2008    APPLICATION DEFERRED FROM PREVIOUS MEETING – In accordance with the decision at the previous meeting, members had undertaken site visit on the morning of the meeting.  The Group Manager – Development Management and Building Control submitted reports and updated them orally.

(Cllr Poole having declared a personal and prejudicial interest left the meeting for the following item).

(i)   PA/2019/1844 by Mr Paul Elsome, Withane Property Services Limited for planning permission to erect a detached dwelling and associated works at land adjacent to Temperance Avenue, Messingham, DN17 3SF.

Cllr J Davison stated that having been on the site visit he felt that the development was too large with a loss of amenity, it was overbearing, and overlooking other properties.

Cllr Bainbridge also felt that it was over development for the site.

It was moved by Cllr J Davidson and seconded by Cllr Armiger –

That planning permission be refused for the following reason:

The proposed development would result in an overdevelopment of the site to the detriment of the character and appearance of the area and would have an unacceptable overbearing impact on the neighbouring property to the rear due the scale of the proposed dwelling and the limited separation distance between them. The proposed development is therefore contrary to policies DS1 and H5 of the North Lincolnshire Local Plan and policy CS5 of the North Lincolnshire Core Strategy.

Motion Carried.

2009   MAJOR APPLICATIONS – The Group Manager – Development Management submitted a report containing details of major applications for determination by the committee, including summaries of policy context, representations arising from consultation and publicity and assessment of the applications.

(i)       PA/2018/2416 by Mr N Mattu for outline planning permission to erect 11 dwellings with some matters reserved for subsequent consideration at land off King Edward Street, Belton, DN9 1QN.

The agent spoke on behalf of the applicants. In doing so he said the development would meet the needs of the local community by providing the new dwellings. He stated that it would fit well into the settlement pattern, it was a sustainable development and there was a Ned for bungalows in the vicinity.

Cllr Robinson spoke as the local ward member in support of the application.  He said the 11 new properties would be a welcome addition in Belton, especially with the addition of seven bungalows.  He said it was in a sustainable location, and would be a valuable addition to the village.

Cllr J Davison agreed with the previous speakers and stated it was a nice development for the area with the impact on the landscape being minimal. He said the area had been an eyesore for a long time and the development would improve the character of the area.

Cllr Grant stated that he would be voting against the development as it was outside the development boundary, and there was nothing in the officer’s report that stated there was a need for bungalows in the area.  Cllr L.Foster was of the same opinion.

It was moved by Cllr J Davison and seconded by Cllr Wells –

If unexpected contamination is found after development has begun, development must be halted on that part of the site affected by the unexpected contamination to the extent specified by the local planning authority in writing until part 4 has been complied with in relation to that contamination.

Part 1: Site Characteristics

An investigation and risk assessment, in addition to any assessment provided with the planning application, must be completed in accordance with a scheme to assess the nature and extent of any contamination on the site, whether or not it originates on the site. The contents of the scheme are subject to the approval in writing of the local planning authority. The investigation and risk assessment must be undertaken by competent persons and a written report of the findings must be produced. The written report is subject to the approval in writing of the local planning authority. The report of the findings must include:

(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).

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.

Reason
To ensure that risks from land contamination to the future users of the land and neighbouring land are minimised, together with those to controlled waters, property and ecological systems, and to ensure that the development can be carried out safely without unacceptable risks to workers, neighbours and other off-site receptors in accordance with policy DS7 of the North Lincolnshire Local Plan.

2010  PLANNING AND OTHER APPLICATIONS – The Group Manager – 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)  PA/2019/751 by Mrs Julie Welch for planning permission to install dormer with associated works at 18 St James Road, Scawby, DN20 9BD.

An objector spoke against the application with concerns of overlooking, privacy issues, and the dormer being too big in size and differing from the original application that was submitted.

Cllr J Davidson said it would be difficult to find reason to refuse the application and agreed with the officer’s recommendation.

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

(ii)    PA/2019/841 by R Tyson for outline planning permission to erect nine dwellings with all matters reserved for subsequent consideration at land east of Strathdee, Barrow Road, Goxhill, DN19 7LN.

The agent spoke in support of the application sating that no objections had been received, it was a sustainable settlement and the officer’s report stated all the facts.

Cllr J Davidson said it appeared to be a reasonable development, and the previous reasons for refusal had been dealt with.

Cllr Wells stated it was an unacceptable site and there was a big problem with water in Goxhill, and the systems were already struggling and this would just add to the problems.  He also felt there were speeding issues in the area and was against the application.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations contained within the officer’s report subject to a unilateral undertaking.

(iii)    PA/2019/842 by Mr R Tyson for outline planning permission to erect eight dwellings with all matters reserved for subsequent consideration at land north of 6 Thornton Road, Goxhill, DN19 7HN.

Resolved
– That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations contained within the officer’s report subject to a unilateral undertaking.

(iv)   PA/2019/904 by Mr Paul Singh for outline planning permission to erect five detached dwellings, including the demolition of 7 Mill Road and associated works, with appearance, landscaping and scale reserved for subsequent consideration at land to the rear of 7 Mill Road, Crowle, DN17 4LW.

An objector spoke to the committee and in doing so stated that he was no against the demolition of the bungalow as it was an eyesore. However, he did have concerns about the application and the accuracy of the plans submitted as he felt the boundaries were wrong.  He said it would have an impact on residents parking, and drainage to neighbouring properties.

Cllr J Davison asked the planning officer for clarification over the accuracy of the plans, and stated that he would like a site visit if there was any uncertainty.

Resolved – That the application be deferred to the next meeting to allow the committee to visit the site.

(v)    PA/2019/1039 by Mr & Mrs Thorpe for outline planning permission to erect a dwelling with all matters reserved for subsequent consideration at land adjacent to 56 Bigby High Road, Brigg, DN20 9HD.

An objector urged the committee to refuse the application as it was outside the development boundary, it was contrary to planning policy and he felt it would make no contribution to the local economy.

The agent highlighted it was just outside the development boundary on a grass paddock, and it would make a natural end to the current developments.

Indicating that it would contribute to the five year land supply, in a sustainable location, and there was no technical objections in principal.

Cllr J Davison said he could not support the application as there was too many planning policy breaches, including the fact that it was outside the development boundary.

It was moved by Cllr J Davison and seconded by Cllr Armiger –

That planning permission be refused for the following reason:

The application site is located wholly outside the defined development boundary for Brigg and as such is within the open countryside. No essential need for a dwelling in this location has been demonstrated through the application nor has a justification been provided to show that the development could not be located within a defined development boundary. The proposed development is therefore contrary to policies CS2, CS3 and CS8 of the North Lincolnshire Core Strategy and policy RD2 of the North Lincolnshire Local Plan.

Motion Carried.

(vi)   PA/2019/1288 by Mr Amin Chaudhary, Kembles Holdings Ltd for planning permission to erect two pairs of semi-detached dwellings with associated works at 6 Chesswick Avenue, Keadby, DN17 3DG.

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

(vii)   PA/2019/1779 by Mr Eric Heath for outline planning permission to erect a dwelling with all matters reserved for subsequent consideration at land to the rear of Corner House, 3 Newbigg, Westwoodside, DN9 2AT.

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

(viii)  PA/2019/1783 by Mr Martin Hutson for planning permission to vary condition 2 of planning permission PA/2016/1777 to create basement and associated works at land adjacent to 30 High Street, Burton upon Stather, DN15 9DE.

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

(ix)   PA/2019/1839 by Mr Martin Hutson for planning permission to erect a detached garage at land adjacent to 30 High Street, Burton upon Stather

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

(x)   PA/2019/2017 by Mr & Mrs Potter for planning permission to erect a dwelling at Newland Farm, Blackdykes Road, Owston Ferry, DN9 1AQ.

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

(xi)   PA/2019/2026 by  Mr Chris Morley for outline planning permission to erect four semi-detached dwellings with all matters reserved for subsequent consideration at land west of Brigg Road, Wressle.

Resolved– That planning permission be refused in accordance with the reasons contained within the officer’s recommendations.

(xii)  PA/2019/2035 by Mr Chris Morley for outline planning permission to erect four single-storey dwellings with all matters reserved for subsequent consideration at land adjacent to 17 Common Road, Wressle, DN20 0DH.

An objector addressed the committee and highlighted that it was a greenfield site, and was unsuitable for the application requested. It was previously refused and felt that the same reason for refusal should still apply.

The agent speaking on behalf of the applicants stated that the previous refusal was not relevant t this application. He stated that it was an outline application, in a sustainable location, and the four units would just be a continuation of the dwellings already there.

Cllr Wells having listened to all the comments felt that the development would change the character of the village, and agreed with the officer’s recommendations for refusal.

Resolved – That planning permission be refused in accordance with the reasons contained within the officer’s recommendations.

(xiii)   PA/2019/2067 by Mr Johnson and Miss Hinkley for planning permission to erect a two-storey extension with associated works at Westwood Lodge, Ermine Street, Broughton, DN20 0BG.

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

(xiv)  PA/2019/2110 by Mr Steve Sowerby, T G Sowerby Developments Ltd for planning permission to erect seven dwellings including associated works at Former Coal Yard, Grange Lane South, Scunthorpe, DN16 2NW.

Cllr Grant indicated he had no problem with the development. However, there was too many highway issues with the location, it was a very busy road all the time and the right turn would be very dangerous.  He said it should be a left turn only and then he could support it.

Resolved – That planning permission be granted in accordance with the recommendations contained within the officer’s recommendations.

2011 APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL OF RESERVED MATTERS FOLLOWING THE GRANT OF OUTLINE PERMISSION FOR DETERMINATION BY THE COMMITTEE – The Group Manager  Development Management and Building Control submitted a report outlining an application for reserved matters.

(i)   PA/2019/1738 by Mr M Bielenica for application for approval of reserved matters (appearance, landscaping, layout and scale) pursuant to outline planning permission PA/2017/298 to erect a dwelling at Redlands, 108 Akeferry Road, Westwoodside, DN9 2NF.

An objector stated that the plans were different to the original plans, and the development would alter the appearance of the area.  He said there was an increase in the footprint, and was much taller than the neighbouring properties. Privacy, flooding, and the size were all concerns for his objection.

Speaking in support of the application the agent indicted that the roof had been reduced in size, and was similar in size to other properties within the area. There was no intention to make the garage a living area.

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