Application

 

The Principal Planning Officer recommended approval.

 

The Principal Planning Officer drew members attention to additional objections received as outlined on the ‘late list’. The Principal Planning Officer outlined further representations received following the preparation of the late list which made reference to issues relating to the amended plans which reduced the length of the wall to be reduced in height, issues with the notification provided to objectors of the Development Panel meeting, reference to a water pipe crossing the site and inaccuracies in the submitted plan.

 

The Principal Planning Officer outlined the application and detailed the main issues within the report as follows:

 

  • Principle of development

 

The scale of development proposed for this site in the Key Service Centre of Wigton Policy S5 of the Allerdale Local Plan Part 1 (ALPP1) states that new development will be concentrated within the physical limits of the Key Service Centre. The proposed development site lies outside of, but directly adjacent to, the defined settlement limit for Wigton.

 

Notwithstanding the adoption of the ALPP1 and the spatial strategy contained therein, the defined limits for individual settlements continue to be derived from the Allerdale Local Plan 1999. The LPA is currently in the process of reviewing settlement limits as part of the site allocations process but this development plan document, Allerdale Local Plan (Part 2), is still in the process towards adoption.

 

The council can demonstrate a 5-year supply of housing and therefore the policies for supply of housing contained within the adopted Local Plan are to be considered up-to-date.

 

Taking into account the age of the current defined settlement limits and also principles of sustainable development set out within the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), officers consider that an element of flexibility must be applied when considering proposals for development that lie outside of them and this proactive approach to meeting the overall housing requirement for Allerdale has previously been accepted by the Development Panel as appropriate. Given the scale of development proposed and the proximity and relationship of the site to the current defined settlement and proposed site allocation officers consider the principle of residential development to be acceptable at this location.

 

It is considered that the principle of development is acceptable and complies with the provisions of Policies S2, S3, S5 and DM16 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1).

 

  • Impact on highway network

 

No objections are raised by the local highway authority in relation to the proposed access arrangements for the site or the impact of the proposed development on the local highway network.

 

The Highways Authority has requested a number of conditions be attached to provide adequate infrastructure and ensure a safe walking route is provided.

 

Officers conclude that the proposed development would not have a significant adverse impact on the local highway network and therefore is compliant with the provisions of Policies S2, S5 and S22 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1).

 

  • Parking

 

The Highways Authority has not objected to the level of parking provision, officers consider the proposal meets an adequate level of parking given its town centre location.

 

  • Affordable housing

 

The proposed outline scheme would see 22 affordable units which represent 20% of the scheme. Although the low cost home ownership properties do not meet the specific need on balance with the delivery of a significant number of bungalows it is considered that the level and type of affordable properties is acceptable. Officers consider this is in line with the provisions of Policy S8 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1).

 

  • Landscape and visual impact

 

Officers consider that although the proposal may result in changes to the immediate landscape, the development when viewed from long range views would be seen in the context of the neighbouring existing built development of Wigton.

 

Officers conclude that the proposed development would not have a significant adverse impact on landscape character and visual amenity and therefore is compliant with the provisions of Policies S32 and S33 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1).

 

  • Trees and hedgerows

 

Officers conclude that a proposed layout is achieved that safeguards, where possible, existing trees and hedgerows that contribute positively to the character of the local area and provide ecological value in compliance with the provisions of Policies S33, S35, and DM17 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1).

 

  • Ecology

 

Officers have considered the standing advice provided by Natural England for protected species. Based on the information and guidance contained therein, officers consider that the proposed development would not cause significant harm to protected species that may roost, forage or commute within the site.

 

Officers conclude that the proposed development would not have a significant adverse impact on ecology and therefore is compliant with the provisions of Policies S35 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1).

 

  • Flood risk and drainage

 

The applicant has commissioned a Flood Risk Assessment that concludes the proposal will not result in any Flood Risk to the site or properties within the locality.

 

United Utilities have assessed the proposal and consider the proposal to be acceptable subject to conditions.

 

Officers conclude that the proposed development would not be liable to a high risk of flooding, or exacerbate flood risk elsewhere and the development is therefore compliant with the provisions of Policies S2 and S29 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1).

 

  • Heritage assets

 

The proposal is not considered to have any significant detrimental effect on the Conservation area, or nearby listed buildings. Although there is the potential for archaeological remains on site a condition can ensure these are examined and recorded prior to the commencement of development.

 

  • Residential amenity

 

The proposal will have some impact on existing properties; however, the effects of the development of the amenities of the occupiers of these properties are not considered to be significant.

