The minutes of the Planning Committee meeting held on 14th March 2018 were unanimously agreed and signed off by the Chairman.

Matters arising

 

 

Flooding in Cufaude Lane – Cllr Tomblin gave an update.  He has complained again to BDBC enforcement about flooding in Cufaude Lane that appears to be due the building work at Razors Farm.  These are new flooding issues that have never been seen in Cufaude Lane.  A response is awaited.

a.

18/00713/HSE - 12 Osler Close Bramley

Erection of single storey side and rear extension

No objections unanimously agreed.  Clerk to process.

 

 

Clerk

b.

 18/00811/HSE - 17 Moat Close Bramley

Clerk

c.

18/00803/HSE - 12 Farriers Close Bramley

Erection of single storey rear extension

Clerk

d.

18/00934/HSE – 10 Wallis Drive Bramley

Erection of first floor side extension and refurbishment of existing garage conversion

Objections were unanimously agreed on the following grounds:

  • The street scene will be significantly altered, resulting in a terracing effect that is not in keeping with the surrounding properties.
  • The first floor extension is likely to overshadow the neighbouring property.
  • The new extension will turn the residence into 4 bedroom house; however, there is only parking for only one car.  BDBCs own guidance on residential parking standards suggest that a 4 bedroom dwelling should have three spaces.

Clerk to process.

QPS House – change of use

6.

Update on reserved matters applications

 

a.

17/04282/RES – Land at Minchens Lane Bramley

No further update on the Phase 4 reserved matters.  Clerk to chase Persimmon.

Persimmon has been in touch regarding work to construct the pedestrian/cycle links to and across the Clift Meadow area as approved through the planning process.  Clerk to ask if hedge can be replaced on a bund to prevent unauthorised access when the work is complete.  Clerk also to query low level lighting, which is not mentioned in the plans. 

They are also in a position to begin work on the Clift Meadow car park, although they can delay this until the work on the Clift Surgery car park is complete.  Cllr Flooks to investigate.

b.

18/00099/RES – Land to the North of Sherfield Road

Bewley have been in touch with some revised layouts and extra gabling on some units.  Councillors are encouraged to see that a number of PC comments have been taken on board.  Lighting on the site is scheduled to be down lighting and strategically placed to cause minimal light pollution – Clerk to check that this is still the case.

It appears that some preparatory work has begun on site.  The Clerk is querying with BDBC whether this should be going ahead at this stage.

Clerk

c.

18/00366/RES – Land at the Street

The Parish Council comments have been submitted to BDBC and to Taylor Wimpey.  Responses are awaited.  Clerk to particularly check on the status of the street lighting query. 

Material samples have been submitted – the committee was content with these, although they will be shown to full council. 

It appears that some preparatory work has begun on site.  The Clerk is querying with BDBC whether this should be going ahead at this stage.

7.

Land by the Clift Surgery

 

 

A meeting was held today with a surveyor acting on behalf of the landowners.  The landowners wish to explore what support might be available for a small development on this land.

Parish Council representatives have made it very clear that Bramley has received far more than its allotted share of development within the Settlement Policy Boundary, and would be reluctant to support any further development at this time.  It was also pointed out that the BDBC have also been supportive of this stance. 

This position will be taken back to the landowner for consideration.  Their representative will also be meeting with BDBC. 

 

8.

Upper Cufaude Farm development

 

 

A meeting has been held with BDBC officers, ward councillors, and councillors from interested parishes on the preliminary stages of this development.

Concerns have been expressed by all parties as follows:

  • The impacts on, and relationship with, Cufaude Lane. This constraint, and access generally, was considered to be probably the most important issue affecting how the site would need to be developed.
  • The approach to future school provision needs to be clarified.
  • The traffic impacts in relation to the business park to the south, and how this affects the commercial enterprises located there. 
  • The provision of the community centre was also considered to be very important.
  • The importance of drainage.
  • Noise issues were also considered to be particularly significant, especially in relation to helicopters flying low over the site. This issue will be problematic to mitigate.
  • The roman road is considered to be an important feature, and should be protected and should inform the layout.
  • The existing trees and vegetation on and around the site were considered to be very important and need to be properly protected and incorporated into the design of the layout.
  • There needs to be sufficient open space provision, and this should be at the heart of the new development.
  • There was a desire for the new development to have a rural character and/or reflect the transition from the urban environment to the countryside beyond.

Cllr Tomblin felt that effort should be made by BDBC to address the issues outlined above to mitigate against them.  He noted that the site was contentious when first under consideration.  The Committee was supportive of this stance.  Cllr Tomblin to draft response to be agreed by committee members and then submitted to BDBC and ward councillors. 

Clerk to obtain copy of the full meeting notes.

Update on unlawful development

 

 

The residents at Plot 4, Cufaude Lane have been notified that their appeal was refused and that they have 7 working days to quit the site. The 7 working days gives them 9 calendar days to leave the site.  This letter was served on them by the Sheriff’s Office on 5h April.

The other two planning applications at the site have both gone to appeal, one after refusal by BDBC, and one on grounds of non-determination.
