DA/2021/0226

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

Construction of detached dwelling

Neighbours objections to the application were heard.
The Parish Council resolved to OBJECT to this application as it was considered that it would lead to loss of privacy and light from the neighbouring property.
It was considered to be over-development of the plot as there are inconsistencies between the size of the drawing and the measurements contained within the application which means that the proposed dwelling would be a tight fit on the plot.
The proposed dwelling is a much bigger footprint and height than the historic property that was previously on that site.

Application DA/2021/0306 was refused on 13th May, and the same reasoning for objection applies in relation to this application:- “The proposal would result in the creation of a dwelling where the housing requirement for rural areas in the District has been reached and at a period when Daventry district has an excess 5 year housing land supply. The proposal would be in conflict with the spatial and housing allocation strategies set out in the relevant development plan as it fails to deliver environmental improvements for the reasons set out in refusal reason 2 below and fails to satisfy the other exceptional circumstances set out by Policy R1 of the adopted West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy 2014. Therefore, the proposal is in conflict with the development plan and the aims of national and local planning policies which seek to promote sustainable development, contrary to Policies SA, S1 (D1), S3 and R1 of the adopted West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy 2014 and Paragraph 12 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2019. The proposed development would create an unsatisfactory relationship with the site and surrounding environment. and would appear unduly cramped and obtrusive in the street scene and the proposal would harm the character and appearance of site and surrounding area. Moreover, a dwelling constructed on the site would not result in an appropriate density of development in light of the open character of the gardens of the houses along the street. The proposal is contrary to the development plan and national policies which requires regard to be given to ‘achieving appropriate densities’ and ‘the desirability of maintaining an area’s prevailing character and setting (including residential gardens)’ and which seeks to ensure that development be sympathetic to and respect local character and the surrounding built and natural environment. Therefore, the proposal is contrary to Policy S10 (i) of the adopted West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy 2014, Policies SP1 (G), RA2 (C) iii), iv), and ENV10 A) i) iii) vii) and B) of the adopted Settlements and Countryside Local Plan (Part 2) for Daventry District 2020, Policies BO-GP1 (e), BO-H1 (d), BO-D1 (a) (b) (f) (g) of the Made Barby and Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan 2016, and Paragraphs 122 d), 127 a) c) and 130 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2019.

The Parish Council OBJECT to this application and do not feel that the amendment materially alters their views. The proposal would result in the creation of a dwelling where the housing requirement for rural areas in the District has been reached and at a period when Daventry District has an excess 5 year housing land supply. The proposal would appear unduly cramped and obstructive in the street scene and be in conflict with the spatial and housing allocation strategies set out in the development plan and it does not constitute an environmental improvement due to the proposed layout and height. This would result in an overbearing side view of the proposed two storey dwelling onto existing neighbouring gardens to the detriment of the amenity that the occupants of those properties might reasonably expect to enjoy. This is contrary to policies R1(D) and R1(i) of the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy, policies RA2C(vi) and ENV10A(viii) of the Settlements and Countryside Local Plan and policy BO-GP1(c) of the Barby and Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan.

Cllr Humphreys agreed to request this application is heard by the planning committee if needed

Approved 7th October 2021

DA/2020/0469

The Cavans, Barby Lane, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8UX

Change of use of land to use as a residential gypsy caravan site comprising 5 pitches accommodating a total of 7 caravans, including no more than 5 static caravans/mobile homes, together with additional hardstanding and construction of ancillary amenity building.

Barby & Onley Parish Council OBJECT to this application since the Neighbourhood Development Plan Policy BO-H2 was drafted to prevent isolated development in open countryside. The policy was put in place to help protect the green space between the village and Rugby’s built up area.
Barby & Onley Parish Council object to this application as they feel it is over-development in the open countryside and contrary to Policy BO-H2 of their Neighbourhood Development Plan.
Although the Parish Council recognises that there is a shortage of Traveller and Gypsy sites within the District, the area already has a history of incremental development which has taken place without permission and has led to the countryside being defiled.
Because of this, the Parish Council would like this application to be discussed by the Planning Committee.
Should the District Council be minded to grant this application, then the Parish Council request that screening is put in place along the north and eastern boundaries of the site and that this application represents the maximum number of static caravans/mobile homes and touring caravans that may be permitted.

Concern was raised that the plans do not show the location of the Septic Tank, and no detail of the size of the proposed mobile homes is included in the application. The Parish Council would like confirmation that spacing between static caravans, and fire safety provision complies with current legislation.

On 12th April the Clerk was asked to write to the Planning Department to point out that the Dodford application for a traveller family pitch states that there is no evidenced need outstanding for such sites in the Daventry Area.

Re-consultation comments (15th November 2021)

Barby & Onley Parish Council OBJECT to this application since the Neighbourhood Development Plan 
Policy BO-H2 was drafted to prevent isolated development in open countryside. The policy was put in place to help protect the green space between the village and Rugby’s built up area.
Barby & Onley Parish Council object to this application as they feel it is over-development in the open countryside and contrary to Policy BO-H2 of their Neighbourhood Development Plan.

This area already has a history of incremental development which has taken place without permission and has led to the countryside being defiled. Because of this, the Parish Council would like this application to be discussed by the Planning Committee.

Should the District Council be minded to grant this application, then the Parish Council request that the proposed screening is put in place along the north and eastern boundaries of the site this planting season and that details and location of the Septic Tank are clarified and confirmed. The Parish Council would like confirmation that this application represents the maximum number of static caravans/mobile homes and touring caravans that may be permitted in this location and confirmation that spacing between static caravans, and fire safety provision complies with current legislation.

DA/2020/0783

Land To Rear Of 25B Daventry Road, Barby, Northamptonshire

Construction of 4 dwellings and associated work (access from Balding Close)

Barby & Onley Parish Council is STRONGLY OPPOSED to this application for the following reasons:-
  • This development is considered to be overdevelopment of the site, as the four houses proposed have very little garden or area for parking and there are no turning points. This is contrary to Policy BO-H1(d) of the parish Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)
  • Should this development go ahead, it will add to the 4 consented dwellings which have yet to be built, meaning that the Close will consist of 11 houses. NCC Transportation Design Guide for Residential Developments would not be met with regard to visibility requirements for both traffic and pedestrians, pathway provisions for pedestrians and minimum road widths required to adhere to access requirements for emergency and HGV vehicles.
  • The entrance into Balding Close off Daventry Road is bounded by a Grade 2 Listed wall, which will prevent a widening of the entrance splay.
  • The entrance is crossed by a pavement which is used daily as a route to the primary school.
  • There is already a surface water drainage problem down Daventry Road which will be exacerbated by building of additional dwellings. Contrary to Policy BO-D3 of Parish NDP.
  • The 4 houses proposed are adjacent to a Listed property “Stone Cottage” and would affect the setting and amenity of the listed property.
  • The design of the houses is contrary to Policy BO-D1 of Barby & Onley Parish NDP.

Should DDC be minded to grant this application, the Parish Council wish to see conditions limiting the hours of construction works to protect the amenity of current residents.

All objectors were asked to write directly to DDC planning Department stating their concerns.
