OUTCOME OF SPECIAL MEETING

About 70 people attended the Parish Council meeting on 12th February 2014 and heard a presentation about plans to develop land next to the Primary School.

Following the presentation, questions and answers and a debate, a vote was held. 31 voted against putting the land into the Local Plan as being available and suitable for development, while 24 voted in favour of doing so.

The Parish Council will respond to the draft North Molton chapter of the Local Plan accordingly.

RESPONSE TO NDC PLANNING APPLICATION 57625

Text of the Parish Council response to NDC Planning Department Outine Planning Application 57625 (34 dwellings and access etc at land off Back Lane / Heasley Mill Rd).

The application was considered at a special Parish Council meeting on 27.8.14. † †34 members of the public attended and the applicant's architect presented the plans, outlined their vision of the development and answered questions of the public and council.

The Parish Council wishes to make the following points:

It †is concerned that, contrary to normal practice, †this outline planning application does not provide sufficient information about access to the site.

Although the site was originally identified as suitable for development in 1995, car ownership and the volume of road traffic has increased significantly since then. What was suitable then may no longer be suitable today. ††

A previous development, Roberts Field, is still in an unfinished state and the site requires making good. This should be tackled before any new permissions are granted.

Liaison between the various developers seeking to build in North Molton over such matters as traffic management and access points would be useful and should be encouraged by the NDDC Planning team.

If approved, this application, taken with others already approved, would mean that the number of houses to be †built over the next few years would exceed that quoted in the Local Plan.

The council feels that a site †meeting between representatives of the Planning Department, Highways, the architects and interested parties from North Molton would be a very helpful and constructive step.

†However, the council approved the application, subject to the following items of concern being addressed:

  1. The proposed access to the site is unsuitable and would cause severe inconvenience to residents of Oakford Villas/Close as well as adding significantly to traffic congestion around the school entrance. The site itself is an obvious candidate for development but access to it is a major problem.
  2. There is a need for the development †to maximise parking capacity to cope with the increased number of vehicles and journeys attendant upon the application. The council suggests that the development includes a minimum of two parking spaces per dwelling as well as extra parking for the community. † †Allied to this, the school crossing needs to be upgraded, possibly to a Toucan crossing.
  3. †Responsibility for maintenance of the bank adjoining Back Lane needs to be made explicit. Also, properties in this part of the development should be changed from multi-storey to bungalows, so that they do not dominate existing properties there.
  4. The proposed layout of footpaths needs to be reassessed so as to ensure, so far as possible, that pedestrians have a level access route to the centre of the village.
  5. The main road out of North Molton is already in dire need of repair and would require substantial †work in order to safely carry vehicles involved in †building work, in the first instance, and increased domestic traffic thereafter. A significant commuted sum from the developer of any large site would be looked for in regard to this.
  6. Sewage management in North Molton is already problematic and any new development must address this.
