Ottery St Mary Rural - Cllr P Carter

Consultation Date: Wed 29 Aug 2018

Clerk To West Hill Parish Council

Comment Date: Thu 04 Oct 2018

This application was considered at the meeting of West Hill Parish Council on 2nd October 2018. (Deferred from the Parish Council meeting on 18/9/18 as the plans were not available to view on the planning portal). Councillors commended the applicant for obtaining a full arboricultural report, which assisted them with their decision. Insofar as the extension does not harm existing trees, Councillors voted to support the application.

I have no objection to this development with the following condition:-
Prior to commencement of any works on site (including demolition), Tree Protection measures shall be carried out as detailed within the Arboricultural Report submitted by Advanced Aboriculture on the 28 August 2018 and shall adhere to the principles embodied in BS 5837:2012 and shall remain in place until all works are completed, no changes to be made without first gaining consent in writing from the Local Authority
In any event, the following restrictions shall be strictly observed:
(a) No burning shall take place in a position where flames could extend to within 5m of any part of any tree to be retained.
(b) No trenches for services or foul/surface water drainage shall be dug within the crown spreads of any retained trees (or within half the height of the trees, whichever is the greater) unless agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority. All such installations shall be in accordance with the advice given in Volume 4: National Joint Utilities Group (NJUG) Guidelines for the Planning, Installation And Maintenance Of Utility Apparatus In Proximity To Trees (Issue 2) 2007.
(c) No changes in ground levels or excavations shall take place within the crown spreads of retained trees (or within half the height of the trees, whichever is the greater) unless agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
(d) No trees, shrubs or hedges within the site which are shown as being planted or retained on the approved plans shall be felled, uprooted, wilfully damaged or destroyed, cut back in any way or removed without the prior written consent of the Local Planning Authority. Any trees, shrubs or hedges removed without such consent, or which die or become severely damaged or seriously diseased within five years from the occupation of any building, or the development hereby permitted being brought into use shall be replaced with trees, shrubs or hedge plants of similar size and species unless the Local Planning Authority gives written consent to any variation.
(Reason - To ensure retention and protection of trees on the site prior to and during construction in the interests of amenity and to preserve and enhance the character and appearance of the area in accordance with Policies D1 - Design and Local Distinctiveness and D3 - Trees and Development Sites of the Adopted New East Devon Local Plan 2013-2031).
