4.2

Approvals/Refusals/Pending – these were noted.   See appendix A. 

 

4.3

Update on Land North of Sherfield Road (17/00936/FUL) – the review on waste water in the Parish is awaited from Thames Water.  The Parish Council have requested that the BDBC planning officer does not make a decision until the review is complete at the end of November.  The planning officer has contacted Thames Water to find out if they have any reason to delay any decision.  Cllr Bell to take forward.

Cllr Bell has put in a personal objection to amendments. 

Clerk to submit PC objections to BDBC.

4.4

Update on Land South of The Street (15/02682/OUT – the Parish Council have met with representatives of Taylor Wimpey regarding the application.  The developer seems keen to work within the framework set out in the Neighbourhood Plan, and took on board various comments and suggestions made by the PC, particularly with reference to the appearance of houses.

Clerk

4.5

Local Plan housing policy in relation to Upper Cufaude Farm (16/04519/FUL) – the Parish Council originally had no objections, subject to the view from English Heritage, who have come back with no objections.

The planning agent for the application, Edward Dawson, explained that they have hit difficulties with Local Plan policy SS6 (e) and its intent to stop unacceptable development and damage to the countryside.  He asked whether the Parish Council would be willing to consider submitting a statement to BDBC in support of the application.

Councillors noted issues with consistency with other small scale developments outside the settlement boundary.  Mr Dawson noted that each application should be judged on its own merits.  He does not believe that such a statement would be setting a precedent. 

It was unanimously agreed that ‘no objections’ should still stand, but that an active statement of support is unlikely to be agreed when amended plans are submitted.    The issue was recommended to full council for a final decision. 

Amended plans will be submitted by the agent to BDBC.

Minchens Lane issues

 

6.1

Completion of s.106 obligations – Persimmon and BDBC are currently trying to establish exactly who is responsible for carrying out the Clift Meadow car park improvements – the issue is currently with BDBC for a decision.  Persimmon has stated that they are happy to do the work on behalf of BDBC if necessary. 

It also appears that work on the Clift Surgery car park will begin soon, although this needs to be checked.

Clerk to investigate legal redress re slippage of s.106 obligations. 

Cllr Flooks to draft an email/letter to Sue Tarvit and Jon Bishop for an update on s.106 tasks.

 

 

 

 

 

Clerk

 

Cllr Flooks

6.2

Highways issues – Concerns have been raised with Highways and Persimmon about the quality of finish on the recent highway work at Minchens Lane, and also about the junction into the new development.

Responses from planning officers and Highways would indicate that work on the road has not been completed as yet – engineers had delays over the summer which meant the work could not be completed.
