This decision is subject to the following conditions:
The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.
Reason - In accordance with the requirements of Section 91 (1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as amended by Section 51 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.
The materials shown on the approved plan shall be used and no others substituted without the approval, in writing, of the Local Planning Authority before work on the site commences.
Reason - To ensure that the development is visually satisfactory.
Surface water run-off from the proposed development shall be disposed of as described in the submitted Water Management Statement unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
Reason - To ensure that surface water run-off is dealt with in an appropriate and sustainable manner.
Unless otherwise agreed by the Local Planning Authority development, other than that required to be carried out as part of an approved scheme of remediation, must not commence until Parts 1 to 6 have been complied with:
Part 1. A preliminary risk assessment must be carried out. This study shall take the form of a Phase I desk study and site walkover and shall include the identification of previous site uses, potential contaminants that might reasonably be expected given those uses and any other relevant information. The preliminary risk assessment report shall contain a diagrammatical representation (conceptual model) based on the information above and shall include all potential contaminants, sources and receptors to determine whether a site investigation is required and this should be detailed in a report supplied to the Local Planning Authority. The risk assessment must be approved in writing before any development takes place.
Part 2. Where an unacceptable risk is identified a scheme for detailed site investigation must be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority prior to being undertaken. The scheme must be designed to assess the nature and extent of any contamination and must be led by the findings of the preliminary risk assessment. The investigation and risk assessment scheme must be compiled by competent persons and must be designed in accordance with DEFRA and the Environment Agency's 'Model Procedures for the Management of Contaminated Land, CLR11'
Part 3. Detailed site investigation and risk assessment must be undertaken and a written report of the findings produced. This report must be approved by the Local Planning Authority prior to any development taking place. The investigation and risk assessment must be undertaken by competent persons and must be conducted in accordance with DEFRA and the Environment Agency's 'Model Procedures for the Management of Contaminated Land, CLR11'.
Part 4. Where identified as necessary, a detailed remediation scheme to bring the site to a condition suitable for the intended use by removing unacceptable risks to identified receptors must be prepared and is subject to the approval of the Local Planning Authority in advance of undertaking. The remediation scheme must ensure that the site will not qualify as Contaminated Land under Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 in relation to the intended use of the land after remediation.
Part 5. The approved remediation scheme must be carried out in accordance with its terms prior to the commencement of development, other than that required to carry out remediation, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
Part 6. Following the completion of the measures identified in the approved remediation scheme, a validation report that demonstrates the effectiveness of the remediation carried out must be produced, and is subject to the approval of the Local Planning Authority prior to the occupation of any buildings.
Part 7. In the event that contamination is found at any time when carrying out the approved development that was not previously identified it must be reported in writing immediately to the Local Planning Authority. An investigation and risk assessment must be undertaken and where necessary a remediation scheme must be prepared and these will be subject to the approval of the Local Planning Authority. Following the completion of any measures identified in the approved remediation scheme, a validation report must be prepared, which is subject to the approval in writing of the Local Planning Authority prior to the occupation of any buildings.
Reason - To ensure that risks from land contamination to the future users of the land and neighbouring land are minimised, together with those to controlled waters, property and ecological systems, and to ensure that the development can be carried out safely without unacceptable risks to workers, neighbours and other off-site receptors .
Before the development hereby approved is first occupied, a bat roosting feature shall be provided on the site and thereafter maintained in accordance with details which shall have first been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
Reason - To make appropriate habitat provision for protected species in accordance with paragraph 118 of the National Planning Policy Framework.
Prior to any building works being first commenced, details of the location, height and the precise specification of the proposed materials, or species of planting, for the boundary treatments on the site shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
Reason - To ensure that the development is visually satisfactory.
The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the following approved plans:
1:1250 Location Plan; 1:500 Block Plan; EST12/044; EST13/01C; EST13/02C; EST13/03C
