2021/0707/FUL – Erection of new double garage with driveway including adjustments to existing highways access to serve previously approved dwellinghouse at Land East of 15 Mill Lane, Stutton, Tadcaster.
2020/0771/HPA – Single storey side extension at The Barn, Low Park, Chantry Lane, Hazlewood, Tadcaster.
2021/0750/HPA – Erection of single storey rear extension, and alterations to window forming a door at 20 Manor Road, Stutton, Tadcaster, LS24 9BN.
b) Applications considered electronically since the last meeting:
2021/0481/FUL Conversion of a barn into a 2 bedroom dwelling at Sugar Hill Farm, Wingate Hill, Stutton, Tadcaster, LS24 9NF.
The proposed development is within a green belt area. There are concerns regarding sustainability and that conversions of agricultural buildings for domestic purposes/residential property produce the associated trappings of domestic life which are not suitable or appropriate for the green belt area. There is for example no suggestion that this conversion is required for agricultural workers.
The council does not feel that this development should go ahead.
NY/2021/0098/A27 Application for the approval of details reserved by condition No’s 3, 8, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 29 & 31 of Planning Permission Ref. No. C8/2009/1066/CPO which relates to details of schemes for the storage of materials, method of working, phasing of development and road and wheel cleaning facilities, a scheme which details the control of noise from HGV’s and fixed plant, a noise management plan, a scheme to deal with the management of risk associated with contamination of controlled waters, a verification report, a monitoring scheme for the monitoring of groundwater levels, a scheme for the management of surface and foul waters, a pre-commencement badger survey and a scheme detailing the provision of on-site parking/waiting for HGV’s at Jackdaw Crag Quarry, Moor Lane, Stutton, Tadcaster, LS42 9BH.
The Parish Council has reviewed this application and has a number of queries. We recognise that the original application and approval to which this refers must now be out time because of the delays consequent upon the court hearings involved and apologise if our concerns have been dealt with elsewhere.
This application states that work has already started and resubmits an unchanged timescale for the six phases running in annual stages from 2016 to 2022, Bearing in mind that the quarry was closed for a period in the interim this surely cannot be correct. What therefore is the proposed timescale and what is the approval limit for this application?
In addition we note that tHe original application showed a high pressure gas pipeline running through the site. Has this already been rerouted by National Grid or does it remain an outstanding issue?
Finally it seems unfortunate that the immediate neighbours have apparently not been reconsulted, in particular the occupants of Warren House Farm and Cottages, who will eventually find themselves living on the very edge of the new quarry face.
2021/0687/S73 Section 73 application to vary condition 09 (drawings) of approval 2015/0271/OUT Outline application with all matters reserved for erection of a single dwelling on land to the east of 15 Mill Lane, Stutton, Tadcaster, LS24 9BT granted on 16 June 2015.
The previous planning applications were reviewed and compared with the current amended plans and the changes discussed. The PC felt:
Access to the property from Mill Lane remains a concern, even with the amended access point
There is a requirement for a turning circle at the property and this is not accommodated in the revised plans
The extension of the property footprint brings the development closer to 15 Mill lane and has an overbearing impact on 15 Mill Lane
The proposed facing material for the property is not in keeping with the neighbouring properties or the agreed Village Design Statement
The additional ground covered by the development will further restrict the ability for water drainage and percolation through the ground, this is an area that floods frequently.
2020/1340/HPA Demolition of conservatory and replacement single storey rear and 2 storey side extension with repositioning of garage with new front wall and gate detail at Cherry Tree Cottage, Church Lane, Stutton, Tadcaster, LS24 9BH.
2021/0386/HPA Demolish existing conservatory and replace with single storey extension (amendments to previously approved planning application 2019/0505/HPA) at Wingate Hill Farm, Wingate Hill, Stutton, Tadcaster, LS24 9NF.
d) Selby District Council experiment of not notifying neighbours of planning applications:
The Parish Council has commented that:
This is a retrograde step, removing the opportunity for local people to become engaged in local developments relevant to them and their area
The policy discriminates against those people with disability that may not have access to posted notices, eg due to sight, mobility, etc issues. This is at odds with the diversity and inclusion policy
The PC has received complaints from neighbours who under the current rules, had not been informed of local developments and as such have not had an opportunity to comment. This situation will get worse with the proposals to stop neighbour consultation.
