Enforcement and possible unauthorised development - Former Lafarge site and adjoining land at Hollybush Lane North, south of North Camp Railway Station pdf icon PDF 632 KB

To consider the Head of Planning’s Report No. PLN1822 (copy attached) which reports on cases of planning enforcement and possible unauthorised development.

Minutes:

The Committee received the Head of Planning’s Report No. PLN1822, which provided an update with regard to the position of the former Lafarge site and adjoining land at Hollybush Lane North, south of North Camp railway station.

 

The Committee was informed that an Enforcement Notice was served in September 2015 in respect of unauthorised material change of use of land to: (a) commercial car spares/car sales use; and (b) storage of scrapped cars; both with associated development comprising construction of bunds, hard surfaces, roads, fences and siting of structures on the land.  This Enforcement Notice was subject to an appeal heard at a Public Inquiry in October 2016.  This appeal was dismissed by two subsequent Inspector’s decisions dated 30th November, 2016 and 23rd August, 2017 and an amended Enforcement Notice took effect from 23rd August, 2017.  This Notice required staged compliance within three months (by 23rd November, 2017), within six months (by 23rd February, 2018) and within twelve months (by 23rd August, 2018).

 

The Committee was advised that the latest inspection of the site was undertaken on 7th August, 2018 as a check on the landowner’s progress towards compliance with the requirements of the principal Enforcement Notice by 23rd August, 2018.  This inspection revealed that, whilst the site was now largely empty, a further site inspection would be needed to ensure all breaches of planning control had been rectified.  The Committee noted the landowner’s request for the Council not to pursue compliance with the terms of the Enforcement Notice in respect of three residual matters.

 

RESOLVED: That

 

(i)

the Head of Planning’s Report No. PLN1822 be noted;

 

 

(ii)

the Solicitor to the Council, in consultation with the Head of Planning, be authorised to pursue prosecution for failure to comply with the requirements of the Enforcement Notice, in the event that, after 23rd August, 2018, the kiosk support structure and scaffolding surrounding the old hopper tower had not been removed; and

 

 

(iii)

the Solicitor to the Council, in consultation with the Head of Planning, be authorised to pursue prosecution in the event that, after 23rd August, 2018, it was considered expedient to pursue failure to comply with any other requirements of the Enforcement Notice.
