*The Committee considered the under-mentioned applications in light of reports by the Development Management and Conservation Manager and resolved as follows:-

 

CHE/18/00532/OUT - OUTLINE APPLICATION FOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT (OF UP TO 150 DWELLINGS) AND ASSOCIATED ACCESS WORKS - RE-SUBMISSION OF CHE/16/00614/OUT (ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REC’D INC. 12/09/2018 5YR HLS ADDENDUM, 11/01/2019 AIR QUALITY INFORMATION, 11/01/2019 GROUND NESTING BIRDS MITIGATION STRATEGY AND 15/01/2019 ARCHAEOLOGICAL EVALUATION REPORT; AND EMAILS / LETTERS FROM AGENT 07/11/2018, 04/12/2018 AND 05/12/2018)

ON LAND TO THE NORTH WEST OF NORTHMOOR VIEW, BRIMINGTON, CHESTERFIELD, DERBYSHIRE FOR FG SISSONS (CHESTERFIELD) LTD

 

In accordance with Minute No. 299 (2001/2002) Mrs Pam Wright (objector), Mr Kevin Pratt (objector), Councillor Andy Bellamy (ward member), Councillor Tricia Gilby (ward member) and Mr Roland Bolton (agent for the applicant) addressed the meeting. As agreed prior to the meeting, the four parties speaking against, and the one party in support, of the application had the same total amount of time to address the meeting (12 minutes).

 

That the officer recommendation be upheld and the application be refused for the following reasons:-

 

Principle of Development

 

1.  The site the subject of the application is on land allocated under policy EVR2 of the 2006 Local Plan (a saved designation of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031) as open countryside and land located under policy CS1 as a Strategic Gap between Brimington and Tapton. Policy CS10 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031 states that greenfield led housing development will not be accepted where the Local Planning Authority is able to demonstrate a 5 year housing land supply. 

 

On the basis that the Local Planning Authority is currently able to demonstrate a 5 year housing land supply the development would be contrary to the provisions of policy CS10 and EVR2 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031, the wider provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework and it is therefore unacceptable. 

 

Strategic Gap

 

2.  The development proposals would introduce an extension to the built settlement of Brimington which would encroach into land which is Open Countryside and has been identified to form part of the Strategic Gap between Tapton and Brimington under the provisions of policies CS1, CS2 and CS9 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031 and the wider National Planning Policy Framework. The development proposals are considered to be contrary to the provisions of these policies which seek to maintain open land between neighboring settlements to prevent merging (perceptual and physical) and protect the setting and separate identity of settlements; support appreciation and wider perceptual benefits of open countryside; and maintain existing or influence form and direction of settlements and for this reason they are unacceptable. 

 

Air Quality

 

3.  Overall it is considered that the development proposals fail to adequately address the provisions of Policy CS8 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031 in so far as they do not incorporate measures to avoid or mitigate increases in air pollution where  ...  view the full minutes text for item 97.
