Erection of storage and distribution warehouse (Use Class B8) and office building including associated car parking, perimeter security fencing and new vehicular access from Chessingham Park. [Osbaldwick and Derwent Ward]

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Members considered a major full application from Joanne MacLean for the erection of storage and distribution warehouse (Use Class B8) and office building including associated car parking, perimeter security fencing and new vehicular access from Chessingham Park at the Former Storage Facility Site, Derwent Valley Industrial Estate, Dunnington.

 

The Development Manager gave a presentation on the application and provided an update which amended 1.1 of the report to thirty three car parking spaces rather than fifty. Condition 14 had been removed as the issue was covered by condition 12.

 

In response to questions from Members, officers clarified that:

·        The number of electric vehicle (EV) charging points was in line with the guidance provided to developers.  If Members wished to increase the number in the guidance, the Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) would need to be changed.

·        It was agreed to re-examine the wording of condition 3, as this appeared to exclude hybrid vehicles from using the EV points. 

·        Officers would request an explanation for the low emissions strategy which had been written by Public Protection (PP).

·        The solar panels and air source heat pumps were shown on the plans and were therefore integral to the application.

·        A highway construction management plan was not considered necessary due to the location and lack of requirement for road closures.

 

There were no public speakers for the application.  Cllr Fenton moved to approve the officer recommendation.  This was seconded by Cllr Fisher.  On being put to the vote, with Members voting unanimously in favour, it was;

 

Resolved: 

 

                     i.        That the application be approved subject to the recommended S106 agreement and the amendment and conditions contained within the update, as outlined above.

 

                    ii.        The Development Manager would seek clarification for Condition 3, whether it was correct that it excluded the charging of hybrid vehicles, and amend accordingly.

 

Reason:     The development would accord with the NPPF, the Draft Local Plan (2005) and the Draft Local Plan (2018). On balance, the proposal complied with the thrust of national and local planning policy.

Installation of timber clad container for use as security cabin. Construction of gravel path. [Rural West York Ward]

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Members considered a full application from Alastair Gill for the installation of timber clad container for use as security cabin and the construction of gravel path.

 

The Development Manager gave a presentation on the application detailing the site plan and access roads.  There were no updates for the Committee and the officer responded to further questions from Members as follows:

 

·        The container was to be placed within the business park which was a developed area withinthe Green Belt.

·        The number of businesses on the park that operated with delivery restrictions was not to hand, officers had not come across any records of enforcement.

·        To condition the hours of use of the cabin would negate the applicant’s intention for the cabin.

 

Public Speakers

 

The Chair read out a statement on behalf of local residents who objected to the application.  This outlined a number of their concerns including increased traffic levels and HGV’s parking overnight in the entrance and running their engines. They requested deferment of the item until a site visit could be arranged for Members.

 

Alastair Gill, the applicant, spoke in support of the application. He highlighted the benefit for both the site and neighbours of having a constant security presence on site.  He also explained the current operation of the site and how access to the site would be improved.  In response to questions, he confirmed that the management company enforces the delivery restrictions imposed on some businesses and that there had been no enforcement notices issued.  There was no expected difference in the timing or frequency of deliveries. 

 

Cllr Looker moved to approve the officer recommendation, this was seconded by Cllr Fenton.  On being put to the vote, with seven Members in favour and one abstention, it was;

 

Resolved:            That the application be approved.

 

Reason:              The application site lies within the general extent of the Green Belt but due to the scale and location of the proposal it was not considered to constitute inappropriate development. The proposed gatehouse was not considered likely to harm neighbour amenity. Subject to conditions for precaution methods to protect nesting birds the proposal complies with the Neighbourhood Plan, the National Planning Policy Framework, and the Publication Draft Local Plan 2018.

Officers responded to further questions from Members as follows:

 

·        The height of the proposed roof was detailed in paragraph 5.44 of the report.  The height increase starts further back due to the flat roof inset around the perimeter of the arched roof.

·        The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) was the national policy on design and should be weighted accordingly.

 

Public Speaker

 

Alexander McCallion, Director of Works at York Minster, spoke in support of the application.  He explained the plans for the Technology Hub and Centre of Excellence, the sustainable nature of the development and noted the co-dependent nature of the application with item 4e. Following Member questions, he confirmed that the roof height was dictated by the machinery in the workshop below as well as by the solar panels.

 

Following debate, Cllr Looker proposed the officer recommendation to approve the application.  This was seconded by Cllr Craghill.  On being put to a vote, with Members voting unanimously in favour, it was;

 

Resolved:

 

                             i.        That the application be approved subject to the addition of a construction environmental management plan (CEMP) and the additional conditions contained in the update.
