Email to Counselors after decision copy to Transition Tynedale
Ref13/00992/VARYCO – VARIATION TO CONDITION 6 OF APPROVED PLANNING APPLICATION A/2010/0203 TO GAIN FLEXIBILITY IN THE GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF THE DESIGN AND ACCESS STATEMENT AND MASTERPLAN LAYOUT, TO PROVIDE FOR REDUCED AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND TO REMOVE 20% RENEWABLES REQUIREMENT. REMOVAL OF CONDITION 8 TO REMOVE NEED FOR CODE LEVEL 3, LAND WEST OF A1068 AND SOUTH OF MARKS BRIDGE, AMBLE, MORPETH, NORTHUMBERLAND.
Dear Councellors North area planning committee.
Members at the last Transition Tynedale meeting agreed that I should write to you to gain your views on the above planning permission.
I note that the above planning permission has been granted and would like to hear your comments on the above decision regarding.
“REMOVAL 20% RENEWABLES REQUIREMENT”
“REMOVE NEED FOR CODE LEVEL 3”
“REDUCED AFFORDABLE HOUSING”
In the Northumberland Core Strategy Preferred Options Consultation Document the proposed code level4, the above decision is in my opinion a retrograde step.
I have also noted that in the North area planning committee 4th July Minutes.
“In summary the Chair said that Members needed the details in order to know the scheme and acknowledged that there would be confidential items to look at. He said that the principle did not only apply to the current application but to a whole raft of applications that would be coming to Committee in the next 4 months and he did not want to set a precedent.”
In your opinion has a precedent been set?
I look forward to your attention
