 Conditions and Reasons
1
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).
2
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.
3
The existing dwelling known as 'Apple Tree Cottage' shall be demolished (excluding the west side of the property to be retained) and all materials removed from the site to the satisfaction of the Local Planning Authority prior to the occupation of the dwelling hereby permitted. Reason: It is the policy of the local planning authority to restrict additional dwellings in this area.
4
A sample panel, 1 metre x 1 metre minimum, shall be erected on site to show the size, colour and type of natural stone, along with its bonding pattern, type of mortar and recessed jointing. The panel shall be agreed in writing prior to building work commencing and shall be retained on site until the completion of the works. All natural stone walling shall be constructed in accordance with that approved sample panel. Reason: To achieve a satisfactory and complementary form of development and for the avoidance of doubt as to the extent of the permission granted.
5
The area allocated for parking and turning on the submitted plan PA/SO/14/011/003 shall be kept clear of obstruction and shall not be used other than for parking and turning of vehicles in connection with the development hereby permitted. Reason: In the interests of highway safety.
6
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning General Permitted Development) Order, 1995, the prior written permission of the local planning authority shall be sought for any additions or extensions to the dwelling by the submission of a planning application. Reason: The local planning authority is not satisfied that the dwelling could be extended without detriment to the character of the building.
7
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (or any order revoking and re- enacting that Order) (with or without modification), no windows/dormer windows other than those expressly authorised by this permission shall be constructed. Reason: In the interests of residential amenity.
8
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (or any order revoking and re-enacting that Order) the use of the garage hereby permitted shall be limited to the domestic and private needs of the occupier and shall not be used for any business or other purpose whatsoever. Reason: To ensure the dwelling is served by adequate levels of parking.
9
Surface water drainage (land drainage) details, to include the method of dealing with the surface water from the proposed development (this includes roofs, road and impermeable driveways) shall be submitted to and approved by the local planning authority before development is commenced. The surface water drainage scheme shall be installed in accordance with the details so approved. Reason: To ensure that the development is served by an adequate system of surface water drainage (land drainage) without detriment to itself, adjoining properties or highway. Any soakaways planned, are required to be a min 5m away from any building and highway. Due to the location of the site and a likely high water table, the effectiveness of soakaways is unsure, therefore evidence in the form of design calculations, soil infiltration rates from percolation test, depth to water table results are required.
10
No demolition or any vegetative clearance work shall be carried out in the bird nesting season, which is approximately between March and August. If not possible a survey for nesting birds shall be carried out immediately prior to commencement of the works by a suitably qualified ecologist. Any nesting birds discovered will be buffered by an exclusion zone determined by the ecologist which will remain in force until the chicks have fledged. Reason: Nesting birds are afforded protection under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). Although this is a legal obligation the law does not specify a time period – some species can breed outside the time frame given.
11
Any features such as rubble piles which potentially afford resting places for reptiles will be dismantled by hand by a suitably qualified ecologist in April, May or October and any individuals found translocated to an appropriate location prior to works commencing on site. Reason: Reptile species are afforded protection from intentional and reckless killing or injury under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). Outside the period from April to October these species are likely to in torpor or hibernation when disturbance is likely to pose a risk to survival. Slow-worms lay eggs in June and young are hatched in the period up to mid-September.
12
Any vegetation in the construction area should initially be reduced to a height of 10 centimetres above ground level, brashings and cuttings removed and the remainder left for a minimum period of 48 hours of fine warm weather before clearing to minimise the risk of harming/killing any reptiles that may be present and to encourage their movement onto adjoining land. This work may only be undertaken during the period between April and October. Reason: Reptile species are afforded protection from intentional and reckless killing or injury under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). Outside the period from April to October these species are likely to in torpor or hibernation when disturbance is likely to pose a risk to survival. Slow-worms lay eggs in June and young are hatched in the period up to mid-September.
