In order to assess the effect of the development on the area and in accordance with UDP Policies ENV1 ‘Green Belt,’ ENV1.2 ‘Development in Areas of High Landscape Value,’ and ENV3.1 ‘Development and the Environment’.

To define the permission and for the avoidance of doubt.
Within 3 months of the date of this permission, the sight lines as indicated on the submitted plan shall be rendered effective by removing or reducing the height of anything existing on the land between the sight line and the highway which obstructs visibility at any height greater than 900mm above the level of the nearside channel of the adjacent carriageway and the visibility thus provided shall be maintained.
To provide and maintain adequate visibility in the interests of road safety.
Within 3 months of the date of this permission, details of a turning facility on site shall be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority and the development shall thereafter be implemented and retained in accordance with the approved details.
To enable a vehicle to enter and leave the highway in a forward gear in the interests of road safety.
Within 3 months of the date of this planning permission, that part of the site to be used by vehicles shall be constructed with either;
a/ a permeable surface and associated water retention/collection drainage, or;
b/ an impermeable surface with water collected and taken to a separately constructed water retention/discharge system within the site.
The area shall thereafter be maintained in a working condition.
To ensure that surface water can adequately be drained and to encourage drivers to make use of the parking spaces and to ensure that the use of the land for this purpose will not give rise to the deposit of mud and other extraneous material on the public highway in the interests of the adequate drainage of the site and road safety.
The Council has determined this application on the basis that the static caravan located on the site is used for respite accommodation for the agricultural worker on site so does not constitute development and has been removed from the description. As such, planning permission would be required should the caravan be used as residential accommodation.
