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 and detailed in the application forms shall be used in the external walls and roofs of the development hereby permitted.
Reason - To ensure that the development is visually satisfactory.
The greenhouse foundations and farm shop building, all shown on the proposed block plan received 24 March 2014 shall be demolished and removed from the application site in their entirety prior to the occupation of the residential unit hereby approved for conversion.
Reason: To improve the visual amenities of the area and enhance the immediate setting of the property and surroundings.
No part of the development shall be commenced until there has been submitted to, and approved in writing by, the Local Planning Authority a scheme outlining landscaped boundary treatment. The scheme shall include details of boundary treatment to the northern and western boundary of the site and will specify any fencing, walls or hedge/shrub planting of native species. Details of proposed species, plant sizes, planting densities and protective fencing (where appropriate) during establishment will be provided.
All planting comprised in the approved details shall be carried out in the first planting season following the completion or first occupation/use of the development, whichever is the sooner.
All planting shall be watered as necessary and competitive weed growth controlled to ensure successful establishment.
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 Policy GD2, Policy ENV1 and Policy SUR2 of the Wychavon District Local Plan (June 2006).
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.
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 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, 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 offsite receptors.
The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the following approved plans:
Proposed Block Plan, Proposed Location Plan, Proposed Cattery Building, Proposed Cattery Floor Plan, Existing Farm Shop plan to be demolished, Existing Cattery Floor Plan, Proposed Residential Conversion elevations (S and E), Proposed Residential Conversion Elevations (N and W), Proposed Residential Conversion Floor Plan.
