Approval of reserved matters following WA/68/20/OUT for construction of 131 No homes (30% affordable homes) and associated works. This application is a Departure from the Development Plan, may affect the setting of listed buildings, may affect the character and appearance of the Walberton Village Conservation Area and is in CIL Zone 3 and is CIL Liable as new dwellings.


The Planning Area Team Leader presented the report with updates. He explained that a previous reserved matters application [WA/86/22/RES] had been refused at Committee in November 2022 [Minute 484] due to the lack of bungalows on the southern boundary and the material finishes of several of the proposed dwellings, and confirmed that this new application had did include single storey bungalows to the southern boundary and provided an updated schedule of materials. This was followed by 2 Public Speakers.


One Member repeated their concern about the appropriateness of the LAP (Local Area for Play) being in front of the bungalows and out of sight of the affordable housing. Another Member sought clarification on the wording of condition 8 (in the Conditions Update on page 11 of the Supplement Pack) to prevent additions to the roofs of the bungalows on the southern boundary. The recommendation was then proposed by Councillor Chapman and seconded by Councillor Lury.
