Ecological Notes for Planning Committee Meeting 19/3/13

A.            New Applications

13/00425 –BlacknestPark – Ecology Report

The Phase 1 habitat survey submitted to date is insufficient. The Phase 1 habitat survey states itself on page 1 that it does ‘not constitute a full survey for protected species to standard survey methodologies’, and therefore it is inadequate given the known presence of badgers (the survey report refers to active badger setts). A full survey for badgers needs to be submitted prior to the planning application being determined, in accordance with Natural England’s standing advice for badger protection (http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/Images/Badgers_tcm6-21692.pdf).

The following extract from Natural England’s standing advice provides advice on what a badger survey should include:

‘Surveys for badger setts can be undertaken at any time of year although the optimum time is during spring or early autumn/winter. If there are setts it should be assumed that they are active unless a survey shows that there are no signs of badger activity in the area (they may be regularly occupied main setts or irregularly occupied outlying setts). A survey should consist of looking for sett entrances, badger paths, latrines, badger hairs on fences, bushes etc, scratching posts and evidence of digging for food. Putting down sand at the entrance of setts or putting sticks in sett entrances can be useful methods of indicating whether a sett is active. Monitoring of all sett entrances should take place over an extended period and can only be used to indicate not determine badger use.(p.5 Standing Advice Species Sheet: Badgers, Natural England)

 

With respect to the mitigation required, the standing advice states the following:

  • ‘Impacts upon badgers or their setts should be avoided but where this is not possible, mitigation will be required. Please note that badger tunnels can extend to 20m from the entrance holes and are located between 0.2 and several metres deep, depending on the soil and topography. Excavation work and heavy machinery will be kept well away from where it could result in damage to the sett or disturbance to any badger occupying the sett;
  • The following mitigation should also be adhered to avoid impacts on badger setts:
    • Foraging areas for badgers should be maintained or new foraging areas created.
    • Access between setts and foraging/watering areas should be maintained or new ones created.
    • Development that isolates a badger territory by surrounding it with roads or housing should be avoided as this can often result in problems such as increased road traffic collisions and badger damage to gardens and houses.
    • If main setts need to be demolished, an artificial badger sett can be created as close to the original sett as possible, however this should only be considered as an option as a last resort as natural setts are usually favoured over artificial ones.
    • Care needs to be taken when drawing up a mitigation strategy to ensure that habitat connectivity and any links to foraging habitats are maintained.

 

In preparing the full badger survey, heed should also be given to the following guidance:

‘Badgers and development: a guide to best practice and licensing’, Natural England, Interim Guidance Document, revised 12/11.

 

13/99508 – Hunters Lodge / 1 & 2 Ascot Lodge – Now withdrawn

It is considered that an insufficient ecological assessment has been undertaken in support of this planning application. The reasons for this statement are considered in two parts.

 

A. Bats

The only form of ecological report submitted in support of this planning application is a scoping bat survey undertaken in August 2012. This scoping survey detected bat dropping in one of the lofts, though the species responsible for this is unknown. The fact that bat droppings were found indicates that bats have previously used this loft space.

The company Jacobs is the official advisor to the Council on biodiversity issues. As noted in a letter from Jacobs to the RBWM Council (in relation to the Westbrook planning application (11/00682/FULL)):

 

‘NaturalEnglandguidance states that there is not ‘a tightly defined period within which bats need to have used a structure beyond which it is no longer regarded as a bat roost. A structure can be regarded as a bat roost even if not knowingly occupied by bats for a year or two’. The building should therefore be classed as a bat roost, even if only a single bat is considered to have been present.’

 

The scoping bat survey for the Hunters Lodge planning application states the following: ‘Although evidence of small scale use in the past, no evidence of bats present could be found’. On this basis, the report, firstly, does not recommend a follow-up bat survey or, secondly, any mitigation measures for the planned destruction of this roost. However, as demonstrated by the extract from Jacobs’ letter, the loft space needs to be considered as a bat roost and further survey work (in the form of an activity survey) should be undertaken. Appropriate mitigation measures then need to be developed based on the survey outcomes.

A data search provided by Thames Valley Environmental Records Centre (TVERC) demonstrates that bats have been reported near to the site (Brown Long-Eared & Pipistrelle). In addition, the tree reports supporting the planning application indicates there are 73 trees on-site. Any trees that are to be affected by the proposed development should be surveyed for the potential presence of bat roosts.

Based on Natural England standing advice for bats and knowledge of bats in this vicinity, the following additional bat survey work is considered necessary before this planning application can be determined:

  1. 1.       A bat activity survey encompassing the existing buildings and trees;
  2. 2.       A survey of the trees that are earmarked for removal to identify the likelihood of bat roosts;
  3. 3.       Based on the results from 1) and 2), together with the scoping bat survey results, appropriate mitigation measures need to be proposed and considered.

B. A biodiversity survey

In accordance with RBWM’s pre-application guidelines, a wider biodiversity survey needs to be undertaken for this proposed development as the site is within 200m of a stream.

In addition, a data search provided by Thames Valley Environmental Records Centre (TVERC) demonstrates that, in addition to bats, the following protected species have been recorded within 200m of the site:

  • Stag beetle
  • Common lizard

Based on RBWM’s guidelines and records of protected species close to the site, a biodiversity survey needs to be completed before this planning application can be determined.

I request that RBWM’s ecological advisor, Jacobs, be asked to provide their assessment of this application.

13/00589 – 17 Holmes Close (Works to trees covered by TPO)

Recommendation:  Refer to Borough’s Tree Officer

 

13/00594 – Bellocchio House

Note that photos in Tree Survey report show that a number of trees had been felled prior to the tree survey (there were a number of stumps evident), and the garden had been stripped of all vegetation away from the boundary. 22 trees remaining on site, no TPOs.  5 further trees due for removal. Emphasise the need to check for birds nests & roosting bats.

