Approved 29th June 2021

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

Decision awaited from West Northamptonshire Council 

DA/2021/0306

Land Adj Tudor House 15, Daventry Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TP

Outline application for one dwelling (all matters reserved).

Concerns raised by a local resident were heard.
The Parish Council object to this application on the following grounds:-
-The proposed outline application is contrary to Policy BO-D1 of Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Plan as it would alter the street scene in relation to green space “Lees Pit” identified in the plan.
-The access onto Kilsby Road is of concern, as it is adjacent to a Sycamore tree protected by virtue of a Tree preservation order TPO 10/T6 and also a telegraph pole.
Access to the proposed site is opposite Barby Play Area which is used for play and leisure equipment and for Parish events and is a significant asset to the village. The play area is accessed by a large number of children and access off Kilsby road would compromise their safety. -The proposed development is in front of the building line for Kilsby road, and situated very close to the boundary wall with the adjacent property which may damage the wall.

Refused 13th May 2021

DA/2021/0276

 22, Onley Park, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8AN

Demolition of side utility and erection of single storey extension to front and side with new garage 

Barby & Onley Parish Council has no objection to this application

Approved 14th June 2021

DA/2021/0165

31, Kilsby Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TU

Outline application for single dwelling (accessed from Almond Close)

Concerns raised by a local resident were heard.
The Parish Council object to this application on the following grounds:-
Although this property is the only house on Kilsby Road which can be accessed from Almond Close, the Parish Council is concerned that creating an access point at the end of Almond Close will make Almond Close very congested.
The proposal will cause damage to established tree roots on neighbouring properties, and a number of trees will need to be removed which will alter the visual amenity of the area.
The proposed site is small, and will cause loss of privacy and overlooking for the houses around, as the site is elevated in relation to neighbouring properties, and this proposal will lead to increase in the density of the housing in the area.
Should the District Council be minded to allow this application then parish council would like conditions applied to restrict the height of any building to single story. The applicant would need to relocate the street light which is currently at the access point at their cost and in consultation with the Parish Council.

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.

Decision awaited from Daventry District Council

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. 

Plans now amended to construction of 3 dwellings and associated work (access from Balding Close)

The Parish Council do not believe that reducing the number of dwellings from 4 to 3 materially changes the issues. The Parish Council wish to object to this application and reiterate previous comments. 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.

DA/2020/0310

Land At Manor Works, Barby Lane, Barby, Northamptonshire

Outline planning permission for the erection of two industrial buildings (resubmission)

Since this site is an existing brownfield site, the Parish Council would not object to B1 Office business use as per Policy BOGP-1 of their Neighbourhood Development Plan, but they STRONGLY OBJECT to B2 Industrial, or B8 Warehousing use.
The Parish Council do not consider that there is any change in business need, and the document outlining business need submitted with the application is 3 years old and therefore felt to be too old to be used as justification for this application.
The state of the local highway infrastructure and road surfaces especially Onley lane, Barby Lane and Welton Road are in a very poor condition and would not be suitable for HGV use.
Congestion at pick up times at the Primary School is high, and HGVs travelling through the village would compromised the safety of children.
Additional HGV traffic would not be welcomed through the village and is contrary to the aims of Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan.
It was noted that walking to the site via Byway over Cart Hill is not a suitable form of access.
Should DDC be minded to grant permission, then the Parish Council would expect some s106 funding to mitigate damage to the local highway network.

Amended plans were discussed on 9th November:

The Parish Council OBJECT to B2 Industrial, or B8 Warehousing use.

Since the site now has two private residential properties adjacent to it, these will be adversely affected by being in close proximity to Industrial buildings.

Grave concerns were raised over any application which would lead to an  increase in traffic at the site.

The state of the local highway infrastructure and road surfaces especially Onley lane, Barby Lane and Welton Road are in a very poor condition and would not be suitable for HGV use.

Congestion at pick up times at the Primary School is high, and HGVs travelling through the village would compromised the safety of children. Additional HGV traffic would not be welcomed through the village and is contrary to the aims of Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan.

It was noted that walking to the site via Byway over Cart Hill is not a suitable form of access to the village centre.

Should DDC be minded to grant permission, then the Parish Council would expect some funding to mitigate damage to the local highway network, and an assurance that any damage to the highway caused is repaired by the developers

Decision awaited from Daventry District Council

This application will be heard by virtual Planning Committee on 10 Feb at 6.15pm and is recommended for approval. It was resolved that Councillor S Gee would attend and reiterate the Parish Council concerns about traffic associated with B2 (General Industrial) or B8 (Storage or Distribution) use. The District Councillor also agreed to speak. Cllr Gee reported that he will explain that the local road network is inadequate for HGVs. He will also reference the planning framework document but will only have 3 minutes to speak.

He will request mitigation for repairs to the local road network and restriction on working hours. Cllr Sabine noted that the road was not repaired following works at Barby Sporting Club.

Cllr O’Reilly stated that people walk along Cart Hill which is very dangerous.
Cllr Lomax said she will raise that a condition is required in respect of a transport scheme.

Approved 12th February 2021

Parish Council Meeting on 8th March.  The Council discussed District Cllr Robertson’ comments made at DDC planning committee meeting (45 mins in). https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jrtmxBwKt7w# 

Despite always being supplied with an Agenda and minutes of every Parish Council meeting, our District Councillor Robertson as our elected representative has never engaged with the Parish and failed to support their view. It was resolved to send a letter of disappointment that the elected representative chose to over-ride the views of parishioners as stated by Councillors Lomax and Gee who had asked for conditions to be attached to this application to protect the village.
