W/z PC consultation objection. Recommend REFUSAL for the following reasons:

1. The proposal involves backland development served by inadequate road access due to the narrowness of Hamrod Lane and unsatisfactory junction onto main road with existing poor visibility and inadequate sight lines adding to the existing vehicle usage. This coupled with the narrow width of the single track to access plots will present further difficulties for service and emergency vehicles. The associated traffic movements with circa 8 or so spaces proposed will endanger all users. Note; highways observations on red line delineation.

2. Despite amendments from previous application the proposed development does not sit well with existing surroundings and properties in this part of the village and impacts adversely on reasonable enjoyment of occupiers particularly No 5 Hamrod Lane.

3. Concerns are evident in relation to capacity to facilitate surface water runoff and capability of the sewerage system.

4. As per consultation response archaeological investigation of site is essential in this case.

Planning application number: 53/20/00003/DT

Proposal: Variation of Condition 7 of Planning Permission 53/19/00010 (Retrospective application for the change of use of former airfield from a go-kart track to stockpiling of washed stone chippings, the temporary storage of plant and equipment, parking of vehicles and siting of welfare units and alterations to existing access in connection with top-surfacing of highways.) to allow temporary sleeping accommodation for workers on site during the period when carrying out top dressing on the roads.

Update: The Parish Council object to the application for the following reasons:

Development subject of application 53/19/0010 on this site began without the grant of planning permission. Prior to the grant of the conditional consent for the change of use for stockpiling of washed stone chippings and ancillary bits and pieces the Parish Council raised enforcement issues about all aspects of the various planning contraventions on a regular basis, the main use and related activities amid regular objections from local residents concerned with various adverse impacts on surroundings, countryside, main road and access, air pollution and vehicle movements. When retrospective consent was eventually granted this was not without a substantial number of conditions designed to manage the development, the environment and the operations and preclude specific activities. The condition no.7, one such, was imposed for very justifiable reasons and that situation has not changed. Designed to preclude the spread of even more of a mix of uses on the open airfield and to avoid any doubt as to the extent of the permission is clear. The site is within the designated countryside where residential development is strictly controlled within the Sedgemoor Local Plan provisions. Albeit a residential area already exists on land within the same ownership within a short distance and recently the subject of a Certificate of Lawfulness and which has the capacity to house the number of units proposed whilst achieving all stated in the application reasons for need. Residents and the Parish Council do not therefore see a need for an extension of residential accommodation onto this site and the expansion further outside the village envelope. Given this the application as submitted and information supplied to support the proposal shows no justifiable evidence of need specific to the site in an inappropriate rural location with existing residential opportunity so close by.

The site is not well linked to the village and facilities with a distinct lack of pedestrian/ cycle routes, leaving access along a fast stretch of main road. The site is poorly related close to this busy and fast moving stretch of the A372 and can be adversely affected by the proximity of the airfield runways still in use.

The site has no public sewerage or sanitation facilities available to serve accommodation and occupants.
