Application for the approval of Reserved Matters pursuant to condition 1 (Reserved Matters details), condition 6 (Design Code Masterplan) & condition 7 (landscaping & layout details) following the grant of P/134/16/OUT for the erection of 250 No. dwellings, (including affordable homes), replacement scout hut, land for an Ambulance Community Response Post Facility, demolition of No. 80 Rose Green Road & provision of Public Open Spaces including associated children’s play areas, landscaping, drainage & earthworks (resubmission following P/24/20/RES). This site also lies within the parish of Aldwick.
The Strategic Development Team Leader presented the report with updates. This was followed by 6 Public Speakers.
Members then took part in a full debate on the application where a number of points were raised and responded to by Officers, including:
· whether the report suggested tankerage would be used until Southern Water had made sufficient improvements to the public sewer system, and a lack of conditions on timescales for these works
· the issue of road widths
· flooding being a significant issue in the area, concerns over off-site discharge and the inability of SUDS to deal with the current green field run-off rate
· the proposed pedestrian and cyclist pathways and shared pathways no longer deemed the best option as conflict could occur between users
That the application for reserved matters and the design code masterplan be APPROVED CONDITIONALLY as detailed in the report and report update subject to the conditions as detailed.
