The Committee considered application 3/19/1365/FUL for the erection of 14 commercial units for B1(b), B1(c) and B8 use, together with access and associated parking at land north of Casa Velha, Ringwood Road, Three Legged Cross to provide capacity for light industrial and storage businesses to complement the principle of new employment development to meet economic need. Whilst the application site had not been allocated for employment development in the Christchurch and East Dorset Local Plan Part 1 – Core Strategy, it was located within the urban area of Three Legged Cross and, as such, the principle of new employment development was generally acceptable subject to compliance with other relevant planning policy. With the aid of a visual presentation and having regard to the provisions of the Update Sheet, officers explained what the main proposals and planning issues of the development were; how these were to be progressed; and what the benefits of the development entailed. Plans and photographs provided an illustration of the location, dimensions, configuration and design of the development, with the presentation also confirming what the highways and access arrangements being proposed would be – in sharing the access with the Oakdene Nursing Home; what the landscaping and tree retention arrangements would be; how the units would look and their setting within that part of Three Legged Cross; and showed the development’s relationship with Oakdene Nursing Home, together with the characteristics of the surrounding area.

3/20/0657/CONDR - Land North of Casa Velha, Ringwood Road, Three Legged Cross,

Minutes:

 

The Committee considered application 3/20/0657/CONDR to vary Condition 18 (hours of operation) of PA 3/19/1365/FUL (Erection of 14 commercial units for

B1(b), B1(c) and B8 use together with access and associated parking) to vary the hours of operation  Land North of Casa Velha, Ringwood Road, Three Legged Cross, Wimborne so as to provide for operations during the hours of 10:00 to 16:00 on Sundays or public holidays, including deliveries to site. The development currently provided capacity for light industrial and storage businesses to complement the principle of new employment development to meet economic need and this variation was designed to benefit this still further.

 

With the aid of a visual presentation, officers explained what the main proposals and planning issues of the variation were; why these were considered necessary; the reasoning for this and what benefits these would bring – in furthering the capacity of the site and providing the opportunity for flexibility in how the operations were able to be undertaken.

 

Plans and photographs provided an illustration of the location, dimensions, configuration and design of the development, with the presentation also confirming what the highways and access arrangements were; landscaping characteristics; noise assessments made; the development’s relationship with neighbouring amenity and particularly the Oakdene Nursing Home, and set the development in context with the characteristics of the surrounding area.

 

The Planning Officer had also sought additional clarification regarding specific Sunday background noise levels not included in the Noise Impact Assessment and, following a series of assessments made, consideration given to the LOAEL – Lowest Observed Adverse Effect Level - above which adverse effects on health and quality of life could be detected.

 

Consequently the noise impact assessment satisfactorily demonstrated that the impact of site operations for the B1 and B8 during the daytime period, including on Sundays, would have the Lowest Observed Adverse Effect Level (LOAEL) adverse impact on the dwellings in the vicinity of the site and was therefore considered acceptable in terms of planning and noise.

 

As such,  having assessed the material considerations as outlined within the report, and with the conditions set out, there were not considered to be any matters which would warrant a refusal of planning permission in this case. Approval subject to the following conditions is therefore recommended.

 

Formal consultation had generated an objection from Verwood Town Council – on the basis that given the site’s relationship to nearby properties it would adversely affect amenity by general disturbance, which should be minimised. Comments from the Environmental Health officer were that although the applicant had demonstrated through noise modelling that there was unlikely to be a statutory nuisance, there would undoubtedly be some noise created by the new development, which bordered residential properties. In extending operating hours and deliveries to include Sundays and bank holidays when residents were likely to be using their gardens could give rise to complaints of disturbance in the future.

 

The Committee were then notified of those written submissions received and officers read these direct to the Committee -  ...  view the full minutes text for item 129.
