Public Participation

Philip Saunders (Agent) spoke in support of the application

 

Late correspondence had been circulated at the meeting, which included a series of responses from Statutory Consultees, and additional conditions, which were summarised at the start of the presentation.

 

The application was a revised proposal, following deferral at the meeting on 3 February 2022.

 

The Planning Team Leader, Richard Hughes presented the revised application which was for the erection of 86 dwellings (reduced from 95) together with garages, car barns, and refuse/cycle stores. Lay out gardens and erect means of enclosure. Creation of new vehicular access to Odstock Road. Lay out internal roads, including drives and pavements. Provision of associated public open space, play areas and landscape planting.

 

The application was recommended for Approval with conditions as set out in the report attached to the agenda and additional conditions, as summarised by the Officer.

 

Members then had the opportunity to ask technical questions of the Officer, where it was clarified that other than the layout and numbers of dwellings have there been any other changes to the design of the dwellings, there had been some minor changes to some of the proposed materials.

 

Clarity on the percentage of affordable dwellings on the revised application to the previous application was given. The Officer confirmed that the changes amounted to approximately 9 dwellings less, however the percentage of the total number remained the same.

 

Members of the public as detailed above, then had the opportunity to speak on the application. The Agent outlined the changes which had been made to address the reasons for refusal at the previous meeting and noted that Salisbury City Council (SCC) had expressed an interest in adopting the open space land if approved.

 

It was also noted that all of the Statutory Consultees were now in approval of the application.

 

The SCC representative spoke in support of the application and applauded the level of alterations the applicant had made to alleviate previous concerns and supported the provision of additional bat boxes.

 

Local Member, Cllr Sven Hocking, spoke to the application noting that the scale had been reduced, with a reduction in dwellings from the area nearest the access and tree line. He felt that the applicant had listened to and looked at all of the issues previously raise and taken all concerns into account and thanked them for their efforts. He also noted the support of SCC.

 

Cllr Hocking then moved the motion of Approval in line with Officer recommendations.

 

This was seconded by Cllr Britton.

 

The Committee was invited to discuss the application, the main points included reference to the merit of deferring the application, in that a collaborative approach had produced a scheme which addressed the previous concerns and was a benefit to the community.

 

A question was raised on whether there needed to be additional conditions to safeguard elements around tree planting or swift blocks, however the Officer clarified that the conditions set out in the report and late correspondence, were sufficient.

APPLICATION NUMBER: PL/2022/00133 - Gardners Cottage, Pound Street, Ebbesbourne Wake

Proposed alterations and extension to existing dwelling.

Minutes:

Public Participation

Lisa Jackson (Agent) spoke in objection to the application

Annie Parnell (Chalke Valley Preservation Society) spoke in objection to the application

David Warder spoke in objection to the application

Andy Turner (Agent) spoke in support of the application.

Paul Sampson (Chairman) spoke on behalf of Ebbesbourne Wake Parish Council

 

The Officer summarised the late correspondence which had been circulated at the meeting. This included an update on works which had already been carried out on the site, including the installation of gates and the formation of a gravelled parking and turning area at the front of the dwelling and the associated Highways response and amended conditions.

 

The Planning Team Leader, Richard Hughes presented the application which was for the proposed alterations and extension to an existing dwelling.

 

The existing dwelling had been built in around the 1960s. Presentation slides indicating the street scene were explained, in particular the height difference between the current single storey property to the neighbouring dwellings which ranged in type, size and height.

 

It was explained that the proposed alterations and extension would retain the same footprint, with an increase in height of up to 7.5m to the ridge of the new roof. The extension was shown on the presentation to be at the rear of the property.

 

The Officer noted concerns raised around drainage and clarified that the drainage issue in the area appeared to be ground water related, and as such it was not felt that extending the dwelling would make an increased difference to the drainage for the area, when there was already a dwelling on the site.

 

The Officer also highlighted that there had been suggestions that a bat survey should be carried out. He went on to explain that when assessing an application for alterations and an extension to an existing dwelling, a foundation checklist was used which indicated that a bat survey was not required. However, the Officers had asked the application to carry out a bat survey and in response had received photographic evidence detailing inside the existing roof void, which was noted as being of fairly new construction. It was the Officers opinion therefore that there was no need to ask for a bat survey in this instance.

 

The application was recommended for Approval with conditions as set out in the report attached to the agenda and the late correspondence.

 

Material considerations were:

 

·         Principle of development

·         Design, impact on Conservation Area/listed buildings and the AONB

·         Impact on amenity

·         Parking/Highways Impact;

·         Ecological Impact/River Avon Catchment Area/drainage/flooding

 

The report noted that there had been 63 letters of objection, in addition, the Parish Council also object to the proposal.

 

Members then had the opportunity to ask technical questions of the Officer, where it was clarified that the report when first published had contained an erroneous paragraph, under the conclusion section, which mentioned refusal, however in the Recommendation section the correct text was included and detailed that the application was recommended for approval with conditions by Officers.

