Disclosure of interests

    Members are asked to disclose any interests in matters for consideration at the meeting

    Minutes:

     

    Councillor Charmaine Morgan stated that she had been lobbied on application S20/0856 but approached consideration of the application with an open mind.

     

    Councillor Robert Reid made reference to application S18/2146 and stated that he was a County Councillor who served on the Planning Committee. Having sought advice it was agreed that it was not a disclosable pecuniary interest but requested that it be noted for openness and transparency.

     

    Councillor Phil Dilks stated, in reference to application S20/0311, that although not a disclosable pecuniary interest, he was the Chairman of Langtoft, The Deepings and District Branch of The Royal British Legion.

     

    Councillor Helen Crawford advised that she was registered to speak on applications S19/2111 and S19/2134, therefore as a member of this Committee, would not participate in the debate nor vote on these two items.

     

    Councillor Milnes advised that application S20/0875 was located within her ward and had suggested a condition but had not been lobbied.

     

    Councillor Adams made a statement regarding application S18/2146.  He advised members that he was a Member of Lincolnshire County Council, who had served as substitute member of the Planning Committee when Deeping Parish Council applied for Village Green Status, in July 2019.  Councillor Adams advised that he had supported the officer recommendation for the application to not be granted.  At the time this application was considered he was not a member of South Kesteven District Council Planning Committee.  Having sought legal advice from the Monitoring Officer, it was advised that Village Green Legislation and Planning Legislation was separate, therefore there would be no conflict of interest in considering application S18/2146.  Councillor Adams advised that he would approach the consideration of the application with an open mind.

    Noting comments made during the public speaking session by:

    District Councillor:                  Councillor Phillip Knowles

                                                     Councillor Anna Kelly

                                                     Councillor Sue Woolley

                                                     Councillor Helen Crawford

     

    Against:                                   Jonathan Budd

                                                     Shaun Sinnott

     

    Applicant’s Agent:                  Andrew Hodgson

    Together with:

           Provisions within the National Planning Policy Framework and the         South Kesteven Local Plan and supplementary planning documents

                 Site visit observations

                 Objections from Bourne Town Council

                 No comments from the Environment Agency

                 Suggested condition from Anglian Water

                 Advice from Black Sluice Internal Drainage Board

                 Following liaison and initial response, no objections, subject to conditions from Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) Highways and SuDS

                 Section106 contribution request from LCC Education

                 Condition request from Heritage Lincolnshire

                 No comment from Natural England

                 S106 contribution request from NHS

                 Comment from South Kesteven District Council (SKDC) Affordable Housing Officer

                 Request from Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue

           Representations received as a result of public consultation

    ·             The additional information report issued on 26 October 2020; and officer comment thereon

           Comments made by members at the meeting

     

    Members noted the following concerns regarding the application:

     

    ·             The proximity to the Farm

    ·             Significant community objection

    ·             Social housing located in just one area of the proposal, rather than integrated into the wider development

    ·             Not a sustainable location; nearest transport links around 500 metres away

    ·             Drainage

    ·             Impact to the A15 and increased traffic

    ·             Insufficient S106 agreement proposals

     

    It was proposed, seconded and agreed that the application be refused for the following reasons: 

     

    1.          The submitted Statement of Community Involvement, together with the feedback from the public, Town Council and Neighbourhood Plan Group during consultation on the application has very clearly demonstrated that the proposal does not have substantial community support. The proposal also fails to satisfy the criteria to be considered to be a rural exception site. The proposed is therefore contrary to Local Plan Policy SP4 and there are no overriding material considerations, including the identified need for affordable housing in Bourne, that outweigh this fundamental conflict with the Development Plan.

     

    2.          The layout and extent of the proposed development, would not relate well to the existing built form and would appear as a poorly designed and incongruous encroachment into open countryside contrary to Local Plan policies EN1, DE1 and SP4 as well as the provisions of the NPPF (section 12).

     

    3.          The proposed development is not located in sustainably location, and the site does not offer a range of transport choices that reduces the need to travel by car and is not located within an accessible distance to a range of services and facilities. The proposal is therefore contrary to Local Plan Policies SP1, SD1 and ID2 and section 9 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

             No element of affordable housing has been proposed within the retirement apartments contrary to Local Plan Policy H2 and the NPPF.

