Details of measures to protect any existing footpaths and verges shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority and implemented upon commencement of construction and thereafter these measures should be removed on completion of the works

 

Plans showing the location and details of covered, secure parking for 20 cycles shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority and subsequently installed to their satisfaction.

 

As the proposed development is near to a busy road an assessment of road noise will be required. When noise from road traffic at the development site or at the fašade of habitable rooms exceeds 60dB (A)L10(18 hours) between 6.00am and midnight based upon a 15 year projection, a scheme to protect the proposed development from road traffic noise will be required to ensure that road noise within habitable rooms shall be no more than 35dB(A)L10(18 hours) measured between 6.00am and midnight based upon a 15 year projection. Internal noise levels must be obtainable while at the same time meeting the necessary requirements for ventilation to habitable rooms. Developments shall not begin until an assessment of road noise and if necessary a scheme for protecting the proposed dwellings from traffic noise has been submitted to an approved by the Local Planning Authority. All works which form part of the scheme shall be completed before any of the proposed development is operational.

 

Details of ventilation and fume extraction system suitable for all hot food uses including a full technical specification by a suitably qualified technical professional person, specifying the position of ventilation fume or flue outlet points and the type of filtration or other fume treatment to be installed and used at the premises to control the release of cooking odours in pursuance of this permission shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority and shall be installed before the development hereby committed commences and thereafter shall be retained in full accordance with the approved details. The ventilation and extraction system referred to in this condition shall be operated and marinated in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations including the frequency of replacement filters.

 

Before any fixed plant and machinery, including refrigeration, extraction and air conditioning equipment, is used on the premises it shall be enclosed with sound insulating material and mounted in such a way that will minimise transmission of airborne and structure-borne sound in accordance with an acoustic assessment based upon British Standard BS4142 to be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. Such a scheme should make reference to existing noise levels prior to development and predicted noise levels from the proposed plant and machinery at residential premises.

 

Before first use of the development an assessment of existing external noise sources at the rear of the proposed development shall be made to identify particular areas where noise levels are likely to interfere with suitable internal noise conditions from habitable rooms. The assessment shall identify mitigation measures to be used to ensure habitable rooms are suitable for there intended use. The assessment shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

 

M/FP/0922/11/P - Change of use from car showroom to car wash at Methodist Church, Kings Road, North Ormesby, Middlesbrough for Supreme Property Developments

 

The Head of Development advised Members that this application had been identified as requiring a site visit by members of the Planning and Development Committee. Accordingly a site visit had been held prior to the meeting.

 

Full details of the planning application, plan status and planning history were outlined in the report. Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and one objection to the application was received from Relph Funeral Directors, 43 Kings Road on the grounds of noise, over intensification and the nature of the objector’s business required a peaceful environment, the details of which were advised to the Committee. Concerns had also been expressed by the neighbouring library that parking had been an issue in the past and whilst they did not object in principle to the application, they highlighted the need to maintain access. Comments from the statutory authorities were also included in the report.

 

The report contained a detailed analysis of the application, addressed the objections and comments and analysed relevant policies from the Local Development Framework. The Head of Development highlighted that the Community Protection Department had carried out a noise survey to assess the existing noise levels in the area and to determine whether the proposals would have a detrimental effect on the nearest noise sensitive locations.

 

The Head of Development advised that an additional condition would be included in relation to the requirement for an improvement scheme in respect of the ground surface/appearance of the building and the location of the jet sprays, should Members be minded to approve the application.

 

ORDERED that the application be Approved subject to the conditions included in the report and the inclusion of the following additional condition, for the reasons set out in the report:

 

A further formal planning application is required showing the necessary works to the site, including resurfacing, boundary enclosure, jet wash screens and improvements to the elevations of the associated buildings. Such scheme as may be approved shall be implemented before the use approved under M/FP/0922/11/P commences.

 

M/FP/1035/12/P - Retrospective 2m boundary fence at 218 Trimdon Avenue, Acklam, Middlesbrough for Mr P Farley

The report contained a detailed analysis of the application, addressed the objections and comments and analysed relevant policies from the Local Development Framework. The Head of Development advised that officers had met with the applicant to suggest ways of amending the application to make the fence appear less intrusive and conspicuous.

 

The applicant had attempted to lessen the impact of the fence by chamfering the corner of the fence and adding decorative detail. Officers considered that the proposed amendments by the applicant did not outweigh the fact that the proposal did not meet with the Council’s principles in relation to open plan estates and the proposal presented an incongruous feature within the streetscene contrary to Polices DC1 and CS5 of the Local Development Framework.

 

ORDERED that the application be Refused and Enforcment Action be authorised , for the reasons set out in the report.

M/FP/1153/12/P - Erection of 64 no. dwellings (comprising 52 no. dwellinghouses and 12 no. flats in 2 blocks) with associated car parking and access at former Ashdale Pru, Marton Road, Middlesbrough for Taylor Wimpey (North Yorkshire) Ltd

Comments from the statutory authorities were also included in the report. Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and one objection to the application was received from the occupier of 17c Scholars Rise, the details of which were advised to the Committee. The applicant was advised of the details of the objection and had subsequently agreed to remove a section of the fence between the existing block of flats and the proposed flats to create a pedestrian through access. The developer had also confirmed that secured cycle parking would be erected which would provide parking for 10 cycles for the existing flats and the proposed flats.

 

ORDERED that the application be Approved subject to the conditions included in the report.
