BH2021/01031 - Land South of Ovingdean Road - Reserved Matters


1.    The Planning manager introduced the application and noted that the late list informed the committee that revised drawings have been received.


Questions for officers


2.    Councillor Theobald was informed that the online presentation gave a street view of the application site.


3.    Councillor Yates was informed that various finishes and materials will be used on the development, all in keeping with the area.


4.    Councillor Shanks was informed that the 40% of the development will be affordable housing which will be spread across the site.




5.    Councillor Fishleigh noted the homes were nearly finished and the disruption has been horrendous for local residents and neighbours. Councillor Fishleigh requested that the trees on site be saved and native species be used in the landscaping. It was requested that the lighting plan for the site be light pollution aware and the delivery drives who arrive before the site opens in the morning turn off engines and radios.


6.     Councillor Theobald noted the application was refused and approved by the planning inspector at appeal. It was considered by the councillor that the terraced housing design could be improved and that decent trees should be used in the landscaping of the site.




7.    A vote was taken, and the committee voted unanimously that planning permission be granted.


8.    RESOLVED: That the Committee has taken into consideration and agrees with the reasons for the recommendation set out in the report and resolves to GRANT planning permission subject to the conditions and informatives in the report.
