Report of the Leader of the Council
5

The Committee received report ES/0112 of the Leader of the Council. The report was to consider appointments to the membership of the Local Plan Working Group for the 2019/20 Municipal Year.

 

The report was introduced by the Democratic Services Officer, who explained that the Council  appointed to a number of Working Groups each year as part of its corporate governance framework in support of the democratic process and decision-making arrangements. At the meeting of Full Council held on 24 July 2019, the Council agreed and appointed to a number of working groups, including the Local Plan Working Group.

 

The Democratic Services Officer stated that at the Full Council meeting on 24 July 2019 it was suggested by the Leader of the Council that the two appointees to the Local Plan Group from the Planning Committee, as outlined in Working Group's terms of reference at Appendix A of the report, that these appointments be delegated to Planning Committee North and Planning Committee South. This approach was duly agreed by Council, with the expectation that each Committee would nominate one Member each to the Local Plan Working Group.

 

On the proposition of Councillor McCallum, seconded by Councillor Hedgley it was unanimously

 

RESOLVED

 

That Councillor Tony Cooper be appointed to the Local Plan Working Group for the remainder of the 2019/20 Municipal Year.

Report of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management
6

The Committee received report ES/0110 of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management.  The report provided information on the performance of the Council's Enforcement Section between April and June 2019.

 

The report was presented by the Development Management Team Leader, who summarised the performance information contained within the report.

 

RESOLVED

 

That the contents of the report be received and noted.

Report of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management
7

The Committee received report ES/0111 of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management.  The report was a summary of all outstanding enforcement cases for the Council where enforcement action had either been sanctioned under delegated powers or through the Committee up until 30 July 2019.

 

The report was presented by the Development Management Team Leader, who summarised the details of the outstanding enforcement cases contained within the report. 

 

The Chairman invited questions to the Officer.

 

It was confirmed that this update report would continue to be presented to the Committee and would not be transferred to the Strategic Planning Committee.

 

RESOLVED

 

That the contents of the report be received and noted.

 

At this point in the meeting, the Chairman re-ordered the agenda and advised that item 10 would be heard after item 8 and before item 9.

Report of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management
8

The Committee received report ES/0113 of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management.  Planning permission was sought for a revised scheme to an already approved fast response embedded power plant to be sited adjacent to an existing substation in the countryside between Hacheston and Parham.

 

The application site was no different in size and location to the previously consented scheme DC/17/3742/FUL.  The proposed changes related to the structures solely located within the proposed compound.

 

The Committee received a presentation on the application from the Area Planning and Enforcement Officer.  The site's location was outlined and aerial photographs of the site were displayed, along with an Ordnance Survey map showing the proposed change in levels.

 

Photographs that demonstrated various views in and out of the site were displayed, and the Committee was shown the proposed internal layout of the site.

 

The Area Planning and Enforcement Officer outlined the extant planning permission for the site.

 

The key issues were summarised as noise, landscape, and the impact on the nearby listed building.

 

There being no questions to the Officer, the Chairman invited Mr Goring, who objected to the application, to address the Committee.

 

Mr Goring said he was not against the principle of the facility but had expected a comprehensive noise survey to have been completed, in accordance with statutory requirements.  He highlighted his experience as a noise consultant and the reasons such a survey was required to see if noise would have a negative impact on residential amenity. 

 

It was the opinion of Mr Goring that the noise survey completed, the results of which were contained on page 13 of the report, was not of the standard required; it provided some information but he did not consider this sufficient and should have been declined by the officers. 

 

Mr Goring said that he was not asking the Committee to refuse the application, but to ensure that a comprehensive noise survey was carried out and protect local residents through conditions on noise.

 

The Chairman invited questions to Mr Goring.

 

Mr Goring confirmed that he had raised concerns about the noise survey that was completed for the extant planning permission on the site and noted that the new application included changes in equipment which would make noise more noticeable.

 

A member of the Committee asked for more information on the comparison between current noise levels at the site and what was there.  Mr Goring explained that previous noise reports established the current background noise levels and was concerned that the noise survey had not included accurate noise data for the equipment that was proposed to be installed.

 

Mr Goring considered that several residential dwellings could be affected by noise from the site, in addition to Parham Old Hall.  He stated that a higher fence would possibly mitigate noise pollution but said that accurate source levels were needed to be certain.

 

The Chairman invited Mr Revill, Chairman of Hacheston Parish Council, to address the Committee.

 

Mr Revill stated that Hacheston Parish Council objected to the application and had also objected to the previous application, where planning permission had been granted.  He advised that a number of local residents had contacted officers and Members with their concerns and hoped that the Committee appreciated the position of those residents.

 

It was Mr Revill's opinion that the electrical equipment proposed would create noise that was alien to the area.  He said that there had already been noise nuisance from an existing transformer on the site which had not been predicted and had resulted in additional cost from the applicant to resolve, having cause problems for one family in particular.

 

Mr Revill sought assurance that the development proposed would not cause industrial noise pollution and wanted to know what action, if any, would be taken if any planning permission on the site was breached.

