Minutes:

The Planning Committee considered planning application 20/0541 for the use of land as a holiday caravan park for the siting of 12 touring caravan spaces with associated amenity building, landscaping and car parking.

 

 

Miss Susan Parker, Head of Development Management, provided an overview of the application and explained that the site was ½ hectare in size with access from the corner of New Hall Avenue and backed onto Jubilee Lane.  The site was of mixed character with residential properties, commercial properties and glass-houses surrounding.  The site was within the Flood Zone 3 and the Marton Moss Strategic Site.

 

The application proposed 12 touring caravan spaces alongside the existing dwelling house, which would remain part of the site, a washroom would be erected close to the existing dwelling and the use of the site would be for holiday purposes only.

 

The application had not received any objections from statutory consultees, save for a late representation from the Marton Moss Neighbourhood Forum, and it was considered to comply with Policy CS26 of the Core Strategy, being outdoor recreational use appropriate to a rural area and Policy CS21, as an exceptional circumstance for niche tourism. 

 

Miss Parker drew Members attention to the Update Report which noted that amended layout plans had been received, which removed the vehicle access between the application site and adjacent land with an amended location plan and required amendments to conditions 2, 8, 13 and 20 for accuracy.  The Update Report also proposed changes to conditions 11 and 23 for a management plan and to restrict the number of days that a caravan or motorhome could be stationed on the application site. 

 

Miss Parker stated that the application was considered to an acceptable use of the site and was recommended for approval, subject to the conditions outlined in the Committee Report and the Update Report.

 

Mr Pete Langley spoke in objection to the application on behalf of residents surrounding the application site and noted concerns regarding noise nuisance and how a proposed 10pm curfew would be managed.  He stated that there were 10 caravan sites within a 1.5 mile radius of the site.  Mr Langley raised concerns regarding flooding of the site if hardstanding was to be added to the ground and how this would impact on water run-off, particularly with regards to foul water and the impact on wildlife. 

 

Mrs Amanda Wrigley, applicant, spoke on the application and stated that both she and her family lived on the site and could address any noise issues.  She stated that plans had now been revised to remove the entry/exit point at Jubilee Lane.  With regards to the concrete hard standing, she noted that they had been instructed to propose to use that material.  

 

Miss Parker responded to the comments made by the objector and applicant and confirmed the amended plan had been received which clarified the access and would ensure landscaping continued along the eastern boundary to restrict vehicular access at Jubilee Lane.  In respect of noise concerns, she stated  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.
