|Conditions / Reason for Refusal:
The development hereby permitted shall be commenced before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.
In order to comply with the requirements of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
The permission hereby granted shall relate to the area shown outlined in red on the approved site plan and the development shall only take place in accordance with the submitted details and specifications and as shown on the approved plans (as set out below)
(Drawing number 20/2996/001/B, 20/2996/002/B, 20/2996/003/B and 20/2996/004/F received 27/05/2021.)
To define the permission and for the avoidance of doubt.
The materials to be used in the construction of the external surfaces of the development hereby permitted shall match those used in the existing building.
In order to ensure a satisfactory appearance in the interests of visual amenity and in accordance with Core Strategy Policy CS28.
According to the Environment Agency’s flood maps, the site is at risk of surface water flood risk. Further information about flood risk is available on the gov.uk website under the flood warning information service. As a minimum I would recommend that flood resilient construction is used and that the floor level of the proposed extension should be no lower than that of the existing building to minimise the risk of flooding.
It is noted the applicant is proposing to dispose surface water runoff to soakaways. The suitability of this option should be proven by percolation tests in accordance with BRE Digest 365 and the drainage will be subject to Building Regulations approval. Soakaways should be sited a minimum of 5m from buildings. Other discharge points for the surface water should be identified if the percolation tests prove to be ineffective.
