To consider application UTT/19/1789/FUL.
The Senior Planning Officer said that the application was for residential development comprising 14 dwellings (use class C3), vehicular access, public open space, sustainable drainage systems and all other associated hard/soft landscaping and infrastructure.
The development would include 4 detached dwellings (one of which would be affordable), 8 semi-detached dwellings and 2 horizontally divided flats in a detached dwelling (both of which would be affordable).
A landscaped area would be laid out around the proposed attenuation basin
at the western end of the development which would also serve as a public open
space feature whereby the provision of open space and its management would
form part of any S106 agreement.
There would be residential parking for each dwelling except for the ground
floor flat for Plot 13 which had been amended to be a 2 bedroomed accessible flat rather than the 1 bedroomed flat that was originally proposed. There would be 9 visitor parking spaces.
The application was recommended for approval with conditions with S106 Agreement.
In response to Members’ questions, Officers clarified the following:-
Councillor Coote said that more open space should be looked at with future developments as the residents were likely to be families with children.
Councillor Lemon proposed that the application be approved with conditions with S106 Agreement.
The Chair seconded the motion.
RESOLVED to approve the application with conditions with S106 Agreement.
J Bean (agent) spoke in favour of the application.
