In discussing the application, Members referred to the original 2001 Masterplan for the Elsea Park development. Concerns were expressed about the proposed layout and Members indicated a preference for the original indicative Masterplan. In addition to comments that were made about the single road access to the site, Members remarked about foot and cycleway linkages across the site and safe routes for children to access designated play areas.

 

Some Members mentioned the design and appearance of the proposed dwellings; the design of the buildings at the gateway of the site was noted and a suggestion made that design across the site, should be reviewed with a view to securing improvements. Members also spoke about the proposed housing mix for the development and a desire to see lifetime homes being built.

 

The Committee noted the concerns of local residents regarding drainage issues and wanted to ensure that drainage arrangements would be sufficient to accommodate this phase of the development together with those zones for which applications were yet to be received. While the response from the Environment Agency stated that they wished to make no comments in respect of the application, Members felt it would be more helpful to have a positive response stating that it had no objection.

 

It was proposed and seconded that the application be deferred to allow further discussion regarding improving design by referring the application to the design panel and to review the layout. The proposition also incorporated following up with the Environment Agency and working with the Welland and Deeping Internal Drainage Board to consider the drainage implications of this and future phases of the development.

 

On being put to the vote, the application was deferred.

 

15:13-15:32 – the meeting adjourned

16:02 – Councillors Exton and Kaberry-Brown left the meeting and did not return.

 

16:10 – As the meeting had been in progress for 3 hours, the Chairman asked for Members’ consent to continue. Members agreed.

 

During debate Members referred to pieces of land that abutted the site and future connectivity as those other parcels of land were developed. The additional items paper issued on 9 November 2018 proposed two amended conditions to ensure connectivity. Some concern was expressed by Members as the trigger for the proposed connectivity conditions was “prior to the occupation of the twenty-fifth dwelling”. Consequently it was suggested that the conditions be re-worded to ensure that links would be built:

 

5.    Notwithstanding the submitted Indicative Master Plan drawing number: LNBU 390793-03D, none of the dwellings hereby permitted shall be occupied until pedestrian, vehicle and bicycle connectivity is provided from the development site to the land immediately abutting the east of the site in accordance with details to have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

 

6.    Notwithstanding the submitted Indicative Master Plan drawing number: LNBU 390793-03D, none of the dwellings hereby permitted shall be occupied until pedestrian and bicycle connectivity is provided from the development site to Thorold Road to the north of the site in accordance with details to have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

 

It was proposed, seconded and agreed that the application be approved for the reasons set out in the case officer’s report and subject to the conditions set out on pages 44 to 46 of the case officer’s report subject to the amendments noted above, and subject to prior completion of a Section 106 agreement to secure the requirements specified in paragraph 10.  Provided that if the Section 106 Agreement has not been completed within 6 weeks of the date of this meeting and the Head of Development Management,  ...  view the full minutes text for item 39c

Members were advised of an additional condition that was being recommended, which would restrict occupation of the new build dwellings to over-55s:

 

”Other than any warden’s accommodation, the newbuild dwellings hereby permitted shall be used for the purposes of retirement accommodation only. Occupiers shall be:

 

i)             Persons of 55 years or over;

ii)            Other persons who are living as part of a single household with a person or persons aged 55 years or over;

iii)           Persons who were living as part of a single household with a person or persons aged 55 years or over who have since died.”

 

It was proposed, seconded and agreed that the application be approved for the reasons set out in the case officer’s report and subject to the conditions set out on pages 60 to 67 of the case officer’s report, together with the additional condition noted above, and subject to prior completion of a Section 106 agreement to secure the requirements specified in paragraph 8.  Provided that if the Section 106 Agreement has not been completed within 6 weeks of the date of this meeting and the Head of Development Management, after consultation with the Chairman or Vice Chairman of the Development Management Committee, considers there are no extenuating circumstances which would justify an extension (or further extension) of time, the Head of Development Management be authorised to refuse the application on the basis that the necessary infrastructure or community contributions essential to make the development acceptable have not been forthcoming.
