20/01162/FUL Erection of single storey front, side and rear extensions and first floor extension. Jalna Badgeworth Lane Badgeworth: The application site is within the present Green Belt area along the upper part of Badgeworth Lane approaching the A46. However it is proposed, through the Local Plan, to remove this part of Badgeworth Lane from the Green Belt allowing it to form part of the settlement area of Shurdington service village. In theses circumstances para.145 (c) of the NPPF would not apply.

The Parish Council has no objection to this application based on the size and character of other surrounding dwellings and the number of extensions/alterations along this part of Badgeworth Lane (for example, the adjacent dwelling has a large side/rear extension etc. Application 13/00566/FUL refers).

The Parish Council has consulted the immediate neighbours who have raised no objections to the application.

20/01101/TPO  TPO 375 G1 Three trees as part of this group. Two Horse Chestnut & one Lime Tree as described in work specification to carry out Crown Reduction Works height reduction of 3m and spread by 2m. Cutting back to strong suitable secondary growth.

20/00886/FUL  Erection of a single detached dwellinghouse with associated parking and landscaping.  The Old Orchard Land East Of Badgeworth Manor, Badgeworth End, Badgeworth

The Parish Council raises no objection to this planning application for the following reasons:

  1. The PC has consulted those residents whom it feels may be most affected by this proposed dwelling and none have raised objections.
  2. Although the application site is within the Green Belt and therefore the proposed dwelling may be regarded as inappropriate development, it falls within one of the exceptions listed in para. 145 of the NPPF which allows limited infilling in villages. Also, the development would not cause encroachment into the countryside ( the site is enclosed and part of the curtilage of an existing property) and neither would it decrease the Green Belt gap between Gloucester and Cheltenham.
  3. The proposed dwelling would fill the only gap (infill) which exists in the present linear development which runs along Church Lane to the development site. Badgeworth is and historically has been a village which falls within that referred to in para.145 of the NPPF.
  4. The PC considers that despite the changes which have taken place in local and national planning policies the Planning Appeal decision made in 1974 would still apply today.

In raising NO OBJECTION to this application the PC would, nevertheless, request that the planning authority ensures that the design and exterior finishes to the proposed dwelling are sensitive to the surrounding area of the Green Belt and other residences. Consideration may also need to be given to additional tree planting around parts of the proposed dwelling.
