See Responses by Parish Council to planning applications

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 by the Parish Council on 26th November 2018

AVA/2018/1116 10 Montpelier Extension and alteration to existing property. New feature dormer window created to the north and west elevation of the existing property. Erection of raised balcony-deck to the rear of the property. Replacement of the roof tiles, windows and doors.

PC Response The application incorrectly refers to 'a dormer window to the north & west', when in fact the drawings clearly apply to two dormer windows, one to the front (the south) and the other to the rear (the north) of the property. That said the windows will enhance the property. QPC do however, have a concern that the proposed 2.5m deep balcony which is already 1.5m above ground level on the east elevation will, because of the land falling sharply away here, potentially look directly into the first-floor bedroom as well as other rooms of the adjacent property., In order to protect the privacy and amenities of these neighbours, a completely opaque screen should be installed and permanently maintained, the full depth of the east elevation and at least 1.6m above the floor level of the balcony.

AVBC A decision is anticipated by 11 January 2019 under the Delegated Powers.

Applications considered by the Parish Council on 22 October 2018

AVA/2018/0766 24 Woodlands Lane. One New dwelling (The proposal is not in accordance with the Development Plan) Previous approval for the site AVA/2016/0708

PC response The provision of shared access to the site is unclear with the details of a new access on the block plan at odds with that in the Design statement. There is a question about the visibility achievable in view of the high hedge and also the road bend to the south of the vehicular access to the property.

The application is in accordance with neither the Development Plan nor the draft Neighbourhood Plan, whose relevant Policies are referred to below:

The proposed dwelling is only 0.75m from the southern boundary, breaching Policy QH3 and will look out of place on the street scene, exhibiting inappropriate massing on such a small site.

Subsequent to a recent well-supported parish questionnaire and an ONA, Policy QH4 clearly identifies the need for dwellings with a maximum of 2 or 3 bedrooms and Quarndon Parish Council therefore cannot support this application for 4 bedrooms.

Concerns about on-street parking mean Policy QH6 requires parking provision within the curtilage proportionate to the size of the development. On present evidence that is inadequate for the proposed dwelling, furthermore it is even less adequate for the existing property, No. 24, which loses its garage.

AVBC The application was approved on 12 October 2018

AVA/2018/0832 50 Woodlands Lane. Single storey rear extension, new car port, new dormer & enlargement of terrace area with associated works in substitution of previous approval (Office Code: AVA/2017/0001)

PC response No objections/comments.

AVBC The application was approved on 8 October 2018

AVA/2018/0924 228 Burley Lane. Proposed extension to dwelling, 2 bedrooms and en-suite

PC response Quarndon's fledgling Neighbourhood Plan looks for properties to be accessible, to have adequate parking provision and to have a maximum of three bedrooms. This application fails all three requirements. In particular the application refers to a fairly small area of land already used for parking by the two existing properties, Nos 230 and 232, as providing it for this applicant, patently inadequate even for the property as existing. Furthermore the applicant goes on to say that 'there is additional parking available at the Village Hall...' Quarndon Parish Council strongly rejects this suggestion; the Village Hall car park is for persons having business in the village, not for residential parking.

AVBC The application was withdrawn

AVA/2018/1008 82 Church Road. Alterations to front porch area and rear ground floor extension

PC response No objections/comments.

AVBC A decision is anticipated by 12 December 2018 under the Delegated Powers.

Determination on 21.10.18 by QPC Planning Sub-committee

0920 5 Sulley's Field To insert double gates within existing fence

QPC No objections/comments

AVBC A decision is anticipated by 2 January 2019 under the Delegated Powers.

1047 4 Sulley's Field Kitchen extension to the rear together with the formation of balcony over first floor to serve the rear corner bedroom

QPC No objections/comments

AVBC A decision is anticipated by 26 December 2018 under the Delegated Powers.

Applications considered at the Parish Council meeting held on 23 July 2018

AVA/2018/0593 Park Nook Grange, The Common. Demolition of existing UPVC conservatory and entrance porch to front and replacement with new oak framed orangey and entrance porch

PC response The proposed development is in both the Green Belt and Quarndon Conservation Area, however it will enhance the existing property and results in a minimal increase in the overall footprint of the residence. We therefore have no objections.

AVBC The application was approved on 14 August 2018

Applications considered at the Parish Council meeting held on 25 June 2018

AVA/2018/0490 The Old Stables Quarndon Hill Farm The Common. Conversion of Vacant Outhouse into dwelling

PC response This application for a 'barn conversion' is in both the greenbelt and the Quarndon Conservation Area; it follows 3 earlier applications in 2011 & 2012, the last of which was approved, but this approval has lapsed.. This application is similar to the last application but with a new doorway on the North elevation and demolition of a lean-to and new construction to provide bat mitigation amongst other minor changes. The proposed residence conforms with the requirements of the nascent Neighbourhood Plan for the Village of Quarndon and as such we have no objections, but would want the glazing units facing No 78 The Common to have obscure glazing in perpetuity in accordance with the saved policy H12 of the Adopted Local Plan in order to provide privacy and avoid overlooking of windows of other dwellings, in view of the proximity of No. 78 The Common.

AVBC The application was refused on 13 September 2018

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

AVA/2018/0379 168 Burley Lane. Demolition of utility and replacement of two storey extension

PC response No objections/comments.

AVBC The application was approved on 11 July 2018

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.

AVBC Application withdrawn