13/00607 – 3 Spinney Close (Works to trees covered by TPO)

Recommendation:  In accordance with best practice guidance issued by the Bat Conservation Trust on bat surveys , trees scheduled for arboricultural work should be assessed for the presence of bats and for their potential to support bat roosts. Information supplied by applicant mentions the following points:

  • A stream runs along the western boundary (by T13 & T12)
  • The area around T10-T15 is heavily wooded
  • T11, T12 & T13 show signs of decay and rot-pockets.

It is considered that the T11-T13 trees could (from the information provided) exhibit a significant potential for bat roosts. In accordance with best practice (as advocated by Natural England), a bat survey of the trees should be undertaken prior to permission for this work being granted.

13/00644 – Orchard House

The house is to be significantly altered, including the removal of the roof void. The site is within 30m of a stream and right next to a woodland. The details provided of the current build are brief but the drawings indicate that there may be areas of weather-boarding that are to be removed.

The age of the property is not known.

The Association of Local Government Ecologists in their ‘Validation of Planning Applications’ guidance document (as prepared in collaboration with Defra and Natural England), recommend that bat surveys will be required for the following types of development:

            ‘Proposed development which includes the modification conversion, demolition or removal of buildings and structures (especially roof voids) involving the following:

 

  • all buildings with weather boarding and/or hanging tiles that are within 200m of woodland and/or water;
  • pre-1960 detached buildings and structures within 200m of woodland and/or water.

 

Therefore, if the building is pre-1960s or has any areas of weather-boarding, a bat survey should be undertaken.

Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered that the restriction of retail (A1) should apply and that Condition 4 relating to the previous application 12/02359, should continue so that the scheme did not harm the viability of Ascot High Street (policy ASC1 and S1).

  ——————————————–

Councillor Barbara Hilton, Chairman

 

Ecological Appendix for Planning Committee Meeting  26/02/2013
A.            New Applications

13/00157 – The Belfry (Works to trees covered by TPO)

Recommendation:  Refer to Borough’s Tree Officer

13/00186 – 33 Hurstwood (Works to trees covered in Conservation Area)

Recommendation:  Refer to Borough’s Tree Officer. Require replanting if permission is given.

13/00274 – Lynton Lodge

A pre-1960s house will be demolished. According to RBWM’s guidelines, a biodiversity survey is therefore required, but none has been submitted. 1 dwelling is to be replaced by 3: BBOWT object as there has been no mention on the potential impact on the Thames Basin SPA or mitigation measures (w.r.t. SANG and SAMM). Natural England have not objected as they have assumed the development is meeting the RBWM Avoidance & Mitigation Strategy.

Recommendations:  

  • ·         A biodiversity survey should be undertaken as, under RBWM’s guidelines, this is required where an application involves the demolition of a detached dwelling built prior to 1960;
  • ·         A bat survey should also be undertaken. It is considered that there is a reasonable likelihood of bats being found on the site, as determined using the Validation Triggerlist (produced by the Association of Local Government Ecologists). This identifies pre-1960 detached buildings within 200m of woodland as a sensitive location. There are numerous trees in the area, particularly immediately to the east of the site on the neighbouring property.
  • ·         Information on mitigation measures relating to potential impact on the Thames Basin SPA should be given (w.r.t. SANG/SAMM).

13/00275 – 51 Hurstwood (Works to trees covered by TPO)

Recommendation:  Refer to Borough’s Tree Officer

13/00276 – 49 Hurstwood (Works to trees covered by TPO)

Recommendation:  Refer to Borough’s Tree Officer

13/00300 – Dial House, Kings Road

A walk-over site survey has been conducted and evidence of brown long-eared bats in the roof space was found.  The report states that: ‘The number of droppings recorded would indicate bats (and possibly an individual bat) may use the building on an occasional basis and that it is not an important established roost (such as a maternity roost). However, this would need to be confirmed with further survey work at an appropriate time of year.’

Given the age and location of the property and evidence of use of the site by bats in the initial survey, best practice guidelines recommend that a further bat survey is undertaken at an appropriate time of year in the form of an emergence and/or re-entry survey. This will need to be undertaken before planning permission is given.

 Recommendations:

  • ·         Undertake a further bat survey at an appropriate time of year in the form of an emergence and/or re-entry survey.

Recommendations arising from the initial and further surveys will need to form part of planning conditions for the site should planning permission be granted. The recommendations from the initial report are as follows:

  • ·         ’Install a series of bat boxes on suitable mature trees to be retained and/or bat tubes incorporated into the new build, all of which should be positioned in accordance with best practice;
  • ·         Where new planting is scheduled then species of value to bats should be used;
  • ·         The retention of the established boundary vegetation will maintain any foraging habitat currently utilised by bats;
  • ·         As the site is in an area of low density housing, any new lighting required should be designed to minimise light spillage and pollution and not directed onto any bat boxes/tubes installed;
  • ·         In order to protect the established vegetation to be retained, suitable fencing may be required at certain locations to reduce the possibility of any damage that could be caused during the works. To minimise accidental damage, any overhanging branches should be pruned back to suitable live growth points. All works should be undertaken by a suitably qualified and experienced specialist contractor and should conform to current industry best practice i.e. BS 3998: 1989 ‘Recommendations for Tree Work’.
  • ·         It should be noted that all species of wild bird and their nests are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, 1981, therefore in order to avoid contravention of current legislation any site works likely to affect potential bird nesting habitat should be timed to avoid the main bird nesting season which in general runs from March to August. If this is not possible, a check should be carried out prior to works to ensure there are no active nests present.
  • ·         A series of bird boxes could be installed on some of the established vegetation to be retained or incorporated into the new build to provide enhanced.’

13/00339 – Waterside, 4 Keir Park

 

This application is incomplete as it does not contain a consideration of the impact that the proposed works may have on the biodiversity of the area. The site is located very close to a medium-sized pond. As such, the site falls under two categories for which protected species surveys are required, as detailed by the Association of Local Government Ecologists’ guidance (refer to the ‘Validation of Planning Applications’ document).  

Category: Minor proposals within 100m of a pond

Requirement for Protected Species Survey: Required for Great Crested Newt

 

Category: Proposals affecting or within 200m of rivers, streams, canals, lakes, or other aquatic

habitats

Requirement for Protected Species Survey: Various surveys required including that for bats, breeding birds and amphibians

 Before any planning permission is given, the various protected species surveys should be undertaken.

 

13/00393 – St Clouds and Glebelands

 

As outlined by Jacobs, the initial bat inspection survey was undertaken outside the optimum time of year. Although the results showed no presence of bats, given the characteristics and location of the buildings to be demolished, following best practice would entail undertaking a further bat survey covering evening emergence and/or dawn re-entry surveys before any planning permission is given.

 

In accordance with RBWM guidelines, a wider biodiversity survey should be undertaken as the development site is within 200m of a stream (as located within the adjoining Local Wildlife Site). The bat survey undertaken (included within the previous application 12/02992)makes a brief reference to other species, and states that any investigation into the presence of amphibians and reptiles, for example, is not required as there is no watercourse present. This statement is incorrect – there is a watercourse nearby within the adjacent woodland. The brief reference to species other than bats within the bat survey submitted does not constitute a biodiversity survey.

 Recommendations:

 Before any planning permission is given, the following actions should be completed:

  •  ·         Undertake a further bat survey at an appropriate time of year covering evening emergence and/or dawn re-entry activity, in line with best practice guidelines.
  • ·         Undertake a wider biodiversity survey as, under RBWM’s guidelines, this is required where an application involves development within 200m of a stream.

5217 OTHER BUSINESS
Councillor Peter Deason raised concerns about the advertising hoarding by the Beechcroft development in Sunninghill, the dual use as a delivery centre by the One Stop Shop in Sunninghill and the size of the lottery advertisement within the shop’s window.  The Chairman said that she would look into these concerns.

Councillor Christine Lester raised concerns about the number of additional houses being built in the Parish.  Councillor David Hilton informed the committee that the Neighbourhood Plan, once approved and taken into account as material consideration, could affect this.  Councillor Peter Deason informed the committee that the next meeting of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group would decide on the way forward.

The Chairman provided feedback from a meeting held with the Borough regarding the draft legal delegation agreement as to planning functions.  She identified the advantages and issues involved which were discussed by members in full.  Councillor Jeffrey Yong raised concerns about the administrative and possible financial implications to the Parish Council.  Councillor Margaret Duffield suggested that the members took up the Borough’s offer of training before taking on any further responsibilities.  Councillor David Hilton proposed that the Parish Council undertook this training, developed closer working relationship with the Borough Planners and then re-considered the legal agreement once the Neighbourhood Plan and associated changes in planning policy came into affect.  Therefore it was agreed that the committee recommend to full Council that the Parish Council does not enter into the draft legal delegation agreement at this stage; and revisits this decision in 18 months time.

There being no further business, the Chairman closed the meeting at 8.05pm.

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/03466 (Full) Fairacre, Ravensdale Road, Ascot, SL5 9HJErection of 4 dwellings with access from Ravesndale Road, following demolition of the existing building

Recommendation: Objections due to the height, mass, scale and bulk of the proposal.  The sizes of the dwellings were considered to be contrary to the Townscape Assessment which defines the area as being one of ‘villas in a woodland setting.’ The potential loss of trees and the adverse affect on the tree root protection zone was also noted as a cause for objection, as were a range of ecological concerns which are attached as an appendix. The committee noted that the Tree Officer has recommended refusal of the application. The committee also supported the Borough Highway Officer’s proposed conditions, particularly regarding visitor parking, as well as the resident’s concerns about access over a ‘ransom’ strip of land.

12/03471 (Full) Four Seasons, Bagshot Road, Ascot, SL5 9JLConstruction of a five dwelling apartment building with associated garaging parking amenities following demolition of existing dwelling

Recommendation: Objections to the intensification of use within the site which were considered contrary to policy H11.  The introduction of apartments was considered to adversely affect the street scene, in a ‘non flatted’ area.  The lack of an ecological report was also noted.

12/03484 (Full) 7 Silwood Close, Ascot, SL5 7DXConstruction of a replacement detached house (amendment to planning permission 10/01838)

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/03514 (Full) Oakwood Lodge, Bagshot Road, Ascot, SL5 9JPConstruction of a detached dwelling and detached 4 bay garage with accommodation over including front entrance gates, following demolition of existing

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/03528 (Full) 3 Vicarage Gardens, Ascot, SL5 9DXSingle storey rear extension

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/03534 (Full) The Marist Schools, Kings Road, Sunninghill, Ascot, SL5 7PSConstruction of a sports hall with ancillary accommodation

Recommendation: Objections.  The committee reiterated their original objections to application 12/02235, adding that the potential loss of 32 trees was contrary to Policy N6 and DG6, with the proposed fencing considered inadequate. The case for accepting ‘special circumstances’ for development within the Green Belt was considered to be a Borough matter but the committee raised objections to the intensification of use within the site and the increase in traffic that would be generated.  It was also noted that the revised application was for a larger building (which would run over existing sewers) which was considered to be contrary to Policy GB1 and GB2.  

The increase in traffic generated was considered unneighbourly to residents in Highclere.

The original grounds for objection were as follows:

The committee considered the proposal to be contrary to policy GB2 as it was an intensification of use within the Green Belt.  Furthermore, the height and scale of the building, potential light pollution, tree loss and traffic movement would adversely affect neighbourhood amenity.  If the Borough were minded to approve the application, the committee requested that conditions be imposed for the whole site regarding opening times, screening and floodlight usage outside of school hours.

  

 

 
12/03542 (Full)  St Catherines Lodge, St Marys Road, Ascot SL5 9AYDemolition of existing dwelling to allow the erection of 2 detached dwellings

Recommendation: Objections due to the overdevelopment of the site which was considered to be contrary to the NPPF.  The committee considered that the proposed layout would result in the front dwelling adversely impacting on the amenity of the second dwelling.  Concerns were raised as to the potential tree loss, the adverse affect on the tree root protection zone and were supportive of the ecological conditions proposed should the Borough be minded to approve the application.

13/00033 (Full) Mare’s Nest, 91 Cheapside Road, Ascot, SL5 7QGTwo storey side extension, first floor rear extension and a replacement conservatory

Recommendation: No Objections, subject to Green Belt Requirements being met.

Councillor Barbara Hilton, Chairman of the Planning Committee

 

 

Ecological Appendix for Planning Committee Meeting 15/1/13

A.            New Planning Applications

12/003385 (Works to trees covered by TPO) – Application states ‘This tree appears to be low in vitality with numerous dead and dying branches. Low amenity value tree.’

However, under additional information section, the applicant states that the reason for carrying out the proposed works is not the condition of the tree (ticked the ‘no’ box).

The initial statement, however, suggests this is the supposed reason, and so the necessary evidence to support the proposals is required.

Summary:  There is a lack of evidence to support the justification for felling the tree and there is no information on replanting (or a justification for not replanting).

12/03430 (Works to trees covered by TPO) – Reason for felling T2 is ‘to encourage more light’: this justification appears weak and there is no information on replanting (or justification for not replanting).

Summary:  The justification for felling the T2 tree is inadequate and there is no information on replanting (or a justification for not replanting).

12/03466 – Fairacre development

If the application is granted, there are a number of conditions relating to the bio-diversity of the site that should be imposed. These requirements have been extracted from the ecology report (by Aspect Ecology) that accompanies the application:

Provisions relating to bats:

  • ·         Provision of replacement bat roosts (in bat boxes on retained trees along site boundary)  prior to demolition of building;
  • ·         Undertake ‘update’ survey work prior to demolition, partly to determine any changes in use to inform any European Protected Species licence application as may be required for Natural England;
  • ·         Demolition of suitable structures that could conceal bats to be undertaken outside the summer breeding season or winter hibernation periods;
  • ·         Contractors to be informed on what to do if bats are encountered during works – i.e. stop work and contact Natural England;
  • ·         Ensure new lighting is directed away from bat boxes and potential foraging area at site boundary. Maintain dark corridors between new roosts and offsite habitats.

Provisions relating to birds:

  • ·         To avoid a potential offence under the Wildlife & Countryside Act, either undertake vegetation clearance outside bird nesting period (March – August) or have the vegetation checked for nests by an ecologist before it is removed. Any nests identified need to be cordoned off and protected until the end of the nesting season or until birds have fledged.
  • ·         Install a variety of bird boxes, including ones for declining species e.g. House Sparrow (UK BAP species) and House Martin.

New planting:

  • ·         Where developers are undertaking new planting, include a range of native species where possible.

12/03471 – House to be demolished. There is no ecology report provided, and therefore it is considered that insufficient information on the bio-diversity of the site has been submitted for consideration.

12/03484 – House (in green belt) to be demolished. There is no ecology report provided, and therefore it is considered that insufficient information on the bio-diversity of the site has been submitted for consideration.

12/03514 – House to be demolished. There is no ecology report provided, and therefore it is considered that insufficient information on the bio-diversity of the site has been submitted.

12/03542 – If the application is granted, there are a number of conditions relating to the bio-diversity of the site that should be imposed. These requirements have been extracted from the ecology report (by AA Environment) that accompanies the application:

Provisions relating to bats:

  • ·         Further survey work should be undertaken at an appropriate time of year to supplement existing information on potential bat roosts and to determine whether a European Protected Species licence application is required. If it is, a detailed Method Statement including precautionary measures would need to be produced and followed.
  • ·         Install a series of bat boxes on suitable mature trees to be retained and/or bat tubes incorporated into the new build (positioned in accordance with best practice);
  • ·         Where new planting is scheduled, plant species of value to bats (as detailed in the original report);
  • ·         Retain established boundary vegetation which may currently be used as a foraging habitat;
  • ·         Any new lighting should be designed to minimise light spillage and not be directed onto any bat boxes/tubes installed.
  • ·         Install bat boxes before any demolition work commences;

Provisions relating to birds:

  • ·         To avoid a potential offence under the Wildlife & Countryside Act, either undertake vegetation clearance outside bird nesting period (March – August) or have the vegetation checked for nests by an ecologist before it is removed. Any nests identified need to be cordoned off and protected until the end of the nesting season or until birds have fledged.
  • ·         Install a variety of bird boxes, either in established vegetation or incorporated into new build.

Planning Application 12/03365 Bar Billiards Ltd. Heath Works,  Winkfield Rd. Ascot SL5 7EX

 

 

Dear Ms Gibson

 

These are the collective comments from the Parish Council Planning Committee, which does not meet officially until 15th January.

 

The Parish Council objects to this application for the following reasons.

 

1 Although the development meets RBWM parking standards, there is insufficient parking on site to meet the needs of visitors and delivery vehicles and has a potential for emergency vehicles to be obstructed due to the lack of space.

