Councillor Barbara Hilton, Chairman

12/00514 StMarysSchoolSports Facilities – Objections Statement

The committee considered that the scale, increased intensity and visibility of use involved brought the proposal into conflict with GB policy GB2(B).

This is a Green Belt site surrounded by residential developments and with a common boundary with the busy Coronation Road.  GB policy allows under GB1 permission for essential facilities for outdoor sport but under policy GB2 does not permit developments which would either have a greater impact on the openness of a site than the existing or a material intensification of existing levels of activity.

The committee considered the scale and intensification of the proposals would have a harmful impact on the openness of the Green Belt and failed to meet the criteria in GB2 to allow permission to be granted.  This was due to the increase in facilities proposed levels of use which was not just to create facilities within the school boundary which pupils have at present to go off site for, but to attract other schools and clubs etc to use this Green Belt site.

Additionally the committee considered the extent and duration of floodlighting, noise from spectators and vehicle movements to be harmful to the amenity of neighbouring residents. These concerns applied to the upgrading of the existing hockey pitch which had been restricted by conditions to 99/78056 (9-6pm, no Sunday use and no lighting) which the applicant now asked to be removed.
