Grant subject to conditions


Conditions / Reasons:


As per report (Item 3d) and the amended and additional conditions set out below:


6.         Before commencement of the development hereby approved, a surface water sustainable drainage system (SuDS) shall be designed and submitted to the Local Planning Authority for approval in writing. The system shall accommodate the run-off from all impermeable surfaces including roofs, driveways and patio areas on the approved development such that no additional or increased rate of flow of surface water will drain to any water body or adjacent land and that there is capacity in the installed drainage system to contain below ground level the run-off from a 1 in 100 year rainfall event plus 30% on stored volumes as an allowance for climate change as set out in the Technical Guidance on Flood Risk to the National Planning Policy Framework. Infiltration rates for soakaways are to be based on percolation tests in accordance with BRE 365, CIRIA SuDS manual C753, or a similar approved method. In the event that a SuDS compliant design is not reasonably practical, then the design of the drainage system shall follow the hierarchy of preference for different types of surface water drainage system as set out at paragraph 3(3) of Approved Document H of the Building Regulations. The drainage system shall be designed to remain safe and accessible for the lifetime of the development, taking into account future amenity and maintenance requirements.


Reason:     In order to ensure that the drainage arrangements are appropriate and in accordance with Policy ENV3 of the Local Plan Review 2016-2036 Part One: Planning Strategy for the New Forest District outside of the National Park and the New Forest District Council and New Forest National Park Authority Strategic Flood Risk Assessment for Local Development Frameworks.


10.       The first floor balcony privacy screens in the north and south elevations of the approved dwelling shall be obscurely glazed in accordance with details that shall have first been approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority and shall be retained as such in perpetuity.


Reason:    To safeguard the privacy of the adjoining neighbouring properties in accordance with Policy ENV3 of the Local Plan 2016-2036 Part One: Planning Strategy for the New Forest District outside of the National Park.