Proposed replacement dwelling (revised design) and erect detached garage

Supporting documents:

Minutes:

Public Participation

Charlie Brinton (Applicant) spoke in support of the application

James U’Dell (Agent) spoke in support of the application

 

The Planning Officer drew attention to the late correspondence which was circulated at the meeting. It included a statement from a neighbour, advising no objection providing the screening proposed was put in place. In addition, the Applicant had provided photos showing the existing living conditions.

 

The Planning Team Leader, Richard Hughes, presented the application which was for the proposed replacement dwelling (revised design) and erection of a detached garage.

 

The application was recommended for Refusal based on the policies of the Development Plan, and the material considerations listed below and set out in the report attached to the agenda.

 

·         Principle of development

·         Scale, design, impact to character and appearance of Cranborne Chase and West

·         Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

·         Residential amenity

·         Highway issues

·         Trees

·         Ecology

·         Other issues raised

 

The overall height of the development was reported as approximately 6.8m.

 

Members then had the opportunity to ask technical questions of the Officer. A question was asked on whether the rear west elevation, which was shown to have a large, glazed area, differed from the previous approved scheme. The Officer was not able to discern from the two plans what the difference was to the glazed area.

 

Members of the public as detailed above, then had the opportunity to speak on the application.

 

Some of the main points included that the applicant and his family had lived and worked in the village for the last 7 years and had been working proactively with neighbours, the parish council and the AONB since a previously approved application in 2018, to produce a suitable revision.

 

There was no significant change to footprint of the previously approved building, however the design was considered to have been dramatically improved.

 

It was noted that the proposed landscaping would have no negative affect

And was not objected to by the Landscape expert.

It was reported that there had been 8 letters of support from members of the village and there was not adverse effect on the amenity.

 

The Agent clarified the earlier asked question regarding the glazing, confirming that it remained the same as the previous application, previously approved.

 

Local Member, Cllr Bridget Wayman, spoke to the application noting that

She had called in the application because she saw no reason for it to be refused, noting that the previous application which was approved was for 6 bedrooms.

 

It was noted that the Parish Council had not objected and in fact supported the family remaining in the village in a dwelling that was suitable for them.

 

The current roof line was reportedly hardly visible from approach and that the opposite dwelling was 40m away.

 

Reference to the dormer windows was made, noting that they would permit natural light into the house. One of these windows was to a bathroom so could be conditioned to be obscured if screening and distance were not considered adequate.

Minutes:

Public Participation

Caron Merritt spoke in objection to the application

Dane Richardson spoke in objection to the application

Mark Doodes (Agent) spoke in support to the application

David Burke (Chairman) spoke on behalf of Netheravon parish council

 

Late correspondence was circulated at the meeting and outlined by the Officer, which included reference to revised drawings included in the presentation slides, which showed a further 0.5m set back of the dwellings from the parking space, as requested by Highways. Also included were alterations to the internal floor plans and revised conditions.

 

The Planning Officer, Julie Mitchell, presented the application which was for the erection of one pair of semi-detached two storey dwellings and associated infrastructure.

 

The site location was shown as being outside of the settlement boundary, however the Officer noted that the land was on the corner of and adjoined the settlement boundary and had been previously removed from within the boundary.

 

The site was at the junction of the 50mph A345 and the 30mph Pigott Close. The curve in the A345 road was noted as causing limited visibility when exiting Piggott Close. As detailed in the late correspondence, Highways had recommended a 2.4m wide no development zone to maintain visibility.

 

The application was recommended for Approval with conditions as set out in the report attached to the agenda and further in the late correspondence.

 

Material considerations were listed as:

 

·         Principle of development

·         Character of the area

·         Residential amenity

·         Highway issues

·         Ecology

·         Other issues raised

 

Members then had the opportunity to ask technical questions of the Officer, where it was clarified that the plot had previously been in the settlement boundary, however during a review in the 2020 Housing Site Allocations Plan, the parish council had made representation for the site to be removed.

 

The Officer clarified that despite the site not being in the settlement boundary, she had made the judgement that it was clearly not open countryside and therefore deemed that development on the site was acceptable in principle.

 

Members of the public as detailed above, then had the opportunity to speak on the application.

 

Some of the main points included strong concerns associated with the safety of the road junction between Pigotts Close and the A345, with examples of traffic incidents ranging in severity, from minor to fatal.

 

Poor visibility on exiting Pigotts Close due to the curve in the road and the negative impact on visibility the proposed development would have.

 

Concerns relating to increased double parking caused by an additional 2 dwellings and associated road safety issues were noted, along with suggestions of overdevelopment for the size of the plot of land.

 

The Agent noted that there were no objections from the Statutory Consultees, and that the development would provide 2 sustainable dwellings to the area. He noted development on greenfield areas was not ideal however existing properties did not have a right to a view.

 

The Parish Council representative spoke in objection to the application.
