Land South of Blakesley Hill, Greens Norton pdf icon PDF 224 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused, reasons to be set out in the minutes.

Minutes:

The Committee considered application S/2020/1376/MAO for up to 69 dwellings, with associated access, landscaping, open space, and drainage infrastructure (all matters reserved other than access) at land south of Blakesley Hill, Greens Norton for Richborough Estates.

 

A pre-recorded address from Angela Smedley, agent for the applicant, speaking in support of the application was played to the Committee.

 

A pre-recorded address from Chris Bowmer, on behalf of Greens Norton Parish Council, speaking in objection to the application was played to the Committee.

 

Councillor Charles Manners, Local Ward Member, addressed the Committee in objection to the application.

 

In reaching its decision the Committee considered the officer’s report and presentation, and the address of the public speaker.

 

Resolved

 

(1)  That application S/2020/0223/MAO be refused for the following reasons:

 

REASONS FOR REFUSAL

 

1.    The application site lies outside the settlement confines of Greens Norton as designated in in the adopted South Northamptonshire Local Plan (Part 2) and is therefore in open countryside. The adopted Development Plan seeks to focus new development within the settlement boundaries of settlements and be of an appropriate scale to the existing settlement. The development proposed would therefore conflict with an up to date and adopted Development Plan, in particular Policy R1(e) and R1(g) of the adopted West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy 2014 and Policies SS1 and LH1 of the adopted South Northamptonshire Local Plan (Part 2). In addition, to permit the development would conflict with paragraphs 12 and 47 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

2.    The development would result in localised landscape harm through the loss of an undeveloped field that forms part of the open countryside setting of Greens Norton, adversely affecting the character of this part of the village. The development would therefore conflict with Policy R1(b) of the 2014 West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy, Policy SS2(1a) of the South Northamptonshire Local Plan (Part 2), and paragraph 170 of the NPPF.

 

3.    Policies INF1 and INF2 of the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy 2014 are concerned with infrastructure and developer contributions, and state that 'developers will be expected, in negotiation with the Local Planning Authority to make provision for related infrastructure and community facilities the need for which arises from the development’. This is consistent with the National Planning Policy Framework. In the absence of a signed legal undertaking the Council cannot be satisfied that the development proposal would make sufficient provision to mitigate the impacts of the development on existing community services and infrastructure serving the development including early years and primary education infrastructure; affordable housing; public open space and facilities (including maintenance); public transport and off site highway improvements; refuse/recycling infrastructure; libraries and primary healthcare infrastructure. The application is therefore contrary to Policies H2, INF1 and INF2 of the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy 2014, Policies LH8, INF1 and GS1 of the South Northamptonshire Local Plan (Part 2) and the adopted Supplementary Planning Document ‘Developer Contributions’ (December 2010).
