Where is the scheme located?
The proposed site is located directly south of and outside the designated Basingstoke settlement boundary. To the immediate north and east of the site is a farm track which is flanked by trees and used by farm vehicle. East of the site is Audleys Hotel and Audleys Resources centre. There are two fields to the west of the site and a car repair centre which adjoins the B3046. A series of fields reside directly south of the site whilst to the immediate south west is a grouping of trees and shrubs.
What is the proposed development?
The full planning application proposed the development of a new dog agility arena and business at the proposed site location. The development includes an enclosed space with resurfacing similar to an equestrian ménege. The arena is set one metre from the boundary running 40 metres along the north and east boundary and 15m into the field. The proposed development has greatly increased the quality of dog training facilities and further developed the existing business which has been operating at the site for more than two years.
What are the material planning considerations?
The following issues were considered to be material planning considerations;
• Principle of Development
• Visual Impact
• Highway Impact
Policy SD1 states that the Council should take a positive approach to sustainable development which in National Policy focuses on improving economic, social and environmental conditions of the proposed site location. The Council concluded that whilst the land is outside of settlement boundary, it is not utilised as agricultural land and that the proposal would provide a clear economic benefit.
With almost every development, it is important that the proposal does not compromise the character of the area. As the site is relatively enclosed and that the scheme mainly revolves around a low-lying arena, the Council decided it would be unlikely to cause such a significant detrimental visual impact to warrant refusal.
Highway impact mostly centred on parking provision. As with any commercial operation, especially within the countryside, sustainability and the integrity of the local highway network is critical. The scheme proposed eight parking spaces split into six for customers and two for the business owner and a volunteer or employee. The Council agreed that this was sufficient.
James Banks was the lead planning consultant who secured a lawful development certificate for a new 2.4MW Ground Mounted Solar Photovoltaic Development within Cardiff Airport.
This full planning application proposes the development of 1.5MW of decentralised low carbon energy generation through the installation of a ground mounted photovoltaic (PV) solar array on brownfield land at the Aerospace Business Park, St Athan.
The planning application proposed a change of use of the land to forest school including the provision of associated parking. This is an educational scheme that takes adults and children into the woodland to learn about ecology, nature and survival.
The proposed development was granted full householder planning permision and only one condition was attached to ensure the development was carried out in accordance with the approved plans. Therefore, no conditions are required to be discharged.
