608901014                 Planning Matters

                                      (i) Cllr Kingdom withdrew from table at this point and did not vote or make representation on this matter. 12/02455/STPLF – Land South & East of Old Priory, Station Road, South Cave

                                      To consider support of letter submitted to East Riding of Yorkshire Council in relation to highways consultation response:

We note the changes to the highways consultation response dated 24th September and am perplexed at the change in stance from the Highways department with no apparent justification.  The minor realignment of the access way to achieve a 6m access road, reduction in vision splay and radii does not address previous objections on Highway issues. We also  note the repositioning of the traffic island has not been amended. These objections appear to remain.


We see nothing in the minor detailed changes which mitigates the highways response dated 12 December 2012 which clearly stated;


“The construction of a junction in this location where there has been a history of accidents and speeding issues together with U-Turn problems on this strategic and important lorry route with the gradient of the A1034 is likely to create potential hazards to other road users. In addition the movements likely to be created at the junction, including braking and turning manoeuvres, would be likely to interrupt the safe and free flow of traffic to the detriment of highway safety.”


The Highway access is at the narrowest part of the downhill A1034 road and is dangerous. The previous highway response reminds you that “significant HGV flows along this section of the Network and the fact that the A1034 is a recognised abnormal load route.”  


It is therefore of further concern that the Highways response does not address it’s own objection, that the proposal still does not achieve a minimum 2 metre wide footway  especially along the busy A1034. This in light of the MfS recommendation for priority being given to pedestrian facilities in new residential layouts, when this junction will be heavily used by all pedestrians, especially with families from the 60 houses.


We do not understand how a large reduction in the vision splay and corner radii with only a 1.8m footpath suddenly makes this proposed access for 60 dwellings safe.  We would remind you that the provision of this dangerous and detrimental access is the sole reason for demolition of Nr 70 Market Place in the conservation area.


The writer of the Highway response refers to the compliance with NPPF guidance which itself is very broad brush and does not cover areas of detail. Nothing in that guidance prevents proposed dangerous junctions being refused.  In this case the Highways consultee should specify in what regard the proposal now complies with all guidance and what specifically has made them retract their previous objection (at a time when NPPF was applicable)


If this access cannot achieve the national standards recommended, (and recommended with very good reason), then "making do" is not sufficient reason to put lives at risk. South Cave has been the subject of a number of questionable highway junction and access decisions over the years which residents have to live with on a daily basis and this, if approved, will add to the problems.

                                      Cllr Barnett proposed the Parish Council support the letter and formally forward to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council,  Seconded Cllr Kelly, All in favour.    

                                      (ii)The Parish Council noted the appeal to Planning Inspectorate in respect of 14/01897/PLF – Land South of Fairways Farm, Northfield Close, South Cave, HU15 2EW – Mr Suri

                                      ERYC Appeal Case Number: 14/00064/REFUSE

                                      Planning Inspectorate Reference: APP/E2001/A/14/2226978

                                      Cllr Kingdom proposed a letter of support be send to ERYC supporting the refusal, Seconded Cllr Foley, All in favour.
