11/P/0670/F – 9 Alburys - Approved.

7 Planning Applications

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

Application - 11/P/0943/RM – Bristol Airport, North Side Road, A38 Bristol Road, Wrington, BS48 3DY

After discussing the application details, the Council agreed that Cllr Glynn would draft a response to be circulated to Members. This would include seeking clarification on:-

· The proposed number of stands (9 being stated in the documents but 6 being shown on the plans).
· The hours of use of the ground units.
· Surface water drainage, storm water controls where the soakaway outflow drains to.

It was also agreed to comment on:-

· The fence - whether its height is sufficient and if it could be landscaped to reduce its visual impact. The fact that the fence as shown appears to be a standard close boarded fence without any obviously specific ‘acoustic’ properties.

· Noise – what would happen in the event that the ground connection power system fails; what back-up will be provided and what measures will be introduced to control the use of aircraft on board auxiliary power units? What controls will be implemented to minimise the nuisance created by the “beeping” of reversing vehicles?

· The scale of the proposed earthworks.
· Tree felling, ecological issues and landscaping.
· Lighting and resulting impacts.
· Neighbour impacts generally.

Application - 11/P/0954/WT – The Old Rectory, Broad St, Wrington, BS40 5LD
It was agreed the council has no comment to make on this tree works application.
