Subject to the refusal for planning application 17/00936/FUL at the Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council Development Control Committee meeting on 10th January 2018, the following information has been sent out to those who submitted comments.  A full copy of the letter can be found at the bottom of the page.

Location:

Land To The North Of Sherfield Road Bramley Hampshire

Proposal:

Residential development of 55 dwellings including affordable housing with associated access, highways works, drainage work (SUDS), public open space and other associated infrastructure

 

The applications and representations received have been considered and permission has been refused for the following reasons: 

  1. The proposal would result in new dwellings within the countryside, outside any recognised Settlement Policy Boundary and as such would be contrary to Policies SS1 and SS6 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029, which aim to direct development to within the identified Settlement Policy Boundaries and specific site allocations, unless in exceptional circumstances as identified within Policy SS6.  The proposal is not considered to meet any of the exceptions set out within Policy SS6 and would not therefore represent a sustainable form of development.  Furthermore, Policy H1 of the Bramley Neighbourhood Plan 2011-2029 (March 2017) only supports new housing if it is in accordance with the relevant policies of the Local Plan for new housing in the countryside.  The proposal would therefore also be in conflict with Policy H1 of the Bramley Neighbourhood Plan 2011-2029 (March 2017).

  2. Policy SS5 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029 states that Bramley should deliver at least 200 dwellings in the life of the Local Plan through the Neighbourhood Planning process.  It is considered that this requirement has been met and exceeded subject to land supply considerations and current planning commitments being built out.  In the absence of any material consideration to override policy in this case, the proposal would be contrary to Policy SS5 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029 and the Bramley Neighbourhood Plan 2011-2029.

  3. It has not been sufficiently demonstrated that the proposal would provide adequate sewerage capacity and as such would be contrary to Policy CN6 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

  4. It is considered that the proposed scale and use of the development would be inappropriate having regard to the site's countryside location, in that it would not respect the character, appearance and amenity of the surrounding area.  As such the proposal would be contrary to Policies EM1 and EM10 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029 and the Bramley Neighbourhood Plan 2011-2029.

  5. Given the lack of a completed Section 106 Agreement to secure adequate infrastructure to mitigate the impact of the development in relation to community provision, open space, affordable housing, playing fields, play /recreation and education, the proposal would be contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (March 2012); Policies CN1, CN6 and CN8 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029; the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations (amended 2015); Hampshire County Council 's adopted Transport Contributions Policy (September 2007); Hampshire County Council's Developers' Contribution towards Children's Services Facilities and the Council's Interim Planning Guidance on S106 Planning Obligations and Community Infrastructure (July 2005, updated 2015), and Adopted Green Space Standards (April 2013).
