Denise Feasey and Richard Roberts spoke in objection to the application.

Gavin Cooper and Mark Bryan spoke in support of the application.

Having there been no proposer to grant the application in line with the officer’s recommendation, it was proposed by Councillor C Wyatt-Lowe and seconded by Councillor Mills to overturn the officer’s recommendation and refuse the application.

Vote

For: 8               Against: 0                    Abstained: 2

Resolved:

That planning permission be REFUSED due to the following reasons:

  1.  The proposed development, by reason of its layout, site coverage, mass, scale and bulk is considered to be of an urban scale which would not respect adjoining properties and would fail to integrate with the streetscape and cause harm to the character appearance of the area. As such the proposed development would be contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2012) and Policies CS11 and CS12 of the Core Strategy (2013).
  2. S66(1) of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 (LBA) requires that special regard shall be had to the desirability of preserving a listed building or its setting or any features of special architectural or historic interest that it possesses. S72 (1) of the LBA requires special attention to be paid to the desirability of preserving or enhancing the character or appearance of the conservation area. The proposal would result in harm to the visible open space which characterises the setting of the adjacent Grade II Listed Buildings and conservation area. It is considered that the although the harm identified would be less than substantial harm to the setting of the Grade II Listed Buildings and conservation area there would be a failure to preserve its character and setting. Considerable importance and weight is attributed to this harm. The public benefits of the proposal have been identified and considered. These public benefits, although together they would be significant, do not provide sufficient justification to override the presumption in favour of preservation. As such, the less than substantial harm identified to the setting of Listed Buildings and conservation area would be irreversible and affect this and future generations ability to appreciate the significance of these heritage assets. The development would therefore be contrary to the requirement of section 66 (1) of the LBA, Paras 132 and 134 of NPPF, Policy CS27 of the Core Strategy and Saved Policy 97 of the Local Plan (2004).

Reason:  To ensure a satisfactory appearance to the development.

 

 

4

The development permitted by this planning permission shall be carried out in accordance with the approved The Drainage and SuDS Strategy carried out by Price & Myers reference 26156 Rev 2 dated August 2017 and supporting information submitted and the following mitigation measures detailed within the FRA:

 

·        Implement appropriate drainage strategy based on attenuation and discharge into Thames Surface water sewer.

·        Limiting the surface water run-off to a maximum of 3l/s generated by the 1 in 100 year + climate change critical storm so that it will not exceed the run-off from the undeveloped site and not increase the risk of flooding off-site.

·        Implement drainage strategy utilising permeable paving and attenuation tank.

 

Reason: To reduce the risk of flooding to the proposed development and future occupants.

 

5

No development shall take place until the final design of the drainage scheme is completed and sent to the LPA for approval. The scheme shall also include:

 

·        Detailed engineered drawings of the proposed SuDS features including their location, size, volume, depth and any inlet and outlet features including any connecting pipe runs and all corresponding calculation.

·        Final design should incorporate silt traps and appropriate pollution prevention methods to ensure surface water run-off from the proposed car parking and roads can be treated in a sustainable manner and reduce the requirement for maintenance of underground features.

·        Detailed surface water calculations for all rainfall events up to and including the 1 in 100 year + climate change event supported by a clearly labelled drainage layout plan showing pipe networks. This plan should show any pipe 'node numbers' that have  ...  view the full minutes text for item 130.

Resolved:

That planning permission be GRANTED subject to the following conditions:

 

1

The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.

 

Reason:  To comply with the requirements of Section 91 (1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as amended by Section 51 (1) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

 

2

The development hereby permitted shall be constructed in accordance with the materials specified on the approved drawings.

 

Reason:  To ensure a satisfactory appearance to the development in accordance with Policy Cs12 of the Core Strategy.

 

 

3

All burials in the cemetery shall be:

a minimum of 50 m from a potable groundwater supply source;

a minimum of 30 m from a water course or spring;

a minimum of 10 m distance from field drains; and

not in standing water and the base of the grave must be above the local water table.

 

Reasons To protect the quality of groundwater in the local area. Groundwater is particularly sensitive in this location because the proposed development site is within Source Protection Zone 3, meaning it is used for drinking water supplies, and is located upon a Principal Aquifer. In addition, the Thames River Basin Management Plan requires the restoration and enhancement of water bodies to prevent deterioration and promote recovery; without this condition, the proposal could cause deterioration of a drinking water protected area located within the Mid-Chilterns Chalk groundwater body.

This is in line with your Local Plan policy CS31 to avoid damage to Groundwater Source Protection Zones, and also paragraph 109 of the National Planning Policy Framework to prevent unacceptable risks to groundwater resources.

 

Advice on Condition 1

The developer should conduct a protected rights survey to ensure that no licensed or unlicensed groundwater abstraction (to include abstractions from springs, wells and boreholes) in the adjacent areas will be derogated in either quality or quantity as a result of this development. The Environment Agency does not keep records of where private water supplies are located. These details are held by local authorities and the Drinking Water Inspectorate.

 

 

 

4

If, during development, contamination not previously identified is found to be present at the site then no further development (unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Local Planning Authority) shall be carried out until a remediation strategy detailing how this contamination will be dealt with has been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The remediation strategy shall be implemented as approved.

 

Reasons; To protect the quality of groundwater in the local area as no investigation can completely characterise a site. Groundwater is particularly sensitive in this location because the proposed development  ...  view the full minutes text for item 131.

The development hereby permitted shall not be occupied until the arrangements for vehicle parking, access and circulation, shown on Drawing No. WNS-AHR-S1-00-DR-A-05-002 shall have been provided, and they shall not be used thereafter otherwise than for the purposes approved.

 

Reason:  To ensure the adequate and satisfactory provision of off-street vehicle parking facilities.

 

4

Prior to the commencement of the development hereby permitted a Phase I Report to assess the actual or potential contamination at the site shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority. If actual or potential contamination and/or ground gas risks are identified further investigation shall be carried out and a Phase II report shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority prior to the commencement of the development. If the Phase II report establishes that remediation or protection measures are necessary a Remediation Statement shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

For the purposes of this condition:

 

A Phase I Report consists of a desk study, site walkover, conceptual model and a preliminary risk assessment. The desk study comprises a search of             available information and historical maps which can be used to identify the likelihood of contamination. A simple walkover survey of the site is conducted to identify pollution linkages not obvious from desk studies. Using the       information gathered, a 'conceptual model' of the site is constructed and a   preliminary risk assessment is carried out.

 

A Phase II Report consists of an intrusive site investigation and risk assessment. The report should make recommendations for further investigation and assessment where required.

           

A Remediation Statement details actions to be carried out and timescales so that contamination no longer presents a risk to site users, property, the environment or ecological  ...  view the full minutes text for item 132.
