Minutes:

Erection of 33 dwellings (including 10 affordable dwellings), with car parking, landscaping, open space and access from Herschel Grange, following demolition of 6 Herschel Grange.

 

The Committee noted:

·         The supplementary report tabled at the meeting.

·         The comments of Warfield Parish Council l recommending refusal.

·         The 41 objections from 33 addresses as detailed in the agenda.

·         A further letter of objection submitted on behalf of the Warfield Village Action Group.

·         The 11 further objections as detailed in the supplementary report.

·         The representations from 2 public speakers who joined the meeting.

 

A motion to approve the recommendation in the officer report was proposed but fell at the vote.

 

Therefore an alternative motion to refuse the application was proposed and seconded, and on being put to the vote was CARRIED.

 

RESOLVED that application 19/00497/FUL be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

1. The proposed development would have a harmful, urbanising impact on the character and appearance of the countryside and would be unsympathetic to the character of the adjacent settlement, contrary to Policies EN8, EN20 and H5 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan and Policies CS1, CS2, CS7 and CS9 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document, and the NPPF. 

 

2. 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 monitoringarrangements, 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 Avoidance and Mitigation Supplementary Planning Document (2018), and the NPPF.

 

3. In the absence of a planning obligation to secure affordable housing in terms that are satisfactory to the Local Planning Authority, the proposal is contrary to 'Saved'' Policy H8 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan, Policies CS16 and CS17 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document, the Planning Obligations SPD, the resolution on affordable housing made by BFC Executive on 29 March 2011, and the NPPF.

 

4. The proposed development would unacceptably increase the pressure on open space of public value and community facilities. In the absence of a planning obligation in terms that are satisfactory to the Local Planning Authority, and which secures the on-site provision of open space of public value, the proposal is contrary to Policy R4 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan, Policies CS6 and CS8 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document, the Planning Obligations SPD, and the NPPF.

 

5. It has not been demonstrated that the proposed development would incorporate a sustainable drainage system (SuDS) for the management of surface water run-off which would be maintained for the lifetime of the development. This is contrary to Policies CS1 and CS6 of the Core Strategy Development Plan  ...  view the full minutes text for item 82.
