 PROPOSED SECOND STOREY REAR EXTENSION



 

Amended application to lower the roof height of the proposed second storey but to introduce 4 new secondary storey windows overlooking the neighbouring property of Arnold House. - May 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amended Application June 2017 

 The Parish Council object to this application as it is contrary to policy BO-D1 (b) of Barby and Onley Neighbourhood Plan. The proposed extension by virtue of its height and size and scale will result in loss of visual amenity and will not make a positive contribution to the distinctive character of the area.


Barby & Onley Parish Council object to this Planning Application. This application is contrary to Policy BO-D1 (b) of the Barby and Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan.

“The Parish of Barby and Onley has a distinctive and special character. Development within the village of Barby and Onley will be permitted where it makes a positive contribution to that distinctive character and is of good quality design. In seeking to protect and enhance the unique identity of the area, development will take account of the following:
(b) Suitability of the overall design and appearance of the proposed development (including size, scale, density, layout, access, lighting, street furniture, and signage) when assessed in relationship with surrounding buildings, existing layout, spaces, vegetation, water areas and other features.”
The Parish Council objection to this application as it:
• compromises the privacy of the neighbouring property, namely “Arnold House”.
• By virtue of the size, scale and design the proposal is not in keeping with the locality
• it will have a detrimental impact on the character of the area in which it is located.

 

The Parish Council wished to reiterate previous comments as they consider the extension to be overlarge and the addition of a balcony will cause a reduction in privacy for the neighbouring property.

Hopthorne Cottage 16, Kilsby Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TT

Listed Building Consent for conversion of building to self-contained residential annexe.
Comments as below for DA/2017/0021. Concerns were raised over the proposed woodburning stove. If a very high
chimney is necessary to prevent smoke affecting the neighbouring two storey properties, this might be incongrous in the street scene. If it is deemed acceptable by the Conservation Officer and Building control then the Parish Council has no further concerns.

 

Approved

DA/2017/0021

Hopthorne Cottage 16, Kilsby Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TT

Conversion of building to self-contained residential annexe
The Parish Council had no objections but since there is no parking associated with this annexe, they wish to have conditions included on the permission that the annexe remains part of the main dwelling and is not sold or let separately and that all vehicles associated with the annexe are to be parked in the driveway of the main house (Hopthorne Cottage) and not on the road.

DA/2016/1155

Land off Barby Lane, Barby, Northamptonshire

 

Construction of replacement agricultural building The Parish Council has no objection to replacement of an existing agricultural barn on this site but asked that a condition is applied to ensure that it remains as an agricultural non-residential site due to the number of other non-permanent residential sites which can be found in adjacent fields. The sheds, and mobile caravans in the vicinity of this application are unsightly and alter the character of the open countryside. It was agreed that the Clerk would submit a photo with the comments.
 Approved

DA/2016/1140

Barby Sporting Club, Barby Lane, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8UX 

Single storey extension to clubhouse to provide ancillary retail storage and reception facilities. Construction of dwelling for ground operational manager. Remodelled car park, service yard and landscaping.

 

The Parish Council OBJECT to this application. Although the Council had no objection to the extension to the club house to provide ancillary retail storage and reception facilities, they object to construction of a dwelling . This constitutes development in open countryside and is contrary to Policy BO-D2 of Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Plan which seeks to protect and enhance local landscape, character. It is contrary to Policy BOH2 of the parish Neighbourhood Plan and Policy R1 of West Northants Joint Core Strategy. The proposed development, by reason of its close proximity to a shooting club, would result in a location of residence that would serve to detract from the residential amenities of its occupiers by virtue of inappropriate noise and disturbance, thereby contrary to Paragraph 14 and Section 6 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), the Government’s NPPG on Noise, policies S1(D)(4), H1(f) and H6(c) of the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy and saved policy GN2 of the Daventry District Local Plan.

DA/2016/1112

The Paddocks, Land West Of Barby Lane, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8UJ 

Change of use of land from agriculture to a mixed use comprising residential and keeping of thoroughbred horses, chickens and house dogs, and associated stationing of single residential mobile home for one gypsy family. Construction of hardstanding and parking area, and erection of outbuilding incorporating chicken hutch and dog pen.

 

It was noted that this application is retrospective and surrounded by 6’ close board fencing around the site, which has a generator running.
The Parish Council OBJECT to this retrospective application as it constitutes development in open countryside and is contrary to Policy BO-D2 of Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Plan which seeks to protect and enhance local landscape, character and views. In addition it will have a detrimental effect on the Oxford canal conservation corridor.
This is isolated development in open countryside and is contrary to Policy BOH2 of the parish Neighbourhood Plan and Policy R1 of West Northants Joint Core Strategy.
As with Application DA/2015/0865 which was refused in August 2016, it is felt that this proposal would detract from local conditions of highway and pedestrian safety, thereby contrary to Paragraph 14 and Section 4 of the National Planning Policy Framework, policy H6(a) of the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy and saved policy GN2 of the Daventry District Local Plan.
The proposed development, by reason of its close proximity to a shooting club, would result in a location of residence that would serve to detract from the residential amenities of its occupiers by virtue of inappropriate noise and disturbance, thereby contrary to Paragraph 14 and Section 6 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), the Government’s NPPG on Noise, policies S1(D)(4), H1(f) and H6(c) of the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy and saved policy GN2 of the Daventry District Local Plan.

DA/2016/1099

3, Star Corner, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8UD

Minor material amendment (Section 73) to DA/2015/0905. Application to cover re-positioning of bathroom window from west to east elevation. Change of details to eaves. Addition of roof lights & 2nd floor storage area with stairs to access. Change of downstairs window on west elevation to French doors
The Parish Council OBJECT to this application as they do not consider this to be a minor material amendment since they consider that the property has breached planning consent DA/2015/0905 substantially.
The height of the extension has been increased to form a three storey dwelling. The building is overbearing in size and has compromised the privacy of the adjacent listed buildings.
Windows have been inserted contrary to the planning consent granted.
By way of its increased height, and fenestration this building has materially altered the street scene and reduce the amenity of the neighbouring listed properties.
The Listed Conservation Officer to be requested to view the site and its effect on the setting of the listed properties. The Parish Council wish this application to be referred to planning committee for decision.

 

Approved

R16/2391

LAND AT WALDINGS FARM BARBY LANE HILLMORTON RUGBY WARWICKSHIRE 

Residential development of up to 107 dwellings including vehicular access from Barby Lane, open space, landscaping, surface water attenuation pond, footpaths, cycleways and associated infrastructure (all existing buildings to be demolished) (outline planning application to include access with appearance, landscaping, layout and scale reserved) (re-submission following refusal of planning application R15/2039)

It was unanimously resolved to reiterate previous objections.

Previous Objections to Application R15/2039
Although this application falls within Warwickshire and Barby & Onley Parish Council are not consultees the Parish wished to OBJECT as the application site is outside the confines of Rugby Local Plan Development area.  An additional 110 houses will increase the amount of traffic in the area.  Traffic will use Barby Lane as a rat-run through Barby. This road is unsuitable for extra traffic.  It is almost impossible to turn right at the end of Barby Lane into Hillmorton village.  The development would overlook the Rainsbrook valley and have a negative impact on the rural setting of the Rainsbrook valley and the Oxford canal corridor.

District Councillor C Lomax reported that there is a duty between neighbouring Planning Authorities to cooperate. The Clerk to ask Daventry DC to support their objection, and request that neighbouring parishes across the county boundary are notified of applications

 

Refusal

DA/2016/1019

Land Adjacent Hopthorne Farm, Kilsby Road, Barby, Northamptonshire

Demolition of existing buildings. Construction of two detached dwellings and garage block
The Parish Council OBJECT to this application as they wish to see the layout of the site revised.
The Council want the site of Plot 1 to be moved away from the southern boundary since the land is significantly higher to the south of the plot, and a two storey element built at the highest point of the land will dominate the street scene and adversely affect the listed property adjacent to the site.
The Council is concerned that by positioning Plot 1 so close to the southern boundary it is likely to cause root damage to the mature trees on the boundary, and reduce the amenity and privacy for the neighbouring listed property.
The Council wish to see the rear wall of the stables retained as the boundary between the site and No 20 to protect the amenity and privacy of the neighbour.
Concern was raised over highway safety of the access onto Kilsby Road as were raised against the original application.
Due to the large number of concerns raised by residents the Parish Council ask that this application be referred to the Planning Committee for decision.

Parking Space At Garage Court D Allocated To 41, Onley Park, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8AN

Change of use of parking space to siting of storage container (retrospective)
The Parish Council object to this application as it is
inappropriate use of a parking area, and results in loss of amenity and security concerns for the neighbouring property. If the officer is minded to approve this application the Parish Council ask that it can be heard by the planning committee.

 

Refusal

APP/Y2810/W/16/3152684
Relating to DA/2015/0865

Land To East Of The Moorings, Barby Lane, Barby, Northamptonshire

Change of use of land to use as a residential site for one gypsy family with two caravans, laying of hard-standing, construction of driveway, improvement to access and construction of amenity building
Barby and Onley Parish Council wish to OBJECT to this
application as since August 2015 the DCLG “Planning policy for Traveller sites” defines the term “Traveller” for planning related purposes and excludes those who have permanently ceased from travelling.  In the attached Design and Access statement submitted with this application, the reasoning for requiring this site is to allow children to attend school. This clearly indicates that the site will be a
permanent residence. Building in the open countryside is contrary to WNJCS and DDC saved local plan policies

Refusal 19th May 2016, Appeal dismissed 21st February 2017.
