Nutrient Neutral Development

The Board to receive an update on the current position, prior to its involvement in scrutinising the Implementation Plan later in the year.

Minutes:

The Planning Policy Manager gave a background to the topic and explained that the Cabinet had agreed a Position Statement which put in place measures to allow applicants to have a Grampian Condition applied in order for construction to continue whilst the Council worked on an Implementation Plan.  The Operations and Place Shaping Board would be involved with the development of the Implementation Plan later in the year.

In response to questions, applicants could currently opt to accept a Grampian Condition if their proposal was not nutrient neutral, or could agree to defer the determination of their application.  If they opted for a Grampian Condition, the development would need to be demonstrated to be nutrient neutral prior to occupation.  It was understood that the market welcomed the information provided by the Council and that the Council was proactively working to find a solution to enable development.

Project Plan - Old Bedhampton Conservation Area pdf icon PDF 189 KB

The Board will receive a briefing on the background to the topic.

 

Following the briefing, the Board will discuss and agree a Project Plan to set the remit for the upcoming ‘Challenge Session’ to be held on 17 July 2019.

Minutes:

The Heritage Team Leader introduced the topic, which would be the subject of a ‘Challenge Session’ at an extraordinary meeting of the Board on 17 July. 

 

The background to the topic was that a local group, Bidbury Mead Friends, had, with the agreement of HBC, commissioned a Conservation Character Appraisal of the Old Bedhampton Conservation Area.  The final draft of this review had been submitted to HBC in October 2018.  Whilst others may carry out an appraisal, only the local planning authority could designate or review Conservation Areas.  Planning Practice Guidance stated that Conservation Areas should be reviewed ‘time to time’ and the last appraisal of the Old Bedhampton Conservation Area had been undertaken in 1994.

 

Heritage Officers agreed with the majority of the review commissioned by Bidbury Mead Friends, but differed in respect of the proposed boundary.  The matter would therefore be debated at the ‘Challenge Session’ with all relevant parties present to inform the Board’s recommendations.

 

The Board agreed the Project Plan, subject to the inclusion of Cllr Milne as a participant.
