Proposal: Demolition of existing glasshouse and associated horticultural structures and erection of 9 no. C3 residential dwellings and 4 no. commercial workspace suites (class E(g)), including access landscaping and associated works.

Address: Hillside Nursery Bury Common Bury RH20 1NR

BPC Decision: Objects: ‘BPC welcomes the development of the redundant Hillside Nursery and is satisfied that the quantum of development, its scale and the use can be appropriately accommodated on the site. It is, however, not yet satisfied that the site layout or the buildings meet the aspirations of the village in terms of characterisation and detail. In the view of BPC, this project should be considered as still in a design development stage, and we would ask that is be withdrawn for further discussion. Should the applicant decide not to withdraw it, we would strongly object to the application being approved and would urge that this application be considered by the Planning Committee which we would hope would allow us to make representations on behalf of the village to that Committee in person

Reference: SDNP/21/04688/FUL

Proposal: Demolition of existing dwelling and garage and erection of replacement dwelling, garage with tennis court.

Address: Stane Lodge Bury Gate Bury RH20 1HA

BPC Decision: Bury Parish Council objects to this application based on sustainability grounds. The applicant has not provided any reasoning as to the need to demolish what appears to be a habitable building and replace with another. We believe the applicant should consider that 50% of a building’s lifetime footprint is in the initial construction. The National Planning Policy Framework states clearly that the purpose of the planning system is to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development and the council cannot see how these plans achieve this.

Address: The Arun Churches Vicarage , Church Lane, Bury, RH20 1PB

Proposal: Notification of intention to fell 3 no. Ash trees (quoted as T1-T3).

BPC decision: Neutral: The Council agrees with the principle of tree felling on the grounds of public safety but is concerned about these proposals given the evidence of dieback appears to be in the early stages and that insufficient consideration has been given to the possible recovery of the trees. The Council therefore requests that the applicant considers a second opinion or leaves the trees for reinspection in 12 months time.

Planning Authority Decision: Pending

 

Reference SDNP/21/02197/HOUS & LIS

Date: 3rd June 2021

Address: Hollow Farm The Street Bury RH20 1PA

Proposal: Demolition of existing garage, proposal of a double bay, single storey garage/outbuilding and space provided for the parking of 2 no. vehicles.

Parish Council Decision: Hollow Farm is significant for two reasons. It is a Grade II listed building and it is also the first building to be seen when arriving into the village from its northern end. The close proximity of the proposal to the original farmhouse makes it a part of the composition of a group of which the listed building should be the dominant structure. The application is for an amendment to the previously approved proposal which achieved that compositional role more successfully than this amendment.

There is no issue with the principle of demolishing the existing garages, retaining the plant room element and rebuilding and extending the existing space as shown in the proposed plans. Had this proposal shown this new footprint under a simple clay tiled hipped roof (more in the manner of the approved scheme), it is likely it would have received renewed support.
The issue raised by this new application is the gabled elevation. The relationship of the proposed two storey gable to the listed farmhouse seems arbitrary and out of scale. This is a proposal in which the wall rather than the roof is now dominant and it is that coupled with its proximity to the listed building which creates a sense of competitive discomfort.
The hipped composition of the approved scheme is very much more preferable to the new proposal and the Parish Council urges the applicant to reconsider this strategy so that it could be in a position to support it. It would welcome an amendment to the roof form and it would encourage the simplest possible shaping of a hipped roof that signals an agricultural structure subordinate to the farmhouse but confident in its role in the group

Reference: SDNP/20/00759/HOUS

Date: 8th March 2021

Proposal: Proposed rear extension and conversion of existing double garage into a gym and guest accommodation, along with reinstating former outdoor swimming pool.

Address: Black Dog And Duck The Street Bury RH20 1PA

Parish Council Decision: Neutral

Bury Parish Council voted to remain neutral on this application subject to the following conditions:

1. Electrochromic glass is used for any building glazes in order to reduce light emission and conserve Bury’s Dark Night Skies.

2. A lighting impact assessment is submitted detailing measures on how any outside lighting will be reduced in order to conserve Bury’s Dark Night Skies.

3. The use of the gym and guest house remain ancillary to the main dwelling.

The Council is concerned about light emission from this property as it resides in the heart of the village and any light spill will have a significant negative impact on neighbouring houses.

Local Planning Authority Decision: Approved

 

Reference: SDNP/20/05752/CND

Date: TBC

Proposal: Erection of outbuilding to provide home office and glazed link. Variation of condition 2 of planning permission SDNP/20/01479/HOUS. Changes to approved drawings- amended setting out and roof design.

Address: White Webbs Cottage Church Lane Bury RH20 1PB

Parish Council Decision: The parish council objects to the application as the proposal would result in an ad hoc addition which is unsympathetic to, and detracts from, the architectural integrity of the host dwelling. It would also extend the dwelling further to its boundary thereby creating a terracing effect that would be detrimental to the street scene which is characterised by buildings punctuated by generous spacing.
