INFORMATIVES
1. Your attention is drawn to the safety benefits of installing sprinkler systems as an integral part of new development. Further information is available at www.firesprinklers.info.

2. You are advised that the Council will expect the following measures to be taken during any building operations to control noise, pollution and parking:
(a) Work that is audible beyond the site boundary should only be carried out between 08:00hrs to 18:00hrs Monday to Friday, 08:00hrs to 18:00hrs Saturday and not at all on Sundays or Bank Holidays;
(b) The quietest available items of plant and machinery should be used on site. Where permanently sited equipment such as generators are necessary, they should be enclosed to reduce noise levels;
(c) Deliveries should only be received within the hours detailed in (a) above;
(d) Adequate steps should be taken to prevent dust-causing nuisance beyond the site boundary. Such uses include the use of hoses to damp down stockpiles of materials, which are likely to generate airborne dust, to damp down during stone/slab cutting; and the use of bowsers and wheel washes;
(e) There should be no burning on site;
(f) Only minimal security lighting should be used outside the hours stated above; and
(g) Building materials and machinery should not be stored on the highway and contractors' vehicles should be parked with care so as not to cause an obstruction or block visibility on the highway.
Further details of these noise and pollution measures can be obtained from the Council's Environmental Health Services Unit.
In order to meet these requirements and to promote good neighbourliness, the Council recommends that this site is registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme - www.ccscheme.org.uk/index.php/site-registration.

3. Notwithstanding any permission granted under the Planning Acts, no signs, devices or other apparatus may be erected within the limits of the highway without the express approval of the Highway Authority. It is not the policy of the Highway Authority to approve the erection of signs or other devices of a non-statutory nature within the limits of the highway.

4. The permission hereby granted shall not be construed as authority to obstruct the public highway by the erection of scaffolding, hoarding or any other device or apparatus for which a licence must be sought from the Highway Authority Local Transportation Service.

5. The permission hereby granted shall not be construed as authority to carry out works on the highway. The applicant is advised that a Section 278 Agreement (Highways Act 1980) is required with the Highway Authority before any works are carried out on any footway, footpath, carriageway, verge or other land forming part of the highway.

6. The developer is reminded that it is an offence to allow materials to be carried from the site and deposited on or damage the highway from uncleaned wheels or badly loaded vehicles. The Highway Authority will seek, wherever possible, to recover any expenses incurred in clearing, cleaning or repairing highway surfaces and prosecutes persistent offenders. (Highways Act 1980 Sections 131, 148, 149).

7. The Developer would be expected to instruct an independent transportation data collection company to undertake the monitoring survey for the travel plan. This survey must conform to a TRICS Multi-Modal Survey format consistent with the UK Standard for Measuring Travel Plan Impacts as approved by the Highway Authority. To ensure that the survey represents typical travel patterns, the organisation taking ownership of the travel plan will need to agree to being surveyed only within a specified annual quarter period but with no further notice of the precise survey dates. The Developer would be expected to fund the survey validation and data entry costs.

8. A standard fee will be charged for input to, and future monitoring of, any Travel Plan

9. The applicant is advised that as part of the detailed design of the highway works required by the above conditions, the County Highway Authority may require necessary accommodation works to street lights, road signs, road markings, highway drainage, surface covers, street trees, highway verges, highway surfaces, surface edge restraints and any other street furniture/equipment.

10. The use of a landscape/arboricultural consultant is considered essential to provide acceptable submissions in respect of the above relevant landscaping condition.

11. The applicant is advised that advertisement consent would be required for the signage and advertisements indicated on the approved plans.


137 12/01973/OUT - LAND PARCEL AT INHOLMS, HAROLDSEA DRIVE, HORLEY
RESOLVED that planning permission be REFUSED on the following grounds:

1. The proposed development, by virtue of its location within the Rural Surrounds of Horley, would represent an inappropriate form of development, harmful to the openness and rural character of the locality. The proposal is therefore contrary to policy Hr36 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005 and the National Planning Policy Framework 2012.

2. The proposal, by virtue of the direct loss of a protected oak tree of significant visual amenity and the potential damage to a protected oak tree located on adjoining land from construction activity, the proposed development is contrary to policies Pc4 and Ho9 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005.

3. The proposal fails to provide an agreed contribution towards the provision and improvement of local infrastructure and facilities in Horley, contrary to policy Hr3 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005.

4. The proposal fails to secure affordable housing, either on or off-site. This is contrary to policy Ho2 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005 and policy H3 of the South East Plan 2009.

INFORMATIVE
1. Should the applicant provide suitable legal documentation to secure infrastructure contributions and affordable housing, the Council would not contest the third and fourth reasons for refusal.

