £116 or £34 where the related permission was for extending or altering a dwelling house or other development in the curtilage of a dwelling house. A fee is payable for each submission made regardless of the number of conditions for which approval is sought. Requests must be made using the standard application form (available online) or set out in writing clearly identifying the relevant planning application and condition(s) which they are seeking approval for.

             In such ways the Council has demonstrated a positive and proactive manner in seeking solutions to problems arising in relation to the planning application.

 

3.         The Borough Council declared a Climate Emergency during 2019 formally making this declaration at the meeting of Cabinet in September 2019. This recognises the need to take urgent action to reduce both the emissions of the Council's own activities as a service provider but also those of the wider borough. In this respect, the Council is working with consultants at present to identify appropriate actions to achieve the targets that have been set. Beyond the requirements of any conditions that may be applicable to this planning permission and the current planning policy framework, the applicant is encouraged to explore all opportunities for implementing the development in a way that minimises impact on climate change. Where this in itself might require separate permission applicants can contact the council for advice through the following link: https://www.basingstoke.gov.uk/before-making-a-planning-application. For information more generally on the Climate Emergency please visit: https://www.basingstoke.gov.uk/climateemergency.

Any works within the highway must be approved by S278 Agreement, details of which can be found at https://www.hants.gov.uk/transport/developers/constructionstandards.

 

5.         At the Development Control Committee meeting on 12th April 2023 the Members stated that they encouraged / supported the applicant to work with Hampshire County Council and Hampshire Constabulary to get the speed of Roman Road / Roman Way reduced to 30mph.

The Committee considered the report set out on pages 97 to 138 of the agenda together with the further material set out on the addendum sheet and other matters discussed at the meeting.

 

The Committee discussed the proposed application and thought that the access would provide free flow of traffic on the site which would be beneficial to the existing road network.

3. Application – 20/02267/FUL: Erection 1 no. 4 bed dwelling on existing garden land. Site: 1 South View Cottages  Twinley Lane Freefolk RG28 7QS

 

The Committee considered the report set out on pages 139 to 164 of the agenda together with the further material set out on the addendum sheet and other matters discussed at the meeting.

 

The Committee discussed the proposed application and it was believed that the concerns raised by the Landscape Officer could not be supported. As the dwelling would be located within the existing garden of the host property which already had a defined residential character.

 

There would be a net gain of biodiversity on the site especially with the construction of a wildlife pond.

 

Although the site falls within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) some Members thought that the dwelling was modest and would be sited low in the landscape and well screened.

 

There was a difference of opinion as to the level of harm caused to the AONB.

 

RESOLVED that:  the application be APPROVED subject to the conditions listed below and for the following reasons

 

Reasons for Approval

 

1          In the absence of an up-to-date development plan, the proposed development would deliver housing which would contribute towards mitigating against the overall shortfall of supply as well as providing economic, social and environmental benefits.  In the planning balance, and applying a presumption in favour of sustainable development, it is not considered that the impact of the development would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits when the policies of the National Planning Policy Framework (July 2021) as a material planning consideration are taken as a whole. The proposal is considered to represent a sustainable form of development. The proposal is therefore in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (July 2021) and Policy SD1 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

 

2          The proposal would not result in the erection of a dwelling in an isolated location within the countryside and the proposal is considered to represent a sustainable form of development. The proposal is therefore in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (July 2021) and Policies SS6a and SD1 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

 

3          The proposed dwelling would be of an appropriate design and siting, would relate to surrounding development and would not result in significant impacts on the local landscape character, scenic quality of the area or wider North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Beauty. As such the proposal complies with Section 15 of the National Planning Policy Framework (July 2021), Policies EM1 and EM10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029 and the Design and Sustainability Supplementary Planning Document (2018) and Policies LD2 and LD3 of the Whitchurch Neighbourhood Development Plan 2014 to 2029

 

4          The development would not result in an undue loss of privacy or cause undue overlooking, overshadowing, overbearing or noise and disturbance impacts to neighbouring properties and as such complies with Policies EM10 and EM12 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

 

5          The development would not cause an adverse impact on highway safety, subject to adequate parking being provided to serve the development.  As such the proposal would comply with the National Planning Policy Framework (July 2021), Policies CN9 and EM10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029, Policy TR1 of the Whitchurch Neighbourhood Development Plan 2014 to 2029 and the Parking Supplementary Planning Document (2018)

 

6          The proposed development would not cause any adverse impacts to onsite and offset biodiversity and as such the proposal is considered to be in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (July 2021), Policy EM4 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029 and Policy LD2 of the Whitchurch Neighbourhood Development Plan 2014 to 2029 and the Landscape, Biodiversity and Trees Supplementary Planning Document (December 2018).

