    Minutes:

    Outline application for the erection of 5 No. 2-bed dormer bungalows with associated infrastructure (affordable housing)

     

    The application was for outline planning permission for the construction of 5 two bedroomed dormer bungalows on Council owned land.  It was noted that all matters were reserved for future consideration, namely access, layout, scale appearance and landscaping.

     

    Whilst the detail would be subject to a further application, Officers were able to provide an indicative plan showing one potential configuration of the proposed dwellings.  Although not for decision at this stage, the plan showed the proposed access route from Drayton Close.

     

    Members were referred to the criteria for assessing applications for development on Incidental open space land under Policy 14 of the Borough of Redditch Local Plan No. 4.

     

    It was noted that the Council cannot currently demonstrate a 5 year supply of housing land and that for this application the presumption in favour of sustainable development would apply unless any adverse impacts would outweigh the benefits.  Officers had concluded that any adverse impacts arising from granting permission for the residential development of the site would not significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits of the scheme as a whole which would provide affordable housing to meet the Council’s identified housing needs. Accordingly, the scheme was recommended for approval.

     

    In response to questions from Members officers confirmed that the existing footpath that crossed the northern section of the site was under the control of Worcestershire County Council, and that prior to works commencing an application would have to be made for it to be stopped up. Based on the indicative plan, a new path had been included which would be positioned adjacent to the northern boundary of the proposed dwellings.

     

    RESOLVED THAT

     

    Having regard to the development plan and to all other material considerations, planning permission be GRANTED subject to the conditions set out on page 40 of the main agenda.
