Representations

 

Josie Farmer spoke in objection to the application.

 

Councillor Peter Kendall spoke in objection to the application on behalf of Maryport Town Council.

 

The applicant’s agent, Femi Santos spoke in support of the application.

 

Application

 

The report recommended that the decision to grant permission subject to conditions be delegated to the Head of Place Development upon the expiration of the statutory publicity period.

 

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

 

  • Principle of development

 

The proposal would see the re-use of existing vacant buildings within a Key Service Centre and a viable re-use for this heritage asset within the Maryport Conservation Area. Residential use would be compatible with the surrounding area. As such, the principle of the development is considered to be acceptable.

 

·  Heritage assets

 

The conversion of this existing building, which has both architectural and historic value in its own right as well as making a positive contribution to the Maryport Conservation Area is supported by national and local policy. The partial demolition of outbuildings will have some adverse impact on the significance of the heritage assets of the Conservation Area and the listed buildings adjacent on Fleming Square. This harm is considered to be less than substantial and would be outweighed by the public benefits of securing the re-use of the building overall and by providing additional housing within this Key Service Centre, where the delivery of new housing in the current plan period has been very limited.

 

·  Sustainability, access and parking

 

The proposal is considered to be within a highly sustainable location and, whilst no provision is made for off-street parking, this is not considered to be sufficiently detrimental to result in an unacceptable impact on highway safety, and the residual cumulative impacts on the road network would not be severe.

 

·  Residential amenity

The proposal is considered to retain the residential amenity of neighbouring properties to an acceptable level in accordance with Policy S32 of the ALP (Part 1). Whilst it is accepted that the form of the new build will result in a change in the outlook from 4 William Street in particular, the outlook from this property is already impinged to a large degree by the presence of the stable building. Whilst the eaves height will increase, the footprint will reduce, thereby altering the outlook from this property but not resulting in a significant adverse impact over and above that which exists at present.

 

·  Mix of housing

 

Having regard to the revised guidance within the NPPF, it is not considered appropriate to seek any affordable housing units as part of this proposal.

 

·  Ecology

 

The application site is considered to offer some potential for use by bats, however this potential is considered to be low. An advisory note has been added, should Members be minded to approve the application, which provides advice in relation to this species and the need for a License from Natural England, should bats be found.

 

·  Tilted balance

 

The benefits of providing a meaningful supply of housing derived from bringing a vacant heritage asset within a conservation area back into use significantly outweigh the adverse impacts when assessed against the provisions of the Local Plan and NPPF taken as a whole.

 

Members noted the representations received in respect of the application, the main grounds of which were set out in the report.

 

Following member discussion, and the questions raised to the speakers, having concurred with the weighting of policy and material considerations detailed in the report, Councillor N Cockburn moved that the application be approved as per the officer’s recommendation. This was seconded by Councillor M Grainger.

 

Councillor J Farebrother moved an amendment to the motion, to stipulate that one of the small apartments be made in to an affordable housing dwelling.

There was no seconder to the motion therefore the motion was lost.

 

A vote was taken on the motion for approval as per the officer’s recommendation, 12 voted in favour. The motion was carried.

2/2018/0275 - Land at Borriskill, Ellenborough, Maryport - Outline planning permission for the erection of a dwelling with all matters reserved pdf icon PDF 695 KB

Minutes:

Representations

 

Councillor Peter Kendall spoke in support of the application on behalf of Maryport Town Council.

 

The applicant’s agent, Daniel Addis spoke in support of the application.

 

Application

 

The report recommended that the application be refused.

 

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

 

·  Principle

 

The application site is located in the open countryside outside the defined settlement limit. The proposed dwelling represents an inappropriate form of development in the open countryside contrary to the provisions of Policy S3 and S33 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 1).

 

·  Access

 

The site is served off a private lane which is part restricted in width and has little in the way of suitable construction. The access lane would also require capping to mitigate against previous coal mining activities.

 

·  Drainage

 

It is considered that drainage details can be adequately controlled by condition.

 

·  Character and appearance

 

It is considered the proposed development will not adversely affect the amenities of the occupiers of nearby residential properties but;

 

·  Tilted balance

 

The adverse impacts of permitting the development in this poorly accessible unsustainable countryside location with significant harm to the landscape and visual amenity would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefit of providing just one dwelling, when assessed against the policies in the Local Plan 2014 and the NPPF 2018 taken as a whole.

 

Members noted the representations received in respect of the application, the main grounds of which were set out in the report.

 

Following careful consideration by all members of the speakers’ comments and member discussion, having concurred with the weighting of policy and material considerations detailed in the report, Councillor J Farebrother moved that the application be refused as per the officer’s recommendation. This was seconded by Councillor C Armstrong.

 

A vote was taken on the motion for refusal as per the officer’s recommendation.  10 voted in favour, 1 voted against and 1 abstained from voting. The motion was carried.

