PC Meeting Date March 19, 2020
PC Comments Response to original application July 2019 - Council has no objections but asks that ecologically sustainable methods & materials are used where possible and that electric vehicle charging points should be included as standard. Response to amended application November 2019 - Objects PC echoes the concerns of the landscape architect comments in terms of the hard appearance of the site. Suitable tree planting should be used to soften the appearance, but this will probably require a reduction in density. Tree planting should include sufficient space for the root zone. We object to the height of the proposed houses at almost 9m tall seems excessive for a 2 storey, particularly in a location surrounded by lower properties. The height of the properties should more closely match the surrounding properties in Orchard Way. The PC requests that houses constructed should be built to the highest possible sustainability standards, including solar panels. Response to amended plans December 2019 - The council objects to this application. Council welcomes the reduction made to the height of the properties, but still fees that they are too high for the surroundings; also still concerned that the frontage is quite hard especially comparing to existing properties in Orchard Way. Planting fruit trees in the back gardens, does nothing to soften the appearance of the property frontages. Council would like to re-iterate its previous requests that sustainable materials are used where possible. Response to amended plans March 2020 - Council still has concerns about the height of the houses, but welcomes the improvements to landscaping and ecology.
