    PROPOSAL: Outline Application for the erection of 5no. dwellings including layout and scale

     

    It was proposed by the Chairman and seconded by Vice Chairman:

     

    “THAT the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

     

    ‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reason:

     

    1  The proposed development, by virtue of its location, would result in a loss of openness and creation of an inappropriate form of residential development along Manston Road, unrelated to existing built development and appearing obtrusive and incongruous within the open countryside, significantly harmful upon the intrinsic open rural character and beauty of the countryside contrary to Thanet Local Plan Policies D1, CC1 and CC2 and paragraphs 11, 127, 170 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

     2  The proposed development, represents uncharacteristic frontage development along Manston Road, which is isolated in its appearance and appears out of keeping with the surrounding pattern of development, thereby failing to respond to the rural character and appearance of the area, contrary to Policy D1 of the Thanet Local Plan and paragraphs 127 and 170 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

     3  The proposed development will result in additional pressure on the Thanet Coast and Sandwich Bay Special Protection Area (SPA), and Sandwich Bay and Hacklinge Marshes Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and in the absence of an acceptable form of mitigation to relieve the pressure, the proposed development would be contrary to paragraphs 176 and 177 of the National Planning Policy Framework.’”

     

    Further to debate, the motion was put to the vote and declared LOST.

     

    Then, it was proposed by the Vice Chairman and seconded by Councillor D Saunders:

     

    “THAT the application be deferred and delegated to officers for approval subject to the receipt of a legal obligation securing the SAMM contribution and safeguarding conditions including archaeology, highways, a restriction on the height of the dwellings to two storey and the retention and provision of a landscape buffer to the western and southern boundary of the site, as the development would not result in landscape harm to the countryside.”

     

    Upon being put to the vote, the motion was declared CARRIED.

Schedule of Planning Applications pdf icon PDF 99 KB

    To consider the report of the Director of Community Services, copy attached for Members of the Committee.

     

    Note: Copies of correspondence relating to applications received will be available for members’ perusal in the Members’ Room from 5.00pm on the Friday before the meeting until the date of the meeting.

    Minutes:

    The Planning Applications Manager reported to the Planning Committee:

     

    For agenda item D05 for Garages At Kingston Close, Ramsgate, there is an error in the calculation for the contribution to the Strategic Access Management and Monitoring Plan. The development comprises 8No. 3 bedroom dwellings and 1No. 4 bedroom dwelling and therefore the required contribution should be £3922 (£424 per three bedroom dwelling and £530 per four bedroom dwelling). Should members decide to grant planning permission for the proposed development, this contribution would be secured by the planning department prior to the determination of the application. The officer recommendation for the application to defer for approval subject to conditions is therefore updated to reflect the revised contribution.
