Reason: To ensure a satisfactory form of development in accordance with Policies DM1 and DM10 of the adopted Site Allocations and Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (2016).

 

16.       No part of the development hereby permitted shall be occupied until such time as vehicular visibility splays of 4.5 metres x 59 metres have been provided at the site access. These shall thereafter be permanently maintained with nothing within those splays higher than 0.6 metres above the level of the adjacent footway/verge/highway.

 

Reason: To afford adequate visibility at the access to cater for the expected volume of traffic joining the existing highway network, in the interests of general highway safety, and in accordance with Policy DM17 of the adopted Site Allocations and Development Management Policies DPD (2016) and Paragraphs 108 and 110 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2019).

Reason: To reduce the possibility of deleterious material being deposited in the highway (loose stones etc.) in the interests of highway safety and in accordance with Policy DM17 of the adopted Site Allocations and Development Management Policies DPD (2016) and Paragraphs 108 and 110 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2019).

Application for approval of Reserved Matters (appearance, landscaping, layout and scale) of application 19/00680/OUT for erection of 168 dwellings.

 

Late items received after preparation of the agenda:

Consultations:-

 

Final comments have been received from LCC Highways who do not object to the proposal subject to conditions.

Appraisal:-

 

The local Highway Authority's advice is that, in its view, the impacts of the development on highway safety would not be unacceptable, and when considered cumulatively with other developments, the impacts on the road network would not be severe. Based on the information provided, the development therefore does not conflict with paragraph 109 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), subject to the conditions.

Recommendation:-

 

Amend conditions 1, 3, 4 and 7 to read as follows:
