1. Application – 18/01375/FUL: Erection of a new two-storey science block and part-two/part-three storey performing arts block both interlinked at first floor level through a glazed corridor connection with associated hard/soft landscape reconfigurations/improvements and following demolition of existing science buildings; erection of single-storey rear extension to existing dining hall and installation of 3 no. rooflights, alterations to existing windows and doors, roof and render with associated hard/soft landscaping; all in connection with a proposed increase in the overall capacity of the school. Site: Sherfield School Sherfield On Loddon Hook Hampshire

 

The Committee considered the report set out on pages 43 to 75 of the agenda together with the further material set out on the addendum sheet and other matters discussed at the meeting. 

 

The Committee discussed the proposed application.

 

Members were in general support of the design and location of the new buildings, which would be accommodated easily within the large site.

 

The main area of concern was the increase of traffic onto the A33.  It was suggested that any potential future problems in terms of the access points to the school could be resolved by the restriction of vehicles turning right entering and exiting and the use of the nearby roundabout.

 

Some members were perplexed as to the large increase of capacity to 700 pupils when historically the school had not exceeded 454.  Other members stated that although the school would have the capacity for 700 pupils the indication from the applicant was that it was not their current intention.

 

RESOLVED that:  the application be APPROVED subject to the conditions listedbelow and for the following reasons

 

Reasons for Approval

 

1             The proposed development would provide for extended and new facilities to complement the existing school environment and would therefore support an existing and established facility in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (February 2019) and Policy CN7 of the Basingstoke and Deane Local Plan 2011-2029.

 

2             The proposed design of the development would not dominate or compete with the character and appearance of the area, and would not have a detrimental impact upon the visual amenity and character of the surrounding landscape or the setting of the school grounds.  The proposal accords with the National Planning Policy Framework (February 2019), Policies  ...  view the full minutes text for item 65/18