 

Resolution

 

Refused

 

Reasons for refusal

 

  1. The application site is located in a distinctive rural fringe within an open countryside setting, with the local bridleway infrastructure network providing a definitive physical boundary to the high density built form of the urban residential estates on the eastern perimeter of Maryport’s settlement. The development would introduce a detrimental alien form within the existing site’s open natural environment which is visible from the Public Bridleway 226015. It therefore will neither enhance nor restore the existing landscape character. The development is considered to have an adverse effect on the landscape, eroding the distinctive features, identity and rural character of its locality and would be an incongruous development in this rural locality. The site is not considered to be well related to the built environment and would extend into the open countryside. As such it is contrary to policies S1, S2, S32 and S33 of the adopted Allerdale Local Plan Part 1 – 2014 and the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.

 

  1. Public Bridleway 226015 is a sensitive visual receptor and the development is considered, as a result of its proximity to this receptor and alien form within the landscape, to be detrimental to the enjoyment and visual amenity value derived from this public right of way. As such the development is contrary to policies S1, S2, S32 adopted Allerdale Local Plan Part 1 – 2014 and the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.

 

  1. The development represents an unsustainable form of development due to the reliance for access via an unmade, unlit track and, as a result, there would be an unsustainable reliance on car-borne journeys to access services and facilities contrary to policies S1 and S2 of the adopted Allerdale Local Plan Part 1 – 2014 and the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.

Minutes:

Representations

 

Janet Clarke spoke in objection to the application.

 

Councillor Peter Kendall spoke against the application on behalf of Maryport Town Council.

 

The applicants Steven Fisher and Elizabeth Fye spoke in support of the application.

 

Application

 

The report recommended that the application be approved.

 

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

 

  • Design

 

The proposal is of an appropriate design for the application site and surrounding area

 

·  Residential amenity

 

The single story element to the rear would not require planning permission in its own right and this is afforded weight as a material consideration. The two storey side extension is of similar scale and design to other two storey side extensions on this part of the street scene.

 

Members noted the representations received in respect of the application, the main grounds of which were set out in the report.

 

Following questions raised to the speakers, consideration of all relevant matters and discussion, members concurred with the weighting of policies and material considerations in the report, Councillor M Grainger moved that the application be approved as per the officer’s recommendation. This was seconded by Councillor R Munby.

 

A vote was taken on the motion for approval as per the officer’s recommendation.  11 voted in favour and 1 voted against. The motion was carried.

 

Resolution

2/2018/0214 - Land at Abbey Road, Abbeytown - Outline consent for erection of dwellinghouses pdf icon PDF 718 KB

Minutes:

Application

 

The report recommended that the decision to grant permission subject to conditions be delegated to the Head of Place Development upon the expiration of the statutory publicity period and the completion and signing of a S106 agreement that delivers the equivalent of 25% of the homes as Affordable (within the definition of the National Planning Policy Framework 2018), such delivery being in the form of a minimum of one on-site discounted affordable ownership home (max of 70% of OMV) and the remaining requirement comprising of a financial contribution towards off site affordable housing within the Borough.

 

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

 

  • Principle of design

 

Abbeytown acts as a Local Service Centre in the settlement hierarchy under Policy S3 of the Allerdale Local Plan. The site occupies a central, sustainable location within the village.

 

·  Relationship to its surroundings

 

This area of open land is surrounded on all four of its boundaries by existing residential development; therefore it is considered to be a sustainable site, well related to the built environment of the settlement

 

·  Highway considerations

 

The site is served by a single vehicular access onto Abbey Road (B5307). The highway authority raises no objections to the proposed details subject to highway conditions.

 

·  Affordable housing

 

The applicant is agreeable to secure 25% of the sites housing under a s106 legal agreement.

 

·  Landscape

 

The Council have protected the two mature oak trees sited on the western boundary of the site. The site, by virtue of its enclosed location in the village, would not have an adverse impact on the surrounding landscape.

 

·  Tilted balance

 

Substantial weight is afforded to the benefits of delivering this mix of housing types which make a meaningful contribution to the Council’s need and growth strategy identified in the 2014 Local Plan. These benefits outweigh the limited adverse impacts arising from the development.

 

Members noted the representations received in respect of the application, the main grounds of which were set out in the report.

 

Following member discussion and careful consideration of all relevant policies and considerations, Councillor N Cockburn moved that the application be approved as per the officer’s recommendation. This was seconded by Councillor D Wilson.

 

A vote was taken on the motion for approval as per the officer’s recommendation.  10 voted in favour and 2 voted against. The motion was carried.

 

Resolution

 

That the decision to grant permission subject to conditions be delegated to the Head of Place Development upon the expiration of the statutory publicity period and the completion and signing of a S106 agreement that delivers the equivalent of 25% of the homes as Affordable (within the definition of the National Planning Policy Framework 2018), such delivery being in the form of a minimum of one on-site discounted affordable ownership home (max of 70% of OMV) and the remaining requirement comprising of a financial contribution towards off site affordable housing within the Borough.
