Reason The Local Planning Authority does not consider the premises suitable for subdivision into separate dwelling units by reason of lack of space, amenity and car parking requirements. 05 The proposed outbuilding shall only be used for purposes incidental to the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse as such and shall not be used for any trade or business purposes. Reason To ensure that no adverse effect upon the amenities of the neighbourhood may arise out of the proposed development. 06 Prior to construction works on the proposed outbuilding hereby approved desk-based Coal Mining Risk Assessment shall be submitted and approved by the Local Planning Authority. The desk-based assessment should demonstrate how coal mining risks have been considered in the context of the proposed development and how the developer will ensure that the proposed development will be safe and stable. Subject to the conclusions and recommendations of the above document, an intrusive Coal Mining ground investigation may be required. If this is required it shall be carried out and a report detailing the conclusions and recommendations before works commence on the outbuilding. Any mitigation works required shall be carried out before works commence on the outbuilding. Reason To ensure the site is not affected by land instability issues from historic coal mining works in the area. Informatives 01 Nature conservation protection under UK and EU legislation is irrespective of the planning system and the applicant should therefore ensure that any activity undertaken, regardless of the need for any planning consent, complies with the appropriate wildlife legislation. If any protected species are found on the site then work should halt immediately and an appropriately qualified ecologist should be consulted. For definitive information primary legislative sources should be consulted. Furthermore, vegetation removal should be undertaken outside of the bird breeding season, March to September inclusive. If any clearance work is to be carried out within this period, a nest search by a suitably qualified ecologist should be undertaken immediately preceding the works. If any active nests are present, work which may cause destruction of nests or, disturbance to the resident birds must cease until the young have fledged. Positive and Proactive Statement During the determination of the application, the Local Planning Authority worked with the applicant to consider what amendments were necessary to make the scheme acceptable. The applicant agreed to amend the scheme so that it was in accordance with the principles of the National Planning Policy Framework.
