PROPOSAL

Erection of 130 dwellings and a 375sqm Class E retail convenience store, including access, parking, open space, landscaping and a sustainable urban drainage system (SuDS)

 

AMENDMENTS

Letter received 10th January responding to LLFA’s comments

 

CASE OFFICER

Mrs Samantha Owen

 

 

 

REFUSED for the reasons:

 

 

1.

The development has failed to demonstrate adequate visibility splays on the internal road between plots 52 and 57 which would have an adverse impact on the function and safety of the local highway network and would not accord with Policy T1 of the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan (2016).

 

 

2.

The development has failed to demonstrate that the Swept Path analysis of the internal road between plots 52 and 57 can accommodate an 11.2 metre refuse vehicle without it encroaching onto the opposite side of the internal access road which would bring it into conflict with other vehicles as such this would not be safe and would have an adverse impact on the function and safety of the local highway network and would not accord with Policy T1 of the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan 2016.

 

 

3.

The submitted Travel Plan does not support and promote the use of sustainable transport and as such it does not accord with Policy T1 of the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan 2016.

 

 

4.

There is a shortfall in 4 visitor spaces across the Parcel for which no adequate justification has been put forward that would allow for a reduction in visitor spaces against the standards as set out in Annexe G of the RLP, which is likely to result in on street parking that would impact the operation and safety of the internal road network and therefore does not accord with Policy T2 of the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan 2016.

 

 

5.

Plots 1-12, 44-52, 67 and 68 are likely to encourage on street parking along Dairy Road and Finkley Farm Road.  Parking on the road will hinder the free flow of traffic along these routes resulting in an adverse impact on the safety and character of the local highway network and would be contrary to Policy T1 of the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan 2016.

 

 

6.

The parking for plots 113-118 is poorly designed in terms of its relationship with the dwelling it is allocated to.  Plots 28, 51, 52, 67, 94 and 95 have allocated parking that is somewhat remote from the unit it serves.  It is not considered that parking for these plots is well designed or appropriately locatedand therefore does not accord with Policy T2 of the Test Valley Revised Local Plan 2016.

 

 

 

 

7.

Parking spaces are required to be well designed and practical.  A number of parking spaces are constrained on one or both sides by retaining walls, in these instances parking spaces should be 2.7  ...  view the full minutes text for item 537.
