ON THE INSTRUCTIONS OF NEWICK PARISH COUNCIL

DESCRIPTION            

The application site is 0.05 hectares/0.12 acres in area and is broadly rectangular, located between The Rough and Vernons Road/Paynters Way in Newick. The site is bound to the West by No.6 Vernons Road, to the North by Nos. 53 & 55 Oldaker Road, to the East by Nos.36-40 The Rough and to the South by No.34 The Rough & No.9 Vernons Road. There is a footpath linking Vernons Road with The Rough which is aligned along the Southern area of the site.  

The site is laid to grass with some hedging in place, a tree located at the entrance flanking No.36 The Rough. Another tree is located to the rear of No.38 & 40.

The application site is within the planning boundary of Newick and situated in a residential area developed in the late 1960's and early 1970's. The land is not within an area of established character or a conservation area and there are no listed buildings within or adjoining the site.

PLANNING

The site has been granted outline planning permission for the erection of one pair of semi-detached 3-bedroom houses with integral garages.

At this stage the principle of development has been established along with the means of access and parking provision. All other matters are reserved for future consideration.

The plans submitted show a footprint of 2 no. semi-detached dwellings set approximately 25 metres away from the properties to the north of the site and over 16 metres from those to the east. Number 6 Vernons Road would be set just 1.6 metres away from the proposed dwellings to the west.

Rear gardens proposed would be approximately 10 metres deep. The proposed dwellings would be built within the site, with the public footpath forming part of the access road or being moved a few metres to run alongside it. Five parking spaces would be set adjacent to the existing footpath. This footpath is adopted highway.

There will be a requirement to pay a SAMM contribution (Strategic Access Management& Monitoring), payable prior to commencement of the development, of £1,170 per dwelling and a SANG contribution (Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace), payable prior to occupation of £5,000 per dwelling.
