1. V/2022/0810, M Hollis, Outline application with all matters reserved for 8 dwellings, Land East of Heathfield Silverhill Lane, Teversal
In accordance with the Council’s Policy for dealing with late matters in relation to planning applications, (Minute No. D4.17, 1993/94 refers), officers proceeded to give a verbal report as to additional comments received in relation to the application as follows:-
Since publication of the Council’s report the agent had submitted a site plan which showed vehicle visibility splays. However, access was not a matter for consideration as part of the application and in any event the point which the visibility splays have been drawn from was only an indicative point of access. A biodiversity metric has also been submitted which provided information relating to habitats on site. However, neither of the details had of yet been assessed or consulted upon.
Adrian Woodhouse, as an Objector, took the opportunity to address the Committee in respect of this matter. As per the agreed process, Members were then offered the opportunity to clarify any points raised during the submissions as required.
It was moved by Councillor Rachel Madden and seconded by Councillor John Smallridge that the officer’s recommendation contained within the report be rejected and planning consent be granted subject to a legal undertaking requiring the planting of 24 heavy standard trees (girth 12-14cm, Height 300-350cm) in addition to on site landscaping, with easy watering systems, off site in locations to be agreed and the following conditions:
(a) The expiration of 3 years from the date of the outline planning permission;
(b) The expiration of 2 years from the final approval of the reserved matters, or in the case of approval on different dates, the final approval of the last such matter to be approved.
Members were asked to note the recent Planning Appeal decisions as outlined in the report and presented with some recent enforcement accomplishments.
that the report be received and noted.