The Committee considered the report set out on pages 165 to 196 of the agenda together with the further material set out on the addendum sheet and other matters discussed at the meeting.

 

The Committee discussed the proposed application and concern was expressed to the rising height of the land.

5. Application – 21/03332/FUL: Erection of 3 no. detached dwellings with garages, parking and associated landscaping following the demolition of existing stables/barn. Site: West View Farm Baughurst Road Baughurst RG26 5LL

 

The Committee considered the report set out on pages 197 to 235 of the and other matters discussed at the meeting.

 

The Committee discussed the proposed application and referred to the planning history for the site.  It was acknowledged that a dwelling had recently been allowed on appeal to the immediate north of the application number 20/00578/FUL.  

 

It was noted that an appeal for 1 dwelling to the west of the application site application number 18/03128/FUL had been dismissed by the Planning Inspector and a further application for 2 dwellings to the northern side of West View Farm House application number 19/02255/FUL had recently been refused by the Local Planning Authority.

 

Some Members believed that the proposal for 3 dwellings would result in an overdevelopment of the site which was situated outside the settlement boundary.

 

Concern was raised that the application site was situated within the Detailed Emergency Planning Zone (DEPZ) surrounding the Aldermaston Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE).

 

Concern was raised on the negative impact to the neighbouring properties from the extra traffic generated.

 

It was thought the development was harmful to the character of the area through an urbanisation in the countryside.

 

RESOLVED that:  the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

Reason for Refusal

 

1          The development would result in an overdevelopment of the site and would have an urbanising impact of the rural character of the area as a result of the introduction of domestic built form and associated paraphernalia. The proposed development would therefore result in unacceptable adverse impacts on the landscape character and visual amenity of the area and as such would be contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (July 2021), Policies SS6, EM1, and EM10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029, the Design and Sustainability Supplementary Planning Document (2018) and the Landscape, Biodiversity and Trees Supplementary Planning Document.

            Existing Plans & Elevations; P399-0822/PA/001          

            Proposed Plans & Elevations; P399/0822/PA/002 Rev B       

                       

            REASON:  For the avoidance of doubt and in the interests of proper planning.

 

2          The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of 3 years from the date of this planning permission.

           

            REASON:  To comply with Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and to prevent an accumulation of unimplemented planning permissions.

 

3          The materials to be used in the construction of the external surfaces of the development hereby permitted shall match, in type, colour and texture to those on the existing building and on submitted plans and application form.   

 

            REASON:  In the interests of visual amenity and in accordance with Policy EM10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

 

Informative(s):-

 

1.         1.1 The applicant's attention is drawn to the fact that the above conditions (if any), must be complied with in full, failure to do so may result in enforcement action being instigated.

             1.2  This permission may contain pre-commencement conditions which require specific matters to be submitted and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority before a specified stage in the development occurs.  This means that a lawful commencement of the approved development CANNOT be made until the particular requirements of the pre-commencement conditions have been met.

             1.3  The applicant's attention is drawn to the fact that the Local Planning Authority has a period of up to eight weeks to determine details submitted in respect of a condition or limitation attached to a grant of planning permission.  It is likely that in most cases the determination period will be shorter than eight weeks, however, the applicant is advised to schedule this time period into any programme of works.  A fee will be required for requests for discharge of any consent, agreement, or approval required by a planning condition.  The fee chargeable is £116 or £34 where the related permission was for extending or altering a dwelling house or other development in the curtilage of a dwelling house.  A fee is payable for each submission made regardless of the number of conditions for which approval is sought.  Requests must be made using the standard application form (available online) or set out in writing clearly identifying the relevant planning application and condition(s) which they are seeking approval for.

 

2.         In accordance with paragraph 38 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) in dealing with this application, the Council has worked with the applicant in the following positive and creative manner:-

            

             seeking further information following receipt of the application;

             considering the imposition of conditions and or the completion of a s.106 legal agreement (in accordance with paragraphs 55-58).

            

             In this instance:

            

             the application was acceptable as submitted and no further assistance was required.

            

             In such ways the Council has demonstrated a positive and proactive manner in seeking solutions to problems arising in relation to the planning application.

 

3.         The Borough Council declared a Climate Emergency during 2019 formally making this declaration at the meeting of Cabinet in September 2019. This recognises the need to take urgent action to reduce both the emissions of the Council's own activities as a service provider but also those of the wider borough. In this respect, the Council is working with consultants at present to identify appropriate actions to achieve the targets that have been set. Beyond the requirements of any conditions that may be applicable to this planning permission and the current planning policy framework, the applicant is encouraged to explore all opportunities for implementing the development in a way that minimises impact on climate change. Where this in itself might require separate permission applicants can contact the council for advice through the following link: https://www.basingstoke.gov.uk/before-making-a-planning-application.
