17/05625/FUL Land between 18 & 19 Avils Lane, Lower Stanton St Quintin, SN14 6BY

Minutes:

Gil Schwenk, Paul Craven and Murray Walker spoke in objection to the application.

 

Mr Vitale and Charles Manning spoke in favour of the application.

 

Cllr John Seale, Stanton St Quinton Parish Council, spoke in objection to the application.

 

The Senior Planning Officer introduced the application for a new dwelling and garage, noting the proposed change of use of a small area of the rear paddock to residential curtilage had been removed from the scheme. The application was recommended for permission, subject to the planning conditions outlined in the report. A site location plan, photographs and details of the proposed plans was provided. The officer drew attention to the extant outline permission which already existed on the site.

 

The Committee was invited to ask technical questions, in response to which it was confirmed a condition was in place to secure a scheme of drainage on site. Additionally, officers advised permitted development rights could be removed from the garage should the Committee consider it would affect amenity.

 

Members of the public then spoke as detailed above.

 

The local member, Cllr Howard Greenman, spoke in objection to the application.

 

In response to statements from the public and the local member the Senior Planning Officer advised there was a proposed condition on the application to prevent the use of the garage for residential accommodation. It was also highlighted the plans presented at outline stage for point of access were only indicative.

 

Cllrs Hurst and Sturgis declared interests in this item as detailed above.

 

In the debate that followed members agreed that slab levels should be as low as possible since they would be higher than the adjacent plot. Cllr Hutton, seconded by Cllr Sturgis, moved the officer’s recommendation with an amendment to a condition on drainage to ensure that slab levels and drainage be kept as low as possible.

 

Resolved:

 

To GRANT planning permission subject to the following conditions, including an amendment to drainage conditions to require low drainage and slab levels, the wording of which was DELEGATED to officers:

 

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

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 development shall commence on site until full details of boundary planting and/or fences have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The approved boundary treatments shall be carried out in full prior to the end of the first planting season following first occupation of the development, in accordance approved details. The approved boundary treatments shall be retained and maintained as such at all times thereafter.

 

REASON: In the interests of amenity and the character and appearance of the area.

REASON: In the interests of highway safety.

 

6. The access hereby approved shall not be first brought into use until visibility splays have been provided between the edge of the carriageway and a line extending from a point 2.4 metres back from the edge of the carriageway, measured along the centre line of the access, to the points on the edge of the carriageway 43 metres in both directions from the centre of the access in accordance with the approved plans. Such splays shall thereafter be permanently maintained free from obstruction to vision above a height of 1 metre above the level of the adjacent carriageway.

 

REASON: In the interests of highway safety.

 

7. 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), there shall be no additions to, or extensions or enlargements of any building forming part of the development hereby permitted.

 

REASON: In the interests of the amenity of the area and to enable the Local Planning Authority to consider individually whether planning permission should be granted for additions, extensions or enlargements.

 

8. 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 garages, sheds, greenhouses and other ancillary domestic outbuildings shall be erected anywhere on the site on the approved plans.

 

REASON: To safeguard the character and appearance of the area.

 

9. Before the development hereby permitted is first occupied the windows in the southeast elevation shall be glazed with obscure glass only [to an obscurity level of no less than level 3] and the windows shall be maintained with obscure glazing in perpetuity. 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 additional windows shall be inserted into the southeast elevation of the development hereby permitted.

(The wording of this condition was subsequently agreed by officers under delegated authority).

 

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, to ensure that the development can be adequately drained whilst securing a suitable form of development for the locality that does not necessitate an excessively elevated Finished Floor Level above ground level

 

12. INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:

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.

 

13. INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:

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.

 

14. INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:

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.

 

15. INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:

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.
