The committee considered the written report from the Head of Planning and the recommendation to grant permission.

 

Following questions from the Committee, officers advised the following:

 

·         The s106 agreement would cover issues relating to infrastructure provisions for the local area. A briefing note on infrastructure issues would be delivered at the next Forum meeting to address these concerns.

·         It was in the officers’ opinion that the proposal made best use of space available on the development site and the density of the proposal was acceptable.

·         The open space provisions contained within the proposal were acceptable and allowed the development to remain viable.

·         The Affordable housing contributions were acceptable with a sympathetic spread across the development site.

·         A balanced negotiation had taken place regarding the design and layout of the proposal, allowing for the development to be in line with the Design Code whilst remaining marketable for the developer.

·         All open green spaces would be maintained by a private management company and there would be some time before this responsibility was moved to a Parish Council.

·         It was the intention for the garages to be used to house vehicles when not in use and any material changes of use to garages would require planning consent. Suitably worded conditions were included in the Officer’s recommendation to address communal parking areas.

The committee was then addressed by the following deputees:

 

1.    Ms Amy Ashby, who objected to the Officer’s recommendation for the following reasons:

a.    The proposal sought to remove a significant amount of open space adjacent to an already existing development, which would have a significant detrimental effect on local residents.

b.    There was insufficient buffer space between this development and adjacent developments. Buffer space was important as it maintained social and ecological well being.

c.    The proposal would have a negative impact on local wildlife by way of it’s layout and design.

2.    Cllr J Watson, who objected to the Officer’s recommendation for the following reasons:

a.    There was a significant number of public objections to the application.

b.    The proposal was a significant departure from the originally submitted plans by way of its density, layout and design.

c.    The density of the proposal raised significant concerns over future developments and higher density proposals.

d.    The northern aspect of the development site was originally proposed as green open space. This was now proposed to be developed.

3.    Cllr Cutler, who objected to the Officer’s recommendation for the following reasons:

a.    Both Parish and Ward Councillors had worked hard to develop a sense of community for the new developments in the local area.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 9.
