The minutes of the Planning and Development Committee held on 14 August 2015 were taken as read and approved as a correct record.

15/12 SCHEDULE OF THE REMAINING PLANNING APPLICATIONS TO BE CONSIDERED BY COMMITTEE

The Head of Planning submitted plans deposited as applications to develop land under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and the Head of Planning reported thereon.

 

SUSPENSION OF COUNCIL PROCEDURE RULE NO 5 - ORDER OF BUSINESS

 

ORDERED that, in accordance with Council Procedure Rule No 5, the Committee agreed to vary the order of business.

 

ORDERED that the following applications be determined as shown:

 

M/OUT/0918/15/P - Outline application for residential development at Land East of Hemlington Lane, Middlesbrough for Mr D Velemir

 

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

 

Full details of the planning application, planning history and the plan status were outlined in the report. The report contained a detailed analysis of the application and analysed relevant policies from the National Planning Policy Framework and the Local Development Framework.

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and 4 objections to the application were received from residents. Three of the four objections received from residents had been received after the report had been circulated and the Head of Planning outlined the substance of the objections. Tees Valley Wildlife Trust and Councillor Arundale had also objected to the application, the details of which were contained within the report. The statutory consultees had offered no objections to the application subject to certain conditions being placed on the planning permission, if it was approved.


A resident addressed the Committee on behalf of a number of residents present at the meeting in objection to the application. Members raised concerns regarding traffic, ecological and arboricultural issues. The Principal Traffic Engineer advised that the Highways Department would want to see a detailed layout plan showing the proposed alterations to the Ladgate Lane/Hemlington Lane junction when the reserved matters application was submitted to ensure that the Council was satisfied that there were no adverse implications on the operation of the local highway network in terms of either road safety or capacity. It was confirmed that the ecological survey would be carried out prior to the reserved matters application being submitted.

 

The Chair advised that given the concerns raised by Members, the reserved matters application should be dealt with by Planning and Development Committee, rather than as a delegated decision. A Member requested that the details of the three objections received after the report had been circulated, be included in the reserved matters application when it was submitted to Committee.

 

ORDERED that the application be Approved on Condition for the reasons set out in the report, but that the reserved matters application be submitted to full Planning and Development Committee for consideration.

 

M/RES/0808/15/P - Reserved matters application for 375 no. dwellings, roads, access, landscaping and associated works at Cleveland Police Headquarters, Ladgate Lane, Middlesbrough for Mr A McVickers

 

Full details of the planning application, planning history and the plan status were outlined in the report. The report contained a detailed analysis of the application and analysed relevant policies from the National Planning Policy Framework and the Local Development Framework.
 

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and five objections to the application were received and three letters seeking further information, the details of which were included within the report. The Head of Planning advised that these objections had been dealt with when the Outline application had been submitted to Committee.

 

The Council was currently holding discussions with the developer regarding noise from the Parkway, but this could be dealt with by placing a condition on the planning permission, if granted. The statutory consultees had been consulted and the Secure by Design group had objected to the application. Councillor Arundale had raised concerns regarding the effect of the development on traffic congestion and concerns regarding the cutting down of trees.

 

The applicant addressed the Committee in support of the application. An objector addressed the Committee in objection to the application.

 

ORDERED that the application be Approved on Condition for the reasons set out in the report.

Full details of the planning application, planning history and the plan status were outlined in the report. The report contained a detailed analysis of the application and analysed relevant policies from the National Planning Policy Framework and the Local Development Framework.

 

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and no objections to the application had been received. The statutory consultees had offered no objections to the application subject to certain conditions being placed on the planning permission, if it was approved. The Highways Department had however commented that the proposal to include 49 car parking spaces was inadequate and as a consequence the number of car parking spaces had been increased by five to 54.
