RESOLVED that the minutes of the Planning Committee meeting held on 2 November 2021 be confrimed and signed as a correct record.
The Chairman made the following announcement:
“Members will recall that on 28 May this year, the High Court dismissed a judicial review claim brought by Brook Avenue Residents Against Development (BARAD). This judicial review sought to challenge the grant of an outline planning permission for residential development at Egmont Nurseries in Brook Avenue, Warsash. The High Court Judge also refused BARAD permission to appeal his decision.
BARAD subsequently lodged an application with the Court of Appeal, seeking permission to appeal against the Judge’s decision. On the 21 November the Court of Appeal granted permission for BARAD to appeal on four of their requested five grounds. A copy of the Court’s decision will be made available to view on the Council’s website shortly.
We do not currently have a date as to when this appeal may be heard, and I will update Members further when this information is available.”

Since the publication of the agenda Natural England has replied to the consultation on the Council’s Appropriate Assessment as per paragraph 9.1 of the agenda. The Natural England advice is that the Appropriate Assessment needs further consideration with regards to the recreational disturbance on the Solent SPA’s and New Forrest designated habitats.
It is Natural England’s view that if residents would be allowed cars, without restrictions in place as regards to the physical abilities of the future residents permitted to live in the care home, then the precautionary approach should be applied and full contributions should be paid towards mitigating recreational disturbance.
To address this concern at the Appropriate Assessment from Natural England a further condition has been agreed with the applicant’s agent to ensure that no residents of the care home own a car. Such a condition is considered appropriate in mitigating this issue.
Amendments to the conditions as follows:
