Minutes (Agenda item 1)

52/19a

15 March 2019 (for info)

To note:

 

Confirmed Minutes of the Planning Committee meeting held on 15 March 2019.

 

Mr Tim Betts from Great Ellingham Parish Council submitted comments following the publication of the Minutes that had been approved by the Planning Committee on 8 April 2019. 

 

On page 48/52 of the agenda pack,  the Parish Council raised concern about the effect the Link Road could have upon Wroo Road; Long Street, Chequers Lane and the ‘infamous’ staggered junction next to the Great Ellingham village school, with which Members were very familiar. Despite this representation, Transport Planning Associates either ignored it or were not asked to consider it in their various transport assessments. There was a grave danger that drivers, heading toward Dereham; Watton; Fakenham; Swaffham; etc., would choose to take the shorter route through Great Ellingham via Wroo Road; Long Street & Chequers Lane, rather than the more appropriate A11/B1077 route. This issue pertains to all vehicles but especially to HGVs.  No manner of signage to prevent this would work as this had already been proved, as the village often have HGVs ploughing along this route despite a 7.5Tonne restriction being in place. A physical prevention method must be used. Mr Betts asked the Committee to instruct officers to engage with NCC Highways to identify measures that would prevent any ‘through traffic’ from taking the Wroo Road; Long Street; Chequers Lane route.

 

NB: These amendments were approved at the Full Council meeting on 16 May 2019.

 

 

Minutes:

Members were in agreement with the changes made (see agenda pack).

58/19

Local Plan Update (Standing Item) (Agenda item 7)

To receive an update. 

Minutes:

Simon Wood, the Director of Planning & Building Control provided the Committee with an update on the Local Plan.

 

A briefing note had already been emailed to all Members for information.

 

The Planning Inspector had instructed the Council to hold a further 6 week consultation exercise, focusing purely on the Schedule of Main Modifications. 

 

Work was already underway to ensure that the consultation period started w/c 27 May with a view to it ending w/c 8 July 2019.

 

The reason for this additional consultation was that the Inspector had indicated that there was a potential for residents and others to be confused by the number of different versions of the Plan available on the consultation and Local Plan webpages.

 

The Inspector had indicated that this would not impact on the timetabling of the report of the hold up the progress of the Local Plan.  He had indicated that he would be issuing his report around early August to be presented to the Full Council meeting in September as previously planned.

 

Andrew Darcy, the new Planning Policy Manager was in attendance to respond to any queries.

 

As far as the 5 year housing land supply was concerned, it was anticipated that an update would be provided at the Planning Committee meeting in June.

 

Councillor Atterwill asked the Officers in attendance what they expected the 5 year housing land supply to be once the Local Plan had been adopted.  The Director of Planning & Building Control advised that the rules of how it was calculated had changed and therefore, at the moment, it was impossible to say.  It was noted that most authorities were now utilising this new methodology.  Councillor Atterwill was disappointed with the response and gave him no confidence.  It was explained that the 5 year housing land supply figure was unknown due to the changes in methodology and the amount of allocations that still had to come forward.

 

On a brighter note, Members were informed that the Swaffham Neighbourhood Plan had been approved at a recent Cabinet meeting and this would now form part of the Development Plan.  Any applications that now came forward would have to be taken into account if these applications were within the Neighbourhood Plan area.
