Declarations of Disclosable Pecuniary or Personal Interests and/or Non-Registrable Interests
Councillor Helen-Ann Smith declared a Non-Registrable Interest in relation to
Application V/2022/0295, Persimmon Homes, Development of 124no. Dwellings, Access, Attenuation Basin and Associated Landscaping and Infrastructure, Land North of Fackley Road, Teversal.

that the minutes of the meeting of the Planning Committee held on 1 November 2023, be received and approved as a correct record subject to a text amendment in respect of interests declared on Application V/2022/0066, Land off Main Road, Jacksdale, as follows:

Members’ Code of Conduct, Councillors Arnie Hankin and Jason

1. V/2023/0219, Mr J Taylor, Dwelling and Associated Works, Land Rear of Cross Road Annesley
It was moved by Councillor Rachel Madden and seconded by Councillor Helen-Ann Smith that the officer’s recommendation contained within the report be rejected and planning consent be refused.
Reasons for rejecting officers’ recommendation:
1. The proposed development would result in a significant visual intrusion and loss of part of designated formal open space as identified in the Ashfield Local Plan Review (2002). The proposed development is unrelated to the retention, enhancement or use of the open space and no replacement provision is proposed it would therefore conflict with policies ST1 and RC3 of the Ashfield Local Plan Review (2002).
2. The proposed development is located within a conservation area. It is considered that the erection of a single 4 bed detached dwelling by reason of its siting, scale and design would be out of character with the general appearance of the area which includes mainly terraced properties located alongside open space and this development would not preserve or enhance the quality and character of the conservation area and would conflict with Policies ST1 and EV10 and HG5(g) of the Ashfield Local Plan Review(2002) and chapter16 Conserving and Enhancing the Historic Environment of the National Planning Policy Framework 2023.
3. The application site is located in close proximity to a 90 degree bend in the highway where Cross Road leads onto Byron Road and forward visibility would be reduced around this bend due to the development of the site and is located in close proximity to the junction of Cross Road with Annesley Cutting where vehicles have difficulty in turning because of the alignment of the roads. It is therefore considered that an increase in traffic is likely to exacerbate existing traffic problems to the detriment of highway safety. It is thus contrary to policies ST1(c) and HG5(e) of the Ashfield Local Plan Review (2002) and paragraph 111 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2023.
For the motion:
Councillors Jamie Bell, Jodine Cronshaw, Samantha Deakin, Arnie Hankin, Rachel Madden, Sarah Madigan, Andy Meakin, John Smallridge and
Against the motion:
