Minutes:

Erection of 10no. dwellings including the creation of a new access road following the demolition of 77 and 79 Deepfield Road.(Resubmission 15/00445/FUL)

 

A site visit had been held on Saturday 14 July 2018, which had been attended by Councillors Angell, Brossard, Dudley, Mrs Ingham, Mrs McKenzie and Thompson.

 

The Committee noted:

 

·         The supplementary report of the Head of Planning tabled at the meeting.

·         The comments of Bracknell Town Council recommending refusal of the application.

·         The three letters of objection were received from five neighbouring properties.

 

It was noted by the Committee thatDeepfield Road was covered by a Resident's Parking Zone (RPZ); and that the new residential estate serving this site should be included within the RPZ. This would not prevent existing residents, and their visitors from parking along the new access road; though it would limit this to existing permits holders, and those properties outside of the zone would be restricted from parking along this new access road. The cost of this should be secured via s106 obligation. The road was being sought for adoption; and if it were excluded from the RPZ, then this would not preclude vehicles from parking on-street, or any parking bays within it. Therefore, it was advised that by including the new development in the RPZ it would protect parking in the area for all those concerned.

 

Following debate, the Committee agreed an additional sum to be used by the Council to provide a Traffic Regulation Order on the access road to prevent on street parking, this would be secured through a section 106 Agreement.

 

Following the completion of planning obligation(s) under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 relating to:-

 

- Measures to avoid and mitigate the impact of residential development upon the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA).

- Contribution towards Deepfield Road being covered by RPZ Zone.

- Contriution towards the Traffic Regulation Order.

 

 

RESOLVED that the Head of Planning be authorised to APPROVE the application subject to the following conditions amended, added to or deleted as the Head of Planning considers necessary:-

 

01. The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.                             

REASON:  To comply with Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990

 

02. The development hereby permitted shall be carried out only in accordance with the following approved plans received by the Local Planning Authority on 1 March 2018, 22 May 2018, 8 June 2018, 27 June 2018 and 5 July 2018:

18/00566/FUL Manor Farm House, Binfield Road, Binfield, Bracknell, Berkshire RG42 4LX pdf icon PDF 275 KB

Erection of 1.8m high timber weave panel boundary fence.

Minutes:

Erection of 1.8m high timber palisade boundary fence.

 

A site visit had been held on Saturday 14 July 2018, which had been attended by Councillors Angell, Brossard, Dudley, Mrs Ingham, Mrs McKenzie, Thompson.

 

The Committee noted:

 

·         The supplementary report of the Head of Planning tabled at the meeting.

·         The comments of Warfield Parish Council raising no objections to the application.

·         The one comment objecting to the application.

 

RESOLVED that the application is REFUSED for the following reasons:-

 

01.  The development by way of its urbanising and incongruous appearance detracts from the setting of the Listed Building of Manor Farm House, thereby reducing the significance and desirability of this Heritage Asset. The development is therefore contrary to Policies CS1 and CS7 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document, the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 (as amended) and the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

02.  The development results in an unduly prominent and urbanising feature that is incongruous in the streetscene of Binfield Road, and therefore detracts from the established character of the area. The development is therefore contrary to 'Saved' Policy EN20 of Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan, Policy CS7 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document, the Design Supplementary Planning Document, the Streetscene Supplementary Planning Document and the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

03.  The development would result in a reduction in visibility to the north for vehicles egressing the site, particularly in respect of cyclists utilising the shared footway and cycle path. The development therefore results in an adverse impact on highway, particularly as Binfield Road is a classified ‘B’ highway, and is contrary to Policy CS23 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document, and the National Planning Policy Framework.