 

The resulting impacts would not be significantly harmful in terms of overlooking, overshadowing, over-dominance or loss of privacy. The proposal is considered to be acceptable in accordance with policies S32 of the ALPP1.

 

  • Design and appearance

 

The site is located within the conservation area, adjacent to traditional properties within the town and separated from a modern housing estate by playing fields. It is also adjacent to the eastern and northern boundaries of Nelson Thomlinson School. The design of the properties and layout is considered to be acceptable and is in the form of the standard house types of the developer that are utilised on a cross-regional basis. However, some of the units have been adapted to incorporate bespoke external detailing. These units would incorporate detailing such as stone and render elevations.

 

Members noted the representations received in respect of the application, the main grounds of which were set out in the report. Members also noted the additional consultations received since the preparation of the officer’s report.

 

Councillor J Farebrother moved that the application be deferred until further advice and information was sought on emergency access arrangements, the number of school places available in the area, the proposed play area and pavements (due to concerns around highway safety). This was seconded by Councillor D Wilson.

 

A vote was taken on the motion. 2 voted in favour of deferral and 10 against. The motion in favour of deferral was lost.

 

Councillor P Bales moved that the application be approved as per the officer’s recommendation, with the addition of a condition to ensure the diversion of the existing surface water drains and water supply to Longmoor House and an amendment to condition 24 to include reference to the new access to the Wigton Baths. This was seconded by Councillor B Pegram.

 

A vote was taken on the motion. 9 voted in favour of approval, 2 against and there was 1 abstention. The motion in favour of approval was carried.

28.Where significant archaeological remains are revealed by the programme of archaeological work, these shall be carried out within two years of the completion of that programme on site, or within such timescale as otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority : an archaeological post-excavation assessment and analysis, the preparation of a site archive ready for deposition at a store, the completion of an archive report, and the preparation and submission of a report of the results for publication in a suitable specialist journal.

 

Reason: To ensure that a permanent and accessible record by the public is made of the archaeological remains that have been disturbed by the development.

 

29.No development shall take place until a detailed acoustic report on the existing noise climate at the development site has been submitted to and been approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The report shall include a scheme of noise insulation measures for the proposed residential accommodation. The noise assessment shall be carried out by a suitably qualified acoustic consultant/engineer and shall take into account the provisions of National Planning Policy Framework, BS4142: 2014 ""Method of rating industrial noise affecting mixed residential and industrial areas"", BS 8233: 2014 ""Sound Insulation and Noise Insulation for Buildings - Code of Practice"" and World Health Organisation Guidelines on Community Noise.

Any such walls etc. shall be constructed prior to the approved dwelling being brought into use. All means of enclosure so constructed shall be retained and no part thereof shall be removed without the prior consent of the Local Planning Authority.

 

Reason: To ensure a satisfactory standard of development which is compatible with the character of the conservation area, surrounding area and safeguard the amenity of neighbouring properties.

 

31.Notwithstanding the submitted plans details of the siting, height and type of all means of enclosure/screen walls/other means of enclosure on the eastern boundary adjacent to Stony Banks, Footpath 259007 and northern boundary adjacent to Footpath 259008 shall be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority prior to the occupation of any dwelling(s). Any such walls etc. shall be constructed prior to the approved dwelling being brought into use. All means of enclosure so constructed shall be retained and no part thereof shall be removed without the prior consent of the Local Planning Authority.

 

Reason: To ensure a satisfactory standard of development which is compatible with the character of the conservation area and surrounding area.

 

32.  Prior to the commencement of development a survey of the private utilities crossing the site from properties served off Lowmoor Road, shall be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority (including mitigation details of any diversions or protection of existing routes/utilities and their future maintenance). The development shall be completed, maintained and managed in accordance with the approved details.

 

Reason: In order to protect the existing utilities infrastructure services on the site.

 

33.The section of the existing boundary stone wall adjacent to Laurel Terrace to be lowered (as outlined on the approved plan 2017051 SK06 Rev A – Works to existing stone wall – Amended plan received 12 April 2018) shall be or taken down or re-built to a height no lower than 1m above the level of the highway adjacent to Laurel Terrace, in the same materials, coursing and pointing as the existing remaining stone wall to provide the visibility splays required by Condition No. 5. The wall shall thereafter be retained at all times and shall not be removed or altered without the prior consent of the Local Planning Authority. 

 

Reason: In the interests of highway safety and to safeguard and enhance the character and appearance of the development within the Conservation Area in compliance with Policies S4, S27 and DM14 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1), Adopted July 2014.