138 12/02207/F - PILGRIMS COURT, 15 - 17 WEST STREET, REIGATE
RESOLVED that planning permission be REFUSED on the following grounds:

3. You are advised that the Council will expect the following measures to be taken during any building operations to control noise, pollution and parking:
(a) Work that is audible beyond the site boundary should only be carried out between 08:00hrs to 18:00hrs Monday to Friday, 08:00hrs to 13:00hrs Saturday and not at all on Sundays or any Public and/or Bank Holidays;
(b) The quietest available items of plant and machinery should be used on site. Where permanently sited equipment such as generators are necessary, they should be enclosed to reduce noise levels;
(c) Deliveries should only be received within the hours detailed in (a) above;
(d) Adequate steps should be taken to prevent dust-causing nuisance beyond the site boundary. Such uses include the use of hoses to damp down stockpiles of materials, which are likely to generate airborne dust, to damp down during stone/slab cutting; and the use of bowsers and wheel washes;
(e) There should be no burning on site;
(f) Only minimal security lighting should be used outside the hours stated above; and
(g) Building materials and machinery should not be stored on the highway and contractors' vehicles should be parked with care so as not to cause an obstruction or block visibility on the highway.
Further details of these noise and pollution measures can be obtained from the Council's Environmental Health Services Unit.
In order to meet these requirements and to promote good neighbourliness, the Council recommends that this site is registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme - www.ccscheme.org.uk/index.php/site-registration.

4. The applicant is encouraged to provide renewable technology within the development hereby permitted in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

5. You are advised that a charge relating to the following infrastructure contributions has been secured through a planning obligation associated with the permission for the sum of 2653.73.

On commencement of development, notice should be sent to the Planning Authority in writing or email to planning.applications@reigate-banstead.gov.uk advising that works have started. The sum described above is payable within a period of 28 days from commencement of development. Failure to pay the infrastructure contribution may result in legal action being taken against the developer and/or owner of the land.

6. The essential requirements for an acceptable communication plan, as required by Condition 6 above, are viewed as:
(i) how those likely to be affected by the site's activities are identified and how they will be informed about the project, site activities and programme;
(ii) how neighbours will be notified prior to any noisy/disruptive work or of any significant changes to site activity that may affect them;
(iii) the arrangements that will be in place to ensure a reasonable telephone response during working hours;
(iv) the name and contact details of the site manager who will be able to deal with complaints; and
(v) how those who are interested in or affected will be routinely advised regarding the progress of the work.
Registration and operation of the site to the standards set by the Considerate Constructors Scheme (www.ccscheme.org.uk/) would help fulfil these requirements.

135The addendum circulated provided an update on matters arising after the agenda was published.

136The Committee considered an application for construction of a class A1 use retail food store of 14,666 sqm (GEA), gymnasium, multi storey car park (563 spaces), general townscape improvements and associated works.

The Committee had deferred consideration of this item at its meeting on 16 January 2013 to seek further legal advice, as set out in the report before the Committee.

Before opening the debate, the Chairman referred to various papers and information circulated about the application, which some members may have seen. He reiterated the importance to all members, that they should only have regard to the planning merits of the application and not to any other extraneous considerations.

The Monitoring Officer confirmed this advice. Members often had to balance various considerations, but in respect of planning the committee operated in a quasi-judicial manner and should only have regard to planning related issues.
(Notes:
Councillor Finch declared a non-pecuniary interest in this application.
In accordance with the Constitution, Councillor Broad asked for it to be recorded that he voted in favour of the recommendation, and Councillor Finch asked for it to be recorded that she voted against the recommendation.)
137The Committee considered an application for the erection of 50 residential dwellings (use class C3), new vehicular access, open space, play space and landscaping.(Note: Councillors Miller and Schofield declared a non-pecuniary interest in this application.)

138The Committee considered an application for the erection of an apartment building comprising two one-bedroom and three two-bedroom units with associated vehicle parking, cycle parking and bin storage.

An unaccompanied site inspection was undertaken in respect of this application.

A local resident made representations against the application and the agent spoke in its favour.

Reasons for refusal were proposed and seconded.
139The Committee considered an application for the demolition of the existing 20 unit temporary accommodation building and the new construction of 19 self contained flats, together with a small meeting room/office space and associated parking and landscaped gardens.
(Note: Councillor Crome declared a disclosable pecuniary interest in this application and left the meeting during its consideration.)
140The Committee considered an application for demolition of existing property and erection of 2 three storey dwellings.

An unaccompanied site inspection was undertaken in respect of this application.

Reasons for refusal were proposed and seconded, but rejected upon the vote
141The Committee considered an application for the construction of a new building containing eight classrooms and two larger teaching spaces, together with ancillary facilities
142The Committee considered an application for the erection of a block of two two-bedroom flats together with car parking and amenity areas.
143The Committee considered an application for construction of a small car park area within the allotment site with a crushed concrete surface.
(Note: Councillor Farrer declared a non-pecuniary interest in this application.)
144The Committee considered an application for the construction of all weather safety paving adjacent to the play / climbing equipment located in the school playfield.

The Committee sought clarification on the actual surface of the play area which would be paved, as this was unclear from the diagrams provided.

Officers undertook to clarify this in consultation with the Chairman and ward members.

(Note: Councillor Farrer declared a non-pecuniary interest in this application.)
145Members reiterated comments raised at the last meeting, expressing a wish for details of the Method of Construction statement in applications to be imposed as a condition rather than simply as an informative.

It was noted that officers had already begun to put this into practice and the Development Quality Manager undertook to review what other steps could be taken to ensure that any building works were appropriately controlled to minimise disruption and disturbance, and to ensure that any breaches could be properly enforced.
