Minutes:

The Senior Planning Officer presented the report to members, and explained that an additional letter of representation had been received since the update sheet had been printed which set out objections on the basis of increased density, the fact that the proposals represented a new application and that some of the original assessments required updating.  She advised that no new material objections had been raised in this letter.

 

Mr M McCrea, objector, addressed the meeting. He expressed concerns regarding the percentage increase in the number of dwellings, the various modifications to the layout of the site, traffic, flooding and sewage capacities, the impact of additional traffic on Butt Lane, and the fact that conditions imposed by the planning inspector who permitted the original application on appeal had not been observed. 

 

Mr I Pickering, applicant’s agent, addressed the meeting.  He explained that the revised proposals entirely fit within original boundary of site and the aim was to improve the housing mix on the site.  He added that the required infrastructure had been put in place in order to avoid any flooding issues. 

 

Cllr S McKendrick, ward member, addressed the meeting.  She expressed concerns regarding the intensification of the development, the fact that site was now outside the limits to development, vehicle movements on and off site, the impact upon Butt Lane, highways concerns expressed by local residents, local reports of flooding and the adequacy of drainage.  She emphasised the need ensure conditions were clear and detailed to ensure adequate public transport provision, sufficient wheel cleaning, the development of a construction vehicle movement scheme, an adequate drainage scheme and consideration of some traffic control measures. 

 

In determining the application, members had regard to the proposed conditions to be imposed should permission be granted, the impact on the density of the site, the fact that the site was now outside the limits to development, the proximity and coalescence of Woodville, the planning inspector’s comments when permitting the original application at appeal, the improved housing mix, whether there was any  loss of the area of separation and the possibility to extend provision at Blackfordby school.

 

Councillor N Smith emphasised that any future extension to the school should be in keeping with the existing building.

 

The officer’s recommendation was moved by Councillor M Specht and seconded by Councillor G Jones.
