1. Application – 18/01089/FUL: Erection of 17 apartments (2no 1 bedroom and 15 no 2 bedroom), parking, landscape and associated works. Site: Land Adjacent To Aldermaston Road And Boundary Place  Tadley RG26 4QA

Some Members felt that there could be limited daylight to the apartments due to the proposed dwelling being located so near to a row of well-established Oak Trees and were concerned about the preservation of the Oak Trees long term.

 

Members referred to the recent appeal decision (ref APP/H1705/W/18/3200851) dated the 5th February 2019 where the site was located within Sector G of the Detailed Emergency Planning Zone (DEPZ).  The appeal against refusal of the planning application was dismissed as the Inspector found that 'the proposal would adversely impact on the functioning of the emergency plan in the event of an incident through adding to existing pressures on resources to respond to an incident'.  It was concluded that the proposal for three dwellings conflicted with Local Plan Policy SS7 and the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF)  ...  view the full minutes text for item 55/18
