Erection of building for storage, scorers box and WC/kitchen facilities following the removal of existing mower garage and pre-fabricated garage to rear of pavilion [Rawcliffe and Clifton Without Ward] [Site Visit]

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Members considered a full application from Paul Walton for the erection of building for storage, scorers box and WC/kitchen facilities following the removal of existing mower garage and pre-fabricated garage to rear of pavilion.

 

The Development Manager outlined the site layout and elevations. He advised that the NPPF indicated that very special circumstances cannot exist unless the potential harm to the Green Belt by reason of inappropriateness, and any other harm, is clearly outweighed by other considerations.

 

The Development Manager then provided an update advising Members of the additional proposed conditions and informative notes related to drainage.

 

Following debate it was:

 

Resolved:  That the application be approved subject to the conditions listed in the report and the following additional conditions and drainage informative notes:

 

Additional Condition 1:

The area indicated for storage on the approved plans shall be used for storage only and no other use ancillary to the operation of the site as a cricket club.

Reason: In the interests of residential amenity.

 

Additional Condition 2:

 

The site shall be developed with separate systems of drainage for foul and surface water on and off site.

 

Reason: In the interest of satisfactory and sustainable drainage.

 

Additional Condition 3:

No development shall take place until details of the proposed means of foul and surface water drainage, including details of any balancing works and off site works, have been submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority.

 

Reason:  So that the Local Planning Authority may be satisfied with these details for the proper and sustainable drainage of the site.

 

Additional Condition 4:

 

Unless otherwise approved in writing by the local planning authority, there shall be no piped discharge of surface water from the development prior to the completion of the approved surface water drainage works and no buildings shall be occupied or brought into use prior to completion of the approved foul drainage works.

 

Reason:  So that the Local Planning Authority may be satisfied that no foul and surface water discharges take place until proper provision has been made for their disposal.

 

Informative notes: Drainage

                                i.              The public sewer network does not have capacity to accept an unrestricted discharge of surface water. Surface water discharge to the existing public sewer network must only be as a last resort, the developer is required to eliminate other means of surface water disposal.

 

                               ii.              The applicant should be advised that the Internal Drainage Board’s prior consent is required for any development including fences or planting within 9.00m of the bank top of any watercourse within or forming the boundary of the site. Any proposals to culvert, bridge, fill in or make a discharge to the watercourse will also require the Board’s prior consent.

 

 

 

Reasons:

                             i.        The site lies within the general extent of the Green Belt as identified in the RSS to which S38 of the 1990 Act applies. The proposal is therefore assessed against more restrictive policies in the NPPF relating to protecting the Green Belt.
