Application for residential development of up to 80 dwellings with associated works (outline – access only).

 

‘Late items:’

 

Proposal:- Residential development up to 80 dwellings with associated works (Outline - access only)

 

Appraisal:-

 

A contribution request was made by University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust (UHL) for £40,235.00 towards the gap in the funding created by each potential patient from the development in respect of A&E and planned care. The evidence provided by the UHL is not sufficiently robust to conclude that the CIL Regulation 122 test can be satisfied. Therefore the contribution is not considered to be CIL compliant and will not be sought for this development.

 

A contribution request was made by Desford Parish Council for £75,000.00 towards installing appropriate traffic lights at the Dan's Lane/A47 junction.  The Highway Authority has responded to this request. They state that an analysis of the traffic modelling data demonstrates that the Dan's Lane junction currently operates within capacity. The introduction of development traffic associated with the proposed residential scheme would result in additional queueing of 3 vehicles by 2023. As such, the residual cumulative impact from the proposal on this junction is not considered to be severe in accordance with the NPPF. There are no projects planned to improve this highway junction. Therefore, this contribution would not be considered to be CIL compliant and will not be sought for this development.

 

Recommendation:-

 

The recommendation remains to grant planning permission subject to the details outlined in the original Planning Committee Report.

Minutes:

Application for residential development up to 80 dwellings with associated works (outline – access only)

 

Notwithstanding the officer’s recommendation that permission be granted, it was moved by Councillor Bray and seconded by Councillor R Allen that members be minded to refuse permission due to the harm to the countryside outside of the settlement boundary, contrary to policy DM4, which demonstrably and significantly outweighs the benefits of the scheme. Upon being put to the vote, the motion was CARRIED and it was

 

RESOLVED – members be minded to refuse permission and the application be brought back to a future meeting.

Application for demolition of existing dwelling and the erection of a replacement detached dwelling and detached double garage (revised scheme).

 

‘Late items:’

 

Proposal:- Demolition of existing dwelling and the erection of a replacement detached dwelling and detached double garage (revised scheme)

 

Appraisal:-

 

An additional plan has been submitted providing details of the existing and proposed site and floor slab levels. It is proposed that the replacement dwelling would have the same floor slab level as the existing dwelling to ensure a satisfactory visual impact and no adverse impact on any neighbouring properties. Condition 4 should therefore be amended to refer to the submitted details.

 

Recommendation:-

 

Amend Condition 4 to:

 

The development hereby permitted shall be implemented in accordance with the proposed site and floor slab levels submitted on approved Site Levels Drawing Rev C received by the local planning authority on 25 June 2019.

 

Reason: To ensure that the development has a satisfactory appearance and in the interests of visual amenity in accordance with Policy DM10 of the adopted Site Allocations and Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (2016).

Minutes:

Application for demolition of existing dwelling and the erection of a replacement detached dwelling and detached double garage (revised scheme)

 

Whilst generally in support of the application, some members expressed concern that any additional development on site would constitute overdevelopment and requested that permitted development rights be removed. It was moved by Councillor J Crooks, seconded by Councillor R Allen and

 

RESOLVED

 

(i)            Permission be granted subject to the conditions contained in the officer’s report and late items and an additional condition removing permitted development rights Schedule 2, Part 1 classes A to E;

 

(ii)           The Interim Head of Planning be given delegated powers to determine the final detail of planning conditions.
