1701 MINUTES – Resolved – That the minutes of the proceedings of the meeting held on 18 November 2015, having been printed and circulated amongst the members, be taken as read and correctly recorded and be signed by the chairman.

1702 (23) APPLICATIONS DEFERRED FROM PREVIOUS MEETING – In accordance with the decisions at previous meetings, members had undertaken site visits on the morning of the meeting. The Head of Development Management submitted reports and updated them orally.

(i) 2014/1426 Mr T Matthews for outline planning permission for residential development with all matters reserved for subsequent approval, land to the rear of 38 Ville Road, Scunthorpe.

Councillor Allcock raised concerns following the site visit with regard to the dangerous access and speed of traffic entering the A18 Queensway, and the fact that it is a principal route through Scunthorpe and close to a major signalised junction.

Resolved – That outline planning permission be refused for the following reasons:

1.
The proposed access arrangements to service the development are not considered satisfactory and are likely to interfere with the safe flow of traffic on the A18 Queensway. The proposal is thus contrary to saved policy T2 of the North Lincolnshire Local Plan 2003.

2.
Insufficient information has been submitted to establish that the development will not cause surface water run-off problems for the occupiers of adjacent property.

(ii) 2015/1040 North Lincolnshire Homes for planning permission to erect 20 affordable houses including access road, car parking and visitor car parking at land west of Bridgewater Road, Scunthorpe.

The agent for the application indicated that the application was necessary to provide more affordable housing in North Lincolnshire, and would contain either 2 (16 units) or 3 (4 units) bedrooms. The proposal was to provide a link road between Bridgewater Road and Seaton Road which would serve the proposed development, and each of the proposed dwellings would benefit from a dedicated rear garden area.   He also highlighted that the Highways and Planning department had no issues or concerns with this application.

Councillor L Foster raised concerns, not with the application for the 20 new houses but with regard to the proposed layout of the development and in particularly the road.

Councillors Bainbridge and Carlile also had concerns with the road layout that could potentially be very dangerous around the Nursing Home, and asked if there was any alternative layout available for the proposal.

The Head of Development Management informed the committee that a variety of layouts had been looked at previously and this one was the best option.  Changing the layout he felt would make it worse

Resolved – That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations contained within the report.

1703 (24) MAJOR PLANNING APPLICATIONS – The Head of Development Management submitted reports containing details of major applications for determination by the Committee, including a summary of policy context, representations arising from consultation and publicity and assessment of the applications.

(i) 2015/0724 Merryvale Developments for planning permission to erect 12 affordable dwellings at the former site of the Cross Keys Inn, 6 Top Road, South Killingholme.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations contained within the report.

(ii) 2015/0960 North Lincolnshire Homes for planning permission for affordable housing development consisting of 12 houses and four bungalows at Ashtree Close, Belton.

Resolved – That a decision on this application be deferred to allow the committee to have a site visit.

(iii) 2015/1195 Keigar Homes Ltd for planning permission to demolish rear of existing public house and outbuilding and convert public house to two new dwellings, and erect a further eight dwellings and associated works, including garaging, driveways, landscaping and access road at Brocklesby Hunt Inn, Howe Lane, Goxhill.

The agent for the application informed the committee that they had been working with the local Parish Council and North Lincolnshire Council to try and retain the Public House if the community could do so within a certain time period.

Two residents also addressed the committee and raised their concerns about the loss of amenities in Goxhill, and highlighted how important it was for the community to try and re-establish the Public House there so that further amenities were not lost.  This would require between a 6-12 month period in order to form a business plan, secure the funding and generate community support.

Councillors Hannigan and Clark as Ward members said they would like to see a compromise made between the community and the developer, and agree a possible 12 month period for the community to re-establish the Public House.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted subject to a Section 106 agreement that secures two units of affordable housing and provides the opportunity for a 12-month period for the public house and an element of adjacent land for a car park and amenity space to be acquired and operated as a community asset, and the following conditions :

1704 (25) PLANNING AND OTHER APPLICATIONS – The Head of Development Management submitted a report incorporating a schedule containing details of applications for determination by the committee including summaries of policy context, representations arising from consultation and publicity and assessment of the applications.  The Head of Development Management updated the reports orally where appropriate.  Other officers attending gave advice and answered members’ questions as requested.

(i) 2013/1309 Thorne Bank Fisheries for planning permission to transfer a ‘temporary agricultural’ dwelling at the aforementioned address (Approval notice PA/2010/1024) to a ‘permanent’ on-site residence for use by the landowner, including the erection of a two storey side extension.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations within the report.

(ii) 2014/1093 Mrs M Haywood for planning permission to demolish an existing garage/store and erect a dwelling at land adjacent to 2 West Street, Hibaldstow.

Resolved – That planning permission be refused for the reasons contained within the report.

(iii) 2015/0742 Onward Holdings Ltd for planning permission for the change of use of land to provide an additional car sales area at 44 Normanby Road, Scunthorpe.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations contained within the report.

(iv) 2015/1088 Done Brothers (Cash Betting) Ltd for planning permission for change of use from A1 to betting shop (sui generis) at 12 Broadway, Scunthorpe.

The agent for the application talked in support of the application, and requested a change to the condition listed in the report to change the opening times of the shop on a Sunday.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations contained within the report, with the amendment to condition 2 to allow opening hours of 9am to 10pm.

(v) 2015/1110 Unilet for planning permission to erect five dwellings at land adjacent to 48 Newport drive, Winterton.

