    Reason - In order to maintain the buildings' character and form, which justified the dwelling in an area of countryside where new dwellings are not normally acceptable.

  13. This permission relates only to the conversion of the building(s) and does not permit any rebuilding or major repair other than as set out in the approved plans and the details of the application.

    Reason - In order to define the permission, which has only been granted for the conversion of the building and does not authorise new building work.

  14. The garages shown on the approved plans shall be kept available for ancillary domestic storage use and shall not be converted into habitable accommodation.

    Reason - In order to ensure that garage accommodation remain available for the residential use and so as to restrict pressure for additional or alternative garaging in new buildings, which may spoil the character and setting of the barn.

  15. Demolition, clearance or construction work and deliveries to and from the site in connection with the development hereby approved shall only take place between the hours of 08.00 and 18.00hrs Monday to Friday and 08.00 and 13.00hrs on a Saturday. There shall be no demolition, clearance or construction work or deliveries to and from the site on Sundays or Bank Holidays.

    Reason - To preserve the amenities of the locality.

  16. No development shall take place until full details of both hard and soft landscape works have been submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority. These details shall include:

    1. earthworks (including the grading and mounding of land and the finished site levels or contours, showing relationship to existing and proposed vegetation and to surrounding land form);

    2. means of enclosure within the development site;

    3. treatment of the development site boundaries (including position, design, materials and type of boundary treatment);

    4. planting plans, including tree, hedge, shrub and grassed area planting and a written specification (including cultivation and other operations associated with plant and grass establishment);

    6. retained historic landscape features including hedges and water features and proposals for restoration, where relevant;

    7. a programme of implementation;

    8. a schedule of maintenance for a period of five years commencing at the completion of the final phase of implementation, the schedule to make provision for the replacement, in the same position, of any plant that is removed, uprooted or destroyed or dies or, in the opinion of the Local Planning Authority, becomes seriously damaged or defective, with another of the same species and size as that originally planted.

    The works shall be carried out in accordance with the approved details, the programme of implementation and the schedule of maintenance.

    Reason - The Council considers that these requirements are necessary to protect and enhance the visual amenities of the area and to discharge its duty under S197 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

  17. Before any other works hereby approved are commenced, visibility splays shall be provided from a point 0.6 metres above ground level at the centre of the access to the application site and 2 metres back from the nearside edge of the adjoining carriageway, (measured perpendicularly), for a distance of 90 metres in each direction along the nearside edge of the adjoining carriageway. Nothing shall be planted, erected and/or allowed to grow on the triangular area of land so formed which would obstruct the visibility described above.

    Reason - In the interests of highway safety.

    Reason - To ensure the safe and free flow of traffic using the adjoining highway.

  19. The change of use hereby permitted shall not commence until an area has been laid out, consolidated, surfaced and drained within the application site for the parking of 3 cars, and for vehicles to turn so that they may enter and leave the site in a forward gear. This area shall thereafter be retained and kept available for those uses at all times.

    Reason - To minimise the likelihood of indiscriminate parking in the interests of highway safety.

  20. Before any other works on the development hereby approved are commenced, visibility at the Parsons Lane/B4193 junction shall be improved as indicated on the amended plan, drawing no. 03/17/D/04A, submitted on 11th December 2003.

    Reason - To ensure the safe and free flow of traffic using the adjoining highway.

  21. Development shall not begin until parking for site operatives and visitors has been provided within the application site in accordance with details to be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority and such provision shall be retained and kept available during construction of the development.
