We have been advised that water and electricity are connected together with drainage which is to a private septic tank (which we understand is a new installation) and central heating is LPG with a new tank /system recently installed.

A legal pack is in the process of being prepared however due to the nature of this development all prospective buyers must satisfy their own enquiries with regards to planning via their own legal representatives and planning departments.

We understand the following matters remain outstanding for planning permission to be granted:

– Justification/Business Case for the development within the Green Belt;
– Details on gross internal floor space in line with minimum spacing standards (details supplied previously);
– Confirmation of agreement to pay the required planning obligations, legal and monitoring fees by way of S106 or Unilateral Undertaking (UU);
– Return of completed UU template if this is the chosen agreement method and a copy of the Title Plan and Deeds;
– Details of how the non-vehicular public right of way will be managed and maintained to ensure inter-user safety;
-Updated Heritage Statement
– Plan showing No.6 car parking spaces

It appears, there has been a change in the Council’s position regarding this application. On 16 January, they were seeking additional information, which indicated that they were willing to consider potential to approve the application. This position has now changed, and the only two options identified are (1) withdrawal of the application or (2) a refusal based on current information.

The matters identified are material planning considerations and failure to adequately address them would warrant a refusal of permission. The Greenbelt and space standards issues are significant and require additional work. Justification on these issues would require a detailed understanding of the current site and development scenario.
