Heatherstone Lodge, Banbury Road, Finmere, MK18 4AJ pdf icon PDF 155 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 16/01209/OUT for a residential development and associated infrastructure at Heatherstone Lodge, Banbury Road, Finmere for Siteplan UK LLP.

 

Andrew Hirst, neighbour to the application site, addressed the committee in objection to the application.

 

Alex Cowling, agent for the applicant, addressed the committee in support of the application.

 

In reaching their decision, the committee considered the officers report, presentation, written update and the address of the public speakers.

 

Resolved

 

That application 16/01209/OUT be refused for the following reasons:

 

 

1.         The development proposed, by reason of its excessive scale in relation to the size and relative sustainability of Finmere, and taking into account Cherwell District Council’s ability to demonstrate an up-to-date five year housing land supply, is considered to be unnecessary, undesirable and unsustainable development that would prejudice a more balanced distribution of rural housing growth planned for in the Cherwell Local Plan (2011-2031) Part 1 and would undermine the housing strategy in the Cherwell Local Plan which seeks to distribute new housing to the most sustainable locations having regard to such matters as public services and facilities, transport and employment. Consequently the proposal is unacceptable in principle and contrary to Policies ESD1 and Villages 2 of the Cherwell Local Plan (2011-2031) Part 1 and Government guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

2.         The development proposed, by reason of its detached siting, excessive scale and poorly integrated relationship with existing built development, would cause significant and unacceptable harm to the historic linear form of the village, rural landscape character and quality of the area and the traditional setting of the village as experienced by local residents, visitors and users of old Banbury Road and the existing Public Rights of Way which run through and within close proximity to the site. The development would detract from the area’s established character and would fail to reinforce local distinctiveness. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policies ESD13, ESD15 and Policy Villages 2 of the Cherwell local Plan (2011-2031) Part 1, saved Policies C8 and C28 of the Cherwell local Plan 1996 and Government advice within the National Planning Policy Framework.

3.         By reason of the site’s location in an area of known archaeological interest with high potential for significant archaeological deposits to survive on site, and in the absence of a detailed and adequate archaeological field evaluation, the Local Planning Authority cannot be satisfied that the proposal would not result in unacceptable and unavoidable harm to archaeological assets. Thus, the proposal conflicts with Policy ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan (2011-2031) Part 1 and Government guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework.

4.         The Flood Risk Assessment submitted with this application does not comply with the requirements set out within the National Planning Policy Framework and does not sufficiently address the high risk area of flooding to the north of the boundary of the site. Thus, the submitted Flood Risk Assessment does not provide a suitable basis for assessment to be made of the flood risks  ...  view the full minutes text for item 111.

3.            The development hereby approved shall only proceed and be occupied in accordance with the recommendations contained in Sections 7 (Flood Warning and Dry Route of Escape) and 8 (Emergency Planning) of the Flood Risk Assessment prepared by Infrastruct CS Ltd dated October 2014 received from the applicant's agent by e-mail on 25th March 2015.

Land North of Gaveston Gardens and Rear of Manor Farm, Banbury Road, Deddington pdf icon PDF 171 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 16/01548/F, a full planning application for a residential development of 99 dwellings (Use Class C3) together with parking, public open space, landscaping and associated infrastructure at land north of Gaveston Gardens and rear of Manor Farm, Banbury Road, Deddington for David Wilson Homes (Mercia).

 

Parish Councillor David Rogers, Chairman of Deddington Parish Council, addressed the committee in objection to the application.

 

Councillor Pickford proposed that application 16/01548/F be refused by reason of its scale, layout and design and taking into account Cherwell District's ability to demonstrate an up to date housing land supply, the application was considered to be an overdevelopment of the site which would be out of keeping with the existing adjacent development and the character of Deddington Village as a whole, and cause harm to the rural setting and approach into the village. Councillor Sibley seconded the proposal.

 

In reaching their decision, the Committee considered the officers’ report, presentation, written update and the address of the public speaker.

 

Resolved

 

That application 16/01548/F be refused for the following reasons:

 

 

1.            The development proposed by reason of its scale, layout and design, taking into account Cherwell District's ability to demonstrate an up to date housing land supply is considered to be an overdevelopment of the site which would be out of keeping with the existing adjacent development and the character of Deddington Village as a whole, and cause harm to the rural setting and approach into the village. The proposal is therefore considered unacceptable and contrary to Policies ESD13 and ESD15 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 and saved Policies C28 and C30 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and the advice within the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

2.            In the absence of a satisfactory Planning Obligation, the Local Planning Authority is not convinced that the necessary infrastructure directly required as a result of this development, including affordable housing will be delivered. This would be contrary to INF1 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 and the advice within the National Planning Policy Framework.
