The Head of Planning submitted plans deposited as applications to develop land under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.


19/0355/FUL Erection of 18 no bungalows with associated access and landscaping works at Land at Hemlington Lane, Middlesbrough for Mr K Shannon


Full details of the planning application and the plan status were outlined in the report. The report contained a detailed analysis of the application and analysed relevant policies from the National Planning Policy Framework and the Local Development Framework.


The purpose of the application was to seek planning consent for the erection of 18 bungalows with associated highway works, landscaping and infrastructure on the area of land located to the east of Hemlington Lane in Middlesbrough.


The Development Control Manager advised that the proposed density of the site had been reduced from the original 22 bungalows to 18 bungalows.


The site layout included a single vehicular entrance into the site from the southern end of Hemlington Lane. The layout proposed the dwellings and highway access be provided around the central open space area. It was planned that the existing landscape strip and established trees would be retained along the southern boundary of the site, between the A174 and to the west of the site, between the existing properties along Hemlington Lane.


The proposed development planned to provide detached dormer bungalows that were considered to be a high-quality design and which would reflect the existing mixture of house types within the vicinity.  The site layout had been designed to provide properties focussed around a central open space with other landscape strips to the rear of existing properties and around the site entrance. 


The site was designated green wedge within the Local Plan and was contrary to the provisions of that policy, however, consideration was given to the sites planning history.  Members were advised that in 1993, an application to use the land for residential development was refused by the Planning and Development Committee, but was later allowed at appeal by the Planning Inspectorate. In 2000 and 2015, outline permission had been granted for residential development by the Planning and Development Committee. The outline applications had provided no specific detail of the number of dwellings and no conditions had been attached to the approval, setting out the number of dwellings


Whilst all of the previous permissions had lapsed, the matter of the site being in the green wedge had previously been considered and it was envisaged that, due to the position of the site, its development would not unduly affect the wider purpose of the designated green wedge.


Following consultation, a total of 11 objections had been received from residents at 7 properties and an objection had also been received from a Ward Councillor. The objections and concerns were based on a number of matters, including the density of the development, the quality of the development, impact on the character and appearance of the area, loss of green space, impact on ecology and wildlife, traffic issues such as congestion and  ...  view the full minutes text for item 21/18
