1. Application - 20/00922/FUL:Erection of 4 no. dwellings; with associated garaging, parking, turning, landscaping, private amenity space, and access. Site:  Land At Pyotts House Pyotts Hill Old Basing

 

The Committee considered the report set out on pages 77 to 123 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 and referred to the two previous refused applications 18/03568/FUL and 15/02303/FUL on the site.   In addition the latter application was also dismissed at appeal by the Inspector who noted the significance of the Scheduled Ancient Monuments (SAM) that could be defined by its age, survival and condition. The Inspector noted that Historic England;

Concern was raised that two of the dwellings would be located 5 metres and the other two dwellings would be 3 metres away from the SAM.

 

Park Pale which was believed to mark the boundary of Basing Medieval deer park was within and along the eastern boundary of the site and would be incorporated into the curtilage of the residential gardens.  This concerned Members as they believed it would have a detrimental impact on the land and it would neither preserve nor enhance the character and appearance.

 

Some Members highlighted that plot 4 was in the same position as a previous refused application 15/02303/FUL which the Inspector did not object to.  It was highlighted that the applicant had included a Heritage Management Plan and that the County Archaeologist considered that the development was sufficiently set back from the monument to not be an overriding objection and Historic England also had raised no objection to the proposals.

 

However, most Members disagreed and felt that the SAM was a valuable heritage asset and the proposed application did not provide adequate protection.
