P/16/1047/CC - LAND SOUTH TO FAREHAM WASTE TRANSFER STATION, ENTERPRISE PARK, MILITARY ROAD, FAREHAM pdf icon PDF 1 MB

Minutes:

Councillor R H Price, JP declared a non-pecuniary interest in this item as he sits on the Regulatory Committee at Hampshire County Council in his role as a County Councillor, and that this application would be coming before the Regulatory Committee for a decision. He informed the Committee that his vote on each Committee would be made by his opinion as a Councillor for each Committee.

 

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

 

At the invitation of the Chairman, Councillor Mrs K K Trott addressed the Committee on this item.

 

Upon being proposed and seconded, the officer recommendation to raise an objection to the proposed application due to the limited landscaping and substantial visual harm caused by the proposed development, was voted on and CARRIED.

(Voting: 7 in favour; 0 against; 1 abstention)

 

RESOLVED that Hampshire County Council be advised that Fareham Borough Council RAISE OBJECTION to the application as currently proposed. This is because the limited landscaping works proposed will not mitigate against the substantial visual harm caused by the changes to the site levels, the height and size of the proposed office/workshop building, and the extensive hard surfacing and associated parking of lorries and vehicles, on this elevated countryside site.

P/14/0033/FP - LAND AT WINDMILL GROVE, PORTCHESTER PO16 9HT pdf icon PDF 380 KB

Minutes:

The Committee’s attention was drawn to the Update Report which contained the following information:- Officers have discussed the wording of the section 106 agreement with the applicant.

 

The draft agreement contains obligations in respect of financial contributions towards the Solent Recreational Mitigation Project (SRMP) (£4,224) and coastal management measures (25,000).

 

It also requires that, prior to construction of the new homes, a Public Open Space Management Plan be submitted to and approved by the local planning authority.

 

In the draft agreement the Public Open Space Management Plan is defined as follows:

 

“A plan for the design, construction and maintenance of the Public Open Space to include;

- Details of the laying out of the Public Open Space;

- Details of what measures would be put in place to periodically re-route the footpath shown to pass through the public open space from east to west accordingly as required due to coastal erosion;

- Details of the body responsible for the ongoing management of the area of Public Space;

- Details of the maintenance arrangements for the Public Open Space and how that maintenance will be funded.”

 

The legal agreement then binds the applicant to the following obligations regarding the public open space:

 

“2.1 Not to Commence the Development until the Public Open Space Management Plan has been submitted to and approved on writing by the Council.

 

2.2 To construct the Public Open Space in accordance with the Public Open Space Management Plan.

 

2.3 Not to Occupy or permit Occupation of the Development until the Public Open Space has been constructed in full to the satisfaction of the Council and made available for access by the public.

 

2.4 Once the Public Open Space has been constructed to the full satisfaction of the Council, to maintain access by members of the public to the Public Open Space at all times for the lifetime of the Development.

 

2.5 Once the Public Open Space has been constructed to the full satisfaction of the Council, to maintain the Public Open Space in accordance with the approved Public Open Space Management Plan at all times for the lifetime of the Development.

 

2.6 Once the Public Open Space has been constructed to the full satisfaction of the Council, to periodically re-route the footpath in accordance with the approved Public Open Space Management Plan for the lifetime of the Development.

 

2.7 If the Owner fails to comply with the provisions of the Public Open Space Management Plan the Council may enter the Land and take such steps as necessary to comply with the provisions of the Public Open Space Management Plan and recover its reasonable expenses from Cross Stone Properties Limited or its successors in title incurred in taking these steps.

 

2.8 To retain the Public Open Space within the common parts of the development and to integrate the management of the Public Open Space (in accordance with the approved Public Open Space Management Plan) with the general management of the common parts of the development.

 

2.9 Not to transfer or sell the Public Open Space separately to the rest of the common parts of the Development.”

 

Clauses 2.1 – 2.6 commit the applicant to adhering to the details submitted in the Public Open Space Management Plan once approved. Clause 2.7 allows the Council to carry out maintenance itself and charge the applicant for doing so in the event that there is a failure to comply with the management plan. Clauses 2.8 – 2.9 ensure that the public open space would remain a part of the wider management arrangements of the development and could not be separated from the management of the other common parts of the site in the future.

 

Upon being proposed and second the officer recommendation to grant planning permission, subject to the applicant / owner first entering into a planning obligation under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 on terms drafted by the Solicitor to the Council to secure:

(a)  A financial contribution towards the Solent Recreational Mitigation Project (SRMP);

(b)  A financial contribution of £25,000 towards coastal management measures;

(c)  Submission of a Public Open Space Management Plan (precise wording to be provided in an update to this report);

and the conditions set out in the Officer report, was voted on ad CARRIED.

(Voting: 8 in favour; 0 against)

 

RESOLVED that, subject to the applicant / owner first entering into a planning obligation under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 on terms drafted by the Solicitor to the Council to secure:

(a)  A financial contribution towards the Solent Recreational Mitigation Project (SRMP);

(b)  A financial contribution of £25,000 towards coastal management measures;

P/15/1060/FP - 21 WEST STREET, PORTCHESTER, FAREHAM PO16 9XB pdf icon PDF 2 MB

Minutes:

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

(Voting: 8 in favour; 0 against)

 

RESOLVED that PLANNING PERMISSION be REFUSED.

Reasons for Refusal:

The development, by reason of the overall height, scale, siting and massing of the scheme at the rear of the site, would result in an incongruous development that would be out of keeping with the character and appearance of the area. The development fails therefore to accord with Policy CS17 of the Adopted Fareham Borough Core Strategy, and Policy DSP4 of the Adopted Fareham Borough Local Plan Part 2: Development Site and Policies.

(d)  that should any of the hedgerow planting fail; within 5 years of development commences, then it should be replaced.

 

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

  (i).        The conditions in the report;

 (ii).        The amendment of Condition 2 to include the additional approved Boundary Hedgerow Management Programme; and

(iii).        An additional condition requiring:

As per the main agenda with the following additional conditions:

Where results indicate, a strategy of remedial measures necessary to address the identified risks shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The approved remedial measures within the remedial strategy shall be implemented in full during the construction. Prior to the first use of the radar hereby permitted, validation (by a suitably competent person) or the implementation of the remedial measures shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

Reason: To ensure a safe working and operating environment and in the interests of the airfield.

 

8) Should contamination be encountered during works that has not been investigated or considered in the agreed scheme of remedial measures all work must stop. A risk assessment and a detailed remedial method statement shall be submitted to and agreed in writing with the Local Planning Authority before work re-commences. The approved remedial measures within the remedial strategy shall be implemented in full during the construction. Prior to the first use of the radar hereby permitted, validation (by a suitably competent person) of the implementation of the remedial measures shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
