Elkington lane is heavily used by walkers and sight lines may not be sufficient to provide safety for pedestrians when vehicles negotiate the access.
There is insufficient space on the site for overflow parking. Can a condition be applied to ensure that all visiting vehicles are parked within the site? Parking in Elkington Lane cannot take place as the lane is in constant use by farm vehicles.

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
 Approved 12th October 2017


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

Appeal APP/Y2810/W/17/3178713  Container at 41 Onley Park (original No DA/2016/0969)
The Parish Council resolved to reiterate their original comments that to place a container in a parking space is an inappropriate use of the parking area, detracts from the visual amenity of the area and causes a security concern to neighbouring residents since their property can now be accessed should someone climb onto the container.
2nd February 2017
Appeal Lodged 16th August 2017
Appeal dismissed - Storage Container must be removed
