228. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION.

 

The Chairman outlined the Parish Council’s policy on the 10 minutes allocation for public participation.

 

Planning Application No. 06/1064/OUT

Proposal: Revised Outline Application for 17 no. Self –Build Housing Plots and the Creation of a Country Park/Local Nature Reserve.

Location: Land in the Vicinity of Bettys Close Farm, Ingleby Barwick.

 

Mr Harrison introduced himself as the Chair of Roundhill Action Group, which has in the region of just under 100 residents.  The group which is constituted and registered with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, formed when the previous application for this site was submitted in the later part of 2005.

 

The group is still strongly objecting to the proposal and is now actively working both with the local Ward Councillors and rural agencies.

 

It was noted that the group has submitted its individual objections to S.B.C., which include housing development in designated green wedge and issues such as the car park, kick about area and general design.

 

The Chairman Mrs Machin thanked the members of the public for attending the meeting to make their views known and highlighted that residents should submit their letters to S.B.C. individually.

 

 

Chairman……………………………

                                                                                                                        3 of 6

 

229. PLANNING APPLICATION NO. 06/1064/OUT

PROPOSAL: REVISED OUTLINE APPLICATION FOR 17 NO. SELF BUILD HOUSING PLOTS AND THE CREATION OF A COUNTRY PARK/LOCAL NATURE RESERVE.

LOCATION: LAND IN THE VICINITY OF BETTYS CLOSE FARM, INGLEBY BARWICK.

 

The Chairman began by briefly outlining the proposal.

 

The Clerk informed that the Parish Council had objected to the previous proposal planning application no. 05/3047/OUT on the following grounds:

 

The site is designated green wedge and should not be used for housing development.

It is understood that this particular site is already protected under the Local Plan Policy EN7, which should be enforced.

Access to the proposed 19 houses and country park would be via Nevern Crescent and Ramsey Gardens, which are residential roads.  Traffic generated

from this proposal may include buses for visitors and school parties and the existing narrow roads are not provided to the correct design standard to accommodate this.

The 19 properties would be in addition to the agreed housing allocation for the outline planning approval for Ingleby Barwick and there are already signs of strain on the road infrastructure.  It is understood that a ‘Traffic Model’ is to be developed to look at the impact of the housing number already agreed.

 

A general discussion took place on the proposal and the following points were raised:

 

-          Green Wedge The land is designated green wedge and should not be

      used for housing development.                  

 

-          Self-Build Housing Plots There are a number of self-build plots still

      available at Riverview.  The current provision for executive housing is

      adequate with no requirement for additional plots.

 

-     Narrow Residential Roads The existing roads are narrow and not

      suitable for the additional traffic which would be generated.

 

-          Entrance One of the strips of land at the entrances into the site is

not registered with Land Registry and it is therefore speculated as to who actually owns the strip of land.

 

Chairman…………………………….

                                                                                                                  4 of 6

 

It was noted that the site is recognised as a flood plane.

 

The proposed car park would attract cars when people should be encouraged to be on foot.

 

If approved the amount of money generated from the proposal could be in excess of £4 million pounds.

 

Concerns were raised that the area would be difficult to police.

 

Disruption to wildlife is also a factor to be considered.

 

It was noted that the hogweed within the site should be removed by the land owner regardless of any development.

 

It was noted that CPRE have proposals for a Heritage Park along the River Tees from Stockton to Yarm, which is gradually being chipped away at i.e. the Banks Development.  It was questioned as to what efforts were being made by S.B.C. to provide a Country/Heritage Park.

 

Concerns were raised that letters had been submitted in favour of the application from addresses which do not exist or are spelt wrongly.

 

It was noted that if S.B.C. refuse the application the matter could go to Central Government for consideration and possible approval.

 

It was noted that the Parish Council has the power to make comments however the final decision still rests with S.B.C.

 

It was reiterated that S.B.C. need to progress funding for the Country/Heritage Park working with all interested parties.

 

It was noted that the RoundHill Action Group is prepared to be pro-active on the matter and will hopefully link in with the two other action Groups set up in Ingleby Barwick.

 

RESOLVED that the Parish Council object to the planning application on the grounds as previously submitted i.e. development of green wedge, narrow residential roads, traffic generated as well as the lack of need for self-build housing plots.

230. PLANNING APPLICATION NO. 06/1076/FUL

PROPOSAL: SUBSTITUTION AND REPOSITIONING OF HOUSE TYPES AND APARTMENTS FOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF 418 NO. DWELLING UNITS, RENUMBERING OF PLOT NUMBERS AND NEW ELECTRICITY SUB STATIONS.

LOCATION: VILLAGE 5, BROOMWOOD, INGLEBY WAY.

 

The Parish Council considered all of the information provided in respect of planning application no. 06/1076/FUL.

 

RESOLVED that the Parish Council reiterate their original comments on the development in terms of the level of density, the traffic which would be generated and the pressure on services.

 

231. HILLBROOK DEVELOPMENT OFF BROOM HILL AVENUE, VILLAGE 5 INGLEBY BARWICK – PROPOSED STREET NAMES.

 

The Clerk reported that she had received correspondence from S.B.C. informing that Bryant Homes require nine new street names for Village 5.  The suitable names from the Ingleby Barwick field names 1850 list have now been exhausted, at the most they could maybe use another three.  This development requires 8/9 names and Bryant Homes are proposing a horse theme, names as noted below:

 

Teal Road – Named after the race horse that was trained in Ingleby Barwick and won the 1962 Grand National

Barley Fields – Old English phrase for ‘Ingleby’ and ‘Barwick’

Turner Drive – Turner family used to own the land which now forms Ingleby Barwick

Lee Drive – Graham Lee (Grand National Champion) lives in Ingleby Barwick

Revelley Way – Mary Revelley from Teesside has trained more than 2,000 winners

Thompson Way – ‘Jockey’ Arthur Thompson won Grand National on ‘Teal’

Grump Drive – ‘Trainer’ of ‘Teal’

Hillbrook Road – Development Sales Name.

 

The Parish Council’s comments are requested.

 

The information had been circulated to Members for their observation prior to the meeting.
