FUL/2021/0070 - Derwent Forest - Residential Development (71 Dwellings) pdf icon PDF 836 KB

Minutes:

Representations

 

Stephen Murray and Martin Lankester spoke in objection to the application.

 

Christine Hardman spoke in support of the application.

 

The Agent, Peter Shannon spoke in support of the application.

 

Application

 

The Senior Planning Officer, Steve Long recommended to grant the application subject to no objections from Natural England to an assessment under the Habitats regulations and S106 legal agreement.

 

The Senior Planning Officer reported reference to the late list document, additional plans had been received which all match each other and further representations had been received from Seaton Parish Council highlighting their previous concerns on the potential traffic impacts.

 

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

 

·  Principle of Development

 

The scheme as amended is acceptable in accordance with the objectives of Policy S18 of ALLP1. The proposal will deliver beneficial local connectivity and restoration measures, proportionate to the scale of the development proposed.

 

·  Layout and Scale

 

As amended, the major development proposed seeks to reflect the house style concepts of the original development and be sympathetic with its open countryside setting.

The nearest property is approx. 260m distance from the site. A Construction Environment Management Plan (CEMP) has been submitted for the development

 

·  Highways

 

The layout and access details as amended meet the requirements of the County highway authority. In order to improve connectivity, the scheme incorporates the extension of the existing C2C route which lies to the west of the site, across the site to the Broughton Moor/ Gt Broughton highway as well as the estate itself.

The issue of the C2C extension has been confirmed by the applicant as to be Multiuser i.e. available for additional use by horse riders.

The applicant has provided details for the Construction Traffic Management Plan.

 

·  Education

 

The securing of the enhanced education infrastructure/ transport services has been assessed with the County Education department.

The scheme was amended to deliver all primary/ junior education contributions to the academy at Gt Broughton (£250,000) as unlike Broughton Moor there is already the bulk of an existing pedestrian footway link to this settlement, which would be completed as part of the development.

In terms of secondary school education contributions, the County agreed to amend their recommendation to deliver the secondary education element to Maryport rather than Cockermouth School as it is nearer and has spare capacity, however would be subject to the provision of a (£71,250) contribution for transport.

The applicant has provided a timetable for the submissions of these sums which has been accepted by the County.

 

·  Contamination

 

The bespoke Policy S18 of ALPP1 relating to this specific Derwent Forest site seeks a form of enabling development (e.g. residential) to facilitate the clean-up of the site. Policy S30 also endorses the remediation of existing contaminated land/buildings. There has been detailed examination of the historical legacy of the site and its operations, to establish the extent of this constraint. The proposal includes the removal and restoration of the southern section of the former munition site, with the relocation of the existing perimeter fence alongside the revised route of the C2C.

·  Affordable Housing

The proposed scheme as amended will deliver 20% local affordable home ownership housing quota (14 dwellings) required under the provisions of Policy SA3 of ALLP2 to be secured under the S106.

·  Drainage

The foul and surface water drainage details are acceptable in compliance with policy S29 of ALPP1

·  Ecology

 

Policy S35 refers to ecology/ biodiversity. The application is supported by detailed ecological surveys. Subject to mitigation being secured these details are safeguarded.

A habitat regulation assessment (HRA) for the proposed works has been received.

Following member discussions, Councillor A Semple proposed to refuse the application doesn’t deliver the vision or comply with Policy S18.

Councillor N Cockburn seconded the motion and to include policy S22.

Planning Manager Graeme Law advised members they need to be clear and concise with the wording for the motion.

Motion 

Reason 1: The proposal is contrary to Local Plan Policy S18 (Derwent Forest) in that it fails to adequately demonstrate a viable mix of uses to enable the restoration of the whole Derwent Forest site.

As a piecemeal proposal covering only one part of the allocated Derwent Forest site, it fails to adequately meet the criteria of the policy and in particular fails to:

a)  Produce a comprehensive masterplan for the site as part of the planning application. (The applicants ‘masterplan’ is not comprehensive, failing to provide appropriate triggers and thresholds, without clear mechanism for verall delivery).

b)  Ensure that off-site infrastructure is adequate to accommodate the overall proposals for the site.

 

Reason 2: The proposal is contrary to Local Plan Policy S22 (Transport Principles) in that it fails to adequately demonstrate that it meets the transport principles of the Local Plan both for the specific proposal and for the masterplan required under Policy S22 (Derwent Forest).

 

The proposal is therefore contrary to the Development Plan, no material planning considerations have been identified to justify departure from the Development Plan; consequently the proposal fails to balance Economic, Environmental and Community objectives as set out in the government’s NPPF guidance and is therefore not sustainable development.

 

A vote was taken: 11 voted in favour of refusal and 1 against.

The motion in favour of refusal was carried.

Decision

Refused

OUT/2021/0024 - Land to the rear of Thorndykes, Hayton - Re-submission of OUT/2020/0016 - Outline application for one dwelling with access and landscaping pdf icon PDF 414 KB

Minutes:

Representations

 

Bill Finlay and Christine Steele spoke in objection to the application.

 

The Planning Officer read out an email on behalf of Andrew Fielding and Vanessa Sonnabend these were in objection to the application.

 

The Agent, Anthea Jones spoke in support of the application.

 

Application

 

The Planning Officer, Kerry McCartney recommended to refuse the application.