     

             Insufficient information has been submitted with the application to enable the local planning authority to fully assess whether the potential impacts of flood risk and drainage would be acceptable, contrary to Local Plan Policy EN5 and NPPF section 14.

    13:14 - As the meeting had been in progress for 3 hours, the Chairman asked for Members’ consent to continue. Members agreed.

     

    Members noted the following concerns regarding the application:

     

    ·             Highly valued area, greatly used by residents for recreational purposes

    ·             Detrimental effect to health and well-being

    ·             Removal of mature trees

    ·             The emerging Neighbourhood Plan

     

    It was proposed, seconded and agreed unanimously that the application be refused for the following reasons: 

     

    1.          The submitted Statement of Community Involvement, together with the feedback from the public, Town Council and Neighbourhood Plan Group during consultation on the application has very clearly demonstrated that the proposal does not have substantial community support. Furthermore, the proposal would not meet a proven local need or address a specific targeted need for local market housing, that is not already provided for by allocated sites. It is therefore contrary to Local Plan Policy SP4 criteria (a) and (e). There are no overriding material considerations that outweigh this fundamental conflict with the Development Plan.

     

    1.          The proposal would result in an unacceptable adverse impact on the open and rural character and appearance of the area, contrary to Local Plan policies DE1, EN1 and criteria b. and d. of SP4

     

    The meeting was adjourned at 13:33 and reconvened at 14:01.

    Proposal:        Erection of war memorial

    Location:         Main Square, Market Deeping   

    Decision:         Minded to refuse the application

    Noting comments made during the public speaking session by:

    District Councillors:        Councillor Virginia Moran

                                             Councillor Ashley Baxter

     

    Together with:

    ·             Provisions within the National Planning Policy Framework and the South Kesteven Local Plan and supplementary planning documents

    ·             Site visit observations

    ·             Comments from Market Deeping Town Council

    ·             No objections, noting licence requirement from LCC Highways and SuDS Support

    ·             Concerns raised by SKDC Historic Buildings Advisor

    ·             Representation received as a result of public consultation

    ·             The additional items paper issued on 26 October 2020 and officer comment thereon

    ·             Comments made by Members at the meeting

     

    Members noted the following concerns regarding the application:

     

    ·                  Appropriateness of the proposed location

    ·                  The area would appear cluttered with the abundance of street furniture

    ·                  Proposed style and material not in keeping with the area

    ·                  Lack of public consultation

    ·                  No support from local remembrance groups

    ·                  No information of the inscription

    ·                  Effect on the setting of listed buildings within the conservation area

    ·                  Blocks a local business frontage

     

    A proposition was made and seconded, for the deferral of the application, until the following had been completed:

     

    ·             An in-depth public consultation

    ·             Details of the proposed inscription

     

    On being put to the vote, the proposition was lost.

     

    The vote was not carried.

     

    A further proposition by Members was made; it was proposed and seconded that the Committee refuse the application.

     

    Committee Members suggested the following reasons for refusal:

     

    ·       Contrary to policy EN6 of the South Kesteven Local Plan

    ·       Contrary to policy DE1 of the South Kesteven Local Plan

    ·       Contrary to paragraph 127 of the National Planning Policy Framework

     

    The Interim Head of Development Management stated that he would be able to accept the reasons for refusal as defensible planning reasons. However, as the proposition to refuse the application was contrary to officer recommendations, the cooling off period set out in Article 9.1.9 (c) of the Council’s Constitution was invoked in accordance with the Virtual Planning Committee Protocol.

     

    In accordance with the Constitution, a recorded vote was taken:

     

    For:                  Councillors David Bellamy, Harrish Bisnauthsing, Helen Crawford, Phil Dilks, Penny Milnes, Charmaine Morgan, Robert Reid, Judy Smith and Bob Adams

     

    Against:           Councillor Mike Exton

     

    Abstain:           Councillors Mrs Rosemary Kaberry-Brown and Ian Selby

     

    The vote was carried and those Committee members who voted in favour of refusal of the application had five working days to provide the Interim Head of Development Management with the planning reasons for their view, together with supporting evidence. The application would be placed on the agenda for consideration at the next meeting of the Planning Committee when the Interim Head of Development Management would provide his opinion on whether the reasons advanced were substantial enough for the Authority to defend the decision at an inquiry. In light of any additional information, the committee would then be empowered to determine the application without being fettered by their vote at the previous meeting.
