Miss Bell introduced the application.
Additional information was on the agenda update sheet relating to the correction of a drawing number.
The following members of the public addressed the Committee:
· Mr R Collett – Applicant
· Mr M Edis – Applicant
During the discussion members sought clarification on a number of points. With regards to the road, footpaths, comments from the Highways authority, number of solar panels, additional car charging points and whether the additions made by the developers in response to climate change were sufficient. Following the discussions of previous meeting Mr Whitty reminded the Committee that although it was accepted that the declared climate change emergency required appropriate response, policy had not yet changed and this must be considered first. Mr Whitty drew the Committees attention to Policy 40 of the Local Plan and the report which cited the issues relating to climate change, how they had been addressed by the developers, and the information provided by the presentations at the public meeting two days previously. The Highway Authority had agreed that all necessary requirements had been addressed. Mr Whitty added that the addition of a third solar panel had been raised with the developers but this would add a cost and was over and above the requirements of Policy 40 of the Local Plan. Future occupants could add further panels and similarly occupants could install car charging points in their properties.
During the discussion, Members sought further clarification in regards to plot 29, bat and bird boxes, lack of vehicle access to the north, road width(4.6m/4.8m), water provision and the Architectural Design Strategy. Mr Whitty reminded the Committee that they could not create a ‘wish list’, or redesign the development at committee. Miss Bell responded that plot 29 would now be constructed with flint on all sides, requirements regarding bat and bird boxes were included in condition 12, condition 4 provided information in relation to access, and condition 11 provided information regarding bollards, restrictions and emergency access. Miss Bell confirmed the road widths were 4.8m (rather than 4.6 as previously stated), and explained that the most desireable routes of footpaths were difficult to predict but future established desire lines could be formalized in to footpaths at a later date by the management company. With regards to water Miss Bell drew the Committees attention to condition 13 which detailed the provision of water ‘fit for consumption’. Miss Bell added that the orientation of the roofs for solar panels had been agreed by the developers.
Members sought further clarification in regards to hedgehog routes, the robustness of trees to be planted, whether a car club space could be positioned in the first phase pending relocation following further phased construction, the future status of gas boilers, if a noticeboard could be installed, and access for construction traffic. Miss Bell confirmed hedgehog routes could be investigated and trees of an appropriate maturity would be ... view the full minutes text for item 5
