29.1          The Technical Planning Manager submitted a Schedule comprising planning applications and proposals with recommendations thereon.  Copies of this had been circulated to Members as Appendix A to the Agenda for the meeting.  The objections to, support for, and observations upon the various applications as referred to in Appendix 1 attached to these Minutes were presented to the Committee and duly taken into consideration by Members prior to decisions being made on those applications.

19/00689/FUL – Tree Tops, Church End Lane, Twyning

29.2          This application was for the erection of two self-build two storey dwellings and associated detached garages, provision of associated vehicular access and landscaping (revised scheme to reference 18/00934/FUL).  The Committee had visited the application site on Friday 11 October 2019.

29.3          The Planning Officer advised that the site comprised a triangular shaped parcel of land on the northern side of Church End Lane, Twyning and was adjacent to a public right of way.  There was an existing static home on the site along with associated timber sheds and a detached double garage.  The application proposed the removal of these buildings and the erection of two self-build two storey dwellings as well as construction of two detached garages, each sitting forward of the front elevation of its associated dwelling.  The existing vehicular access point to the site would be retained to service the proposed dwelling at plot 1 and an additional vehicular access point would be provided towards the western side of the front boundary to serve the proposed dwelling at plot 2.  As set out within the Officer report, there had been a number of historical planning applications proposing the erection of dwellings on the site, all of which had been refused and, where they had been made, appeals had been dismissed.  The most recent planning application on this site, also proposing the erection of two self-build two storey dwellings and associated detached garages, was refused planning permission on 5 April 2019 and the reasons for refusal were included in the Officer report.  It was noted that the development currently proposed was very similar to that which had been proposed under the previously refused application.  The submitted plans showed the elevations and floor plans of the proposed four bed dwellings and the detached garages.  As detailed in the Officer report, the extent of the residential development boundary of Twyning was defined within the adopted Twyning Neighbourhood Development Plan; the application site was located outside, and approximately 0.8 miles to the south-west, of the boundary in a rural location  The Twyning Neighbourhood Development Plan was not supportive of new housing development in the location proposed and the proposal was judged to be entirely inconsistent with the spatial strategy of the development plan, as set out within the Joint Core Strategy and the Twyning Neighbourhood Development Plan.  Furthermore, the proposal would not accord with the environmental dimension of sustainability as a result of the location of the application site, remote from the nearest amenities and facilities, and the need  ...  view the full minutes text for item 29a
