P73/18TO AGREE MINUTES OF THE LAST MEETING

The minutes of the last meeting had been circulated and it was RESOLVED that they be duly signed as a correct record.

P74/18TO DISCUSS THE APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AS LISTED

Already commented on: -

55727/001 Prune 2 Beech trees T1 & T2 on plan, as follows; 1. Crown lifting to allow no more than 3.5 metres clearance from ground level over the garden. 2. Crown reduction not exceeding 1.5 metres to give a more balanced look to trees. In addition, tree T2 displays a compression fault near the base of the main stem which could lead to a fracture and hence seriously affect the health of the tree. Crown reduction would alleviate the weight bearing down on the fault. 3. Crown thinning by 30%. Finished height of the trees will be approx. 12.6 metres and crown spread will be approx. 3.5 metres - 1 New Road

CPC consider the application should be referred to the arboriculturist with regard to the proposed tree works

25288/004 Proposed erection of 29 affordable dwellings with associated parking, access, and landscaping (Amended and additional plans and information received 14/05/18, 24/05/18, 11/06/18, 18/06/18, 20/06/18, and 25/06/18) - Land north of, 102 Downhouse Road, Catherington

CPC should have been on the consultee list but were omitted however they were able to submit comments direct to the planning officer – comments were as below:-

Clanfield Parish Council strongly OBJECT to this proposal on the same grounds as previous applications for the site - there is still major concern with regards to the access which is on the bend of the road which
at present is still 40 mph speed limit, there are major concerns regarding visibility and site lines causing extreme danger to road users – both those exiting the proposed development and those travelling along
Downhouse Road. The Council would particularly emphasise the importance of the existing substantial
hedgerow along Downhouse Road and believe that its retention would be impossible given the sight line requirements of a new access road. It is considered that there is a sustainability concern as the proposed
development is not close to any facilities/amenities and cars would have to be used to go anywhere. In
addition to these previous comments the proposed development is outside the Policy Boundary and within the Local Gap and it is considered that due to other recent and proposed developments in both Clanfield and Horndean there is no demand for the development of this site.

Site visits were carried out by the Chairman and Assistant Clerk.