The agent for the application stated that this was a vacant site and this development would improve the visual appearance of the area, along with providing affordable housing in the area, and a contribution to improve open space in the village.

Cllr Rowson felt that this development was not in keeping with the surrounding dwellings, it was too intensive and had gone from three dwellings to five dwellings.

Cllr Ogg stated that he was not in favour of this development as the designs were not in keeping with the bungalows in the area.

Resolved – That planning permission be refused for the following reason:

The proposal represents over-intensive development which, by reason of the layout and designs of the property, would have an adverse effect on the character and appearance of the area. The proposal is thus contrary to saved policies DS1 and H8 of the North Lincolnshire Local Plan 2003.

(vi) 2015/1111 North Lincolnshire Property Ltd for planning permission for change of use of land for a builder’s yard at B8 (storage and distribution) and the erection of a concrete batching plant with ancillary office, land adjacent to Pro-Truck, Sandtoft Industrial Estate, Belton.

The agent for the application informed the committee that this planning permission was required and his client needed this land in order to maintain the business and protect current jobs. He stated that there was to be no expansion to the estate, and it was far enough away from dwellings to cause any nuisance to residents.

Cllr Allcock raised concerns in relation to the ongoing piecemeal development at the site.

Resolved – That planning permission be refused for the reasons contained in the report.

(vii) 2015/1144 Waves Consultancy Limited for planning permission for change of use of nine existing parking spaces to hand car wash and valeting operation, including installation of an office and erection of a canopy at Tesco Car Park, Gallagher Retail Park, Gunness.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations contained within the report.

(viii) 2015/1157 Uden Transport for planning permission to lay a hard surface and use land for the parking and storage of lorries and trailers, at land to the north of Station Farm Barn, Station Road, Thornton Curtis.

The applicant informed the committee that he was looking for alternative premises to store his lorries and trailers, and this was the only suitable site.  He said the site was currently vacant and hedgerows would be planted for the visual impact of the area and would cause no harm to residents within the area.

Cllr Hannigan stated that he supported industrial development but it had to be in the right place, and the problem was that Ferry Ward already has areas of heavy industry.  He felt that this was not the right site for a lorry park and was also outside the development boundary.

Cllr Allcock was concerned that this application was outside the development boundary and was not considered acceptable.  He felt that there would be better alternative sites for this proposal.

Resolved – That planning permission be refused in accordance with the recommendations within the report.

(ix) 2015/1174 Waves Consultancy Limited for advertisement consent to display non-illuminated signage at Tesco Car Park, Gallagher Retail Park, Gunness.

Resolved – That advertisement consent be granted.

(x) 2015/1187 Mr S Potter for planning permission to erect seven dwellings on land at Reginald Road, Scunthorpe.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted subject to the completion of a section 106 agreement, in accordance with the recommendations within the report.

(xi) 2015/1189 Mr J Bush for planning permission to retain change of use of part of existing driveway for the storage of vehicles in connection with an internet car sales business at Springfield Lodge, Wrawby Road, Wrawby.

Cllr C Sherwood raised concerns that this was on the A18, on a bend of a very busy and dangerous road. He informed the committee that he felt a site visit would be beneficial.

Resolved – That a decision on this application be deferred to allow the committee to have a site visit.

(xii) 2015/1269 Mr P Davies for outline planning permission to erect a detached dwelling and garage with appearance, landscaping, layout and scale reserved for subsequent approval, land north of Grey Green Farm, Woodhouse Road, Belton.

(i) a survey of the extent, scale and nature of contamination;

(ii) an assessment of the potential risks to:

– human health;

– property (existing or proposed), including buildings, crops, livestock, pets, woodland and service lines and pipes;

– adjoining land;

– groundwaters and surface waters;

– ecological systems;

– archaeological sites and ancient monuments;

(iii) an appraisal of remedial options, and a proposal of the preferred option(s).

This must be conducted in accordance with DEFRA and the Environment Agency’s ‘Model Procedures for the Management of Land Contamination, CLR 11′.

Part 2: Submission of Remediation Scheme
A detailed remediation scheme to bring the site to a condition suitable for the intended use by removing unacceptable risks to human health, buildings and other property and the natural and historical environment must be prepared, and is subject to the approval in writing of the local planning authority. The scheme must include all works to be undertaken, proposed remediation objectives and remediation criteria, a timetable of works and site management procedures. The scheme must ensure that the site will not qualify as contaminated land under Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 in relation to the intended use of the land after remediation.

Part 3: Implementation of Approved Remediation Scheme
The approved remediation scheme must be carried out in accordance with its terms prior to the commencement of development other than that required to carry out remediation, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the local planning authority. The local planning authority must be given two weeks’ written notification of commencement of the remediation scheme works.

Following completion of measures identified in the approved remediation scheme, a verification report (referred to in PPS23 as a validation report) that demonstrates the effectiveness of the remediation carried out must be produced, and is subject to the approval in writing of the local planning authority.

Part 4: Reporting of Unexpected Contamination
In the event that contamination is found at any time when carrying out the approved development that was not previously identified it must be reported in writing immediately to the local planning authority. An investigation and risk assessment must be undertaken in accordance with the requirements of Part 1, and where remediation is necessary a remediation scheme must be prepared in accordance with the requirements of Part 2, which is subject to the approval in writing of the local planning authority.

Following completion of measures identified in the approved remediation scheme a verification report must be prepared, which is subject to the approval in writing of the local planning authority in accordance with Part 3.
