    In discussing the application, members raised concerns about the proposed use of ivory render on houses at focal points within the development. Members had been advised that the rendered finish had been selected because, from a distance, it mimicked the colouring local stone. Members however did not feel that this was sufficient, expressing instead a preference to use local limestone, feeling that it was more in-keeping with the local area and the drive to improve design standards. It was therefore suggested that, should the application be approved, this should be the subject of a condition.

    Members were also concerned about the width of the joint cyclepath and footway running east/west across the site. Members did not consider the proposed 2m width was sufficient for both pedestrians and cyclists to safely use the path. It was suggested that, in the event the application be granted, a condition should be added stating that the footpath should be 3m wide.

     

    It was proposed, seconded and agreed that the application be approved for the summary of reasons set out in the case officer’s report and subject also to the following conditions:

    During the public speaking session concerns had been raised about the impact of the A1 on air quality and how it would affect the residents living in the development. Reference was made to the volume of particulates within the air and members felt it would be helpful to have the opportunity to verify that information, ask for further information from the Environmental Protection Team and consider this information in the context of DEFRA guidelines. Some concern was also expressed about the noise residents would experience as a result of the proximity of the A1.

     

    It was proposed, seconded and on being put to the vote, agreed that the application be deferred to discuss the air quality implications.

     

    12:45 to 13:15 – the meeting adjourned. Councillors Selby and Jacky Smith joined the meeting following the adjournment

     

    13:15 - As the meeting had been in progress for 3 hours, the Chairman asked for Members’ consent to continue. Members agreed

    Committee members were interested in the concerns that had been raised by the representative from Long Bennington Parish Council regarding lorries parking overnight. There was acknowledgement that the issue was not solely caused by the development but there was an indication that there were occasions when lorries waiting to access the site had to park overnight. Members asked whether it would be possible for Roseland Business Park to provide a facility for lorry drivers waiting to access the site to park overnight. The applicant’s agent indicated that it would be for tenants to put access arrangements in place

     

    Some concern was also expressed about lorries seeking to access the site from the north, which would have to travel through the village of Long Bennington.

     

    It was noted that at this outline stage there was no indication of the types of business that would occupy the units on the business park and the level of HGV movements that they would generate. In order to develop a unit when a new business came forward, it would be necessary to submit a reserved matters application which would need to be accompanied by a travel plan.

     

    It was proposed, seconded and agreed that the application be deferred to provide an opportunity to undertake discussions about lorry parking provision to ensure that the application conformed with paragraph 107 of the National Planning Policy Framework, which stated that “planning policies and decisions should recognise the importance of providing adequate overnight lorry parking facilities, taking into account any local shortages, to reduce the risk of parking in locations that lack the proper facilities or could cause a nuisance…”.
