 Conditions and Reasons
The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission. Reason: In accordance with the provisions of Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1990 ( as amended by Section 51 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004).
The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the approved plans listed in schedule A. Reason: For the avoidance of doubt and in the interests of proper planning.
The following measures shall be incorporated as part of the development unless otherwise agreed in writing for the protection of potential local bat populations: Demolition of the existing dwelling shall only be carried out in the period November to March of any year. The removal of all ridge and roof tiles of the building being demolished shall be carried out under the supervision of licensed bat ecologist. If a bat is discovered all work must stop and advice sought by the ecologist from Natural England. Two bat boxes of the Schwegler type 1FQ or similar shall be erected on the exterior of the new buildings and maintained in perpetuity in locations submitted to and approved by Sedgemoor District Council prior to completion of the works. Reason: Bats and their roosts are afforded protection under the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010 which includes making it illegal to damage or destroy roosts whether bats are in occupation or not. Individual bats are protected from intentional or reckless disturbance under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). To ensure the development contributes to the Government's target of no net biodiversity loss and to provide gain where possible as set out in the National Planning Policy Framework; Sedgemoor District Council Core Strategy Policy D14; and the council's obligations for biodiversity under the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006. Bat species are adversely affected by the introduction of artificial lighting illuminating roost sites.
Before the dwelling hereby approved is first occupied, the proposed access over at least the first 5 metres of its length, as measured from the nearside edge of the adjoining carriageway, shall be properly consolidated and surfaced (not loose stone or gravel) and shall be maintained as such at all times. Reason; In the interest of highway safety.
Any entrance gates erected shall be hung to open inwards and shall be set back a minimum distance of 2.4 metres from the nearside carriageway edge. Reason: In the interest of highway safety.
Provision shall be made within the site for the disposal of surface water so as to prevent its discharge onto the highway. Such provision shall be made before the access is first brought into use and maintained thereafter at all times. Reason: In the interest of highway safety.
Before the dwelling hereby approved is occupied, the area allocated for parking on the approved plan shall be provided and kept clear of obstruction at all times and shall not be used other than for parking of vehicles in connection with the development hereby permitted. Reason: In the interest of highway safety.
