Land At Tappers Farm, Oxford Road, Bodicote, Banbury, OX15 4BN pdf icon PDF 146 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 18/00792/OUT, an outline application (all matters reserved except for access) for the demolition of existing buildings and erection of up to 46 no. dwellings, with associated works and provision of open space Land At Tappers Farm, Oxford Road, Bodicote, Banbury, OX15 4BN for Hollins Strategic Land LLP.

 

Councillor Adam Hewins, on behalf of Bodicote Parish Council, addressed the committee in objection to the application.

 

Stephen Harris, agent for the applicant, addressed the committee in support of the application.

 

Councillor Heath proposed that application 18/00792/OUT be refused as the application would be contrary to Policy Villages 2 and Policy ESD15 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 Part 1 and saved Policies C15 and C33 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan 1996. Councillor Perry seconded the proposal.

 

In reaching their decision the committee considered the officers’ presentation, report and written update.

 

Resolved

 

That application 18/00792/OUT be refused for the following reasons:

 

1.                 Taking into account the number of dwellings already permitted across the Category A villages and Cherwell District Council's ability to demonstrate a 5.4 year housing land supply, which exceeds the requirement for a 3 year housing land supply the proposal is unnecessary and undesirable as it would result in development of an area of open land which is important in distinguishing the settlements of Banbury and Bodicote and would undermine the character and identity of Bodicote. This would be contrary to Policy Villages 2 and Policy ESD15 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 Part 1 and saved Policies C15 and C33 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan 1996.

 

2.                 In the absence of the completion of a satisfactory Planning Obligation under s106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, the Local Planning Authority is not convinced that the necessary infrastructure directly required to mitigate the impact of this development will be provided. This would not be in the interests of delivering sustainable, mixed and balanced communities by providing affordable housing, appropriate public open space and its future maintenance arrangements, providing adequate health services and community and sports provision, meeting education needs and enhancing sustainable transport options. This would be contrary to Policies INF1, BSC3, BSC7, BSC10, BSC11, BSC12 and SLE4 of the adopted Cherwell Local Plan (2011-2031) Part 1, the Council's Adopted Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) (February 2018) and the National Planning Policy Framework.

Dewey Sports Centre, Barley Close, Bloxham, Banbury, OX15 4NJ pdf icon PDF 135 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 18/01252/F for the erection of 12 floodlights, extension of existing car park, relocation of long jump, and associated landscaping at Dewey Sports Centre, Barley Close, Bloxham, Banbury, OX15 4NJ for Bloxham School.

 

Councillor McHugh addressed the committee as Ward member.

 

David Warlow, a local resident, addressed the committee in objection to the application.

 

Paul Sanderson, Head Teacher of Bloxham School, addressed the committee in support of the application.

 

Councillor Heath proposed that application 18/01252/F be refused as the proposed development would be contrary to Policies ESD13 and ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011 - 2031 Part 1, saved Policy C28 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996, Policy BL11 of the Bloxham Neighbourhood Plan 2015-2031 and Government guidance contained in the National Planning Policy Framework. Councillor Billington seconded the proposal.

 

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

 

Resolved

 

That application 18/01252/F be refused for the following reason:

 

1.                 The site is prominent within an attractive and visually sensitive landscape which affords wide-ranging views to Bloxham village. The proposed twelve 12.5m masts with floodlights, due to their siting, scale and illumination, would create a substantial block of light beyond the built confines of the village and highly visible in the landscape.  As such, the proposal would have a visually intrusive impact, harmful to the intrinsic character of the surrounding area. Therefore, and in the absence of sufficient mitigation of the visual harm, the proposed development would be contrary to Policies ESD13 and ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011 - 2031 Part 1, saved Policy C28 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996, Policy BL11 of the Bloxham Neighbourhood Plan 2015-2031 and Government guidance contained in the National Planning Policy Framework.

Additional documents:

Decision:

Approved, subject to various requirements to be set out in the Minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 18/01610/CM, a Section 73 application for the continuation of development permitted under 15/01660/CM (MW.0123/15) (for the winning and working of limestone and clay at Dewars Farm as an extension to Ardley Quarry) without complying with conditions 1 and 2, to allow the quarry to continue operating beyond 2020, to permit working until 2028 and restoration by 2029 at OS Parcels 0069 4900 7761 7980 7600 0003 And 3100 North East Of Dewars Farm And East Ardley Road, Middleton Stoney for Smith And Sons (Bletchington) Ltd. Cherwell District Council was a consultee on the application which would be determined by Oxfordshire County Council.

 

In reaching their decision, the committee considered the officer’s report and presentation.

 

Resolved

 

That having noted that Officers have considered the overall benefits of the proposals against the harm having regard to the development plan and other material considerations and have concluded that the proposal can be supported, and that Cherwell District Council should therefore raise no objection to the development, Oxfordshire County Council be advised that Cherwell District Council raises no objection to the proposal. The reasons for reaching this conclusion are summarised below:

 

1.               Government guidance contained within the NPPF and PPG attaches great weight to the benefits of mineral extraction and encourage flexibility with timings in order to prevent minerals from becoming sterilised.

 

2.               Whilst the temporary harm to the visual amenities of the area would be extended, the ultimate restoration of the site would continue to be secured via planning condition.

 

3.               The Environmental Protection Team has no comments to make regarding the scheme and the impact upon environmental pollution and residential amenity is therefore considered acceptable.  Previous planning conditions relating to the prevention of environmental pollution would continue to apply.
