Clyst Valley - Cllr Mike Howe

Consultation Date: Wed 10 Aug 2016

Parish/Town Council

Comment Date: Fri 26 Aug 2016

o The council has major concerns regarding this development with both the design and materials used.
o Under the Clyst st mary New and old local plan it clearly states that any new proposed dwelling Must match the existing local area housing. (ie pitch roof.)
o Clyst st Mary is a rural village which consists of different age properties all of which are constructed to this design
o This dwelling consists of a mono pitch design in the grounds of two barn conversions both of which are rendered in white and also have a slate pitch roof, the proposed design would have a negative over baring impact on these old barns.
o Building materials proposed is not in keeping with any of the surrounding dwellings and therefore not deemed suitable under the neighbourhood plan.
o The position of the proposed development is on the main lane used to the local rural Church (Church Lane) and it is felt that this type of design would be both unsightly and obtrusive to local parishioners attending Church. Again a negative impact.
o Sustainability - the nearest mains drainage that could be used for this site is approximately 80 MTRS away and would involve crossing 2 roads (church lane and Clyst valley road) the digging up of the only pedestrians access from the Winslade Park to Church lane and a pavement on clyst valley road.
o The only other means of providing drainage would be a cesspit which is not deemed as a suitable method of sewage waste disposal.
o Voting on this application was 6-1 against.
