19/00049/FULL - ERECTION OF 1NO. THREE BEDROOM DWELLING WITH ASSOCIATED CAR PARKING (as amended by plans received 27.07.20)

Land Adjacent To 36 Palmerston Way  Gosport  Hampshire  PO12 2LZ


Consideration was given to the report of the Development Manager requesting that

consideration be given to planning application 19/00049/FULL.


The Borough Solicitor and Monitoring Officer read a deputation from Mr Connolly, the applicant as follows:


I write in repose to my planning application 19/00049/FULL being brought forward to the Regulatory board.


The land to the rear of 35 Kennedy Crescent is a building plot purchased in the 1960’s by the previous owners as an investment. The plot was used as an extension to their own garden. The plot has always had its own original title deeds and is not a sell off of garden space.


Some local residents had issues with the original plans, I met with these residents and discussed in detail any and all issues they had. Subsequently, I had meetings with the Planning Officer and my architect. I had the plans redrawn, ensuring all residents and planners issues were fully addressed.

We decided to alter our design to fit in with properties already in existence on the western end of Palmerston Way


The original planned property has been reduced in size, its proportions now fit in with many other properties on Palmerston Way. The Rear garden is approximately 180m2, large for any house. There are wide side pathways to either side of the property, many houses on Palmerston Way do not have this feature as they have built right up to neighbouring properties. The front garden will be laid to Shrubs and plants along with Ample parking as approved by Transport and Traffic in June 2019. The planned property sits in line with the other properties on the northern side of the Palmerston Way.


Natural England advised against all planning consents for new builds, until mitigation could be found to offset the nitrates issue within the Solent area. Each Application required a full assessment to see how much offset was required. In my case 0.71kgN was required. Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust (HIWWT) have purchased a farm at Duxmore on the Isle of Wight. This farm will be closed and will used for wildlife habitation only. They have allocated me 1kgN of  ...  view the full minutes text for item 14.
