Minutes:

Outline planning application with all matters reserved to construct up to 110 dwellings with access from Lynncroft

Former site of Lynncroft Primary School, Garden Road, Eastwood NG16 3FZ

 

The application was brought before Committee because it was a major development.

 

There were a number of late items considered by the Committee including emails opposing the application because of flooding and comments from the Parks and Green Spaces Manager regarding the use of management companies to maintain the green spaces for the proposed development.

 

Neil Gamble, on behalf of the applicant, addressed the Committee prior to the general debate.

 

The Committee debated the proposal, specifically the promise that all homes on the would have off street parking, which some did not, the problems with flooding in the area and the access to the site.  It was also noted that this development should be seen as an opportunity to have all homes on Garden Road connected to the mains water.

 

The Committee went on to discuss the high volume of traffic that would be caused to go along Lynncroft.  This was a concern as the road was heavily double parked.

 

RESOLVED that planning permission be granted subject to the following conditions:

 

1.

Application for the approval of any reserved matters shall be

made to the Local Planning Authority before the expiration of ten

years from the date of this outline permission.

 

Reason: In accordance with Section 92 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, as amended by Section 51 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

 

2.

The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of two years from the date of approval of the last of the reserved matters to be approved.

 

Reason: In accordance with Section 92 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, as amended by Section 51 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

 

3.

This outline permission relates to the Site Location Plan received by the Local Planning Authority on 03.12.20.

 

Reason: For the avoidance of doubt.

 

4.

Before any development is commenced detailed drawings and particulars showing the following (the 'Reserved Matters') shall be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority:

a) the scale, layout and external appearance of the dwellings;

b) the means of access and parking provision within the site; and

c) the landscaping treatment of the site.

 

The development shall be carried out strictly in accordance with the approved details.

 

Reason: The application was submitted in outline only and to ensure that the details of the development are acceptable to the Local Planning Authority.

 

5.

Construct 22 dwellings

Minutes:

Construct 22 dwellings

Land south of 50 Pinfold Road, Newthorpe, Nottinghamshire, NG16 2FT

 

This application was called before Committee by Councillor M Handley.

 

The Committee considered the late item comprised of an email regarding flooding.

 

Keith Baker, objecting and Clive Bennetts, objecting, addressed the Committee prior to the general debate.

 

The Committee gave consideration to all representations and the debate that followed focused on the increase in the existing planning permission for 15 dwelling to 22 in the proposal being too much for the site.  There was also concern regarding the impact on neighbour amenity on Baldwin Street as these properties were bungalows.

 

The debate progressed to the concerns raised by the highway authority regarding the roads on the development not be of a standard to be adopted.  There was a discussion about the safety of pedestrians, the installation and maintenance of street lighting and the issues with management companies.  There were also concerns about the layout of the proposed development.

 

RESOLVED, unanimously, that planning permission be refused, with the precise wording of the refusal to be delegated to the Chair of Planning Committee in agreement with the Head of Planning and Economic Development.

 

Refusal wording

 

The proposal constitutes an over intensive development of the site and by virtue of the close proximity and single storey nature of the dwellings located on Baldwin Street, the proposal would lead to overbearing, overshadowing and overlooking issues upon the immediate neighbouring properties located on Baldwin Street, to the detriment of their residential amenity. Furthermore, due to the internal roads being private, the proposed development would have a detrimental impact upon the residential amenity of future occupiers of the proposed dwelling through future maintenance of the roads.

 

Reasons

         

Accordingly, the proposal is contrary to the aims of Policy 10 of the Broxtowe Aligned Core Strategy (2014) and Policy 17 of the Part 2 Local Plan (2019), and there are no other material considerations that justify treating this proposal as an exception to these policies.

It was requested that this proposal be considered by Planning Committee by Councillor L A Lally. 

 

There were no late items for the Committee to note.

 

Councillor P Lally, Ward Member addressed the Committee prior to the general debate.

 

The Committee considered the application with particular reference to neighbour amenity negative impact on the community, increased traffic and impact on car parking.

 

RESOLVED that planning permission be refused, with the precise wording of the refusal to be delegated to the Chair of Planning Committee in agreement with the Head of Planning and Economic Development.

 

Refusal wording

 

The change of use would lead to an intensification of the site due to the number of residents occupying the dwelling which would have a detrimental impact on surrounding neighbours, the character of the area and result in parking problems. 

 

Reason

 

This would be contrary to the aims of Policy 17 of the Part 2 Local Plan (2019) and Policy 10 of the Broxtowe Aligned Core (2014) and the NPPF (2021).
