16/11277/FUL- Land adjacent 76 Bryans Close Road, Calne, Wiltshire, SN11 9AD


The Senior Planning Officer introduced the application for the demolition of existing garage and erection of a new dwelling. A presentation was shown which included photographs of existing site, along with diagrams of the proposed build. Attention was drawn towards the sites location in relation to the highway and the positioning of the neighbouring properties window was also noted.


There were no Technical Questions.


There were no public speakers.


The Local Member Cllr Tony Trotman spoke in regard to the application, explaining that since he had called in the application, amendments had been made. He considered the proposals to be squeezed into a small site, although he noted the length of the garden. The Councillor also raised concerns as to reports of near-miss accidents on the bend of the highway, where the proposed development is situated, however noted that the highways officer had raised no objections to the scheme.  


In the debate that followed, some Members emphasised concerns raised as to the potential added hazard to the highway in that area. Members spoke of their own experience of what they described as a busy and fast section of road. However, Members noted the size of the plot and expressed support for the plans, in light of the moderating amendments.


Cllr Peter Hutton proposed to accept the Officer’s recommendation and approve the plans, which was seconded by Cllr Chuck Berry. Councillors then approved the application.



That planning permission is GRANTED, subject to the following conditions:


1 The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.

REASON: To comply with the provisions of Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as amended by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.


2 The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the following approved plans:

CB/C/02/16.A - Proposed Block Plan, Floor Plans & Elevations

Received 31 January 2017

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


3 No development shall commence on site until the exact details and samples of the materials to be used for the external walls and roofs have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. Development shall be carried out in accordance with the approved details.

REASON: The application contained insufficient information to enable this matter to be considered prior to granting planning permission and the matter is required to be agreed with the Local Planning Authority before development commences in order that the development is undertaken in an acceptable manner, in the interests of visual amenity and the character and appearance of the area.


4 No part of the development hereby permitted shall be first occupied until the access, turning area and parking spaces have been completed in accordance with the details shown on the approved plans. The areas shall be maintained for those purposes at all times thereafter.

REASON: In the interests of highway safety.


5 Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 (or any Order revoking or re-enacting or amending that Order with or without modification), no window, dormer window or rooflight, other than those shown on the approved plans, shall be inserted in the northeast elevation of the development hereby permitted.

REASON: In the interests of residential amenity and privacy.



Any alterations to the approved plans, brought about by compliance with Building Regulations or any other reason must first be agreed in writing with the Local Planning Authority before commencement of work.



The applicant should note that the grant of planning permission does not include any separate permission which may be needed to erect a structure in the vicinity of a public sewer. Such permission should be sought direct from Thames Water Utilities Ltd / Wessex Water Services Ltd. Buildings are not normally allowed within 3.0 metres of a Public Sewer although this may vary depending on the size, depth, strategic importance, available access and the ground conditions appertaining to the sewer in question.



The applicant is requested to note that this permission does not affect any private property rights and therefore does not authorise the carrying out of any work on land outside their control. If such works are required it will be necessary for the applicant to obtain the landowners consent before such works commence. If you intend carrying out works in the vicinity of the site boundary, you are also advised that it may be expedient to seek your own advice with regard to the requirements of the Party Wall Act 1996.



Please note that Council offices do not have the facility to receive material samples. Please deliver material samples to site and inform the Planning Officer where they are to be found.



The proposal includes alteration to the public highway. The consent hereby granted shall not be construed as authority to carry out works on the highway. The applicant is advised that a license may be required from Wiltshire’s Highway Authority before any works are carried out on any footway, footpath, carriageway, verge or other land forming part of the highway. Please contact the vehicle access team on telephone 01225 713352 or email vehicleaccess@wiltshire.gov.uk for further details.