 

It was noted by Mr Revill that local residents were concerned about the noise that would be generated by the site and said that they were dependent on the Committee to enforce any conditions over the life of the scheme.  He concluded by stating his concerns that the site, if built, would damage quality of life in the area.

 

The Chairman invited questions to Mr Revill.

 

Mr Revill was unable to say if the new layout would result in more noise than that in the extant planning permission, but noted that there was noise reduction in some areas and increases in others.

 

A member of the Committee asked Mr Revill if he accepted that the site owner needed to adhere to conditions of planning permission.  Mr Revill said that he did and acknowledged that it would be a breach of consent if noise was above levels conditioned.  He said he wanted assurances on what action would be taken by the Council if this happened.

 

At this point, the Chairman invited the Head of Planning and Coastal Management to address issues that had been raised.  He read from a statement received from the Head of the Environmental Protection Team on the application, highlighting five key points from the statement:

 

- It was predicted noise levels and background levels would be low in terms of annoyance

- Environmental Protection did not consider it sensible to impose conditions of -5dB or -10dB

- Compared with noise requirements for restful sleep, the levels in the noise survey conclusion did not represent a significant possibility of causing disturbance

- It was suggested that condition 10 of the recommendation, regarding noise not exceeding background levels, be strengthened to include measurement locations and other conditions to make this more easily verifiable and thus enforceable

- It was suggested that an additional condition be included stating that tonal noise was not to rise at any time

 

The Head of Planning and Coastal Management noted that it may be prudent for the Committee to resolve to delegate authority to approve the application to him, subject to the issues above being resolved.

 

The Chairman invited Mr Thomas, the applicant, to address the Committee.

 

Mr Thomas explained that the revised proposals for the site were proposed to change the detailed engineering of the facility and increase its ability.  It was the intention to expand the use of the site and support the deployment of new technology.

 

The proposed changes to what had already been approved would not be visible from outside the site.  Mr Thomas did not consider that these changes would affect local amenity any more than what had been approved on the site.  He said that noise concerns had been taken seriously and accepted the stringent noise conditions proposed.

 

Mr Thomas noted the canopy attenuators proposed to meet low noise requirements at nighttime; he said that this was a substantial design margin and had been included at a significant additional cost, which would also ensure the long-term use of the site.

 

The site was considered necessary by Mr Thomas, who highlighted the need to install more battery stations in order to move away from coal fired power.  He said that the amendments made incremental and sustainable improvements to the site.

 

The Chairman invited questions to Mr Thomas.

 

Mr Thomas confirmed that the batteries would take one to one and a half hours to discharge and it was expected this would happen at peak times.

 

The Chairman invited the Committee to debate the application that was before it.

 

The Vice-Chairman opened the debate and noted that noise concerns appeared to be the dominant issue and considered that they had been addressed sufficiently.

 

A member of the Committee sought clarification on the noise concerns, in relation to the extant planning permission on the site.  The Head of Planning and Coastal Management advised that if the Committee was of the view that the changes increased the impact of the site on the surrounding area, it was able to come to a different conclusion than the one made on the previous application.  He noted that the officer recommendation highlighted marginal changes to what was approved.

 

Several members of the Committee spoke on the noise concerns that had been highlighted. One member of the Committee noted that the report contained expert information which concluded that noise would not be a significant issue. Another member of the Committee differentiated between the power level of noise and how it was heard and did not see any reasons to refuse the application.

 

The Chairman highlighted that the applicant was spending considerably to mitigate noise impact and did not have an issue with the application. She suggested that the Committee resolve to delegate authority to approve to the Head of Planning and Coastal Management as suggested.

 

Two members of the Committee noted their concerns about noise levels but were assured by the advice received from officers in the meeting. It was noted that such installations were required for the future in order to maintain a good power supply.

 

There being no further debate, the Chairman moved to the recommendation. It was considered by the Committee that it would be prudent to delegate authority to approve the application to the Head of Planning and Coastal Management as suggested.

 

On the proposition of Councillor Hedgley, seconded by Councillor Blundell it was unanimously

Report of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management
9

The Committee received report ES/0114 of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management.  Planning permission was sought for the extension to the curtilage of a residential dwelling through the purchase of a piece of open space currently owned by East Suffolk Council.

The item was before the Committee due to the land being owned by the Council and thus triggering the need of the application to be decided by Members.

 

The Committee received a presentation on the application from the Trainee Planner.  

 

The site's location was outlined and it was denoted what land was owned by the Council and where the public footpath was.  The proposed relocation of the boundary fence and replacement planting was highlighted.

 

The Committee was shown photographs of the site in its current state.  It was noted that similar planting had been completed to what was proposed, and the proposed planting would cover the new fence.

 

The key issues were summarised as the impact on public amenity and public safety. This had been raised by Rushmere St Andrew Parish Council, but officers considered that the development would be an improvement that what was on the site currently.

 

The recommendation to approve, as set out in the report, was outlined to the Committee.

 

The Chairman invited questions to the Officer.

 

It was confirmed that the footpath would remain as it was and that new planting would result in a tidier hedge bordering it.  The Trainee Planner stated that safety concerns had been raised by Rushmere St Andrew Parish Council as it was concerned the path would be further encroached upon.

