To receive a report of the Head of Planning, Economy and Regeneration with regard to this application.
The Committee had before it * report of the Head of Planning, Economy and Regeneration regarding the above application.
The Area Planning Officer outlined the contents of the report highlighting by way of presentation the location of the proposal to the southern section of the site; this was a hybrid application which also considered a full application for part of the site containing the road link into the neighbouring land parcel over the existing bridleway, and the Pegasus bridleway crossing over the new link road. The latter was provided in detail to ensure alignment with the adjacent section of the road, where it crossed into a separate application site. She highlighted the illustrative plan and provided photographs from various location looking into the site.
Consideration was given to:
· Whether there would be any ransom strips and whether the road would join up, the officer stated that non-ransom provisions were to be included within the S106 agreement, it was intended to build the road all in one go and the road would be 6.5 metres wide.
· Whether the link road would be accessible from the estate
· Maintenance issues
· The views of the Town Council with regard to the houses facing onto the link road in the illustrative diagram: this would be addressed within the reserved matters
· The view of the applicant with regard to the delivery of the road.
RESOLVED that planning permission be granted subject to: the prior signing of a Section 106 agreement and conditions as recommended by the Head of Planning Economy and Regeneration.

In view of this the request for planning conditions as stated in my response to the application are no longer required as improvements to the foul drainage network will be delivered by South West Water to ensure the development can be supported without detriment to the public foul drainage systems.
Condition 25 should therefore be deleted.

Again, your officers consider this amendment to be reasonable.
