          DEVELOPMENT CONTROL COMMITTEE – 11 JANUARY 2006


                      Report of the Head of Planning and Transport

The following applications for permission to develop and items relating to other matters were
dealt with in the manner indicated:-


BDB 61066 Mr & Mrs J Marsden & Mrs D Blakeway
Outline application for residential development with means of access, siting and
landscaping for consideration, following demolition of existing house, garage and
bungalow at Clere House and Little Oxleas, Woolton Hill. (East Woodhay Ward)
RESOLVED
That planning permission be REFUSED for the following reasons:-

(1)   The area is characterised by low density development and is verdant in character. The
      proposed development would by virtue of its urban form, layout and density represent
      an overdevelopment of the site and would have an unacceptable impact upon the
      streetscene and the character with the area. As such the proposal would be contrary to
      Policies UB3 and E6 of the Hampshire County Structure Plan 1996-2011 ( Review),
      Policies GS1, C100, H7.1, LD1, LD3, CD100 and CD103 of the Basingstoke and Deane
      Borough Local Plan and Policies E1 and E7 of the Basingstoke and Deane Revised
      Deposit Draft Local Plan 1996 -2016.

(2)   The proposed access would by virtue of its location, width and form result in the loss of
      protected trees and vegetation and appear incongruous within the streetscene. As such
      the proposal would be contrary to Policy UB3 of the Hampshire County Structure Plan
      1996-2011 (Review), Policies GS1, LD1, LD3, CD100 and CD103 of the Basingstoke
      and Deane Borough Local Plan and Policies E1 and E7 of the Basingstoke and Deane
      Revised Deposit Draft Local Plan 1996 -2016.

(3)   The proposed development would by virtue of the loss of trees and vegetation, layout,
      spacing between dwellings, location and the amount of built form would be visually
      intrusive and detrimental to the character and appearance of the North Wessex Downs
      Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As such the proposal would be contrary to
      Policies UB3 and E6 of the Hampshire County Structure Plan 1996-2011 (Review),
      Policies GS1, C100, LD1 and LD3 of the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Local Plan
      and Policies E1 and E7 of the Basingstoke and Deane Revised Deposit Draft Local Plan
      1996 -2016.

(4)   The proposed development is unsatisfactory and contrary to the Policies R2 and IMP1
      of the Hampshire County Structure Plan, Policies ORT100 and IMP1 of the adopted
      Basingstoke and Deane Borough Local Plan, Policies C1, C2 and C4 of the Pre-Inquiry
      Changes to the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Local Plan (Review) 1996 - 2016 in the
      absence of any suitable agreements, it does not safeguard the provision and/or
      maintenance of areas of open space, play areas/recreation, affordable housing,
      community facilities, housing mix and travel and transport infrastructure.


                                              70
1.    The applicant is advised and encouraged to involve the public and parish council at the
      pre application stage of any future planning application.

2.    The applicant is advised that any future application should be submitted as a full
      application given the existence of protected trees on the site and the sites location within
      the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.



BDB 62108 Cadenza Estates Ltd
Full application for erection of 162 residential dwellings with open space, parking and
principal access off Grove Road at Skippetts House, Skippetts Lane West, Basingstoke.
(Grove Ward)
RESOLVED
That planning permission be REFUSED for the following reasons:-

(1)   The proposed development is considered unacceptable due to the inappropriate building
      form, height, layout and design which is considered to be out of keeping with the
      prevailing pattern of development, and as such is considered contrary to the Policy UB3
      of the Hampshire County Structure Plan 1996-2011 (Review), Policies GS1(iii) and
      CD103 of the adopted Basingstoke and Deane Borough Local Plan and Policy E1(i) of
      the Basingstoke and Deane Revised Deposit Draft Local Plan Review – November
      2003, and the Borough Council’s Places to Live – Supplementary Planning Guidance.

(2)   The proposed development is unsatisfactory due to the reduction in highway safety that
      would result in the traffic generated by the development exiting onto Grove Road in a
      northeasterly direction, and as such the development would be contrary to Policy UB3
      of the Hampshire County Structure Plan 1996-2011 (Review), Policies GS1(ii) and T3.1
      of the adopted Basingstoke and Deane Borough Local Plan , and Policy E1(iii) of the
      Basingstoke and Deane Revised Deposit Draft Local Plan Review – November 2003.

(3)   The proposed development is considered unacceptable due to the reduced parking
      provision which would result in the likely overspill of parking onto the surrounding
      road network, such as Skippetts Lane East and Skippetts Lane West, which due to their
      reduced carriage width and limited lighting are quiet and semi-rural in character. The
      overspill parking would result in a reduction in highway safety and would adversely
      affect the character of the area and as such would be contrary to Policies UB1(vii) and
      T2 of the Hampshire County Structure Plan 1996-2011 (Review), Policies GS1(viii) and
      T5.5 of the adopted Basingstoke and Deane Borough Local Plan and Policy E1(iii) and
      A1 of the Basingstoke and Deane Revised Deposit Draft Local Plan Review –
      November 2003.

(4)   The proposed development is unsatisfactory and contrary to the Policies R2 and IMP1
      of the Hampshire County Structure Plan, Policies ORT100 and IMP1 of the adopted
      Basingstoke and Deane Borough Local Plan, Policies C1 of the Pre-Inquiry Changes
      to the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Local Plan (Review) 1996 - 2016 in the
      absence of any suitable agreements, it does not safeguard the provision and/or
      maintenance of areas of public open space and play, recreation facilities, community
      facilities, affordable housing Per Cent for Art, and the management and/or
      maintenance of the existing woodlands and proposed landscaping.


                                               71
(5)   The proposed development is unsatisfactory and contrary to Policy T5 of the Hampshire
      County Structure Plan, Policy T3.1 of the adopted Basingstoke and Deane Borough
      Local Plan, Policy A3 of the Basingstoke and Deane Revised Deposit Draft Local Plan
      Review – November 2003, that in the absence of any suitable agreement the roads
      leading to and from the site are of inadequate capacity, width and alignment to safely
      accommodate the additional traffic which the proposed development would generate.

(6)   The proposed development cannot be reconciled with national planning policy guidance
      in PPG 13 in that it would result in development that would be inappropriately located
      away from existing urban areas and in an area poorly served by public transport. It
      would thus over-rely on the private car for access and transport purposes. This would
      result in an unacceptable increase in the number and length of care journeys, where
      alternative means of travel would otherwise have had less environmental impact, to the
      detriment of the environment and the locality. In the absence of any suitable agreement
      which would make adequate provision for sustainable methods of transport to/from the
      site the proposal is therefore contrary to Policies T1 to T5 of the Hampshire County
      Structure Plan 1996-2011(Review), Policies T3.1 and T5.5 of the Basingstoke and
      Deane Revised Deposit Draft Local Plan Review – November 2003, and Policies C1
      and A2 of the Basingstoke and Deane Revised Deposit Draft Local Plan Review –
      November 2003.