 

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

 

·  Principle of Development

 

The proposal site it situated within the village of Hayton which is specified in the Local Plan (part 1) as an infill/rounding off village.  Part 2 of the Local Plan omits any settlement limits for the village.  The merits of the principle of the development therefore fundamentally relate to whether, physically, the plot itself constitutes an infill or rounding off plot. It is the opinion of officers that this site does not fall into this category.

The proposal is therefore considered contrary to Policy S3 of the Allerdale Local Plan.

 

·  Highways

 

Cumbria Highways have raised no objections to the proposal subject to conditions relating to visibility splays and construction and drainage specification details for the access area.  The proposal is therefore considered acceptable in terms of highway considerations. 

 

·  Amenity

 

It is considered that the development site is of significant distance to neighbouring properties to overcome any potential amenity issues and any amenity issues would be addressed as part of any future reserved matters application. 

 

·  Heritage

 

The site falls just outside of the Hayton Conservation Area, however the access road is within.  The application site is located within Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site Buffer Zone and is also adjacent to a Listed Building (The Chapel) directly to the right of the access track. 

It is considered that a development of one residential dwelling could be achieved without resulting in detriment to the above assets. 

·  Drainage

 

A drainage report has been submitted with the application which are considered satisfactory for the development.

Following member discussions, Councillor N Cockburn proposed to refuse the application as per officers recommendations.

Councillor R Munby seconded the motion.

Councillor C Armstrong requested a recorded vote. A vote was taken on the request for a recorded vote, which was approved.

 

A recorded vote was taken on the Motion, viz. –

FUL/2021/0301 - Barn Neighbouring Holme Leigh & Kelsick Farm, Kelsick - Proposed barn conversion to provide residential dwelling, demolition of existing WC to front (south) elevation and erection of two storey rear/side extension to provide quiet living, work area, rehabilitation and shower room on the ground floor and playroom, office, bedroom, bathroom and cupboard at first floor pdf icon PDF 386 KB

Minutes:

Representations

 

The Applicant, Matthew Atkinson spoke in support of the application.

 

Application

 

The Senior Planning Officer, Rebecca Wilson recommended to refuse the application.

 

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

 

·  Principle of Development

 

Policy S3 and S31 of the Local Plan (Part 1) supports the reuse of rural buildings in the open countryside.

Officers are satisfied that the building is capable of conversion and the principle of conversion can be supported.

However, concern is raised with regards to the new build element that would significantly alter the footprint of the development contrary to Policies S14 and S31 of the Local Plan (Part 1).

 

·  Demolition and Biodiversity

 

The scale of the small lean to element on the southern elevation offers little character to the site or visual amenity to the area and no objections are raised to its demolition.

The applicant has adequately addressed the proposal is acceptable in terms of impact on protected species in line with Policy S35 subject to mitigations measures which can be secured by condition.

 

·  Design

 

Officers consider the proposed alterations and extension to the building, in the form of the scale of the two storey extension, addition of a balcony at first floor level and the use of inappropriate materials are inappropriate for its rural location and fails to respond positively to the character and history of the existing resulting in a development that would adversely alter the appearance of the existing building contrary to Polices S3, S31 and DM15 of the Allerdale Local Plan.

 

Following member discussions, Councillor C Armstrong proposed to defer the application for further communication between the officers and the applicant to draw together the council’s policy and the applicant’s requirements.

Councillor P Scott seconded the motion.

A vote was taken: the vote for deferral was unanimous.

 

The motion in favour of deferral was carried.

Decision

Deferred

FUL/2021/0013 - Gale Brow - Caravan Development pdf icon PDF 536 KB

Minutes:

Representations

 

The Agent, Richard Lindsay spoke in support of the application.

 

Application

 

The Senior Planning Officer, Rebecca Wilson recommended to approve the application subject to the conditions in the report and in addition, condition 8 has been revised, additional conditions 25, 26 and 27 have been added.

 

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

 

·  Background

 

The site has been used for mixed purposes and has a varied planning history. Inspectors comments in relation to recent planning appeals for tourism accommodation at the site have suggested that the main area of concern for tourism development related to landscape impact.

 

·  Principle

 

Inspectors comments in relation to recent planning appeals found the site to have accessible access to facilities. The site is brownfield and is well related to the local transport network. Despite conflict with Planning Policy SA32 of the Allerdale Local Plan (Part 2) July 2020, it is recognised that the development would bring about a cohesive use for the previously developed site in place of the existing mixed uses and would bring about some benefits to the local economy.

 

·  Landscape

 

The application is accompanied by a Landscape Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) and landscaping scheme to mitigate against any adverse impacts which would be brought about by the development. Appropriately worded conditions can be used to safeguard the landscaping plan and ensure mitigation for the development.

 

·  Highways

 

Cumbria highways object to the proposal due to the absence of specified visibility splays from the existing access. It is considered that refusal of the application on these grounds would be unwarranted given the limited use of the access road by vehicular traffic, the likely low speed of such traffic and that the access is an existing access in use at the site.

 

 

 

 

·  Residential Amenity

 

The development would bring about a low density lodge site, separated from adjacent properties. Conditions are suggested to ensure the residential amenity of neighbouring properties is safeguarded.

 

·  Drainage

 

Suitable drainage can be secured by condition.

 

·  Contamination

 

Conditions in relation to contamination are required.

 

·  Ecology

 

Further ecology survey works prior to demolition of existing buildings can be secured by planning condition.

 

Following member discussions, Councillor T Annison proposed to approve the application as per officers recommendations and the conditions.

Councillor C Armstrong seconded the motion.

A vote was taken: the vote for approval was unanimous.

 

The motion in favour of approval l was carried.
