Why do planning matters matter?
A simple answer is because the purpose of planning laws is to ensure that, as far as possible, all of us can live in our homes in peace and security; with our neighbours, our community and with our environment.

So, if you want to build or extend a house, planning laws should ensure that you end up with something fit for purpose, that for example has adequate off-road parking or that any potential risk of the property flooding is properly assessed and if required measures put in place to deal with that risk.

if you are a neighbour, planning laws should ensure you are not plunged into darkness by a proposed development nor have your privacy invaded by it overlooking your private amenities.

The planning process will assess the safety of any proposed vehicular access and make recommendations as required.

Development on green belt will be avoided and works in a conservation area closely controlled.

Trees making an important contribution to the street scene can be protected and surveys ordered where protected animals eg bats may be put at risk.

So where do you turn for information to avoid pitfalls in dealing with what are often complex issues?

The internet is the obvious first thought, but you may be overwhelmed by the mass of information. I think approaching Amber Valley Borough Council, Department of the Environment and Planning; Tel: 01773 841571 should be top of your list. Their Case Officers have both the professional training and the local knowledge and are very ready to share it with you, whether you are considering a building project yourself or have a concern about a proposed development.

A word of warning: Planning Law does not give you the right to a view, nor will it protect you from a perceived drop in the value of your property, neither is AVBC able to get involved in boundary disputes, which are strictly civil matters.

The Parish Council are not professional planners, but dealing with about 30 planning applications every year, have a wealth of experience and local knowledge, which they are happy to share.

If you would like the opportunity to have an informal chat about an existing or proposed planning application, then please contact the parish clerk with your details.

The Parish Council reviews all applications, which are normally discussed at our monthly meetings, and you would be welcome to attend, prior to submitting a response taking into account the views of local residents.

Responses by Parish Council to Planning Applications

The Parish Council's planning subgroup carefully review every application made for planning permission for developments within Quarndon Parish (around 20 each year). They examine the full-scale plans and accompanying documents and make site visits and speak to applicants and neighbours as appropriate. The subgroup's recommendations are then put before the full Council which decides on the response to be sent to Amber Valley.

Planning decisions are normally made within six weeks of submission by the professionally qualified planners in Amber Valley's Planning Department with a published target date for determination 'under the Delegated Powers'. Decisions may be delayed as planners discuss issues concerning the application, perhaps as a result of responses from interested parties eg the Parish Council/members of the public/Department of the Environment/Highways etc. The planners may ask for revision of the application. In these cases there will be a revised target determination date due to 'an extension of time agreement'. If the application is contentious, as with the application to build 400 houses off Kedleston Road, the application goes to AVBC's Planning Committee who, with advice from their professional planning staff, will proceed to determine the application.

Applications considered at the Parish Council meeting held on 26 February 2018

AVA/2018/0123 25 The Common Change of use of former Coach House to residential resubmission

PC response No objections/comments.

AVBC A decision is anticipated by 28/Mar/18 under the Delegated Powers.

Applications considered at the Parish Council meeting held on 22 January 2018

AVA/2017/1389 7, Woodlands Lane Extensions and alterations to dwelling

PC response No objections/comments.

AVBC The application was approved on 8/Feb/18

AVA/2018/0058 154 Burley Lane Construction of new detached dwelling

PC response All windows stipulated as having obscure glass should remain so in perpetuity, in order to protect the amenity and privacy of the residents of the neighbouring properties.

AVBC The application was approved on 13/Mar/18, obscured glass being included in the conditions.

AVA/2017/1383 Land Adj. to The Croft Somme Road Proposed dwelling and detached garage

(resubmission of lapsed planning permission AVA/2013/0678)

PC response We note that the Flood Risk Assessment was last revised 6 years ago and wonder whether in view of the evolving appreciation of the risks posed by climate change, a review of the flood mitigation measures contained therein is needed.

AVBC The application was approved on 13/Feb/18

AVA/2017/1384 Land Adj. No. 7 Somme Road Proposed dwelling and detached garage

(resubmission of lapsed planning permission AVA/2013/0678)

PC response We note that the Flood Risk Assessment was last revised 6 years ago and wonder whether in view of the evolving appreciation of the risks posed by climate change, a review of the flood mitigation measures contained therein is needed.

AVBC The application was approved on 20/Feb/18

Applications considered at the Parish Council meeting held on 18 December 2017

AVA/2017/1310 129A Burley Lane Single storey side extension to the east of the existing dwelling, a linking connection to the existing garage in the form of a flat roof single storey, with roof lantern, flat roof porch to the existing entrance, extension to the existing garage to form first floor room in the roof and new car port

PC response The Parish Council are not happy about the large two-storey extension running along the eastern boundary with the neighbouring property. Whilst there are no windows overlooking them, the neighbours will experience a loss of amenity and light due to the mass of the proposed development so close to their property

AVBC The application was approved on 28/Feb/18

Application(s) considered at the Parish Council meeting held on 27 November 2017

AVA/2017/1203 Fields Farm Church Road Side/rear extensions, attic extension/conversion and attached garage/workshop/annex

PC response Quarndon's fledging Neighbourhood Plan identifies the need for family homes in the village, for preference affordable 2 or 3 bed properties. This proposed development of an existing 4 bed, 3 bathroom home cannot be said to meet the community's needs by any stretch of the imagination, furthermore the building is in the Green Belt and proposes increasing the footprint by approximately two and a half times. Finally, the site is clearly visible from Kedleston Hall, Park & Gardens and such a massive construction with extensive swathes of glass on ground, first and second storeys would have a permanent adverse effect on the setting of a heritage site of the highest National significance.

AVBC The application was approved on 13/Feb/18

Application(s) considered at the Parish Council meeting held on 30 October 2017

AVA/2017/1147 Snowdrop Cottage 80 The Common Demolition of existing Dwelling and Construction of Replacement Two Storey Dwelling.

PC response Although this site is in both the Green Belt and Quarndon Conservation Area we have no objection as the proposed development is appropriate in both scale and character and transforms a poorly designed 2-bed dwelling to a fully functional 3-bed, 2-bathroom property in accord with the perceived need for this level of accommodation in the village.
