Supplemental Report to Planning Application 10/20/0996 - Hob Lane Farm Barns, Blackburn Road, Turton pdf icon PDF 652 KB

Revision to date referred to in Condition No.11 pursuant to planning application 10/20/0996

Minutes:

At the January Committee meeting, Members supported the resolution to approve full planning application for change of use of 2 x barns at Hob Lane Farm to a single attached dwelling with integral garage, including building works. Planning permission was granted in relation to the proposed development subject to the conditions listed in paragraph 4.1 of the main report.

 

With regards to Condition No.11, it had been recognised by the Council’s Ecological advisor, they provided the incorrect wording in relation to further bat surveys and when the conversion works commence. Paragraphs 3.5.54 of the main report make reference to “If conversion works have not commenced by February 2021 Members are recommended to condition the submission of an updated survey… and Condition No.11 in paragraph 4.1supported this by referring to March 2021. The Council’s advisor has statedthis should have been February 2022, as the submitted report (Bat activitySurvey section 2.9) indicates that the survey results will be valid for 2 years inthis case.

 

The February 2022 timescale is applied so that if work has not started by the

beginning of the Y2 survey season, the updated work can be commissioned in

a timely manner.

 

RESOLVED – That the change in the date of Condition No.11 of Planning Application 10/20/0996 be noted.