 

There being no speaking on the application, the Chairman invited the Committee to debate the proposal that was before it.

 

It was reiterated that the new planting would not encroach on to the footpath. The scheme had been reviewed positively by the Council's Arboricultural and Landscape Manager.

 

A member of the Committee considered that the current hedge was not being maintained and that the proposals would improve access and amenity.

 

There being no further debate, the Chairman moved to the recommendation.

 

On the proposition of Councillor Deacon, seconded by Councillor Blundell it was unanimously

 

RESOLVED

 

That the application be APPROVED subject to the following conditions:

1. The development hereby permitted shall be begun within a period of three years from the date of this permission. 

Reason: This condition is imposed in accordance with Section 18 of the Act (as amended).

2. The development hereby permitted shall be completed in all respects strictly in accordance with: Block Plan, Site Location Plan and supporting photographs; received 06 June 2019; for which permission is hereby granted and in compliance with any conditions imposed by the Local Planning Authority.

Reason: To secure a properly planned development.

3. The western site boundary (adjacent the hereby approved new fence) shall be planted as a Griselinia littoralis not later than the first planting season following the commencement of the development; and any plants which die during the first three years shall be replaced in the next planting season.

Reason: In the interests of amenity and the appearance of the locality.

4. Within 3 months of the fence being erection, the timber sections of the hereby approved fence shall be stained in a dark colour, and be retained in that colour thereafter. 

Reason: In the interest of visual amenity.

Report of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management
10

The Committee received report ES/0115 of the Head of Planning and Coastal Management.  The proposal sought to construct a single storey side and rear extension and had come before the Committee via the referral process to allow the concerns regarding the impact on the neighbouring residential property to be debated.

 

The Committee received a presentation on the application from the Area Planning and Enforcement Officer.

 

The site's location was outlined along with the proposed site layout. The Committee was shown drawings of the proposed elevations and floor plans.

 

Photographs of the site were displayed, showing various views in and out of the site.

 

The key issues were summarised as the principle of development, permitted development rights (pdrs), aesthetics, and residential amenity.

 

The recommendation to approve, as set out in the report, was outlined to the Committee.

 

The Chairman invited questions to the Officer.

 

A member of the Committee, who was also a member of Felixstowe Town Council, said that it was his understanding that the Town Council had submitted a recommendation, but that this was not included within the report. The Area Planning and Enforcement Officer clarified that this recommendation was contained within the update sheet.

 

In response to a question regarding the width of the passageway, the Development Management Team Leader noted that this area of the development could be completed under pdrs and officers therefore could not object to the proposed width of the passageway.

 

The Chairman invited Ms White, the applicant, to address the Committee.

 

Ms White explained that she was addressing the Committee as her agent was on holiday.  She noted that she was unfamiliar with the Local Plan policies and was therefore confused by the response from Felixstowe Town Council.

 

It was noted that the application before the Committee was the third drawing submitted; the scheme had originally proposed a double-storey extension in order to provide additional bedrooms for all family members.

 

Ms White considered the bay windows originally proposed had been in keeping with other houses in the area and considered there was a lot of diversity in the house designs in Church Road.

 

Two other houses in the road had double-storey extensions and Ms White had been disappointed about having to reduce the size of her proposals.  She explained that the extension would be within the large rear garden of the property and provide additional space for her family, negating the need to move house again.

 

Ms White highlighted the considerable work to restore the house that had already been completed.

 

The Chairman invited questions to Ms White.

 

When asked if she would consider the widening of the proposed passageway, Ms White noted that access was being provided where it had not been before.

 

The Chairman invited the Committee to debate the application that was before it.

 

A member of the Committee, who was also Ward Member for Western Felixstowe, concurred with the recommendations made by Felixstowe Town Council on the initial and revised applications. He considered that the proposal was too large for the site and referred to policies DM21 and DM23 of the Local Plan, stating that it was overdevelopment in relation to neighbouring properties.

 

It was confirmed in debate that the vast majority of the development would be allowed under permitted development rights.

 

It was acknowledged by members of the Committee that the development would be cramped, but he considered it suitable.

 

There being no further debate, the Chairman moved to the recommendation.

 

On the proposition of Councillor McCallum, seconded by Councillor Fryatt it was by a majority vote

 

RESOLVED

 

That the application be APPROVED subject to the following conditions:

1. The development hereby permitted shall begin no later than three years from the date of this permission.

Reason: This condition is imposed in accordance with Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act (1990) (as amended).

2. The development hereby permitted shall not be carried out other than in complete accordance with the following drawings: 

Site plan – received on 25 June 2019; and
Block plan, floor plans and elevations (drawing number: TMW/02/19 – Rev D) - received on 04 July 2019. 

Reason: For avoidance of doubt as to what has been considered and approved. 

3. The materials and finishes shall be as indicated within the submitted application and thereafter retained as such, unless otherwise agreed by the local planning authority. 

Reason: To ensure the satisfactory appearance of the development in the interests of visual amenity.
