Minutes:

RECONSIDERED APPLICATIONS FOLLOWING SITE VISIT

A/2014/0086/F-Redevelopment of vacant lands for an unattended 24 hour operating filling station (incorporating new canopy, 4 fuel dispensers, new underground fuel tanks, upgraded associated site works and site boundaries plus a "fuel cash and carry" sales building and car wash. (Transport assessment received). Lands adjacent to Rossdowney Road and Crescent Link Junction.

 

The Head of Planning presented the above application, details of which had been previously circulated to Members. She provided a brief update on the status of the application and advised that further consultation had taken place with DfI Roads on the 10 March 2019. She further advised that after material consideration and in line with planning policy, the Officer’s recommendation remained to refuse planning permission for reasons as outlined within the report.

 

Mr T McIvor, MCI Development addressed the Committee. The main purpose of his address was to seek a deferral of the application from the Committee.

 

The Chair clarified that proposals of any deferral could only be received from Elected Members of the Planning Committee.

 

Councillor Jackson reminded Members that the Planning Committee had recognized issues of road safety within the application when it was first presented. He explained that Members’ concerns were forwarded for consultation with DfI Roads and after consultation reports from Transport NI had justified these concerns. He stated that whilst he had no issue with a deferral being granted, he would have issue if road safety concerns were ignored.

 

Mr McIvor responded that whilst he appreciated that Council had safety concerns, he would like the opportunity to fully review all papers associated with the application as he had only recently taken over this application.

 

Ms McShane, Kevin McShane Ltd Transport Consultants, addressed the Committee in support of the application.

 

Alderman McClintock expressed she would not support a deferral at this stage. She stated that assumptions had been made that an approval may have been granted had there not been a site visit and highlighted that she felt any petrol station on the site would have significant footfall and would add to the traffic congestion on the road.

 

Councillor Jackson highlighted the impact the application could have on the likelihood of accidents occurring in the area given that there were already areas of safety concern on the Crescent Link.

 

In response, Ms McShane explained that only a very small proportion of the cars travelling on the Crescent Link would make the right hand turn into the petrol station. She advised the modelling example which she had carried out had indicated that the application would have little impact on the risk of accidents in the area.

 

In response to a question from Councillor D Kelly, Ms McShane advised that there would be no retail unit on the site and that fuel sales for coal would be scaled back.

 

Councillor McGuire advised that no agents are allowed at site meetings.

 

In response to a question from Councillor D Kelly, Ms McWilliams (DfI Roads) advised that a closer look at the intensification of the movement on the turns from the Crescent Link had prompted DfI Roads to change their recommendation for this application. She further advised that the concerns of DfI had not been addressed by the applicant and no design solutions which would address the concerns had been submitted. The Head of Planning highlighted that the applicant had a number of years to submit appropriate design solutions and that none remain unconsidered by DfI Roads.

 

In response to further questioning from Councillor D Kelly, Ms McWilliams stated she could not comment if the very lengthy late information submission by Ms McShane was misleading. She clarified that the yellow box option outlined was not suitable.

 

Alderman McClintock voiced concerns that DfI had approved the application at first and highlighted the difficulties faced by Members to accept a changed recommendation.

 

Councillor Logue concurred with Alderman McClintock’s comments and suggested that DfI Roads consider that improvements were needed in the Crescent Link area as a whole.

 

In response to a question from Councillor Logue, Ms McWilliams commented that development on the Crescent Link had been developer led. She indicated that the land on which the application stood was white land and that the zoned land adjacent to the 2 roundabouts on the Crescent Link would be a more suitable location for a development.

 

Councillor Jackson moved seconded by Councillor Hastings to refuse planning permission for reasons as outlined within the report.

 

The outcome of the vote; For 9, Against 0, Abstentions 2. The proposal was carried.

 

The Committee

LA11/2018/0614/O-Site for single storey dwelling at lands adjoining 216 Tamnaherin Road, Derry.

 

The Head of Planning presented the above application, details of which had been previously circulated to Members. She advised that the application had been returned to the Committee following a vote to move against the Officer’s recommendation and approve planning permission at the Committee meeting held on 6 March 2019. She provided an update on the status of the application and informed Members that a site visit had taken place. She further advised that following evaluation of the elements of the application against relevant planning policy the Officer’s recommendation remained to refuse planning permission for reasons as outlined within the report.

 

MsMcIlvar (Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application.

 

On a point of accuracy, Alderman McClintock stated she had not been in attendance during the site visit.

 

Councillor McGuire noted no difference in the status of the application since it had been presented to the Committee on 6 March 2019.

 

Councillor Hastings stated after the site visit, he felt the proposed application fitted in well with the surrounding buildings.

 

In response to a question from Councillor D Kelly, the Lead Legal Services Officer reminded Members that the Planning Appeals Committee clearly stated that a pathway cannot form part of a linked road frontage. He advised that a further report would be brought to the Committee surrounding this policy.

 

Councillor McGuire moved, seconded by Councillor Hastings to move against the Officer’s recommendation and approve planning permission, subject to the conditions as outlined within the report.

