 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 It has been withdrawn, and revised plans are awaited.

 Approved reserved matters 1st November 2018

6, The Green, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TS
 Outline application for demolition of workshop and construction of two detached dwellings with on-site parking (revised scheme).  
1 x 2 bed plot; 1 x 3 bed plot. Both houses to be 1400mm from the road.

Barby & Onley Parish Council has no objections to two dwellings on this site, but want the frontage of the dwellings to be in line with No 8 and 10 the Green.
Since this is an outline application, the council wish to state that they would object strongly if more than two dwellings are built on this site. The dwellings must be of a maximum of 2 storey, be in keeping with the adjacent cottages, No 8 and 10, and not be further forward towards the road than No 8 and 10.

12th November meeting - The Parish Council support the amended plan for two houses both with off road parking for two vehicles. The Council wish to ensure that the detailed design of the houses is in keeping with current cottages adjacent to the site.

 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.

 Prior approval for single storey flat roof rear extension 4.18m from originals house and 3.3m maximum height No comment  Prior Approval granted 25th September 2018

 DA/2018/0013

Land Off Balding Close, Barby, Northamptonshire
 

 Reserved matters application (appearance, scale and landscaping details) for construction of 6 dwellings, formation of extended access and related open space

 The Parish Council note that this land falls within the development boundary of Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Plan. They are concerned that there is insufficient parking spaces associated with each property. It is regrettable that there is no longer any Affordable housing associated with this development.
It was noted that construction traffic will inconvenience current residents and cause possible damage to the access road, so restrictions on construction should be considered, and the access road made good.
Following concerns raised by local residents, it was resolved to submit further comments on the layout and design of the application. The access road does not lend itself to two car flow as the width of the road is too narrow.  The Parish Council wish to see a clause preventing vehicles visiting houses in the close from parking on the access road. Is the width of access road sufficient to serve 9 properties?

The land falls away towards Brackendale Drive. Residents wish to ensure that Severn Trent are consulted as part of the application and are happy about the provision for surface water run off.

The height of Plots No1 and 2 are on higher ground that the houses behind in Brackendale Drive and the house to the north. The height of these plots will result in loss of light and amenity to neighbouring properties.

Amended Reserve Matters Application for construction of 6 dwellings. Land off Balding Close, Barby. To consider whether to submit further comments on the proposed amendments. It is impossible to tell how high the proposed houses will be in relation to houses in Brackendale Drive from finished floor heights, and therefore this amendment does nothing to address the concerns from immediate neighbours over the building heights in relation to their properties.

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.
