Barby & Onley Recent Planning Applications

Daventry District Council makes the decision on all local planning matters and you can see all planning applications on their website.  Click here to access their Planning portal.

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.

 Decision awaited
Building Off Barby Road, Kilsby (Barby Parish)
 Erection of replacement agricultural building for storage of animal feed and other agricultural supplements and occasional penning of livestock (part retrospective).

 No objections, however the Parish Council is disappointed that this application is part-retrospective Approved 20th July2020
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.

 Work to tree subject of Tree Preservation Order DA 80
The Parish Council strongly objects to any tree being removed for aesthetic reasons, but sensitive pruning to prolong the life of the tree is supported
 Approved 28th January 2020
Land Adj Bridle Lodge, Rugby Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8UB

 Construction of dwelling Although this site sits just outside the village envelope, the Parish Council are prepared to support it, since it represents exceptional design and is of architectural significance.
The Council wish conditions to be applied to
a) Ensure that the byway entrance is not restricted for public access in any way
b) Ensure that the roadway is surfaced to the start of the byway
c) request that a vantage point with information board and viewing platform is incorporated to allow the public to view the Motte and be made aware of its history and significance.
 Decision awaited
The Cavans, Barby Lane, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8UX
 Siting of two portakabins for use as toilet block and washing and storage (retrospective)

 Barby and Onley Parish Council object to this application as the original application stated that the site could have two mobile homes that can be towed on the public highway. There are currently 2 portacabins and 2 static caravans which cannot be towed on the public highway and the site is therefore in breach of the conditions of DA/2017/0277.
It was noted that although this site does have the benefit of planning consent, there are numerous other caravans used for accommodation in neighbouring fields which do not have the benefit of planning consent. The Parish Council wish this to be robustly investigated by the enforcement officer.
It was resolved to write to CEO of DDC to ask that a robust investigation be carried out.
 Approved 15th January 2020
Note Decision Appealed 2nd January 2020

27 Brackendale Drive, Barby

 Outline planning permission for one dwelling
Appeal discussed on 13th January 2020. The Parish Council resolved to bring the Neighbourhood Plan to the attention of the Inspectorate.
The Parish Council OBJECT to this Outline application.
This application is contrary to Policy BO-H2 of Barby and Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan, and Policy R1 of West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy, since this development falls outside the existing development confines of the village as defined in Barby and Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan.
Refused 12th September 2019

Appealed 2nd January 2020

Appeal dismissed 25th March 2020