 

Voting was as follows; For 10, Against 0, Abstentions 1. The proposal was carried.

 

The Committee        

 

Resolved       that planning application LA11/2018/0614/O be approved planning permission, subject to the conditions as outlined within the report.

 

NEW APPLICATIONS FOLLOWING SITE VISIT

A/2008/0236/O-Site for residential development at Elagh Road / Buncrana Road.

The Senior Planning Officer presented the above report, a copy of which had been previously circulated to Members. She provided a brief summary of the application and following consideration of the facts against relevant planning policy provided a recommendation to refuse planning permission for reasons as outlined within the report.

Mr Burke (Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application.

In response to a question from the Chair, Mr Burke commented that existing houses on Elagh Road would need to be provided access if Elagh Road was closed.

In response to a query from Councillor McKnight, Mr Burke stated that he had not been in contact with 3rd parties in relation to purchasing lands as he assumed these would be purchased under a Compulsory Purchase Order by DfI Roads.

In reply to concerns raised by Councillor Hastings, Ms McWilliams (DfI Roads) confirmed that a consultation event would be hosted by DfI Roads on Wednesday 26 March 2019 in relation to the A2 scheme.

Councillor Hastings re-iterated his concerns that developers were facing continued problems with developments in this area due to issues with plans for the A2 scheme and questioned when clarity would be provided to them.

In response to questions from Councillor D Kelly, Ms McWilliams clarified that as shown in the May 2018 DfI Roads emerging design, it is intended that Elagh Road will be diverted via Elagh Business Park to be adopted as is Elagh Business Park.  This will be subject to public consultation.

In response to a question from Alderman McClintock, the Principal Planning Officer clarified that the Planning Department would not recommend that access be redirected through Elagh Business Park.

The Head of Planning highlighted that the land on which the application was situated was white land which had not been zoned for housing in DAP 2011.

The Senior Planning Officer confirmed that although various meetings had taken place within the last 3 years with 3rd party land owners, no agreement of an alternative access had been reached. Council do not currently have an application for the H1A zoned housing land.  She raised further concerns that the diversion through Elagh Business Park may not happen as this would be subject to a separate statutory consultative process through abandonment/stopping up order.

In response to a question from Councillor McLaughlin, Ms McWilliams DfI (Roads) confirmed that, in the absence of the Northern Ireland Assembly, a date for commencement of construction of the A2 cannot be confirmed until the vesting and direction orders are in place and funding is secured.

Councillor McLaughlin commented that she found it difficult to make a decision on this application when all information was not available.

In response to queries from Councillor D Kelly, the Lead Legal Services Officer explained that he was unsure if the applicant would be entitled to compensation from DfI (Roads) if the application was refused planning permission. He clarified that they would not be entitled to compensation from Council.

In response to a query from Councillor Reilly, the Head of Planning commented that it would be inappropriate to recommend a deferral of decision to consider any further information from DfI Roads at the upcoming consultation event. She explained that details of road scheme in question would take considerable time to address and she could foresee no great change in the planning position within a 3 month period.

Councillor Hastings said that he had difficulty making a decision given the situation.

In order to maintain the integrity of the Committee, Councillor R McHugh proposed to refuse planning permission for reasons as outlined within the report.  Councillor McLaughlin seconded the proposal and stated that she felt Council had no other option.

The voting was as follows; For 6, Against 3, Abstention2. The proposal was carried.

The Committee

Resolved       that application A/2008/0236/O be refused planning permission for reasons as outlined within the report.

LA11/2018/0698/O-Proposed erection of dwelling and domestic garage. Adjacent to and SE of 61 Woodend Road, Strabane.

The Senior Planning Officer presented the above planning application, details of which had been previously circulated to Members.  He provided an overview of the background to the application and, following material consideration of relevant planning policies including the Development Plan and consultation responses, it was considered that the application had not demonstrated to meet policy requirements and therefore refusal was recommended for reasons as outlined within the report.

The Members received speaking rights from Mr Les Ross, the agent acting on behalf of the applicant.  He outlined reasons to approve the application.

Councillor D Kelly expressed the view that the application was not contrary to planning policy as he had visited the site and felt that the proposal would visually link with existing buildings on the farm. He also said that in terms of the farm business, the site was located on the poorest quality land and this made good business sense.  He therefore was not minded to support the Planning Officer’s recommendation to refuse planning permission for those reasons.

The Head of Planning referred to Policy CTY10 (criterion c) and reminded Members that the term clustering is defined as a group of buildings associated with the farm and is not third party buildings.

Councillor D Kelly moved, seconded by Councillor Hastings not to accept the Planning Officers’ recommendation to refuse planning permission.

The outcome of the vote; For 11, Against 0, Abstention 1.  The proposal was carried.

The Committee

Resolved   that the recommendation to refuse planning application LA11/2018/0698/O be overturned.

Councillor D Kelly referred to Condition no. 2 listed within the report that referred to the following operational hours of the Hippotherapy sessions (10am – 3pm Wednesday to Friday and 10am to 1pm on Saturday); he stated that this was somewhat restrictive and suggested that consideration be given towards an extension of working hours.
