To approve response to Planning Inspectorate

Cllr Barnett proposed the Parish Council approved the following response to be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate:

We refer you to our detailed letter of objection to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council regarding this appeal and would like to support the Council in its decision to refuse the application. We do not go into detail here as this is contained in our recommendation to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council which we understand you will see and we request you review our arguments as set out there.

In summary

There are two strands to our objections,

1)      firstly on Policy grounds

a)      The draft publication East Riding Local Plan should take precedence over the time expired Beverley Borough Local Plan which omits this site from the house allocations and redraws the development limits boundary to exclude the site. The site is included in the allocations on the basis of a 30yr appeal which although allowed on the grounds of the urgent need for housing remains to be developed

b)      the JSP saved policies DS4 and H7 only allow for limited scale sites of 5 or less dwellings with a presumption of fulfilling local needs. The site is a major site and no evidence of local need, (required under the extant plan) for Market dwellings has been offered

c)       National Planning Policy Framework  paragraphs supports sustainable development and we point to the unsustainable nature of the site in accessing jobs, leisure or local services by private car due to it's location and arrangement with the rest of the village. There will be an increase in commuting traffic, additional pressures on the infrastructure such as drainage, additional pressures on oversubscribed doctors, schools, dentists.  There is the impact on the overstressed drainage capacity and infrastructure and the flood impact on areas downstream of the application site

d)      Contrary to NPPF core planning principles on sustainable development, South Cave is a commuter village and development adds to the carbon footprint with poor public transport with no likelihood of improvement.  Access to public transport is too far by foot and walking to most of the local facilities is impracticable to all but the young, fit and healthy.

e)      We highlight of the overlong bus journeys to centres of work and retail  or the Secondary School. the access to a poor bus service is compounded with the site being over twice the recommended distance from a bus stop

f)       All of these impacts significantly and demonstrably outweigh the potential benefits to the village of obtaining 4 affordable houses (no such provision has been forthcoming in the substantial housing development in South Cave to date)

2)      On the application itself

a)      There are issues of excessive local traffic and access including access via poorly constructed sub standard junctions. The impact of additional hotspots on the main crossroads and narrow road to the School, doctors and amenities.

b)      There are  the over long distances involved in typical walking journeys to facilities, especially with young children

c)       There is the inadequate drainage and surcharging sewers to which this development will place further stress.

d)      The flooding from the fields above the proposed site and the impact on the site on property further downstream in flood zone 3 has not been addressed

e)      The lack of provision of adequate children's play space within the application is critical and any commuted sum in lieu of Children's play area is unacceptable.  

Should you be minded to approve the application then we would request the consideration of a number of conditions are placed on the approval;

3)      Flooding and drainage

a)      The development should provide a sustainable urban drainage system for all surface water from the run off from land above the site, the dwellings and the highway to be sufficiently retained on site and slowly released. In order to prevent localised flooding and flooding further down the valley at West End which is zoned in flood risk 3.

4)      Open play space provision

a)      To provide the entire amount of play space required by the local plan of 468sq.m. (for 24 dwellings) In order to have no detrimental affect on the local area due to the complete lack of play space in the immediate local area to the East of the A1034. We ask that the Number of dwellings be checked against the full play provision as it may be that when provided 24 dwellings cannot be accommodated within the site and this number may have to be reduced. A commuted sum to reduce children’s play space is not appropriate in this case. The plan although indicative shows a very small space wedged into a corner contrary to good design which is unacceptable and should be redesigned to be properly overlooked and secure by design.

b)      To provide for a commuted sum to purchase 936sq.m. Of outdoor sport area on appropriate land elsewhere in the village to meet the requirement. The development should not add to the pressure on Children’s play space due to the shortfall of play space in the immediate local area. Accessibility is the issue at hand. The only facilities are across the busy A1034 a considerable distance away from the development.

5)      Highways and access

a)      The Junction at Little Wold Lane and Beverley Road, the junction with Little Wold Lane and The Stray and the approach road which is below guidance minimums be improved to the minimum standards set out in the Manual for Streets on the grounds of highway safety.

6)      Boundary treatments

a)      Suitable planting of hedgerows and semi-mature trees are set out on the Northern boundary to provide screening from the northern approach to the village from the A1034.

Seconded Cllr M. Turner, All in favour.
