Land east of Waterwells, Marconi Drive, Quedgeley - 17/00699/FUL

Amended proposal for 118 dwelling units, involving revisions to site layout, landscaping, surfacing, open space and play area.

Minutes:

The Principal Planning Officer presented the report which detailed an amended proposal for 118 dwelling units including revisions to site layout, landscaping, surfacing, open space and play on land east of Waterwells,  Marconi Drive, Quedgeley.

 

He advised Members that this was a cross-boundary application with 34 dwellings situated in Stroud District Council’s administrative area and 84 within Gloucester City Council’s area.

 

He drew Members’ attention to the late material which contained responses form the Drainage Adviser, the Local Highway Authority and Natural England together with revised conditions.

 

Mr Mark Ryder, a local resident, addressed the Committee in opposition to the application.

 

A Member requested that there should be a condition requiring measures to deter seagulls due to the forthcoming closure of the Hempsted tip.

 

The Planning Technical Manager undertook to investigate this and add a suitable condition if required.

 

Another Member believed that the contribution of £24,000 for play equipment was insufficient. He was advised that this sum represented a contribution to off-site provision of play equipment and did not relate to the proposed on-site Locally Equipped Play Area.

 

The Highways Officer advised that the forthcoming closure of Hempsted tip had been taken into account as part of the Javelin Park debate.

 

The Chair moved the recommendation in the report together with the revised conditions in the late material and the inclusion of a further condition requiring anti-seagull measures if deemed necessary. Councillor Morgan seconded the motion.

 

RESOLVED that the Planning Technical Manager be authorised to grant consent subject to the satisfactory completion of a Section 106 Agreement as detailed in the report, a condition to require anti-seagull measures if deemed necessary and the conditions in the report with the following amendments:-
