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.

 

The matter of the future ownership of the open space area by SCC, which had not been finalised in an agreement was discussed. The Officer confirmed that

usually, the S106 Legal Agreement would take care of public open space, however if Committee wished, then the conditions could be amended to include something that prevented the land being built on in the future.

 

The Committee suggested that SCC enter into discussion with the developer on the matter of the open space.

 

A question was raised around tree planting near to the archaeological site, and whether it may interfere with any archaeological finds. The Officer confirmed that condition 19 covered that aspect.

 

The Committee then voted on the motion of Approval subject to the conditions as set out in the report and additionally in the late correspondence.

 

It was;

REASON: In the interests of achieving sustainable drainage

 

 

 

INFORMATIVE

 

Archaeology

 

As the applicant/developer is aware, the site contains sensitive archaeology. Consequently, appropriate care needs to be taken when developing this site.

 

The programme of archaeological work should comprise the following elements:


i) Prior to the commencement of development, the detailed archaeological investigation of areas of archaeological interest identified by the exploratory archaeological investigation and that will be impacted by the proposed development. This will include areas of the prehistoric field systems and enclosures identified by the exploratory trial trenching in the area of residential development, the trackway that lies along the proposed access road, and areas closest to the Saxon cemetery to ensure that any outlying graves are identified and recorded. The programme of archaeological fieldwork may also include archaeological monitoring during development and landscaping works.

ii) A programme of assessment, analysis, reporting, and publication that is commensurate with the significance of the archaeological results. The condition will not normally be fully discharged
until this element of the programme of archaeological work has been satisfactorily
completed.

Appropriate measures should also be put in place to ensure that the ‘area of archaeological interest’ that is to be preserved in situ and that part of the Scheduled Monument that lies within the red line boundary are not subject to any construction activities, such as temporary soil bunds, temporary compounds or access routes, or similar, during the course of the development. The measures should comprise part of the Construction Environment Management Plan.

 

 

Acoustic report

 

In discharging this condition the applicant should engage an Acoustic Consultant. The consultant should carry out a background noise survey and noise assessment according to BS8233: 2014 (or any subsequent version) and demonstrate that internal and external noise levels will not exceed the guideline noise levels contained in Section 7.7 (table 4) of BS8233:2014. The report should also demonstrate that internal maximum noise levels in bedrooms will not normally exceed 45dB LAmax between the hours of 23:00 and 07:00.
