Cllr Stanyon, Elham Parish Council provided written representation confirming the objection to the application on the grounds that the development is outside the boundary settlement in an area of outstanding natural beauty. He stated that if members were minded to approve the application then he would wish to expect a contribution to lower-cost housing and not executive homes and examine flooding issues.

 

Cllr Stuart Peall, Ward Member spoke against the application highlighting a number of issues; quality of privacy for existing residents, access to light for existing properties, flooding and run off issues, pollution, narrow access road for emergency services, height and position of the proposed development and the wildlife on the site, badgers included.

 

Elizabeth Welch, applicants agent provided written representation informing that they had worked with officers to obtain a positive application and listened to local residents concerns. He explained the history of the site and previous submitted applications and referred to the Places and Policies Local Plan. The development was reduced to just three dwellings due to comments made and to reflect AONB. There is continuous footway to the and from the site. This application is to consider layout and access only. A landscape strategy and landscape and visual assessment have taken place and appropriate mitigation for wildlife. The scheme is well prepared and will provide high quality family sized homes.
