Matters arising:

5 NSC South Area Planning Committee

No papers had been received since the previous Committee meeting.

6 Decision Notices issued by NSC

A list of decision notices had been circulated prior to the Meeting.

With regard to 10/P/1806/F (Meadow Cottage, Lye Hole Lane, Redhill, Wrington), it was noted that the approval included conditions stating that there should be no more than seven bedrooms used as B&B accommodation and that on site parking should solely be for residential use and for those in occupation at the B&B.

In relation to the Appeal APP/C0131/A/2135375 (St Katherine’s Farm, Downside Road, Backwell) it was noted that the Appeal had been dismissed because it would be inappropriate in the Green Belt (possibly harming the environment) and, although in a sustainable location with potential economic benefits, it had not been adequately demonstrated that a more suitable location could not be found.

7 Planning Applications

A list of planning applications had been circulated prior to the Meeting.

Application - 10/P/2142/F - The Cowsheds, The Triangle, Wrington, BS40 5LB

It was agreed that the Council had no objection to the principle of development provided that an independent right of access is conditioned and that adequate parking should be allowed for both the proposed dwelling and Court Barn. In addition, approval should only be granted if the development fully meets policy H/7, which requires physically separate kitchen, toilet and other facilities within the office unit. Also, the office unit should be formally tied to occupation of the dwelling.

Application - 10/P/2154/F - Box Bush Farm, Lye Cross Road, Wrington, BS40 5RH

It was agreed that the Council had no objection to the principle of development but should highlight the issue of flood risk. It was noted that no technical reports had been submitted and, given the known flooding issues in the area, the Council would recommend that the issue is investigated further and that any hard surfacing is made permeable to minimize flood risk from this development and site. Furthermore, any landscaping conditioned in the previous application should be implemented as soon as possible and preferably extended.

Application - 10/P/2188/WT - Wrington Farm House, School Road, Wrington, BS40 5NA

The site and nature of the tree were discussed and it was agreed that the Council had no comment to make on this application.

Application - 10/P/2191/F - Dingley Dell, Pigeon Lane, Redhill, BS40 5RU

It was agreed that the Council had no comment on this application.

Application - 10/P/2199/F - 37 Garstons, Wrington, BS40 5QW

It was agreed the Council would comment that members had concerns about the scale of the extension and the potential impact on the street scene as the proposed development is out of keeping with neighbouring properties. Furthermore, it appears to be too close to the boundary and, therefore, does not allow for any landscaping. The Council would like to recommend that it is distanced away from the boundary to allow for planting to maintain the character of the location.

Application - 10/P/2225/F - Bristol Airport Ltd, North Side Road, Felton, Winford, BS48 3DY

It was agreed that the Council had no comment to make on this application.

8 Other Planning Issues

There were no other Issues.

The Meeting was closed at 7.15pm.
