 Conditions and Reasons
Approval of the details of the access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale (hereinafter called "the reserved matters") shall be obtained from the local planning authority in writing before any development is commenced. Plans and particulars of the reserved matters referred to above, relating to the access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale, shall be submitted in writing to the local planning authority and shall be carried out as approved. Application for approval of the reserved matters shall be made to the local planning authority before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission. The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of two years from the date of approval of the last of the reserved matters to be approved, whichever is the later. Reasons: The application was submitted as an outline application in accordance with the provisions of Article 3(1) of the Town and Country Planning (General Development Procedure) Order 1995 (As amended by SI 2006/1062). In accordance with the provisions of Section 92 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 development shall be undertaken in accordance with the approved Flood Risk Assessment (02/09/2014, Greenslade Taylor Hunt), including setting finished floor levels 300mm above existing ground levels. Reason: To reduce the risk and impact of flooding on the proposed development and future occupants.
Prior to the use hereby approved commencing, a flood emergency plan shall be completed and submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority. The flood emergency plan should include warning procedures, safe access/egress routes and appropriate actions for occupiers to take in the event of a flood. The use hereby approved shall not commence until the measures included in the flood emergency plan have been implemented.  Reason: To safeguard the occupants from flood risk.
The occupation of the dwelling shall be limited to a person solely or mainly working, or last working, in the locality in agriculture or in forestry, or a widow or widower of such a person, and to any resident dependents. Reason: This development is only acceptable in the locality because of the established agricultural need.
All electricity and telephone services shall be placed underground. Reason: In the interests of visual amenity.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order, 1995 (or any other order revoking or reenacting that order with or without modification). There should be no enlargement, improvement or other alterations to the dwelling, or the erection of any building or enclosure in the curtilage as specified under classes A,B, C, D, E and F of Schedule 2 part 1 of the Order, nor any alteration to the existing or formation of new openings in the building without the prior consent of the local planning authority. Reason: The local planning authority is not satisfied that the dwelling could be altered/extended or a new building erected without detriment to the character of the building and surrounding rural area and without severely diminishing the level of amenity space and parking facilities connected with the dwelling.
The net internal area floor space of the proposed new dwelling shall not exceed 150 square metres measured externally with the floor space of any garage not exceeding 40 square metres. Reason: In order that the dwelling remains affordable for an agricultural worker
Foul and surface water drainage details will need to be submitted to and receive approval from the Local Planning Authority in connection with discussion with the Somerset Drainage Boards Consortium. The drainage shall be installed as agreed. Reason: The additional surface water run-off generated by this development will need to be controlled in a manner that does not increase flood risk elsewhere, which is in accordance with the principles set out in Section 103 of the National Planning Policy Framework and Section 2 of the Technical Guidance to the national Planning Policy Framework.
