Field View Park, Kirk Lane, Enderby  

 

Public Speaking

 

Pursuant to Part 4, Section 7 of the Council’s Constitution in relation to public

rights of participation in planning applications, the Chairman allowed the

following to give a 5 minute presentation:

 

·         Amy Ruddle – In support of both of the applications

·         Alec Statham – Agent, on behalf of the applicant

 

DECISION

 

THAT APPLICATION 18/1152/FUL BE REFUSED FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

 

1.    The application site is within the Green Wedge, as defined in the updated Policies Map (2019), where Policy CS16 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document 2013 applies. There is no significant need for additional residential development in Enderby and there are no exceptional circumstances or other material considerations that together are sufficient to outweigh the Policy presumption against allowing residential development in the Green Wedge. Accordingly, the proposal conflicts with Policy CS16 of the Blaby District Local Plan (Core Strategy) Development Plan Document 2013 and the updated Policies Map (2019).

 

2.    The proposed development, including its layout and substandard separation distances of the mobile homes, would significantly harm the residential amenity of future occupiers, pose a fire risk to those occupiers, would represent a cramped form of development of poor design, is incapable of providing sufficient parking, turning and circulation facilities and results in the overdevelopment of the site contrary to the aims and objectives of Policy CS2 of the Local Plan (Core Strategy) Development Plan Document (2013) and Policies DM2 and DM8 of the Local Plan (Delivery) Development Plan Document (2019).

 

3.    The applicant has failed to provide sufficient information for an assessment to be made of the risks of pollution to ground and surface waters and the water environment arising from the use of non-mains foul drainage as proposed in the development. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policy DM13 of the Local Plan (Delivery) Development Plan Document (2019).

 

4.    In the absence of a planning obligation to secure an affordable housing contribution in terms that are satisfactory to the District Planning Authority, the proposal is contrary to Policy CS7 of the Local Plan (Core Strategy) Development Plan Document (2013), the Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (2010) and the Housing Mix and Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document (2013).

 

5.    The applicant has failed to provide sufficient on-site open space, sport and recreational facilities or a financial contribution in lieu of such facilities contrary to Updated Policy CS15 of the Local Plan (Delivery) Development Plan Document (2019) and the Planning Obligations and Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Guidance (2010).

 

6.    The applicant has failed to provide sufficient financial contributions in respect to healthcare contrary to Policy CS12 of the Local Plan (Core Strategy) Development Plan Document (2013) and the Planning Obligations and Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document (2010).
