The applicant should note that notwithstanding any planning permission that ifany highway forming part of the development is to be adopted by the Highways Authority, the new roads and any highway drainage will be required to comply with the Nottinghamshire County Council’s current highway design guidance and specification for roadworks for which there is a fee.

 

a)             The Advanced Payments Code in the Highways Act 1980 applies and under section 219 of the Act payment will be required from the owner of the land fronting a private street on which a new building is to be erected. The developer should contact the Highway Authority with regard to compliance with the Code, or alternatively to the issue of a Section 38 Agreement and bond under the Highways Act 1980. A Section 38 Agreement can take some time to complete. Therefore, it is recommended that the developer contact the Highway Authority as early as possible.

 

b)             It is strongly recommended that the developer contact the Highway Authority at an early stage to clarify the codes etc. With which compliance will be required in the particular circumstance, and it is essential that design calculations and detailed construction drawings for the proposed works are submitted to and approved by the County Council (or District Council) in writing before any work commences on site. Correspondence with the Highway Authority should be addressed to:

Hdc.south@nottscc.gov.uk

 

In order to carry out the off-site works required you will be undertaking work inthe public highway which is land subject to the provisions of the Highways Act 1980 (as amended) and therefore land over which you have no control. In order to undertake the works, you will need to enter into an agreement under Section 278 of the Act for which there is a fee. Please contact: hdc.south@nottscc.gov.uk

 

The deposit of mud or other items on the public highway, and/or the discharge of water onto the public highway are offences under Sections 149 and 151, Highways Act 1980.  The applicant, any contractors, and the owner / occupier of the land must therefore ensure that nothing is deposited on the highway, nor that any soil or refuse etc is washed onto the highway, from the site.  Failure to prevent this may force the Highway Authority to take both practical and legal action (which may include prosecution) against the applicant / contractors / the owner or occupier of the land.  [Where the development site may be accessed by a significant number of vehicles or may be particularly susceptible to material ‘tracking’ off site onto the highway, details of wheel-washing facilities must be provided to and approved by the Highway Authority.]

 

The proposed access/off-site highway works referred to in condition 7 requires a Traffic Regulation Order before the development commences to provide safe access/off-site mitigating works. The developer should note that the Order can be made on behalf of the developer by Via East Midlands in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council at the expense of the developer. This is a separate legal process and the Applicant should contact the Improvements Team on 0300 500 8080 for details.

Outline application to demolish White House Farm and construct up to 250 dwellings, including the provision of new areas of open space, children’s play, landscaping and storm water attenuation, with all matters reserved except for the formation of a vehicular access from the A6096 Shilo Way (Awsworth Bypass) and secondary access from Newtons Lane.

 

Land West of Awsworth (inside The A6096), Including Land Aat Whitehouse Farm, Shilo Way, Awsworth

 

This application sought outline planning permission to construct up 250 dwellings and had been brought to Committee as the Section 106 (S106) contributions are not policy compliant.

 

Members considered the late items for the application which included an additional objection which raised concerns over the planning process and increased pollution.

 

Ms J Neville (applicant) and Mr L Birttle (objecting) addressed the Committee prior to the general debate.

 

Members debated the application and the following comments were amongst those noted:

 

  • The proposal was over intensive for the surrounding area.
  • The proposal would generate more traffic.
  • There were not enough school places for the increased dwellings.
  • The was a need to construct houses in the borough.

 

RESOLVED that the Interim Head of Planning and Economic Development be given delegated authority to grant planning permission subject to:

26/05/2021 - GREEN HOMES GRANT (LOCAL AUTHORITY DELIVERY PHASE 2) ref: 786    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Housing Committee

Made at meeting: 26/05/2021 - Housing Committee

Decision published: 01/06/2021

Effective from: 26/05/2021

Decision:

The Committee noted the Green Homes Grant (Local Authority Delivery Phase 2) and of the proposal which had been submitted to upgrade the energy efficiency of dwellings in the Council owned stock.

 

The Green Homes Grant scheme aims to raise the energy efficiency of low-income and low EPC rated homes, including the worst quality off-gas grid homes, delivering progress towards reducing fuel poverty, the phasing out of high carbon fossil fuel heating and the UK's commitment to net zero by 2050. This accords with Broxtowe’s commitment to become carbon neutral by 2027.

 

RECOMMENDED that Finance and Resources Committee include an additional £724,850 in the 2021/22 capital programme for heating replacements and other energy efficiency works on the Council’s housing stock funded from the Green Homes Grant (LAD Phase 2).
