New Applications



17/04282/RES - Land At Minchens Lane Bramley - AMENDED

Reserved matters application (phase 4) for the appearance, landscape, layout and scale of 83 dwellings, with associated landscaping and open space (pursuant to outline permission 14/01075/OUT for 200 dwellings)

Concerns were expressed over the drainage strategy.  Cllrs questioned whether the extra sewerage identified in the strategy document from February 2018 from Thames Water has been addressed. 

It was ntoed that this leads into problems at Razors Farm with flooding – and Cllr Tomblin’s queries with HCC. 

Plans for the housing units are in line with what has been previously agreed, including barn hipping, lack of slate, etc. 

Cllr Tomblin to take up with HCC as the Lead Flood Authority, and Cllr Flooks to draft a response to BDBC.  S.106 requirements also to be queried.









Cllr Tomblin

Cllr Flooks


18/01138/HSE - 23 Anvil Way  Bramley

Erection of front bay window and porch extensions

No objections unanimously agreed.  Clerk to process.





18/01226/VLA - Land At The Street The Street Bramley

Removal of reference to the Designated Protection Order under clause 16.10 of the Section 106 agreement relating to planning permission 15/02682/OUT

There was confusion over what the application is asking the PC to comment on – Clerk to query, and ask why a DPO was put in place in the first place?






Any other new applications

A new planning application for 3 St James Close was noted.  This application appeared on the planning portal very late today, and will be considered at the full council meeting on 15th May.




Approvals/Refusals/Pending (see appendix A) – these were noted.



Update on reserved matters applications



18/00366/RES – Land at the Street

Amended plans have now been submitted to BDBC, and details have circulated to all members.  Taylor Wimpey have also been in touch directly, outlining the amended plans.

The Committee is disappointed that insufficient barn hipping provision is made, which may lead to a terracing effect which the PC was keen to avoid.  In the Committee’s opinion this does not conform sufficiently with the Neighbourhood Plan. 

Street lighting – the Committee is disappointed that shorter lamp posts requested will not be included. 

It was noted that there is no confirmation that public open spaces will be protected from illegal encampments. 

Concerned resident comments were noted.  However, chimneys are in line with the Neighbourhood Plan and are therefore not an issue.  The pill box mentioned in the comments is unknown to councillors; however, this will raised with BDBC. 

Cllr Tomblin noted that it should be checked whether an inspection needs to be carried out for possible contaminated land immediately adjacent to the army camp, as was evident on other applications adjoining the camp. 

It was also noted that the most recent development in Bramley is already demonstrating an under-provision of parking spaces for the modern family.  The Committee would hope that the parking standards for this site will demonstrate consideration of this fact. 

Clerk to draft response to BDBC and developers.

















Update on unlawful development



  1. As reported at the last meeting, the residents at one of the plots at Cufaude Lane have now left the plot after enforcement action was taken.  All three plots have now had enforcement notices served on them, and BDBC expect court hearings for these at the end of June.  The planning applications are currently going through the appeals process.
  2. Bramley Post Office & Shop – as reported previously, this application was refused in March.  BDBC are currently looking at whether to enforce or prosecute, and a decision and action is expected on this soon.



Date of Next Meeting



The date of the next Planning Committee meeting will be on 13th June 2018.


Meeting closed at 8.35pm.
