P/16/0596/FP - 59-61A FAIRFIELD AVENUE - LAND TO REAR - FAREHAM PO14 1EH pdf icon PDF 2 MB

Minutes:

The Committee’s attention was drawn to the Update Report which contained the following information:- One further letter has been received commenting on the amended plans as follows;

-Whilst the height of the dwelling has been lowered it has been moved closer to the boundary and will therefore cause a greater degree of shading.

-Privacy of the garden will be comprised by the lowering of the boundary wall required to secure adequate visibility.

- Vehicle movements along the service road would pass within 1m of the main living space.

 

Amended planning condition 2 to substitute the following amended plans;

-Proposed Site Plan – Rev D

-Proposed Elevations & Floor Plans – Rev B

-Street Elevation – Rev A

 

Additional condition;

 

Notwithstanding the provisions of Classes A, B, C, D and E of schedule 2, Article 3, Part 1 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 2015 (or any order revoking and re-enacting that Order with or without modification), no extensions, outbuildings, or roof alterations (including the insertion of additional windows or dormer windows) shall be carried out or erected within the curtilage of the dwelling hereby permitted unless first agreed in writing with the local planning authority following the submission of a planning application.

REASON: In the interests of the visual amenity of the area and the amenities of adjoining occupiers; in accordance with Policy CS17 of the Adopted Fareham Borough Core Strategy and Policy DSP3 of the Fareham Borough Local Plan Part 2: Development Sites & Policies.

 

The Committee received a verbal update from the Officer regarding this application regarding the site plan that has been submitted with this application. He informed members that in accordance with the advice from the Highways Officer the site plan should show a 2 x 2 metre pedestrian visibility splay, however the site plan submitted shows a visibility splay in excess of  this which would require boundary treatment around the private gardens of the new dwelling and 61 Fairfield Avenue to be lowered. The Officer suggested that planning permission be granted subject to the submission of a revised site plan showing the incorporation of a 2 x 2 metre pedestrian visibility splay which would allow the boundary treatment around those private gardens to remain at a higher level.

 

Upon being proposed and seconded the officer recommendation to grant planning permission, subject to:-

    (i).        the conditions in the report;

  (ii).        the additional condition in the Update Report; and

 (iii).        the submission of a revised site plan showing a 2 x 2 metre pedestrian visibility splay prior to permission being granted,

 was voted on and CARRIED.

(Voting: 9 in favour; 0 against)

 

RESOLVED that, subject to:-

  (i).        the conditions in the report;

 (ii).        the additional condition in the Update Report; and

(iii).        The submission of a revised site plan showing a 2 x 2 metre pedestrian visibility splay prior to permission being granted,

PLANNING PERMISSION be granted.

P/16/0887/TO - 11 BARTLETT CLOSE FAREHAM PO15 6BQ pdf icon PDF 2 MB

Minutes:

Upon being proposed and seconded the officer recommendation to refuse tree works was voted on and CARRIED.

(Voting: 8 in favour; 1 against)

 

RESOLVED that the proposed tree works be REFUSED.

 

Reason for Refusal

On the basis of the information submitted with the application, the proposed reduction of the Ash tree is considered to be unnecessary. Furthermore the works would be harmful to the health, natural form and appearance of this tree which has not been reduced before, and in turn would be detrimental to the tree’s amenity value and its contribution to the character of the area.

6(8)

P/16/0873/OA - MEON VIEW FARM OLD STREET FAREHAM PO14 3HQ pdf icon PDF 2 MB

Minutes:

The Committee received the deputation referred to in Minute 5 above.

 

Upon being proposed and seconded the officer recommendation to refuse outline planning permission, was voted on and CARRIED.

(Voting: 9 in favour; 0 against)

 

RESOLVED that OUTLINE PLANNING PERMISSION be REFUSED.

 

Reason for Refusal

The development is contrary to Polices CS2, CS6, CS11, CS14 and CS22 of the Adopted Fareham Borough Core Strategy 2011 and Policies DSP6 and DSP15 of the adopted Local Plan Part 2: Development Sites and Policies Plan and is unacceptable in that:

 

  (i).        The proposal represents residential development outside the defined urban settlement boundary, within the countryside, for which there is no justification or overriding need;

 

 (ii).        The erection of four dwellings within this location would significantly affect the integrity of the Meon Strategic Gap;

 

(iii).        The erection of four dwellings within this location, along with the works associated with them, would ‘urbanise’ the appearance of this countryside site and would result in development behind the existing established road frontage. The change to the character of the site and the introduction of residential development to the rear of the frontage properties would materially harm the character of this countryside location;

 

(iv).        In the absence of a financial contribution or a legal agreement to secure such, the proposal would fail to provide satisfactory mitigation of the ‘in combination’ effects that the proposed increase in residential units on the site would cause through increased recreational disturbance on the Solent Coastal Special Protection Areas.
