Epping Forest District Local Plan Submission Version - Planning Policy Briefing Note

A Planning Policy Briefing Note (March 2018) has been produced by the Planning Policy Team to ensure that a consistent approach is taken to the provision of planning policy advice for the District, particularly in relation to the Epping Forest District Local Plan Submission Version, which was published on 18 December 2017.

 

The primary purpose of the Planning Policy Briefing Note is to inform the development management process and to provide assistance for Development Management Officers, Councillors, applicants and planning agents. The Planning Policy Briefing Note is available at:

Site Visits

To identify and agree requirements for formal site visits to be held with regard to any planning application listed in this agenda, prior to consideration of the application.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Chairman informed Members that for the duration of the coronavirus pandemic, no member site visits would be conducted, as had been decided at the Group Leaders’ Meeting of 24 June 2020. Therefore, any planning application deferred for a site visit by an Area Planning Sub-Committee would be automatically referred to the District Development Management Committee (DDMC) for determination.

 

There were no formal site visits requested by the Sub-Committee on the applications before the Committee on this meeting’s agenda.

 

Regarding the planning applications the Committee had referred for site visits at the Area Planning Sub-Committee South meeting of 3 June 2020, members would have to decide whether these applications would either be referred up to DDMC or brought back to the next Plans South on 29 July 2020 for consideration and determination. This was with the exception of planning application EPF/2486/19 (5 Staples Road, Loughton), as the applicant had appealed to the Planning Inspectorate against non-determination. Therefore, this application could only be reconsidered at the next Plans South meeting on 29 July, and any comments made by members would be reported back to the Planning Inspectorate.

 

After discussion members agreed that planning applications EPF/1317/19 (Trevelyan House, Goldings Hill, Loughton) and EPF/1680/19 (30 York Hill, Loughton) should also come back to the meeting on 29 July for consideration and determination.

 

However, members asked planning officers to provide more detailed information to that which had been provided in the original reports with additional site photographs, since members were of the opinion the original reports and meeting presentations had not been sufficient.

 

The Development Management Service Manager, A Marx, replied that it was the intention of officers to provide further site photographs or a video for members to view before the next meeting.

The scheme by reason of its location and height would result in an intrusive feature and would cause significant light pollution for neighbouring properties contrary to polices DBE 9 of the Adopted Local Plan and alterations, and DM9 and DM10 of the Submitted Version Local Plan and the NPPF.

 

Way Forward – reduce the security pole to 2.5m in height and remove the floodlight.
