Approval of Reserved Matters (appearance, landscaping, layout and scale) pursuant to permission 14/00822/OUT for the mixed residential development of 112 dwellings; formation of estate roads; landscaping scheme.

 

Minutes:

The Principal Planning Officer introduced the application for the approval of Reserved Matters (appearance, landscaping, layout and scale) pursuant to permission 14/00822/OUT for the mixed residential development of 112 dwellings, formation of estate roads and landscaping scheme.

 

The Chairman invited Helen Howie, Agent for the applicant, to respond to the objections raised by Ellesmere Town Council in relation to the levels of parking provision.  The Agent confirmed that without exception, each dwelling had provision for the parking of two vehicles.

 

Having considered the submitted plans, Members felt that the development provided a good mix of dwellings, and the design and layout had been carefully considered within the context of the semi- rural character of the area.  The Committee also felt that the concerns of the Town Council had been addressed through extensive conditions.  Members unanimously expressed their support for the proposals, in accordance with the Planning Officer’s recommendation.

 

RESOLVED:

That Planning Permission be granted in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation, subject to the conditions set out in Appendix 1 of the Officer’s report.

Reserved Matters application pursuant to Outline application 14/03268/OUT (all matters reserved) for the erection of five pairs of semi-detached dwellings

 

Minutes:

The Principal Planning Officer introduced the Reserved Matters application pursuant to outline application 14/03268/OUT (all matters reserved) for the erection of five pairs of semi-detached dwellings.  Members’ attention was drawn to the information contained within the Schedule of Additional letters, which detailed additional conditions recommended by Highways and comments from the Agent.  

 

In accordance with the Local Protocol for Councillors and Officers dealing with Regulatory Matters (Part 5, Paragraph 15.1) Councillor Pauline Dee, as local ward councillor, made a statement and then left the table, took no part in the debate and did not vote on this item. During her statement, the following points were raised:

 

·         The local primary school had almost reached capacity, CIL funding was therefore essential;

·         Access should not be off Ash Grove, as the road was of poor quality;

·         The development was located close to Wem Industrial Estate which could potentially cause noise nuisance to future residents;

·         Additional conditions were required to ensure construction traffic wasn’t parked on Ash Grove, no construction traffic to travel through Wem town centre and no construction work to take place on Saturdays or Sundays; and

·         The loss of trees from the site had been harmful to bats.

 

Members’ attention was also drawn to comments that had been circulated from Councillor Chris Mellings, local ward councillor.

 

The Principal Planning Officer responded to the concerns raised by the local ward councillors and explained that the proposed access had been assessed by the Council’s Highway Consultant who had no objection to the use of Ash Road as the point of access, in relation to the potential for noise nuisance from the nearby Industrial Estate, it was confirmed that the Council’s Public Protection Team also had no objections. 

 

Although sympathetic to the concerns raised by local residents, the Parish Council and the local ward councillors, the Committee noted that condition 5 of the outline consent, requiring the applicant to submit a Construction Method Statement, would address many of the concerns raised.  Therefore having considered the submitted plans and listened to the comments made by all of the speakers, members unanimously expressed their support for the Officer’s recommendation.

 

RESOLVED:

That Planning Permission be granted subject to:

 

  • The conditions set out in Appendix 1, with the deletion of Condition 2: and
  • The additional Highways conditions as set out in the Schedule of Additional Letters.
