Additional documents:

Minutes:

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

 

The Committee’s attention was drawn to the Update Report which contained the following information:- Three further comments received from local residents unable to attend the Planning Committee raising the following matters:

 

It would be interesting to see what HCC highways have in mind;

Highway improvements are needed before considering further development;

How will wildlife issues be overseen?

Impact on local infrastructure appears to have been dismissed. Housing development cannot be considered in isolation and must be a well considered, overall strategy for the area;

Brownfield sites should not be used;

Local roads cannot cope;

Where is the overall plan for the area?

 

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

(Voting: 9 in favour; 0 against)

 

RESOLVED that PLANNING PERMISSION be REFUSED.

 

Reasons for Refusal

The development would be contrary to Policies CS2, CS4, CS5, CS6, CS14, CS16, CS17, CS18, CS20 and CS21 of the Adopted Fareham Borough Core Strategy 2011 and Policies DSP6, DSP13 and DSP15 of the adopted Local Plan Part 2: Development Sites and Policies Plan and is unacceptable in that:

 

(a) the proposal represents development outside the defined urban settlement boundary for which there is no justification or overriding need and would adversely affect its landscape character, appearance and function.

 

(b) the proposal would result in the loss of Grade 1 and Grade 2 agricultural land;

 

(c) 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;

 

(d) in the absence of a financial contribution or legal agreement to secure such, the proposal would result in an increase on the adjoining road network and its junctions to the detriment of the users of the highway;

 

(e) in the absence of a legal agreement securing a Travel Plan, the proposed development would not make the necessary provision to ensure ‘reduce and manage measures’ are in place to assist in reducing the dependency on the use of the private motorcar;

(f) in the absence of a legal agreement securing provision of open space and facilities and their associated management, the recreational needs of residents of the proposed development would not be met;

 

(g) had it not been for the overriding reasons for refusal the Council would have sought ecological mitigation, compensation and enhancement measures to ensure that all protected species are taken into account during and after construction. These would include alternative provision for habitats, including networks and connectivity and future management and maintenance arrangements;

 

(h) had it not been for the overriding reasons for refusal the Council would have sought details of the SuDS strategy including the mechanism for securing its long-term maintenance.

 

Note for information:

 

Had it not been for the overriding reasons for refusal to the proposal, the Local Planning Authority would have sought to address points c – h of the above by the applicant entering into legal agreement with Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

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

 

The Committee’s attention was drawn to the Update Report which contained the following information:- Page 48, DESIGN, refers to the density if the proposed development and its comparison with the adjacent Strawberry Fields. For Members information the proposed net density equates to 35 dph which is less than Strawberry Fields which has a net density of approximately 40 dph.

 

The applicant has confirmed the development will be predominantly two storey with some limited 2.5 storey.

 

One further comment has been received from a local resident not able to attend the Committee meeting raising the following comments:

 

The proposal will be an extension of the Strawberry Fields development which is over developed and buildings too high, totally changing the character of Warsash;

Lack of parking in Locks Heath Shopping Centre;

The footpath alongside my property should be removed;

If the proposal is permitted I will consider moving;

Loss of privacy.

 

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

(Voting: 9 in favour; 0 against)

 

RESOLVED that PLANNING PERMISSION be REFUSED.

(a) the proposal represents development outside of the defined urban settlement boundary for which there is no justification or overriding need and would adversely affect its landscape character, appearance and function;

 

(b) 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;

 

(c) had the Council been minded to grant planning permission then a highway contribution would have been secured towards highway improvements as a result of the potential cumulative effects of development in the vicinity;

 

(d) in the absence of a legal agreement securing provision of open space and facilities and their associated management, the recreational needs of residents of the proposed development would not be met;

 

(e) had it not been for the overriding reasons for refusal the Council would have sought ecological mitigation, compensation and enhancement measures to ensure that all protected species are taken into account during and after construction. These would include alternative provision for habitats, including networks and connectivity and future management and maintenance arrangements;

Note for information:

 

Had it not been for the overriding reasons for refusal to the proposal, the Local Planning Authority would have sought to address points b – f of the above by the applicant entering into legal agreement with Fareham Borough Council.

Minutes:

They have also provided more detail in relation to reptile mitigation such that the Council’s ecologist has advised that the remaining matters can be made subject of appropriately worded planning conditions (see below).

REASON: In the interests of highway safety and to ensure adequate on-street parking provision is available to meet the needs of this residential area.

 

16. No development shall take place until a reptile mitigation strategy has been submitted to and approved by the local planning authority. The strategy shall include:

(i) Details of the translocation works, including plans showing where reptile fencing will be erected relative to existing reptile habitat, methodology for capture, including timings and capture effort;

(ii) The results of reptile surveys conducted at the identified receptor site;

(iii) The results of reptile habitat availability and capacity within the receptor site;

(iv) Appropriate habitat creation options for increasing the receptor sites capacity for the slow-worm population;

(v) A work schedule for habitat maintenance (including a 5 year project register, an annual work plan and the means by which the plan will be rolled forward annually);

(vii) Personnel responsible for implementation of the plan.

The development shall be carried out fully in accordance with the approved reptile mitigation strategy.

REASON: To ensure appropriate reptile mitigation measures are carried out.