 

2 The situation of the bin store and the vehicular movement of all traffic to the rear properties will cause nuisance to the occupiers of Heath House

 

3We are concerned that the Design & Access statement makes no mention of Oakdene, a semi detached Victorian cottage on the north side of the application site, the impact of which will be greater than that of 2 Durning Place. The flank wall of plot 3 will be at it’s closest point approximately 2 metres from Oakdene and at a height of 9.25 metres will cut out all sunlight from the small amenity space and kitchen at the side of Oakdene. There is also a study window at second floor level in plot 1   which faces directly into the bedroom of Oakdene. This will also cause an unacceptable loss of privacy to Oakdene and is unneighbourly in concept.

 

4 The Parish Council is not opposed to the development of this site but considers this application of 3 properties to be a cramped and unneighbourly.

 

 

Cllr. Barbara Hilton
Chair Planning Committee

32 Llanvair Drive, Ascot, SL5 9HT

No Recommendation Required. The planning officers decision was noted.
12/03278 (Full) Birnam, Monks Walk, Ascot, SL5 9AZ
Two storey rear extension and minor fenestration changes to the existing rear elevation
Recommendation: Objections.  The proposal was considered to be overdevelopment due to the size and positioning of the extension and to be out of keeping with the street scene.  The use of dormer windows at first floor level was considered to be harmful to the neighbourhood amenity as they would overlook adjacent plots.  The committee requested that the application be referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer due to the potential loss of trees and the concern about their root protection zone.  They also requested that the length and angle of the extension be checked as to whether or not it infringed design guidelines.      
12/03283 (Full) Recycle, recycle Ltd, Oakfield Farm, Wells Lane, Ascot, SL5 7DY
Retention of acoustic enclosure surrounding waste sorting area (retrospective)
Recommendation: The committee supports the Ward Councillors report and actions regarding this application .

Recommendation: No Objections, although the committee requested that the application be referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer to ensure that the proposed re-siting would not be detrimental to the tree root protection zone.
12/02827 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) 2 Geffers Ride, Ascot, SL5 7JY
T1 Oak tree in front garden, crown reduce lateral branches by 2m. T5 Beech in rear garden, crown thin by 10%, crown clear and deadwood.  T14 oak tree in rear garden, remove over extended dead scaffold on south side at 2.5m
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.
12/02854 (Full) Woodlands Lodge and Boxwood House, Heathfield Avenue, Ascot
Erection of 10 apartments plus basement parking, access and landscaping following demolition of existing dwellings
Recommendation: Objections. The committee considered the application to be out of keeping with the area, which was characterized by detached homes, and therefore contrary to the Townscape Assessment; as well as being damaging to the street scene.  The scale, massing and density proposed were considered to be an over-development of the site, contrary to policy H11, with the proportions being contrary to policy H10. Furthermore, the application was considered to be unsustainable in economic, social and environmental respects and therefore contrary to NPPF 7. The parking arrangements, with no visitor parking, and access for service vehicles were considered to be inadequate, with possible highway implications.  In addition, the committee considered the application to be contrary to NPPF 9 and 17, in that it did not meet local housing needs, did not reflect the character of the area, did not use land of lesser environmental value and was not located to make fullest possible use of public transport. The committee noted that an archaeological report was outstanding and therefore requested that the determination date only be set once this, and community consultation, had been carried out.  The committee also noted that the area was not one identified as being appropriate for apartments within the emerging Neighbourhood Plan.

Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.
12/02918 (Full) Courtway, Titness Park, London Road, Sunninghill, Ascot, SL5 0PS
Rear dormer extension. Rear extension to existing detached garage with new roof
Recommendation: No Objections, subject to Green Belt Requirements being met.
12/02939 (Full) 51 Lower Village Road, Ascot, SL5 7AF

Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02966 (Full) 21 Course Road, Ascot, SL5 7HQ
Part two part single storey side and rear extension and porch.  Loft conversion with 2 front and a rear dormer
Recommendation: Objections. The committee considered the application to be an overdevelopment of the site which was out of keeping with the character of the area.  The proposed dormers would create a two and a half storey dwelling which would be harmful to the street scene along a stretch of road containing two storey dwellings.  Concerns were also raised about the removal of the adjacent right of way without prior consultation with neighbours.

5125  NEW APPLICATIONS                                                                                                                                          

Application No.
Location and Description
12/02511 (Full) Hunters Lodge and 1 and 2 Ascot Lodge, London Road, Ascot
Construction of 10 dwellings (comprising 3 detached, 2 semi detached, and a terrace of 3 dwellings), following demolition of existing 3 properties
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee welcomed three residents from Wellswood who raised objections to the application.  These objections coincided with those raised by the SPAE representative.  Although the committee recognised that attempts had been made to reduce the impact on neighbouring properties, this had resulted in ‘front loading’ the development which had resulted in an ‘urbanising’ effect.  The resultant overdevelopment of the site was therefore contrary to the Townscape Assessment (which defined the area as one of ‘villas in a woodland setting’) and thus out of keeping with the character of the area. In addition, the loss of 6 category B trees was considered to be damaging to the street scene, further exacerbated by the proposed access road, which was considered to be inadequate for service vehicles.  Combined with the proposed parking arrangements, the committee raised concerns about highway safety implications and considered the proposal to be contrary to the NPPF.  The degree of sustainability was also questioned, as was the consideration of affordable housing on site. Furthermore, the potential loss of privacy and light for neighbouring properties, due to the proximity and design of the proposed plots, was considered harmful to neighbourhood amenity; as was the view from the south east of the site. Lastly, the committee were concerned that if this application were approved it would set an unwelcome precedent and did not mirror that of Wellswood.
12/02570 (Certificate of lawfulness) Mare’s Nest, 91 Cheapside Road Ascot SL5 7QG

Certificate of lawfulness to determine whether a proposed two storey and first floor rear

extension and a single storey side extension are lawful

No Recommendation Required: The committee questioned whether planning permission should be sought for such an extensive proposal.
   
12/02602 (Full) Woodleigh, Watersplash Lane, Ascot, SL5 7QP
Single storey timber outbuilding to replace existing shed
Recommendation: No Objections, subject to Green Belt requirements being met.
12/02617 (Full) 61 Victoria Road, Ascot, SL5 9DE
Rear conservatory
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02637 (Full) Four Seasons, Bagshot Road, Ascot, SL5 9JL
Construction of replacement dwelling

12/02653 (Full) 21 Sutherland Chase, Ascot SL5 8TE

Construction of a replacement house

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/02658 (Full) 8 Onslow Drive, Ascot, SL5 7UL
Two storey front extension.  Two front dormers and roof amendments to facilitate loft conversion
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02662 (Full) 12 Lockton Chase, Ascot, SL5 8TP
Two storey side extension and open front porch with pitched roof
Recommendation: Objections.  The garage proposed at 2.5m wide is below the Borough’s width standard and would result in a loss of a parking space.  The committee also sought re-assurance that there would be no breach of the 45 degree rule.
12/02665 (Full) 2 Carden Mews, Kennel Ride, Ascot, SL5 7PJ
Conversion of garage into habitable accommodation
Recommendation: No Objections, subject to a condition that adequate sound insulation be included in the conversion so that the current use of the adjacent garage could continue.
12/02678 (Full) 48 Highgrove Avenue, Ascot, SL5 7HR
Two storey side extension.  Existing rear conservatory changed to form an orangery
Recommendation: No Objections as the committee considered this to be a duplicate of an approved application (12/02158), as it failed to make clear the differences.
12/02702 (Full) 59 Hurstwood, Ascot, SL5 9SP
First floor side and single storey rear and side extensions
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02722 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) Wells House, Wells Lane, Ascot, SL5 7DY
Trim back and shape branches overhanging Bluebell Wood up to a height of 2m on Leylandii trees at Wells House
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.
12/02758 (Full) 9 St Georges Lane, Ascot, SL5 9BL
Single storey rear extension
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02768 (Full) Fircroft, 13 Woodlands Ride, Ascot, SL5 9HP
Two storey front bay extension. New front porch. Single storey rear extension.  Alterations to main roof to infill.  Pitched roofs over existing front bay windows.  Two front entrance gates.

Consent to display one non illuminated fascia sign, one internally illuminated TSB sign over fascia, one internally illuminated projecting sign, one non illuminated vinyl over ATM, one non illuminated door mounted name plate and one non illuminated internally applied window vinyl
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02787 (Full) Land at Windrush, Hancocks Mount, Ascot, SL5 9PQ
Relocation of garage, including first floor accommodation over with external staircase. Alterations to boundary treatment and position
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02790 (Full) Land at Windrush, Hancocks Mount, Ascot, SL5 9PQ
Construction of a detached dwelling with integral double garage, with accommodation over and new entrance gates, following demolition of existing
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02791 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) Apartment 11, Brockenhurst House, Brockenhurst Road, Ascot, SL5 9FW
Fell a Horse Chestnut (1) Remove deadwood from 2 Conifers (2+3) Prune back 4 Conifers (4A-D) to within 0.5 metres of boundary fence.  Raise crown of an unidentified tree (5) 8-10 metres and reduce overall by 30%.  Remove deadwood from an Oak tree (6)
Recommendation: Strong Objections.  The committee expressed concern that an increasing number of applications to fell protected trees were being received following the building of new developments close to trees , rather than for sound arboricultural reasons.  The original application for Apartment 11 had been approved subject to no tree loss.  The committee asked that the application be referred to the Borough’s tree officer and that it be called into the Development Control Panel, should the Borough be minded to approve it.
12/02796 (Full) 34 Llanvair Drive, Ascot, SL5 9HT
Two storey part single storey side extension and conversion of existing room into garage
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02810 (Full) 17 Dorian Drive, Ascot, SL5 7QL
Single storey part two storey side extension
Recommendation: Objections on the grounds of loss of parking space due to the unique position of this property within the street. The committee requested that the Borough obtain a parking plan for the application, prior to determination, and that this plan be made available on the planning portal website.
12/02814 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) The Laurels, 9 Holmes Close, Ascot, SL5 9TJ
Crown reduce a Sweet Chestnut (T1) by 25%
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.

 5086  PLANNING APPLICATIONS

 

Application No.
Location and Description
12/01732 (Amendment)
Ascot Corner, Wells Lane, SL5 7DY

Construction of 12 flats, with basement parking and cycle store, detached refuse store, new entrance gates, landscaping and additional parking, following demolition of existing dwelling
Recommendation
: Objections.  The committee considered the reasons for refusing the original application still applied, as set out in the attached statement below.  Furthermore, the proposal was not considered to be sustainable and therefore the presumption in favour of development should not apply.  Concern about the impact on the tree root protection zone and the tree canopy were also expressed.

