    Members’ attention was drawn to the post-meeting note, which had been included in the minutes, clarifying that Councillor Reid was recusing himself from being consulted on the draft consultation letter in respect of application S19/1244 (Sudbrook Quarry, land west of Rookery Lane, Sudbrook).

    A Committee member proposed adding three further conditions to those listed in the report. The suggested additional conditions were:

    ·       Limiting the use of the site to water skiing and wake boarding

    • Representations received as a result of public consultation
    • Reference to the requirement for a Master Plan that encompassed the proposed design for all three sites together with an insight into connectivity between the sites
    • Significant changes and additions to the proposed site
    • Provisions within the National Planning Policy Framework, the South Kesteven Core Strategy and supplementary planning documents
    • Site visit observations
    • Comments made by members at the meeting

     

    Members debated the application at length and expressed concerns about: the significant changes in this application to the one previously submitted for the outline planning application; the siting of a retail store that had now been included in the plan and would require a separate planning application; the lack of the master plan for all three sites; the distribution of affordable housing, whether this site, which was 100% affordable housing would be the only affordable housing provision across the three sites or whether the other two sites would also contain 35% affordable housing in addition to this site.  Members felt there should be more integration of types of housing across the proposed three sites.

     

    Members acknowledged the work that had been undertaken to improve the design of the site since the outline planning permission stage but were concerned that the Master Plan was only just being consulted on and was not at a stage that included the design proposals for the other two sites. Members felt the planning application had been premature in its submission.

     

    It was proposed and seconded that the application be refused because it was considered contrary to section LVH3 of the Council’s adopted Local Plan, the application was therefore considered premature as it preceded the Masterplan which was required for the site.  Members also considered the application was not in accordance with the original approved outline application.
