This item invites Members to determine the following planning application:
Members considered a schedule of reports of the Head of Planning and Development Services relating to the following planning applications, outlining the proposals and relevant policy considerations and setting out the views of consultees and officers.
Reserved matters application for outline consent the erection of 20no. employment units (Use Classes B1(b), B1(c), B2 and B8) with means of access and landscaping included following the grant of outline permission 18/02744/OUTM [Wheldrake Ward]
Members considered a major reserved matters application from James Nellist for outline consent the erection of 20no. employment units (Use Classes B1(b), B1(c), B2 and B8) with means of access and landscaping included following the grant of outline permission 18/02744/OUTM for Lindum Group Limited, York Road, Elvington York.
The Head of Planning and Development Services gave a presentation on the application noting the access into the site, the site location plan, elevations and landscaping. The Head of Planning and Development Services and Development Management Officer responded to Member questions as follows:
· The request from Elvington Parish Council regarding putting a 'Stop' sign as vehicles exited the site onto York Road could be examined as part of the discharge of conditions.
· The speed limit on York Road was 30mph.
· Regarding the reduction of planning on the western boundary, as much planting as possible would try to be achieved through the discharge of conditions.
· The developer could not be asked to fund tree planting offsite as this was a reserved matters application and planting would be looked as part of the discharge of conditions.
· Members were shown where trees were located on the site location plan.
· It was confirmed that landscaping could be included as an informative.
· Electric vehicle charging was included in condition 19 of the outline planning consent.
· Regarding the trees shown on drawings for the outline planning application and the reserved matters application, the landscaping shown on those drawings was illustrative.
At this point in the meeting the Senior Solicitor reminded Members that before them was a reserved matters application for appearance, layout and scale of the proposed development and that landscaping was not a matter for consideration.
Cllr Webb proposed and Cllr Pavlovic seconded approval of the application with the addition of an informative on landscaping with a request that the applicant work with the Parish Council to establish landscaping offsite as a good will gesture. On being put to the vote with 12 in favour and one abstention, it was;
Resolved: That the application be approved subject to the conditions listed in the report and the addition of an informative in relation to landscaping.
i. The reserved matters application provides the details required following the outline planning permission. The layout and form of development proposed and the landscaping principles accord with the outline permission. The details accord with the expectations established at outline stage and national policy within the NPPF and local policy within the 2018 eLP regarding design and landscaping.