12/02212 (Full) Little Queens Beeches, London Road, Ascot, SL5 7EQ
Single storey rear/side extension, additional parking area and rear terrace
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02235 (Full) The Marist Schools, Kings Road, Sunninghill, Ascot, SL5 7PS
Construction of a sports hall with ancillary accommodation
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered the proposal to be contrary to policy GB2 as it was an intensification of use within the Green Belt.  Furthermore, the height and scale of the building, potential light pollution, tree loss and traffic movement would adversely affect neighbourhood amenity.  If the Borough were minded to approve the application, the committee requested that conditions be imposed for the whole site regarding opening times, screening and floodlight usage outside of school hours.
12/02256 (Full) 7 Hurstwood, Ascot, SL5 9SP
Two storey side extension following demolition of existing family room
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02274 (Full) 59 Gainsborough Drive, Ascot, SL5 8TA
Two storey, part first floor front extension
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered the proposal to be contrary to policy H14 as it was damaging to the street scene.  The properties within this stretch of Gainsborough Drive were built with symmetrical sloping roofs which have not been altered. This application would result in cutting into the roof which would set an unwelcome precedent.  The proximity of the two storey extension was considered to be too close to the boundary, at less than 1metre, and would create a terracing effect.  Furthermore, the loss of light would be unneighbourly and the proposed guttering could be contrary to building regulations.  The committee requested that the application be bought to the Development Control Panel, should the Borough be minded to approve it.
12/02280 (Full) Chesham House, Coronation Road, Ascot, SL5 9LG
Erection of two dwellings and provision of a new access to Coronation Road, following demolition of the existing dwelling
Recommendation: Objections.  The proposal was considered to be ‘backland’ development and of a significantly greater scale than the neighbouring properties development.  Concerns were also expressed regarding the tree root protection zone, the impact on the street scene, as the entire footprint would be moved forward, and that the proposed drive would cause inconvenience to the neighbours.   The committee requested that the application be bought to the Development Control Panel, should the Borough be minded to approve it.
12/02288 (Advertisement) Chartered Institute of Building Offices, Englemere House, Englemere Estate, Kings Ride, Ascot, SL5 7TB
Consent to replace entrance signs with 2x non illuminated 3-sided triangular signs
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02304 (Full) Hazeldene, St Marys Hill, Ascot, SL5 9AP
Front porch extension.  Convert existing conservatory into a garden room, with new tiled roof, side wall, windows and doors
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02309 (Certificate of Lawfulness) 11 The Poplars, Ascot, SL5 9HZ
Certificate of lawfulness to determine whether a proposed single storey side extension is lawful.
No Recommendation Required.
12/02321 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) Ladye Place, London Road, Ascot, SL5 7EG
T1 Common Lime tree, reduce by 30% and reshape
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.
12/02334 (Full) 34 Armitage Court, Ascot, SL5 9TA
Single storey front extensions, conversion of part garage and erection of new garden wall following demolition of existing
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02354 (Certificate of Lawfulness) Blanton House, Kennel Avenue, Ascot, SL5 7PB
Certificate of Lawfulness of proposed development to determine whether a proposed roof replacement with lanterns is lawful
No Recommendation Required.
12/02355 (Full) Bramley Cottage, Burleigh Road, Ascot, SL5 7LE
Construction of a detached house with second floor accommodation and a detached double garage with first floor storage over, following the demolition of the existing house and garage.  New entrance gate and walls
Recommendation: Objections.  The garage was considered to be too high and wrongly located.  The proposed  garage would adversely affect the street scene, as would the white rendered perimeter wall, and was too close to the tree canopy.
12/02359 (Full) Wine Rack, 55 High Street, Ascot, SL5 7HP
Change of use from Wine Shop (A1) to Wine/Cocktail bar (A4), including new shop front.
Recommendation: No Objections, subject to a specific floor area being set aside for retail use.
12/02392 (Full) Halstead House, Upper Village Road, Ascot, SL5 7AG
2x 4 bed dwellings with associated landscaping and car parking
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered that the same grounds for objection to application 12/01441 still existed as the changes contained were not significant.  The proposal therefore still considered to be an overdevelopment of the site and would thus have an adverse affect on the street scene.  Plot 2 was considered to be too close to 2 Lower Village Road and Plot 1 could possibly overlook 22 Oriental Road and would therefore be unneighbourly.  Furthermore, concerns about the impact on the tree root protection zone of plot 2 and tree canopy were raised.

5091  OTHER BUSINESS
The proposed LapLand UK application in  Swinley Forest was discussed. The extended consultation period was noted and Parish Councillors were asked to inform residents of this.

Councillor Peter Deason expressed concern about the Government’s proposed relaxation of planning conditions relating to household and retail permissions, which he considered to be contrary to the Localism agenda.  Councillor David Hilton agreed to write to the Member of Parliament for Windsor raising these concerns, which were shared by the Committee.

 There being no further business, the Chairman closed the meeting at 8.30pm

 ———————————————

Councillor Barbara Hilton, Chairman

 Attached Statement regarding 12/01732 – Ascot Corner, Wells Lane, Ascot

 

12/01732 (Full) Ascot Corner, Wells Lane, Ascot, SL5 7DY

Construction of 12 flats, with basement parking and cycle store. Detached refuse store, new

entrance gates, landscaping and additional parking, following demolition of existing dwelling

Recommendation: Strong Objections

 The Parish Council objects to the above application on the following grounds:

 1. The development is not in harmony with the character of the local area as defined in the borough’s Townscape Character Assessment, contrary to policy 58 of the NPPF and to the communities’ strong desire to retain the local character and its concerns regarding the increasing density of developments.  The density of development, at 43 homes per hectare compared with the current figure of 3.5/hectare reinforces the view that the development is out of character and of too high a density for its location.

The development adversely affects the street scene, reduces the green and leafy appearance and introduces an urbanising appearance, contrary to the community wishes.

 2. Trees

  • The trees along the Wells Lane frontage will need to be replaced.
  • The ramp to the basement conflicts with the RPA of an important tree on the western side.
  • There is no tree survey and no tree protection measures are proposed.

 3. Sustainability

The location of the development is not considered sustainable, contrary to the requirements of the NPPF policies 17, 30, 35 and 37.  Section 6.9 of the Design and Access statement claims the development is in a sustainable location with easy access to local facilities and amenities, and 4.6 of the D&A statement states that in the design there is an emphasis on pedestrian, mobility impaired, cycle and public transport over car travel.

