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
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
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:
Ms Amy Ashby, who objected to the Officer’s
recommendation for the following reasons:
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
There was insufficient buffer space between this
development and adjacent developments. Buffer space was important
as it maintained social and ecological well
The proposal would have a negative impact on local
wildlife by way of it’s layout and design.
Cllr J Watson, who objected to the Officer’s
recommendation for the following reasons:
There was a significant number of public objections
to the application.
The proposal was a significant departure from the
originally submitted plans by way of its density, layout and
The density of the proposal raised significant
concerns over future developments and higher density
The northern aspect of the development site was
originally proposed as green open space. This was now proposed to
Cllr Cutler, who objected to the Officer’s
recommendation for the following reasons:
Both Parish and Ward Councillors had worked hard to
develop a sense of community for the new developments in the local
area. Disregarding the objections of these communities to the
proposal would undermine this work.
The proposal had an inappropriate density, leading
to excessive pressure placed upon infrastructure.
The proposal was a
departure from the original plans, leading to creeping
Ms Bryony Stala and Mr
David Lee, who supported the Officer’s recommendation for the
The proposal had undergone several design iterations
in order to make best use of the developable area.
The proposal featured appropriate landscaping, open
space and green spaces, while still being able to deliver a
reasonable number of dwellings.
The proposal was a high quality development which
had a different character and design to other developments,
creating a sense of variety and difference.
The density of the development was due to a higher
number of deliverable houses, whilst also being inline with outline
consent. It was anticipated that other sites would not be able to
deliver a higher number of dwellings and therefore this proposal
would assist in accommodating the drop in deliverable houses
arising from other proposals.
to questions from the committee, the deputees advised that:
· The total number of dwellings to be delivered over phase 13A and 13B was unknown.
· The proposal allowed for enough green open space while still delivering a higher density of houses.
In response to questions from the committee, Officers further advised the following:
· The proposal made best use of the space available.
· The green space provision was appropriate for the size of the development.
· Detail of the refuse strategy and how waste would be collected.
The committee discussed the application in detail together with the views raised by the deputees. Concern was expressed that the layout affordable housing was inappropriate as some dwellings were too far from communal green open space. However the majority of the Committee felt that the layout, character and design of the proposal was acceptable and that it would make a significant contribution to meeting the housing need for both authorities. It was therefore
RESOLVED that the Head of Planning Services for Winchester City Council be authorised to grant permission for Application 17/017772/REM, subject to the following conditions:
01 The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the following approved plans, documents and e mails.

01 Reason: In the interests of clarity and to ensure that the development is carried out in a satisfactory manner.
02 The parking area including the garage shall be provided in accordance with the approved plans before the dwelling is first occupied and thereafter permanently retained and used only for the purpose of accommodating private motor vehicles or other storage purposes incidental to the use of the dwelling house as a residence.
02 Reason: To ensure the permanent availability of parking for the property.
03 The unallocated and visitor car parking spaces shown on the submitted drawing number 170216/SL/PP Revision F shall be retained and made available for parking purposes at all times to all residents and visitors to the development with no physical or legal restriction on who may use such spaces.

04 Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted

01. In accordance with paragraphs 186 and 187 of the NPPF Winchester City Council (WCC) take a positive and proactive approach to development proposals focused on solutions. WCC work with applicants/agents in a positive and proactive manner by;
- offering a pre-application advice service and,
- updating applicants/agents of any issues that may arise in the processing of their application and where possible suggesting solutions.
In this instance the applicant was updated of any issues after the initial site visit.
02. This permission is granted for the following reasons:
The development is in accordance with the Policies and Proposals of the Development Plan set out below, and other material considerations do not have sufficient weight to justify a refusal of the application. In accordance with Section 38(6) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, planning permission should therefore be granted.
03. The Local Planning Authority has taken account of the following development plan policies and proposals:-
Winchester District Local Plan Part 1 – Joint Core Strategy:
SH2 – Strategic Housing Allocation – West of Waterlooville.
Winchester Local Plan Part 2 – Development Management and Site Allocations.
As this is a reserved matters application it does not require assessment against these policies which were adopted after the outline consent had been granted.
04. All building works including demolition, construction and machinery or plant operation should only be carried out between the hours of 0800 and 1800 hrs Monday to Friday and 0800 and 1300 hrs Saturday and at no time on Sundays or recognised public holidays. Where allegations of noise from such works are substantiated by the Environmental Protection Team, a Notice limiting the hours of operation under The Control of Pollution Act 1974 may be served.
05. During Construction, no materials should be burnt on site. Where allegations of statutory nuisance are substantiated by the Environmental Protection Team, an Abatement Notice may be served under The Environmental Protection Act 1990. The applicant is reminded that the emission of dark smoke through the burning of materials is a direct offence under The Clean Air Act 1993.
