16/08756/FUL Springfield Farm Kington Lane Stanton St Quintin

Minutes:

Andrew Miles spoke in support of the application.

 

The Team Leader introduced the application which was for the change of use of a building and land to Class B8 use, and construction of new vehicular access. It was recommended that planning permission be granted, subject to the conditions outlined in the report. The officer drew attention to the Late Observations and showed the location of the site, photographs of existing buildings, proximity to residential properties and the proposed new access. It was noted that the routing of vehicles accessing the site would be conditioned. Officers drew attention to the site history and identified the existence of Certificates of Lawfulness unrestricted by any conditions which allowed similar uses at the site to that proposed in the application.

 

In response to technical questions the data in respect of anticipated vehicular movements was explained. The officer advised that Highways Engineers was satisfied that the roads could sustain the vehicle use and photographs were shown. It was highlighted that a ‘Certificate of Lawfulness’ was currently in place on the site which meant there was currently no limit on vehicular use. The officer confirmed that the Yard Management Plan and Traffic Management Plan would be included as part of any permission and would be enforceable.

 

Members of the public then spoke as detailed above.

 

The local member, Cllr Howard Greenman, spoke in objection to the application due to the increased vehicular use of the site in comparison to the current occupants, and concern over the enforceability of the conditions.

 

In the debate that followed, Cllr Peter Hutton, seconded by Cllr Sturgis, moved the officer recommendation that planning permission be granted, subject to the conditions outlined in the report.

 

Cllr O’Neill declared an interest in the item due to a personal interest arising from a family member previously being employed by the applicant. The councillor did not participate in the debate or the vote.

 

Members commended that the proposed traffic route would be self-enforcing as it was the route to the M4 motorway, and that the access to the site was in the corner of the village, away from school parking. Other comments expressed some concern as to the impact of traffic to and from the site.
