Decision: Approved - Planning application

This decision is subject to the following conditions:

  1. 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.

  2. Development shall not begin until details of the proposed drainage works, both surface and foul, have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The drainage works shall be carried out in accordance with the details approved prior to the occupation of the dwellings.

    Reason - To ensure that the development is provided with a satisfactory means of drainage as well as to reduce the risk of creating or exacerbating a flooding problem and to minimise the risk of pollution, in accordance with saved Policies GD2 and ENV19 of the Wychavon District Local Plan (June 2006), as well as guidance contained in the adopted Water Management SPD. Insufficient information has been submitted with the application therefore the principle of the drainage schemes proposed needs to be assessed. It would be impractical and inappropriate to consider the acceptability of drainage systems once development had commenced.

  3. The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the following approved plans:

    Location Plan 1:1250 AO Topographical Survey Tree Survey Amended Proposed Site Plan 0628/001 (E) 0626_010(E) Amended Proposed Ground Floor Plans 0626_011(E) Amended Proposed First Floor Plans 0626_020(B) Amended Proposed Elevations 0626_021(A) Outbuilding Proposal

    Reason - To define the permission.

  4. The development hereby permitted shall not be brought into use until the access, 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 and to ensure the free flow of traffic using the adjoining highway.

  5. The development hereby permitted shall not be brought into use until the applicant has submitted to and have approved in writing a travel plan that promotes sustainable forms of access to the site with the Local Planning Authority. This plan thereafter will be implemented and updated in agreement with Worcestershire County Councils Travel plan co-ordinator.

    Reason: To reduce vehicle movements and promote sustainable access

  6. Samples of the external facing bricks, timber boarding and roof materials shall be subject to the approval, in writing, of the Local Planning Authority before any work on the site commences. The redevelopment shall be implemented in accordance with the approved details and shall be retained as such in perpetuity.

    Reason - To ensure that the development is visually satisfactory. These details are required prior to the commencement as it would be impractical or inappropriate to submit and/or approve these details following commencement of development.

  7. Details of the form, finish and materials of the windows and doors shall be agreed, in writing, by the Local Planning Authority before any work on the site commences. The development shall be carried out in accordance with the approved details and shall be retained as such in perpetuity.

    Reason - To ensure that the development is visually satisfactory. These details are required prior to the commencement as it would be impractical or inappropriate to submit and/or approve these details following commencement of development.

  8. Prior to any building works being first commenced, detailed drawings of the proposed rooflight(s) showing design, materials and profile shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority before fixing in place and shall be fitted so that it is flush with the outer plane of the roof slope.

    Reason - To ensure that the development is visually satisfactory. These details are required prior to the commencement as it would be impractical or inappropriate to submit and/or approve these details following commencement of development.

  9. Prior to the first occupation of the development a plan indicating the positions, design, materials and type of boundary treatment to be erected shall be submitted to and agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The boundary treatment shall be completed before the development hereby approved is first occupied or in accordance with a timetable agreed in writing with the Local Planning Authority. Development shall be carried out in accordance with the approved details.

    Reason - In order to ensure that there is an acceptable form of screening with adjacent properties and to preserve the visual amenities of the locality.

  10. Prior to the first use/occupation of the development hereby permitted, the details set out in the submitted Water Management Statement shall be fully implemented and remain thereafter. Reason - To ensure that an appropriate sustainable drainage system is provided to serve the development and to reduce the consumption of water. This is in accordance with the SPD on Water Management.

  11. Prior to the first occupation of the development full details of soft landscaping works shall be 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 and to provide ecological mitigation and enhancement in accordance with Policies GD2, ENV1, SUR2, ENV7 and ENV8 of the Wychavon District Local Plan (June 2006).

  12. 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).

  13. Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995, as amended, nothing in Article 3 and Schedule 2 to that order shall operate so as to permit any development specified in Part 1 Classes A to E inclusive and Class B Part A of the said schedule and no such development shall be carried out at any time without an express grant of planning permission under Part III of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

    Reason - In order to prevent the erection of extensions to the buildings so as to maintain their character and form which justified in part the development in an area of countryside where new dwellings are not normally acceptable.

  14. The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in strict accordance with the great crested newt method statement detailed in section 8 of the Great Crested Newt Survey report by Elizabeth Mckay, unless otherwise agreed in writing with the local planning authority. On completion of these works a brief confirmation letter shall be submitted to the local planning authority for approval.

    Reason: To ensure protected species are not harmed by the development and an offence under the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010 and the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended) is avoided.

  15. Prior to the commencement of the development hereby approved details of bat roosting and bird nesting features and details of lighting in relation to bat roosts and foraging habitat shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority, and shall thereafter be maintained as agreed.

    Reason - To provide appropriate habitat enhancement for protected species in accordance with paragraph 118 of the NPPF. These details are required prior to the commencement as it would be impractical or inappropriate to submit and/or approve these details following commencement of development.
