Demolition of non-original extensions to Sydney Lodge (Grade II* Listed Building) and redundant factory buildings. O/18/84191

 

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report by the Head of Housing and Development (Agenda Item 7) concerning an outline planning application with all matters reserved (except for means of access) for the construction of up to 148 residential dwellings (Use Class C3) with new vehicular access to Hamble Lane, alterations to Kings Avenue and Coronation Parade, new car parking for existing sports facilities, employment use and residential properties, landscaping, improvements to existing bowls and football facilities on site and other associated works. Demolition of non-original extensions to Sydney Lodge (Grade II* Listed Building) and redundant factory buildings (O/18/84191).

 

The Head of Housing and Development gave the following updates:

  • HCC Highways confirm no objection in principle subject to minor detail design changes as part of the S278 process.
  • 6 letters of objection following notification of the committee date raising issues set out in the agenda
  • Corrections
    • Para 43 – artificial pitch not artificial footpath
    • Para 116 – Hamble Lane not Providence Lane
    • Para 121 – not common and but former airfield site
  • Condition 1 to be updated to reference highway plans “17055-00-146_P05”
  • Additional condition - The development here by approved shall not be occupied or brought in to use until the access is constructed broadly in accordance with dwg 17055-00-146_P05. Reason: In the interest of highway safety.

 

The Committee debated the item and whilst noting that a lot of work had been carried out since July the following areas of concern were raised:  this represented overdevelopment, the Council already had a five year housing supply, schools were already at capacity with children having to travel off the peninsula to attend school, additional traffic on Hamble Lane which was already over capacity, impact on waiting times at the Doctors surgery which was already struggling to cope with demand and the money for sport not being spent in the village.

 

The Committee noted the recommendation to Permit.  A motion to refuse the granting of the permission was proposed and seconded by Councillors.

 

RESOLVED -

 

That the Committee noted offices recommendation to Grant Outline Approval but to refuse the scheme for the following reasons:

 

1. The proposals represent an inappropriate and unjustified form of development beyond the urban edge which would result in the loss of countryside and have an unacceptably urbanising impact to the detriment of the character, visual amenity, and the quality of the landscape of the locality. The application is therefore contrary to Saved Policies 1.CO, 18.CO, and 59.BE(i) of the adopted Eastleigh Borough Local Plan Review (2001-2011), emerging policies S1(ix), S7, DM1 i(a) of the submitted Eastleigh Borough Local Plan (2016 – 2036) and the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

2.  The application fails to demonstrate that an appropriate means of access can be provided to serve the development without unacceptable impact and interference on the footpath and cycleway infrastructure, to the detriment of the ease of use and safety of pedestrians and cyclists. The proposals are therefore contrary to the requirements of Saved Policies 59.BE (v), 92.T and 102.T of the adopted Eastleigh Borough Local Plan Review 2001-2011, emerging policies DM13 of the submitted Eastleigh Borough Local Plan (2016 – 2036) and the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework

 

3.  The proposal involves development that cannot be reconciled with the National Planning Policy Framework in that the significant movements generated by the proposed residential development, when considered cumulatively with the potential for a growth in traffic associated with the retained commercial activities on site, could not be accommodated adequately on Hamble Lane and its junctions with adjoining roads. This would result in a severe  ...  view the full minutes text for item 44.
