The Senior Planner presented the report to the committee confirming it was tabled following a call-in from Ward Member Councillor Peter Watson. No updates to the report within the agenda were presented.
Representation was received by Mr Clive Wickes the agent for the applicant which included.
Reiterating that the site to the east had been approved on appeal, Mr Wickes advised that the developer of that site had produced a very attractive layout and quality of homes which had been supported by public uptake.
The current site had been closed since October 2021 and was full of asbestos clad sheds. The proposal gave a gateway entrance for the frontage with bungalows either side of the access road, beyond that three small four bedroom dwellings would be sited with an executive house at the end of the site which has a corner tower.
With the site under consideration, Mr Wickes felt that the two sites would massively enhance the architectural of Kirton End and raise design standards within the Borough.
Noting the considerable concerns raised in respect of the application, Mr Wickes questioned the one citing a considerable distance from amenities, stating that both Kirton End and Wyberton were within a mile of the site, lending the development to support facilities in adjacent villages.
Lincolnshire County Highways had not objected to the application stating that it would create less vehicle movements than the previous caravan business on the site. The new footpath was sited on highway land and was in addition to the existing road and not a part of it. The site entrance created a passing bay ensuring that the grass verge opposite would not turn to mud.
The flood risk was sequentially preferable to most in the Borough and the test had been satisfied. The site had been deemed safe for a life time and both foul and surface water had been deemed acceptable.
The ditch to the north of the site prevented a natural stop ensuring no further ribbon development of the site.
In conclusion the reporting officer was commended on the thorough report tabled and committee asked to agree the officer recommendation.
Representation was received by Parish Councillor Ralph Pryke which included:
Prior to Kirton Parish Council’s November meeting at which it had given consideration to the application, three of the Councillors had been contacted by residents voicing concerns. One resident had informed a Parish Councillor that there would not be enough room to put a footpath without a compulsory purchase order to secure private land to enable the footpath. On noting the condition within the application, the Parish Council had questioned how it would be implemented if it was subject to the compulsory purchase order. The main concern was that it was felt the site would be over development of the area because of ... view the full minutes text for item 145.
