5 dwellings following demolition of existing dwelling (as amended by plans received 28 June 2017)

Minutes:

5 dwellings following demolition of existing dwelling (as amended by plans received 28 June 2017)

 

The Principal Planning Officer introduced the application and reminded the committee that this item had been deferred at the 26 October 2017 meeting for clarification of surface water drainage specifications and further assessment of the implications on flood risk and the designation of the site as Flood Zone 1 by the Environment Agency.

 

The Environment Agency had reiterated that the site should be treated as being in Flood Zone 1 and that their mapping would be updated in February 2018. The main issue was surface water flooding and the applicant had submitted a Drainage Strategy to the satisfaction of the council’s Drainage Consultant. The Drainage Strategy proposed measures that would cater for the 1:100 year +30% climate change event and was based on a Sustainable Urban Drainage System of drainage including connection to the surface water main in Lovedean Lane.

 

The recommendation was for permission.

 

Cllr Tickell spoke on behalf of Horndean Parish Council.

 

Horndean Parish Council had objected to this application and those objections still stood. In particular, the objections had been based on the proposed development conflicting with the Horndean Village Design Statement in relation to the three properties proposed at the rear of the site and the flood risk.

 

Turning to the flooding issue, this could be dealt with by way of condition, but the point was to ensure that the condition was robust enough to ensure that problems caused by the development had to be resolved by the developer not become ‘one of those things’ which was beyond the scope of the condition. Increased run off had been identified as a problem. She asked the committee to ensure that if permission was granted, there was a robust and enforceable condition that enabled the relevant authority to enforce the resolution of drainage and flooding issues created by the development.

 

Mr Tutton spoke as the agent for the application.

 

He thanked the Chairman for allowing him to speak in favour of his clients proposal and the officers positive recommendation.

 

Inset map 36 of the Second Review (2006) had shown this site within the Settlement Policy Boundary of Horndean, with land to the west identified as a Reserve Housing Allocation H2. Development to the west of Lovedean Lane to a similar depth as Ashley Close would clearly not conflict with provisions of the Horndean Village Design Statement (2002) regarding development up the valley sides. The officer’s report drew attention to Old Barn Gardens, James Copse Road and the development now being undertaken by Bargate Homes to the rear of 179-189 Lovedean Lane, permitted in September 2014, which extended way beyond the western boundary of his clients site and on up the lower part of the valley side.

 

Residents of this locality enjoyed a safe and convenient access to the ‘Central’ and Tesco supermarkets, the Lovedean local centre, Moorlands Infant and Junior Schools and the 300 bus service that followed Milton Road. This site  ...  view the full minutes text for item 83.

276 dwellings with associated works including garages, parking, access and demolition of 44 & 46 Ramshill (as amplified by transport assessment received 05/02/2002, noise and vibration reports received 24/04/2002 and 02/05/2002, plant list, ecological appraisal, planting plan received 01/05/2002, landscape management plan received 26/04/2002 as amended by plans received 30/04/2002, 16/05/2002 and 19/12/2002)

 

The Head of Planning introduced the item and read aloud a letter from the Chairman of the Ramshill Residents Association expressing their disappointment that the matter had not yet been resolved.  Ramshill Residents Association requested that EHDC encourage Taylor Wimpey to expedite consultation and agreement with third party landowners and begin construction work at the earliest opportunity with completion at least by the end of this year.

 

He also read an update received from Taylor Wimpey, which confirmed that they had received updated costings for the reinforced earth walling and were anticipating sending letters outlining the apportionment of costs to the affected residents on either Monday 15th or Tuesday 16th January 2018.

 

Earlier in the day he had met with Cllr Glass, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Cllr Cowper, Deputy Leader where it had been agreed that an urgent meeting be set up between them and Taylor Wimpey in order to achieve a written timeline and ensure a speedy conclusion to the matter.

 

In response to questions from the committee, the Head of Planning confirmed that all parties involved understood their roles and with regard to the Section 38 Agreement, Hampshire County Council was acutely aware of the history and EHDC’s desire for a speedy resolution.  He was hopeful that the matter would be moved forward before the next update in April 2018. 

 

With regard to future maintenance he confirmed that Petersfield Town Council would adopt the Public Open Space and HCC would adopt the roads and footpaths.

 

The committee NOTED the officer’s report.
