81. AMENDMENTS TO PREVIOUS APPLICATIONS – None

82. NEW PLANNING APPLICATIONS

i)       P10/W1824/RM (Reserved Matters) (Minor) Land adjoining Littleworth Park, Cooper Close. Reserved Matters regarding P10/W0461/O – Layout, scale, appearance, the means of access, vehicle and cycle parking, sustainable forms of construction and the landscaping of the site. A number of letters of objection that had been sent to SODC were read out and Cllr Bell spoke to his letter of objection. Agreed to Recommend Refusal. The Committee wishes to reiterate its reason for objecting. This application is an overdevelopment of the site out of keeping with that part of the village.

The land at the west end of the site is not viable as an amenity/recreation space (as suggested by the Design Statement) due to the embankment by the bridge. Also, isn’t the land by the bridge owned by British Railways and not the applicant? Furthermore who is going to be responsible for its maintenance.

There is concern over the diverting of the footpath, changing a ‘safe way to school’ and into the village to a route across drives and parked cars. If the house on plot 1 is removed from the plan the present route of the footpath may still be viable.

Also what is going to happen to the footpath and its users whilst construction is going on?

Coopers Close and the footpath have not been adopted by OCC Highways. How does this affect the development?

The Committee would like the Planning Officer to make a site visit to look at the viability of the house at plot 1.

iv)       P11/W0039/DA (Other[Deemed]) Land at the rear of The Windmill Windmill Lane TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING ACT 1990 (AS AMENDED)  NOTIFICATION OF ENFORCEMENT APPEAL Location: Land at the rear of The Windmill, Windmill Lane  Alleged breach : Change of use of the Land edged red on the plan from agriculture to mixed purposes, consisting of: 1) agriculture and  2) storage purposes located in the approximate position shown hatched blue within the Land edged red on the Plan. Agreed to write to the Planning Inspectorate supporting SODC’s enforcement notices and objecting to an extension in the time for compliance. The land, which is in the Green Belt, and highly visible and intrusive in views from across the valley should be returned to agricultural use. The Parish Council would be opposed to any granting of a Certificate of Lawful Development. The parish Council further believes that the land should be viewed from the Acremead/Keydale Road area of the village as the full impact is not seen from Windmill Lane.
