 DA/2018/0635

Land Off, Balding Close, Barby, Northamptonshire

 Construction of 4 dwellings and associated works including access off Balding Close / Daventry Road Barby & Onley Parish Council OBJECT to this application due to increased risk of flooding of properties in Brackendale Drive, loss of privacy and light, and concern over the width of the access road. The Council regrets the loss of affordable housing.
As the site has poor drainage and the natural fall of the land is into Brackendale Drive to the east, drainage will cause flooding in Brackendale Drive. The plan shows drainage to be via Balding Close. To achieve this the land will need to be built up to allow run off into Balding Close. It is impossible to tell how high the proposed houses will be in relation to houses in Brackendale Drive.
The parish council wish to ensure that conditions are imposed that prevent neighbouring properties being overlooked, and would ask that the layout of the site be revisited to minimise the effect on neighbouring properties, in particular that plot 1 is re-sited further from the rear boundary of the property.
Widening of the existing access road will not be sufficient to allow 2 cars to pass safely at any one time.

10th December comments

The Parish Council is concerned that no adequate provision has been made for drainage, and 4 large houses will exacerbate flooding in Brackendale Drive.
The elevation drawing does not show how much taller the houses will be than those in Brackendale Drive.

This application does not include affordable housing on this site which was provided by the previous application.

14th January comments
This application was recommended for refusal at the Planning committee meeting of 9th Jan, on grounds of being contrary to the local plan policy. It has been withdrawn, and revised plans are awaited.

11th February comments 

 

The Parish Council had no objections, but concern was raised over the drainage issues that had been highlighted by residents that still do not seem to be addressed.

 

 Approved reserved matters 1st November 2018

This application was recommended for refusal at the DDC Planning committee meeting of 9th January 2019, but has been withdrawn, and revised plans to address height of plot 1 are awaited.

Approved 21st February 2019

 Danetre Farm Bungalow, Kilsby Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TU

 Re-building of existing agricultural barn to provide a foaling and isolation unit, office and living accommodation over (part retrospective)

 Barby & Onley Parish Council Neighbourhood Plan Policy BO-H2 (1) would permit this development as it is required to meet an agricultural need. but they wish a condition to be attached that it remains linked with agricultural use.
The Parish council does not wish to see domestic dwellings built in open countryside as seems to be possible under the Q Clause of the current NPPF
Although the Parish Council raised no objection to this application, DDC refused the application as it
was not in keeping with the street scene. It was noted that the applicant has the right to appeal.
The Clerk was asked to write to DDC expressing regret that they failed to take note of local opinion.

 DA/2018/0253

 Village Farm 15, Rugby Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8UA

 Construction of domestic storage building
Barby & Onley Parish Council are strongly OPPOSED to this application on the following grounds:-
  1. The site of the proposed building falls outside the village development envelope as defined on page 39 of Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan.
  2. The site of the proposed building is within the curtilage of Village Farm, which is a Grade II listed building, and is located closer to two neighbouring Grade II listed buildings at 7 Rugby Road (house and cob barn) and to the curtilage listed building at 7A Rugby Road.
  3. By virtue of its size, scale and mass, and its proximity to Listed Buildings the Parish Council feel that this proposed development will have an adverse effect on neighbouring properties and impact on the setting of the Listed buildings. This conflicts with saved Local Plan Policies GN1, GN2 and Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan policy BO-GP1c.
  4. The proposed proximity of the building to the neighbouring boundary gives no space for any sort of landscaping to mitigate the adverse effects of such a large scale building. This conflicts with Local Plan policies GN1 and EN25.
No landscaping scheme, design and access statement, or detail of drainage arrangements have been submitted with the application.
This application is considered to be contrary to Policy BO-GP1( c ) of Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan which expects all new development to enhance the positive attributes of the village and local design features. This development is considered to impact on the character of the area within which it
is located.

Onley Grounds Equestrian Complex, Onley Grounds Farm, London Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8AJ


 Construction of equestrian indoor arena

 The Parish Council has no objection to this application so long as the public footpath remains accessible to members of the public at all times, and allows safe passage for pedestrians and dogs when equestrian activities are taking place. The Council wish to see some noise control to limit the use of tannoys in this area

10th December 2018 comments

Councillor James Wood declared an interest as a friend and neighbour of the applicant and left the meeting.

Barby & Onley Parish Council do not wish to remove footpath EC18 as this footpath allows people to walk around the Mediaeval monument and view it from all directions.

It was suggested that a small deviation around edge of the proposed Equestrian Indoor Arena would be more appropriate than completely removing a footpath.

14th January 2019 comments
The Council has no objections but wishes the footpath to be clearly signed.