These statements are clearly not correct as the station is 1.5km away, the nearest bus stop is 1.1 km away, the nearest convenience store is 0.8 km away and the nearest primary school is 1.3 km away. The committee further noted that there are no footways in Wells Lane, and no footpath on the south side of the London road. The development is therefore not sustainable for vulnerable pedestrians.

 4. The Design is considered flawed in the following respects:

The development does not accommodate the efficient delivery of goods and supplies, contrary to NPPF policy 35, or provide efficient, easy to access on-site parking, for residents, visitors or services. In particular, the Basement Parking is not viable or efficient as 4 spaces are “blocked in” and the end space is very difficult to access (amended layout, Pg 25 of D&A statement)

 5. SPA constraints

The SPA is still constraining local housing numbers.

 

 

 

 

 

Planning Minutes – Tuesday 31st July 2012

Minutes of a meeting of the Planning Committee held at the Ascot Day Centre, Bagshot Road, Sunninghill on
Tuesday 31 July 2012 commencing at 7.00pm.

Members Present: Councillors B Hilton (Chairman), C Lester (Vice-Chairman), M Duffield, R Ellison, J Yong

In attendance: Elizabeth Yates, Clerk to the Council and Peter Standley (SPAE)

5037  TO NOTE APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE
Councillors Peter Deason, David Hilton and Daniel Whittall.

5038  MINUTES
The minutes of the meeting, held on 10 July, were approved as a correct record and signed as such.

5039  DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST
The Chairman asked to receive any Declarations of Interest in accordance with the adopted Code of Conduct. None were given.

 5040  PLANNING APPLICATIONS 

Application No.
Location and Description
12/01715 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) West Burnside, Burleigh Road, Ascot, SL5 7LE
Reduce up to 4 lateral branches of a tree by no more than 3m to allow clearance for a satellite dish signal
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered that there were no arboricultural reasons and this application should be rejected. Should the proposed Burnside development be approved it would seriously affect the amenity of immediate neighbours in Blythwood as their screening would be reduced.
12/01759 (Full) 85 Victoria Road, Ascot, SL5 9DR
Two storey part first floor rear extension
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/01880 (Full) Silverwood, Whynstones Road, Ascot, SL5 9HW
Construction of detached dwelling with integral double garage and rooms in the roof space, following demolition of existing.
Recommendation: No Objections, provided that the Borough’s Tree Officer ensured that the root protection zone of the trees would not be adversely affected as the proposal would result in a larger footprint.
12/01888 (Full) Wetherby and Queenswood, Burleigh Lane, Ascot
Construction of two detached houses with garages following demolition of existing dwellings
Recommendation: No Objections, provided that the conditions attached to the previous application, 11/02241, still applied.
12/01961 (Full) Derryville, Burleigh Lane, Ascot, SL5 8PF
Construction of a detached dwelling with integral triple garage with accommodation over, following demolition of existing
Recommendation: Objections. The committee considered the proposed dwelling to be excessive in bulk and scale.  Thus it would be damaging to the street scene and intrusive. As the proposal was a re-submission which moved the dwelling further toward a known badger set, the committee considered it essential that a report be obtained from the Borough’s retained ecological consultant.   If the Borough were minded to approve the application, the committee requested that it be called in to the Rural Development Control Panel.  
12/01965 (Full) Wine Rack, 55 High Street, Ascot, SL5 7HP
Change of use from Wine shop (A1) to Wine/ Cocktail bar (A4), including new shop front
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/01972 (Full) CBS Business Equipment Limited, CBS Court, 118 Kennel Ride, Ascot, SL5 7NP
Conversion of existing offices to provide 4 x 2 bed maisonettes and 4 x 1 bed flats; works to include alterations, partial demolition of single storey extension, two storey extension and associated landscaping and parking
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/01984 (Full) 22-24 Cromwell Road, Ascot
Construction of a one detached house with integral garage and a pair of semi-detached dwellings with associated off road parking, access and landscaping following demolition of existing dwellings
Recommendation: No Objections, although the committee requested that a demolition and construction statement be provided due to the nature of the road.
12/02000 (Full) 32 Llanvair Drive, Ascot, SL5 9HT
Alterations and extensions to include two storey side and single storey front side and rear extensions, raising of roof to provide loft accommodation with rear dormers and a side chimney
Recommendation: Concerns were expressed that the raising of the roof height by 1metre would affect the roof alignment of adjacent properties and therefore the symmetry of the street scene.  The committee requested that if the Borough were minded to approve the application, a condition be imposed that ensured the roof tiles harmonised with the adjacent properties in colour and material.
12/02002 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) Helford House, Hancocks Mount, Ascot, SL5 9PQ
T1 Sycamore, crown reduce by 10-15% and up to 1.5m to balance crown
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer, provided sound arboricultural reasons were given.
12/02010 (Full)

 

Four Seasons, Bagshot Road, Ascot, SL5 9JL
Construction of two detached dwellings, both with detached double garages, following demolition of existing
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered that the reasons for refusal at appeal of the previous application, 01/08354, still applied, particularly as the proposal was for higher houses which would be more intrusive.  The proposal was considered to be harmful to the street scene, neighbourhood amenity and would create a terracing affect.  Therefore it would be contrary to the Townscape Assessment which defined the area as one of ‘villas in a woodland setting’. 
12/02014 (Full) 131 New Road, Ascot, SL5 8QA
Single storey side and rear extension
Recommendation: No Objections.
 

5041  PLANNING APPEALS
11/01807 West Burnside and Burnside, Burleigh Road, Ascot
Construction of seven detached dwellings and a new access road.

The Planning Inspectorate has informed us that a date and venue has been confirmed for the appeal.  The Hearing will take place at 10.00am on 18 September at Desborough Suite, Town Hall, Maidenhead.
