The Chairman made the following announcements:

 

Site Visits

The Chairman explained that the usual standing agenda item “Proposed Pre-Committee Site Visits (if any)” had not been included on the agenda. In light of the current Government restrictions and measures to minimise the spread of Covid-19, the Committee would need to give serious consideration to the necessity of site visits and Planning Officers were considering on a case by case basis if a site visit is essential or if there is an alternative to a site visit. 

 

At the request of the Chairman, the Interim Senior Manager – Development Management, updated the Committee on application 19/02708/F, Bicester Heritage, Buckingham Road, Bicester, which Members had agreed at their February 2020 meeting to have hold a pre-committee site visit.

 

The Interim Senior Manager – Development Management explained that officers had been liaising with the applicant about suitable alternatives to a site visit. The applicant had offered to use drones to record across the site thereby enabling a virtual site visit.

 

The Committee endorsed the approach and agreed to advise Planning Officers if there was anything in particular, they would like to see on the site visit drone footage.

 

Adjournment

The Chairman advised that due to the length of the agenda, he would call a short adjournment after around two hours at a suitable time in proceedings.

6.

Urgent Business

The Chairman to advise whether they have agreed to any item of urgent business being admitted to the agenda.

Land Adj to Promised Land Farm, Wendlebury Road, Chesterton (1740) pdf icon PDF 103 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

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

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 19/01740/HYBRID, a 'Hybrid' planning application comprising outline planning permission (all matters reserved except for access) for B1 development (Use Classes B1a and/or B1b and/or B1c); highway works (including provision of a new roundabout at the junction between Vendee Drive and Wendlebury Road); creation of a wetland and landscaped areas and associated infrastructure works and full planning permission for a health and racquets club, associated access and car parking, outdoor tennis courts, air dome, outdoor swimming pool, spa garden and terrace, and associated landscaping at land adjacent to  Promised Land Farm, Wendlebury Road, Chesterton (1740) for Mr Kelvin Pearce.

 

Paul Troop, Bicester Bike Users Group, and Richard Cutler, local resident, addressed the Committee in objection to the application.

 

Mike Pollard, Banbury Ornithological Society, Emma Lancaster, agent for the applicant and Simon Parfitt, David Tucker Associates, addressed the Committee in support of the application.

 

Councillor Wood proposed that consideration of application 19/01740/HYBRID be deferred as the application should be considered alongside the recently submitted new application for Phase 1 of the Bicester 10 allocation and the highway works and obligations were not sufficient to mitigate the impact of the development. Councillor Sibley seconded the proposal.

 

At the request of the Chairman the Principal Planning Officer, Caroline Ford, and Joy White, Transport Development Control Lead at Oxfordshire County Council, addressed the Committee to explain the proposed development must be considered on its own merits and consideration of the two schemes together was not necessary or justified by Policy Bicester 10, which does not require a comprehensive approach to development of this allocation. The highway works and obligations requested were what has been considered necessary by Oxfordshire County Council as Local Highways Authority, to mitigate the impact of the development proposed.

 

Councillor Wood subsequently advised he was withdrawing his proposal to defer consideration of the application.

 

Councillor Sibley proposed that consideration of application 19/01740/HYBRID be deferred as the application should be considered alongside the recently submitted new application for Phase 1 of the Bicester 10 allocation and the highway works and obligations were not sufficient to mitigate the impact of the development. Councillor Middleton seconded the proposal.

 

The motion to defer the application was debated and on being put to the vote was lost and subsequently fell.

 

It was proposed by Councillor Clarke and seconded by Councillor Reynolds that application 19/01740/HYBRID be approved in line with the officer recommendation.

 

In reaching its decision the Committee considered the officers’ report and presentation, the addresses of the public speakers and the written update.

 

Resolved

 

(1)           That authority be delegated to the Assistant Director for Planning and Development to grant permission for application 19/01740/HYB, subject to:

 

(i)             the completion of a planning obligation under section 106 of the town and country planning act 1990, as substituted by the planning and compensation act 1991, to secure the following (and any amendments as deemed necessary):
