During debate on the proposed development, Members considered what would be acceptable within permitted development rights. Discussion also ensued about the Historic Buildings Advisor’s comments and the proximity of the site both to a neighbouring listed building and the nearby Conservation Area.

 

It was proposed and seconded that the application be refused contrary to officers’ recommendation because the proposed development was too near to, and therefore harmed the setting of, the neighbouring listed building. The Head of Development Management confirmed that the reason for refusal was acceptable, permitting the Committee to make a decision outright without invoking the cooling-off period in accordance with the Council’s Constitution. On being put to the vote, the proposition was carried and the application refused contrary to officers’ recommendation.

·         Site visit observations

·         Comments made by Members at the meeting

 

During their discussions Members considered the impact of noise on local residents (both of the racing vehicles and any public address system used at events) and how local residents were affected by the current, nearby track, anticipated times and frequency of use, highways safety and access to the site and the activities that would be permissible under permitted development rights. It was also noted that the proposed consent was for a one-year trial period to give the planning authority an opportunity to monitor and assess the impact of the development on local residents.

 

A proposal was made and seconded that the application be approved for the reasons listed in the case officer’s report. A number of Members expressed concern about how any conditions would be effectively enforced. The proposition to approve the application was withdrawn when it was suggested that by deferring the application to enable the submission and assessment of a traffic management plan, an access management plan and a noise management plan, Committee members would have more certainty about what they were considering and how any permission would be managed.

 

It was proposed, seconded and agreed that the application be deferred for the applicant to submit a traffic management plan, an access management plan and a noise management plan for assessment by SKDC’s Environmental Health team and Lincolnshire County Council Highways, with the application being placed on the agenda for the next available meeting of the Development Management Committee.

 

Members also asked that, when the application was next brought before the Committee, the report included the number of complaints made about the current site and the action that had been taken by the Council’s Environmental Health team.

Members commented on the visuals shown during the officer presentation. The Committee considered the situational context of the proposed development and felt that the buff bricks that were listed as the intended material should, on the front elevation, be as close a match as possible to the traditional Stamford yellow brick and agreed that should the application be approved, this should be added to the permission as an informative. It was also suggested that the informative should also refer to the colour of the render on the plans for the middle three units, which Members noted created the impression of a contrast to the yellow brick on the remainder of the elevations.
