Report of the Assistant Director Planning – Community Development Services
The Assistant Director Planning – Community Development Services sought determination of a planning application for outline planning permission with some matters reserved (appearance, landscaping, layout and scale) for the construction of 35 dwellings including conversion of existing barn and 4 self-build plots together with associated Highway Works, New Open Space, Play Area and Public Car Parking and Demolition of a dwelling (As Amended) at School Farm, 17 Station Road, Great Ayton for Mr and Mrs Ward
Geoff Tilling spoke objecting to the application.
Ron Kirk spoke on behalf of Great Ayton Parish Council objecting to the application.
The applicant/applicant’s agent, Jonathan Saddington, spoke in support of the application.
During consideration of the above application, the Committee discussed the following issues:-
· The impact of the development on the traffic within the village due to the lack of parking resulting in on-street parking which reduces the width of the roads.
· The access to the development.
· The heritage impact associated with the views from the nearby public footpath and Captain Cooks monument.
· The reduced size of the site and its proportionality within such a large village.
· The proposed planting scheme.
The Decision :-
(a) That the Committee were MINDED TO GRANT outline planning permission subject to receiving a positive recommendation from Natural England, and subject to the conditions as set out in section 12 of the report as amended, and the additional conditions shown below, with delegated authority given to Officers to approve the outline planning permission and impose any planning condition(s) recommended by Natural England.
Outline permission is subject to the completion of a Section 106 agreement with terms as detailed in Table 2 of the report and including the requirements to secure biodiversity net gain and the future maintenance of the associated created habitats.
(b) That the reserved matters application be determined by the Richmond (Yorks) Area Constituency Planning Committee.
A vote was taken with 3 for and 3 against. The Chair gave their casting vote in favour and the motion was declared carried.
The requirements for Biodiversity Net Gain and future maintenance of habitats and biodiversity enhancements can be more appropriately secured through a Section 106 agreement, therefore Condition 9 within Section 12 of the Officer report is removed with its requirements instead included within the requirements of any future Section 106 agreement.
Condition 23: Detailed Plans of Road and Footway Layout
Except for investigative works, no excavation or other groundworks or the depositing of material on site in connection with the construction of any road or any structure or apparatus which will lie beneath the road must take place on any phase of the road construction works, until full detailed engineering drawings of all aspects of roads and sewers for that phase, including any structure which affect or form part of the highway network, and a programme for delivery of such works have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. ... view the full minutes text for item 73.
