19/00034/HCC3 - COUNTY CONSULTATION - REGULATION 3 - ENGINEERING WORKS AND ALTERATIONS TO EXISTING SEGREGATED CYCLEWAY/FOOTWAY TO PROVIDE TWO WAY DEDICATED UNGUIDED BUSWAY (ECLIPSE) AND NEW SIGNALLED JUNCTION (PHASE 1B) WITH ROWNER ROAD (AMENDMENT TO PLANNING PERMISSION 13/00323/HCC3)

Former Railway Land North & at Rowner Road Bridge
pdf icon PDF 121 KB

The purpose of this report is to consider a planning consultation received from Hampshire County Council for an amended scheme for engineering works and alterations to the existing segregated cycleway/footway to provide a two way unguided busway and a new signalled junction with Rowner Road, whilst retaining the existing road bridge.

 

Hampshire County Council is the applicant and Local Planning Authority for determining the planning application. Gosport Borough Council has been consulted as part of the application process as the proposal is located in this Borough.

 

Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report of the Head of Planning and Regeneration requesting that consideration be given to a planning consultation received from Hampshire County Council for an amended scheme for engineering works and alterations to the existing segregated cycleway/footway to provide a two way unguided busway and a new signalled junction with Rowner Road, whilst retaining the existing road bridge.

 

In answer to a Member’s question, it was clarified that the length of the ramp would be 250 metres into the existing cycleway.

 

Members welcomed the proposal included the retention of the bridge and requested that the response be amended to reflect the Council’s strong support for the proposal. .

 

RESOLVED: That Board strongly support and welcome the proposal and raise the following comments:

 

 

Insufficient information has been provided to demonstrate that the recommendations within the Road Safety Audit (RSA) have been fully implemented, or where this is not possible that sufficient justification has been provided to demonstrate that the use of the busway by cyclists and buses would not result in unacceptable risks, including the following issues:

 

- Provision of a vehicle restraint system on the east boundaries of the proposed ramp; 

 

- That the proposed measures to protect cyclists, given the existing bridge parapet is identified as lower than the required standard for cyclist use, are adequate;

- The narrowing of the 3m shared use footway across the bridge to approximately 2metres at the junction is acceptable noting the requirements of the RSA; and

 

- That the recommendations in the RSA relating to pedestrians or cyclists falling off the wing wall or down the steep bank to the rear of the footway have been addressed.

 

It is also recommended that conditions are imposed in relation to ecology mitigation and enhancements, landscaping, tree replacement, contamination, a construction management plan, traffic management measures, details of the entrance/exit barriers and other related conditions previously imposed on application 13/00323/HCC3 where appropriate.

Report of the Head of Planning and Regeneration pdf icon PDF 299 KB

Schedule of planning applications with recommendations.

(grey sheets pages 1- 38)

 

Minutes:

                                                                                                                                       

The Head of Planning and Regeneration submitted a report on applications received for planning approval setting out the recommendation.

 

 

RESOLVED:  That a decision be taken on each application for planning approval as detailed below:

 

18/00473/FULL - DEMOLITION OF EXISTING DWELLING AND ERECTION OF A TERRACE OF 5NO. THREE BEDROOM DWELLINGS WITH ASSOCIATED PARKING (as amended by plans received 17.12.2018)

 

Consideration was given to the report of the Head of Planning and Regeneration requesting that consideration be given to planning application 18/00473/FULL.

 

Paula Lamb was invited to address the Board. She advised that she had a private objection to the development as she was a first floor resident in the neighbouring property.

 

She felt that the scale was an overdevelopment and that the proposal was higher than what had previously been submitted. She advised that the proposal would impact the streetscene and that the area was a community hub and very busy, particularly with the nursey opposite.

 

She advised that the proposal would take 100% of the light from her property in the stairs, hall, bathroom and kitchen of her property and that this impact should be taken into consideration. She advised the Board that the consideration of the previous application had noted the need to consider the impact on her property and depth of the proposal would overshadow the garden.

 

She advised the Board that the proposed parking plan relied on residents reversing into spaces and that the manoeuvrability for anything larger than a medium car wouldn’t be achievable. Concern was expressed that the access way was popular with pedestrians and cyclists and that additional use would be dangerous and that the parking spaces did not meet the width desired by the SPD.

 

In answer to a Member’s question, the Board was advised that the proposed building was slightly taller than the library but that it was considered to be in keeping with the area.

 

Members expressed concern about the parking proposal for the site and the access to it and felt that manoeuvrability would be tight but acknowledged that there were no objections from the Highway Authority.

 

Members felt that a site visit would be necessary to consider the proposed application and to view the site from the front and the rear.

 

RESOLVED: That planning application 18/00473/FULL be deferred for a site visit.

 

18/00506/FULL ERECTION OF A TWO STOREY REAR EXTENSION 12 Grafton Close  Gosport  Hampshire  PO12 4GD   

 

Consideration was given to the report of the Head of Planning and Regeneration requesting that consideration be given to planning application 18/00506/FULL.

 

Councillor Mrs Westerby advised that she would be reading a representation on behalf of Helena and David Whitstone of 5 Chatham Close.

 

She advised the Board that the application was for the erection of a two storey rear extension and that there were issues raised within the report of the planning officer when a previous application for a pergola had been submitted. The Board was advised that the previous report referred that contamination was unlikely due to the size  ...  view the full minutes text for item 38.
