17/03035/REM - Land at Former Blounts Court Nursery, Studley Lane, Studley, Calne, SN11 9NQ

Minutes:

Member of the public Richard Fitter spoke against the application. Cllr Keith Robbins from Calne Without Parish Council spoke in favour of the application.

 

The Senior Planning Officer introduced the application for the erection of 53 dwellings with public open space and associated infrastructure, approval of reserved matters (scale, layout, external appearance and landscaping) to be in conjunction with outline application 15/10457/OUT. It was identified that the application had been reported to the NAPC Meeting of the 06/09/2017 and had been deferred to seek alterations to the scheme’s design and layout. Officers identified that these matters had, to a large extent, been addressed by the applicant and that further consultation had taken place in this respect. A presentation was delivered, which displayed a site location plan, photographs of the existing site and the proposed plans. The Officer also gave an overview of the planning history relating to the site. Attention was drawn to the Late Observations, in particular the Officer repeated the comments of the highway Officer that the proposal currently proposes no footway and no street lighting, if members were to approve the layout the Wiltshire Council would be unable to adopt any highways within the development. 

 

Councillors were invited to ask technical questions and in response Officers confirmed that issues relating to the proposed positioning of the toucan crossing had been reviewed by external highways experts, along with Wiltshire Council’s Highways Officers, and that this planning application could not dictate the specific location of a pedestrian crossing.

 

Members of the public spoke as detailed above.

 

Cllr Christine Crisp spoke as Local Member in favour of the application. She highlighted that the applicant had listened to residents concerns, and that the design was now acceptable to the Parish Council, and that it would be perverse to refuse the application. 

 

In the debate that followed Cllr Crisp proposed the Officer’s recommendation of approval, with the additional conditions contained in the Late Observations. This was seconded by Cllr Grant and approved unanimously.

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.

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.

 

INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:

Your attention is also drawn to the conditions imposed on the outline planning Permission

 

INFORMATIVE TO APPLICANT:
