Co-op, 26 High St, Kidlington pdf icon PDF 152 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 15/01872/F for the erection of new buildings off Sterling Road Approach to contain 44 x 2 bedroom flats, the conversion of offices above existing retail store to form 8 x 2 bedroom flats, and alterations to existing retail store including the construction of new accesses, car parking, service and turning areas and landscaping at Co-op, 26 High Street, Kidlington for Midcounties Cooperative Society and Cantay Estates Ltd.

 

Councillor Carmen Griffiths addressed the committee as local Ward member.

 

David Betts, a Kidlington Parish Council Councillor, addressed the committee in objection to the application.

 

In reaching their decision, the committee considered the officers report, presentation, written update and the address of the local ward member and public speaker.

 

Resolved

 

That application 15/01872/F be refused, for the following reasons:

 

1.            The proposed development is contrary to Policy Kidlington 2 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 and the aspirations of the recently adopted Kidlington Framework Masterplan supplementary planning document in that it does not allow for the meeting of the objectives and aspirations of the latter document for the strengthening of the village centre through use of mixed use redevelopment opportunities and through improving connectivity between areas of the village centre, and consequently does not contribute significantly to the regeneration of the village centre as required by Policy Kidlington 2

 

2.            In the absence of the completion of a satisfactory Planning Obligation the Local Planning Authority is not convinced that the necessary infrastructure directly required both on and off the site, including the provision of appropriate affordable housing, will be provided. Therefore the proposal would be contrary to Policies INF1, BSC3, BSC10 and BSC11 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 and the advice contained in the National Planning Policy Framework

Land South West Of Woodbank, Mill Lane, Kirtlington pdf icon PDF 187 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 16/02295/OUT, an outline application for the erection of 10 No dwellings at land South West of Woodbank, Mill for Mr E & G King.

 

Helen Macbeth, Deputy Chair of Kirtlington Parish Council, addressed the committee in objection to the application.

 

Paul Brailsford, agent for the applicant and Keith Neill Smith, the architect for the applicant, addressed the committee in support of the application.

 

Councillor Macnamara proposed that application be refused as it would be contrary to Policies ESD13, ESD15 and Villages 2 of the Cherwell Local Plan (2011-2031) Part 1, saved Policies C8 and C28 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and Government guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework. Councillor Wood seconded the proposal.

 

In reaching their decision, the Committee considered the officers report and presentation and the addresses of the public speakers.

 

Resolved

 

That application 16/02295/OUT be refused for the following reasons:

 

1.            The development proposed, by reason of its poorly integrated relationship with existing built development and its extension beyond the built limits of the village, would cause significant and unacceptable harm to the historic linear form of the village and the rural landscape setting of the village as experienced by local residents, visitors and users of Mill Lane and the existing Public Right of Way which runs 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 Villages 2 of the Cherwell Local Plan (2011-2031) Part 1, saved Policies C8 and C28 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and Government guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

2.            In the absence of adequate detail of how the footpath link from the site to Hatch Way would be provided it has not been demonstrated that the development would not have an unacceptable impact upon the three Beech trees protected by TPO, and so the proposed development would potentially have a detrimental impact upon the health and amenity value of these trees and the rural character and visual amenities of the area. The development therefore fails to comply with Policies ESD13 and ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan (2011-2031) Part 1, saved Policy C28 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and Government guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

3.            In the absence of the completion of a satisfactory Planning Obligation, the Local Planning Authority is not convinced that the necessary infrastructure directly required both on and off site as a result of this development, in the interests of supporting the sustainability of the village and the development, and in the interests of safeguarding public infrastructure and securing on site future maintenance arrangements, will be provided. This would be contrary to Policies INF1, PSD1, SLE4, ESD1, BSC11 and Villages 2 of the Cherwell Local Plan (2011-2031) Part 1 a
