To consider and determine the attached Schedule of Planning Applications submitted by the Executive Director.

Additional documents:


The Committee considered schedules of applications for planning permission submitted by the Executive Director for Planning & Environment (copies of the schedules are published with the agenda).  Any changes to the schedules are recorded in the minutes.


RESOLVED:   That, the applications be determined, as set out at (i) – (ix) below, where appropriate, to the conditions and reasons or grounds of refusal, set out in the schedules signed by the Chairman. 


(i)         18/01320/OM

            Feltwell:  Long Lane Farm, 30 Long Lane:  Outline application:  Residential development for a maximum of 19 dwellings following demolition of existing:  Mrs Christine Barrett


The application did not need to be considered as the Section 106 had been completed and signed within the originally approved timescale.


(ii)        18/02200/RMM

            Ingoldisthorpe:  Land around pond and west of 30 Hill Road, Lynn Road:  Reserved major application:  Residential development and new public amenity area:  Mr Ben Marten


The Committee had visited the site prior to the meeting.


The Senior Planner introduced the report and explained that the application site was located on the south-west edge of the village of Ingoldisthorpe, at the crossroads of the main Lynn Road (B1440) running north south and Hill Road running east west.  Hill Road ran along the northern boundary of the site whilst the main B1440 defined the western boundary. 


To the east of the site boundary were existing detached residential properties and to the north, on the opposite side of the road, was a series of two storey, predominately terraced properties.


To the west, on the opposite side of the road was walled, formal recreational land with marked pitches and to the south were grass fields with a tree-lined boundary.  An existing naturally-occurring pond was located in the north-west corner of the site.


Currently the site was grassed, open land used for grazing.  A low post and wire fence defined the north and west boundaries.


Outline planning permission was approved on appeal in 2016 for residential development on the site (reference 15/00854/OM).  Access was the only matter for consideration at that stage with appearance, landscaping, layout and scale being matters reserved for future consideration.  The reserved matters application therefore sought consent for those outstanding matters.


Whilst the application was for 12 dwellings on the site it was of particular note that the proposal was for a Custom Self-Build development.  10 of the homes would be self or custom build homes and the remaining 2 plots would be affordable housing.


The key issues with the self-build scheme were that the site would be constructed in phases and that each plot would ultimately be designed by the plot owner.  The application therefore sought a degree of flexibility in the final detailed design of the external appearance of each self-build dwelling.


The application had been referred to the Committee for determination as the views of the Parish Council were contrary to the officer recommendation.


The Committee noted the key issues for consideration when determining the application, namely:

·        Design,  ...  view the full minutes text for item PC126:
