21/00596/FULM: Erection of 77 dwellings with associated works pdf icon PDF 880 KB

Wolsey Road Coalville LE67 3TU

 

Minutes:

The Principal Planning Officer presented the report to members.

 

Mr Moore, applicant, addressed the committee, highlighting that the application before them would bring an attractive development to a brownfield site, that they had worked closely with all statutory consultees to bring forward the application and that the design would allow for wider connectivity for any future developments on the site. He noted that the landscaping would be maintained by a registered partner, that the site would be energy efficient, and that direct funding had been secured which would allow the development to be delivered as soon as possible, subject to permission being granted.

 

In determining the application, members were in support of the application and the site, as it was for affordable houses on brownfield land. However, some concerns were expressed over the lack of turning heads through the site, the impact the development would have on the Mantle Lane junction and asked if there would be a street lighting scheme, given the road would be unadopted.

 

Members had regard to the turning points that were included in the plan, as determined by a tracking plan and the proposed highways layout that had been submitted by the applicant and approved by the Highways authority. It was also noted that a condition could be included on street lighting should the application be permitted.

 

The recommendation to permit the application in accordance with the officer’s recommendation, subject to powers being delegated to officers to word the condition in relation to streetlights, was moved by Councillor J Bridges and seconded by Councillor S Gillard.

 

The Chairman put the motion to the vote. A recorded vote being required, the voting was as detailed below.

 

RESOLVED THAT:

 

The application be permitted in accordance with the recommendation of the Head of Planning and Infrastructure, subject to powers being delegated to officers to word the condition in relation to streetlights.

 

Correction: It was stated in the officer report that a building was to be demolished on site and this was referred to as being the Neal’s Cars building. Whilst the officer’s report correctly identified that a building is to be demolished on site to facilitate this development, it should be noted that this building is not the Neal’s cars premises as that lies elsewhere in Coalville and it is unaffected by this development.

    Minutes:
