2024/1296/FULL

Proposal: Proposed detached annexe. Location: 3 Star Corner Barby CV23 8UD


It was RESOLVED to object to this application for the following reasons:
1) It is unclear what type of application has been submitted - a full planning application or a householder application. The letter to neighbours states that it is a householder application.

2) The proposed development is not an annexe.

3) It is contrary to policy GP1 of the Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan which states that 'All new development will be expected to enhance the positive attributes of the villages and local design features. Development will not be permitted where it has a detrimental impact on the character of the area in which it is located.' This policy also states that there should be adequate onsite parking which this proposed development does not have. Three parking spaces are needed for this size of development.

4) It is contrary to policy D1 of the Barby and Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan due to the density of the proposed development and the effect on the street scene. The proposed development is too close to the neighbouring property. 5) The quota for self builds in the parish has been exceeded.

6) This should be dealt with a new separate full planning application not an annexe.

Approved 3rd February 2023

WND/2022/1063

Building To North West Of Longdown Lane, Barby, Northamptonshire

Conversion of agricultural building to dwelling and change of use of curtilage to residential.

It was RESOLVED to object to this application and to ask WNC Councillor Humphreys to request it be decided by the planning committee.

 

The following reasons were agreed for the objection:
1. The development of this site is contrary to BO-H1 of the neighbourhood plan as it is not an infill site and is outside the settlement boundary. The development of the site is also contrary to B0-H1 as it is not a complete scheme and is not the first stage of a larger development;
2. The development of this site is contrary to BO-H2 of the neighbourhood plan as it is an isolated development in the open countryside, which is not permitted. The applicant claims they meet the exemptions for this but these are not valid;
3. The location of this development poses a serious risk to road safety. It is contrary to BO-GP1 of the neighbourhood plan which requires that any development “(d) Ensures safe and efficient operation of the existing transport and road infrastructure”. The Parish Council has received representations from members of the public who are concerned about the safety of the roads at this location due to the road width and the dangerous crossroads. They have cited known accidents. The access to the development proposed for residents and building materials will be from an effectively 5-way junction that is already hazardous. The Parish Council has raised concerns regarding the safety of this area of road on many occasions as a large number of accidents have occurred at this junction;
4. The proposed development is contrary to BO-D1 of the neighbourhood plan which requires good quality design. This proposed development is not of good quality and does not maintain the special character of existing residential properties;
5. The proposed development is contrary to BO-D2 of the neighbourhood plan which requires that local habitat is preserved. There is no evidence provided by the applicant in relation to the preservation of the natural habitat;
6. The only option for parking more than two vehicles would be on a public footpath (EC6) which is well used by local people;
7. The previous application, WNDPD/2022/0041, for the development of this site was made as a change of use of an agricultural building to one dwelling under Class Q. The application was refused and one of the reasons for refusal was that no structural survey had been included. The current proposal is very similar to the previous planning application, proposing the same size building/structure with two bedrooms rather than one bedroom but again no structural survey has been included.

The Parish Council has noted that the applicant has sought to increase the property from a one bedroom to a two bedroom development and seeks to use the Housing Needs Survey of 2019 to justify building in open countryside. The Parish Council would again question the validity of the Housing Needs Survey 2019.

Refused 22nd May 2023

WND/2021/0923

Land To Rear Of 31, Kilsby Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TU

Reserved matters application (appearance, landscaping and scale) for construction of dwelling (access from Almond Close).

It was RESOLVED to object to this application for the following reasons:
1. The application is contrary to Barby and Onley Neighbourhood Plan and in particular the following policies: BOD2; BO91; BOGP1; BOH1; BO93; and BOD3.
2. The new plan differs from the outline application in size, rotation and boundary. There was also no dormer at the back of the property on the original plan.
3. The applicant has not provided the detail requested by the planning officer in the original decision regarding the outline planning application.
4. The Parish Council previously requested that the Housing Needs Survey 2019, which is referred to in this application, be reviewed as the data gathered was not reliable. As stated in that letter: “Only 84 households out of 561 completed the survey and only 22 out of the 84 people who completed the survey want alternative housing, so we do not feel that the report is representative of the views of the parish in any way.”
5. There is not sufficient space between the proposed property and the boundary of the neighbouring property. The Parish Council has been advised that the north wall of the proposed dwelling is only 30cm from the red boundary on the plan and there is an area where it overlaps the boundary.
6. The proposed polar white render of the property is not in keeping with the appearance of the existing properties.
7. The size and elevation of the property will have an overbearing impact on properties in both Almond Close and when viewed from Kilsby Road. There is insufficient information as to the elevations.
8. There is inadequate parking for this size of property.

It was RESOLVED to request that this application be referred to the WNC planning committee to be decided and to ask Cllr Humphreys to support this request.  

At a meeting on 13th March it was RESOLVED to object to this application and to ask that it be decided by the planning committee. A list of reasons and neighbourhood plan policies it contradicted were agreed.

Land To Rear Of 25B, Daventry Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TP

Construction of 3 dwellings and associated works (access from Balding Close) (revised scheme)

The Parish Council objects to this application since the site is on higher ground than the surrounding properties meaning that the height of the proposed dwellings will be intrusive and reduce the amenity of neighbouring properties.
The location of the proposed house No 3 in particular is very close to the boundary of 1 Balding Close which will seriously reduce the amenity for the residents by overshadowing due to the height differential of the gardens.  

Amended scheme to be discussed  13th June 2022

The Parish Council wished to re-iterate their previous comments on this application and would like clarification on the listed wall. 

Application withdrawn 14th August 2023

As a statutory consultee the Parish Council resolved to object to this planning application. Although the Council had no objection to the extension of the existing clubhouse, they object strongly to any extension to shooting hours and object strongly to any further bunding. A letter of objection to be submitted the planning officer.

WND/2021/0777

Land Off Barby Road, Kilsby, Northamptonshire

Outline application for construction of up to 44 dwellings with associated landscaping, open space, drainage infrastructure and associated works (all matters reserved except access from Barby Road).

Although Barby & Onley PC are not consultees on this application, they may feel it will have an impact on the village of Barby and therefore wish to make comment.

Barby & Onley Parish Council wished to object to this application since it is outside Kilsby parish development envelope and contrary to their Neighbourhood Plan. It will compromise an intervillage footpath. Additional traffic will put undue pressure on the road networks in the area. The access onto the site is onto a minor road with poor visibility. The Parish object in principle to housing developments being built outside a parish boundary without sufficient infrastructure being put in place to support them.

Decision awaited from West Northamptonshire Council
