Before the Development is Commenced

 

2.          Prior to commencement, a drainage strategy shall have been submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority. Notwithstanding the details as shown on drawing numbers: FW2060-D-400-01, 02 and FW2060-E-500-01, 02 the proposed drainage strategy shall incorporate a SuDS drainage design for the disposal of surface water run-off from the proposed development site including the provision of a detailed drainage strategy report with geotechnical interpretive reports (infiltration assessments, ground water tables, hydraulic calculations). The scheme shall:

 

-     be based on sustainable drainage principles and an assessment of the hydrological and hydrogeological context of the development;

-     provide flood exceedance routing for storm event greater than 1 in 100 year;

-     provide details of how run-off will be safely conveyed and attenuated during storms up to and including the 1 in 100 year critical storm event, with an allowance for climate change, from all hard surfaced areas within the development into the existing local drainage infrastructure and watercourse system without exceeding the run-off rate for the undeveloped site;

-     provide attenuation details and discharge rates which shall be restricted to 1.4 litres per second;

-     provide details of the timetable for and any phasing of implementation for the drainage scheme;

  and

-     provide details of how the scheme shall be maintained and managed over the lifetime of the development, including any arrangements for adoption by any public body or Statutory Undertaker and any other arrangements required to secure the operation of the drainage system throughout its lifetime.

         

No dwelling shall be occupied until the approved scheme has been completed or provided on the site in accordance with the approved phasing. The approved scheme shall be retained and maintained in full, in accordance with the approved details.

 

The permitted development shall be undertaken in accordance with the approved surface water drainage scheme.

 

Reason: To ensure that the permitted development is adequately drained without creating or increasing flood risk to land or property adjacent to, or downstream of, or upstream of, the permitted development, in accordance with Policy EN5 of the SKDC Local Plan 2020.

 

3.          No development shall take place until a Construction Management Plan and Method Statement has been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority which shall indicate measures to mitigate against traffic generation and drainage of the site during the construction stage of the proposed development.

 

The Construction Management Plan and Method Statement shall include;

-     phasing of the development to include access construction;

-     the parking of vehicles of site operatives and visitors;

-     loading and unloading of plant and materials;

-     storage of plant and materials used in constructing the development;

-     wheel washing facilities;

-     the routes of construction traffic to and from the site including any off site routes for the disposal of excavated material and;

-     strategy stating how surface water run off on and from the development will be managed during construction and protection measures for any sustainable drainage features. This should include drawing(s) showing how the drainage systems (permanent or temporary) connect to an outfall (temporary or permanent) during construction.

         

The Construction Management Plan and Method Statement shall be strictly adhered to throughout the construction period.

         

Reason: To ensure that the permitted development is adequately drained without creating or increasing flood risk to land or property adjacent to, or downstream of, the permitted development during construction and to ensure that suitable traffic routes are agreed.

 

4.          The permitted development shall be undertaken in accordance with an Estate Road Phasing and Completion Plan, which shall first be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority prior to any development above ground level. The Plan shall set out how the construction of the development will be phased and standards to which the estate roads on each phase will be completed during the construction period of the development.

         

        Reason: To ensure that a safe and suitable standard of vehicular and pedestrian access is provided for residents throughout the construction period of the development.

 

Before the Development is Occupied

 

5.          Before any dwelling is occupied, all of that part of the estate road and associated footways that forms the junction with the main road and which will be constructed within the limits of the existing highway, shall be laid out and constructed to finished surface levels in accordance with details to be submitted to, and approved in writing by, the Local Planning Authority.

         

Reason: In the interests of safety, to avoid the creation of pedestrian trip hazards within the public highway  from surfacing materials, manholes and gullies that may otherwise remain for an extended period  at dissimilar, interim construction levels.

 

6.          The development hereby permitted shall not be occupied before the provision of two sets of  pedestrian crossing points have been provided on Swinstead Road as indicated on drawing number '100-527AR/005Q' to connect the development to the existing footway network, has been provided in accordance with details that shall first have been submitted to, and approved in writing by, the Local Planning Authority. The works shall also include appropriate arrangements for the management of surface water run-off from the highway.

       

        Reason: To ensure the provision of safe and adequate pedestrian access to the permitted development, without increasing flood risk to the highway and adjacent land and property.

 

7.          Before any part of the development hereby permitted is occupied/brought into use, all hard landscape works shall have been carried out in accordance with the approved hard landscaping details.

       

Reason: Hard landscaping and tree planting make an important contribution to the development and its assimilation with its surroundings and in accordance with Policy DE1 of the adopted South Kesteven Local Plan.

 

8.          Before the end of the first planting/seeding season following the occupation/first use of any part of the development hereby permitted, all soft landscape works shall have been carried out in accordance with the approved soft landscaping details.

         

Reason: Soft landscaping and tree planting make an important contribution to the development and its assimilation with its surroundings and in accordance with Policies DE1, EN3 and OS1 of the adopted South Kesteven Local Plan.

 

9.          Before any part of the development hereby permitted is occupied/brought into use, a landscape management plan shall have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The plan shall include:

         

    i.   long term design objectives,

    ii.  management responsibilities and

    iii. maintenance schedules for all landscape areas, other than privately owned, domestic gardens.

         

Reason: Hard and soft landscaping and tree planting make an important contribution to the development and its assimilation with its surroundings and in accordance with Policies DE1, EN3 and OS1 of the adopted South Kesteven Local Plan.
