PS: Application No 19/00618/FUL - Bewes Stud, Prince Albert Drive, Ascot pdf icon PDF 470 KB

Change of use of land for use as a residential caravan site for no.4 x 2 bed caravans (park homes) with maximum measurements of 40ft x 20ft (12.192m x 6.096m) with associated landscaping, parking and turning following the demolition of existing buildings and removal of the manege.

Minutes:

Change of use of land for use as a residential caravan site for no.4 x 2 bed caravans (park homes) with maximum measurements of 40ft x 20ft (12.192m x 6.096m) with associated landscaping, parking and turning following the demolition of existing buildings and removal of the manege.

 

The Committee noted:

·        The supplementary papers tabled at the meeting

·        Winkfield Parish Councils comments as detailed in the agenda papers

·        A total of 45 objections as summarised in the agenda papers.

·        The representations from 2 speakers who joined the meeting.

·        6 further objections as detailed in the supplementary report.

 

A motion to approve the recommendation in the officer report was proposed but not

seconded.

 

Therefore an alternative motion to refuse the application was proposed and

seconded, and on being put to the vote was CARRIED.

 

RESOLVED that application 19/00618/FUL be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

01. The proposed change of use of the land for the siting of 4 mobile homes would result in a more intensive use of the site than the existing mixed use and as a consequence of this, would not preserve the openness of the Green Belt, and overall it is considered out of keeping with the surrounding pattern and form of development within Prince Albert Drive to the detriment to the rural character and visual amenities of the area defined as Green Belt. The proposal would therefore be contrary to Policies EN8 and GB2 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan and Policy CS9 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and NPPF paragraph 146.

 

 

02. The occupants of the development would put extra pressure on the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area and the proposal would not satisfactorily mitigate its impacts in this respect. In the absence of a planning obligation to secure suitable avoidance and mitigation measures and access management monitoring arrangements, in terms that are satisfactory to the Local Planning Authority, the proposal would be contrary to Policy NRM6 of the South East Plan, Policy EN3 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan, Policy CS14 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area Supplementary Planning Document (2018).

Application No 19/00862/FUL - Land Adjacent To Silver Trees, Birch Lane, Ascot pdf icon PDF 318 KB

Erection of single two storey dwelling.

Minutes:

Erection of single two storey dwelling.

 

The Committee noted:

 

·        The supplementary papers tabled at the meeting.

·        That the Parish Council raised no objection.

·        3 letters of representation were received, one in support of the application and two of objection.

 

As requested a recorded vote was taken on the motion and the voting was as follows:

 

FOR (14): Councillors Angell, Dr Barnard, D Birch, Brossard, Brown, Dudley, Gbadebo, Green, Mrs Hayes MBE, Mrs Mattick, Mrs McKenzie, Mrs McKenzie-Boyle, Mossom and Parker

 

AGAINST (3): Bhandari, Skinner and Virgo

 

 

RESOLVED that the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

01 The proposed development will result in tree removal including a large expanse

of woodland and will also adversely affect other trees which make an important

contribution to the landscape character and appearance of the area and are protected by Tree Preservation Orders. As such it would be contrary to Policies CS1, CS2, CS7, CS9 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and Policies H5, EN1, EN8 and EN20 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan, the Character Area Assessments SPD and the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

02 The occupants of the additional dwelling would put extra pressure on the Thames

Basin Heaths Special Protection Area and the proposal would not satisfactorily mitigate its impacts in this respect. In the absence of a planning obligation to secure suitable avoidance and mitigation measures and access management monitoring

arrangements, in terms that are satisfactory to the Local Planning Authority, the

proposal would be contrary to retained Policy NRM6 of the South East Plan, Policy

CS14 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document, the Thames Basin Heaths

Special Protection Area Supplementary Planning Document (2018) and the National

Planning Policy Framework.
