Prior to any building works being first commenced, a precise specification of the proposed brick to be used, a sample of at least four bricks to provide a representative range of the colour and texture of the brick, together with a specification of the proposed mortar mix, pointing profile and finish, jointing width and bond of the brickwork, shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. For the avoidance of doubt, a sample panel of the brickwork using the bond, mortar, jointing and pointing proposed, shall be provided and retained on site during building works as a reference. Details of the methods of spanning structural openings, band, string or dentil courses, parapets and copings, cills, and corbelling to chimney cappings shall be approved in the same manner. The house shall be constructed in accordance with the approved details and retained in that form.

The house shall be constructed in the tiles so approved and retained in that form.
Reason - To ensure the historic and architectural character and appearance of the conservation area is properly preserved or enhanced, in accordance with Policy ENV12 of the adopted Wychavon District Local Plan (June 2006).
Surface water run-off from the proposed development shall be disposed of as described in the submitted Water Management Statement.
Reason - To ensure that surface water run-off is dealt with in an appropriate and sustainable manner.
All existing trees and hedges on site, or branches from trees on adjacent land that overhang the site, unless indicated on the approved plan(s) to be removed, shall be retained and shall not be felled or pruned or otherwise removed within a period of five years from the completion of the development without the previous written consent of the Local Planning Authority.
Temporary fencing for the protection of all retained trees/hedges on site during development shall be erected, to a minimum height of 1.2 metres, below the outermost limit of the branch spread, or at a distance equal to half the height of the tree, whichever is the further from the tree.
Such fencing should be erected in accordance with BS 5837:2005, before any materials or machinery are brought onto site and before any demolition or development, including erection of site huts, is commenced.
This protective fencing shall be maintained on site until the completion of development, and nothing should be stored or placed, nor shall any ground levels be altered, within the fenced area without the previous written consent of the Local Planning Authority.
There shall be no burning of any material within 10 metres of the extent of the canopy of any retained tree/hedge.
If any retained tree/hedge is removed, uprooted or destroyed or dies, replacement planting shall be carried out in the first available planting season of such species, sizes and numbers and in positions on site as may be specified by the Local Planning Authority.
Reason - To prevent existing trees/hedges from being damaged during construction work and to preserve the amenities of the locality in accordance with Policies SUR2, ENV7 and ENV8 of the Wychavon District Local Plan (June 2006).
The dwelling hereby permitted shall not be occupied until the vehicular access and entrance, turning area and parking facilities shown on the approved plan have been properly consolidated, surfaced, drained and otherwise constructed in accordance with details to be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority and these areas shall thereafter be retained and kept available for those uses at all times.
Reason - In the interests of highway safety.

a) The parking of vehicles of site operatives and visitors within the application site. b) Loading and unloading of plant and materials within the application site. c) Storage of plant and materials within the application site. d) Siting of site offices within the application site.
Reason - To prevent indiscriminate parking in the interests of highway safety.
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.
The foul drainage arrangements to serve the site shall be in accordance with details received on 14 February 2014 (as shown on revised drawing 781.11).
Reason - To ensure that the site is served by an acceptable means of foul drainage disposal in line with government guidance contained in national planning practice guidance - water supply, wastewater and water quality.
No part of the development shall be commenced until full details of soft landscaping works have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The details submitted must include:
i) a plan(s) showing details of all existing trees and hedges on the application site. The plan should include, for each tree/hedge, the accurate position, canopy spread and species, together with an indication of any proposals for felling/pruning and any proposed changes in ground level, or other works to be carried out, within the canopy spread. ii) a plan(s) showing the layout of proposed tree, hedge and shrub planting and grass areas. iii) a schedule of proposed planting - indicating species, sizes at time of planting and numbers/densities of plants. iv) a written specification outlining cultivation and other operations associated with plant and grass establishment. v) a schedule of maintenance, including watering and the control of competitive weed growth, for a minimum period of five years from first planting.
All planting and seeding/turfing shall be carried out in accordance with the approved details in the first planting and seeding/turfing seasons following the completion or first occupation/use of the development, whichever is the sooner.
Any trees or plants which, within a period of five years from the completion of the planting, die, are removed or become seriously damaged or diseased shall be replaced in the next planting season with others of similar size and species, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
Reason - To protect and enhance the visual amenities of the area and to ensure the satisfactory development of the site - in accordance with Policies GD2, ENV1 and ENV8 of the Wychavon District Local Plan (June 2006).
