Minutes:

The Committee received a presentation from the Case Officer which set out the issues in respect of the application. The purpose of the report was to assess the merits of the application against the relevant national and local development plan policies and other material considerations and to consider a recommendation that permission be granted, subject to the prior completion of a Section 106 legal agreement and planning conditions.  He reported that Cranborne Chase & West Wiltshire Downs AONB had recently withdrawn their objection to the proposal on the grounds of visual and landscape impacts following some negotiation which led the officer to recommend an amendment to the published wording of condition 18 and to expand on the reason for the condition to make reference to the AONBs dark skies status and to secure the appropriate environmental zone standards for all external lighting within the scheme.

 

 

Members then had the opportunity to ask technical questions after which they heard a statement from Mr Chris Minors, the applicant, Persimmon Homes (Wessex) in support of the proposal.

 

Members then heard the views of Cllr Pip Ridout and Cllr Tony Jackson, the local Members, who were generally in support of the application and stressed the need for the new link road connecting Victoria Road and the Redrow estate to be delivered as part of the first phase of the development and sought to secure a local resident point of contact and adherence to the terms set out within the condition covering the need for a construction traffic management plan.  The Case Officer advised the Committee that conditions 8, 9 and 14 would address these matters.

 

Members sought clarification about the bus strategy (referenced under the summarised s106 heads of terms) and the proposed attenuation basins and pond which formed a key part of the applicant’s drainage strategy and asked about potential landscaping and the necessary management to avoid them becoming silted up, muddy and producing foul smells.  The Case Officer pointed out that the S106 would require bespoke clauses to address the need for a bus strategy to be agreed through negotiation with the bus network manager (employed by Wiltshire Council) as well having direct liaison with bus providers; and that the s106 would require clauses covering the setting up of a management company to be fully responsible for the management and maintenance of the SUDs infrastructure. Members also sought to include an additional planning informative to secure the provision of swift bricks, bat boxes and encourage the developer to be sensitive to allowing hedgehogs to freely pass through hedgerows as part of planting up gaps and completing the landscaping scheme.         

 

After some discussion, on the proposal of Cllr Andrew Davis, which was seconded by Cllr Fred Westmoreland,

 

Resolved:

 

To grant planning permission, subject to:-

 

(1)           the completion of a legal agreement under Section 106 of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990 as summarised in paragraph 9.89 of the Case Officer’s report, and

Minutes:

The Committee received a presentation from the Case Officer which set out the issues in respect of the application. The purpose of the report was to consider the proposed development in the context of national guidance and adopted development plan policies and site specific impacts and to consider a recommendation that planning permission be granted subject to the completion of a legal agreement under Section 106 of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990 to meet identified highways requirements within six months of the date of the Committee resolution and conditions. The Case Officer drew attention to a late representation received from Langley Burrell Parish Council and Langley Burrell Residents’ Association, which had been circulated to members of the Committee, drawing attention to certain areas of concern. The Case Officer confirmed that officers had reviewed and considered the submission and concluded that no new matters were raised that had not been considered and addressed in the report to the Committee. The Case Officer provided a response to concerns and proposals listed in the conclusion of the late representation.

 

 

Members then had the opportunity to ask technical questions after which they heard statements from members of the public as follows, expressing their views concerning the application:-

 

·         Mr David Mannering, representing the Langley Burrell Residents’ Association, spoke in opposition to certain aspects of the application as set out in the late submission.

 

·         Mr Andrew Winstone, the agent, spoke in support of the application.

 

·         Cllr Robert Whitrow, Chairman of Langley Burrell Parish Council spoke in opposition to certain aspects of the application as set out in the late submission.

 

It was noted that Cllr Nick Murry and Cllr Howard Greenman, the local Members, had sent their apologies for not attending due to prior commitments.

 

During discussion, Members considered requirements and provision of the proposed S106 agreement and a possible extension of the bund along the entire northern perimeter of the site and also the planting of a tree screen but after hearing from the Case Officer considered that the current arrangements were adequate.

 

Members also considered the design of the double roundabout system and considered that this would improve the flow of traffic.

 

After some discussion, on the proposal of Cllr Tony Trotman, which was seconded by Cllr Fred Westmoreland, 

 

Resolved:

 

To grant planning permission, subject to:-

 

(1)          The completion of a legal agreement under Section 106 of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990/planning obligation to secure Highways provisions with in six months of the date of this resolution.  In the event of the applicant declining to enter into an agreement within this timeframe to refuse permission for the following reason:-

 

The proposed development without the required planning obligation fails to deliver the necessary highways works and enhancements required to secure a safe and appropriate development and thereby conflicts with Wiltshire Core Strategy (Jan 2015) CP3 CP34(ix) CP57 (ix) CP60 CP61 CP62; and paragraphs 11 and 108 (b) 109 110 of the National Planning Policy Framework (July 2018)
