Minutes:

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

 

CHE/19/00251/OUT - OUTLINE APPLICATION FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF UP TO 120 DWELLINGS WITH ALL MATTERS RESERVED EXCEPT FOR POINT OF ACCESS.  REVISED DRAWINGS AND NOISE ASSESSMENT REPORT RECEIVED 29 JULY 2019.  REVISED MASTERPLAN RECEIVED 5 SEPTEMBER 2019 AND EXTRA INFORMATION RE BERM VIEW ON LAND SOUTH OF CALOW LANE, HASLAND, DERBYSHIRE

 

In accordance with Minute No. 299 (2001/2002) Steve Jones (applicant) addressed the meeting.

 

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

 

1.  Having regard to the requirements of policy CS1 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031 the site is not located within an acceptable walking distance to local services, including primary education provision, and a local centre via a safe, convenient route and therefore the development fails to meet the provisions set out in the CS1 Spatial Strategy to ‘concentrate new development within walking and cycling distances of centres’ and is not considered Sustainable Development.  Furthermore the development proposals fails on the majority of the criteria set out in policy CS2 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031 (the exceptions being (c) and (g)), and there is no evidence to suggest that the proposal meets the exception tests set out in CS2 (i) and (ii).

 

In respect of policy CS10 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031 the policy requirement is clear in its aim that greenfield led housing development will not be accepted where the Local Planning Authority is able to demonstrate a 5 year housing land supply. 

 

Overall 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 CS1, CS2 and CS10 of the Chesterfield Local Plan: Core Strategy 2011 – 2031 and the wider provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework and it is therefore unacceptable.

 

2.  Having regard to paragraph 50 of the NPPF, the proposed development, would undermine the plan-making process by predetermining decisions about the scale, location or phasing of the emerging Chesterfield Local Plan (2018-2035) by enabling substantial development of a scale and location not supported by the emerging strategy when taken cumulatively with other development proposals.

 

3.  The site falls within the open countryside and will be prominent from various view-points particularly the Calow Lane bridge over the A617 and the elevated public footpath to the east.

 

Whilst the proposed noise bund would not be prominent from the A617, it would appear as an alien intrusion in to the countryside from other views and together with the landscape impact of the development, this would constitute an intrusion in to the countryside contrary to Core Strategy Policies CS9(e) CS18 and the N.P.P.F.
