RESOLVED – Approved subject to the conditions highlighted in the Directors Report and the additional conditions in the Update Report:

 

Land Contamination:

Prior to the commencement of development hereby approved, the developer must:

A. submit proposals for additional gas monitoring, according with the gas generational potential of the site and end use, to the Local Planning Authority for written approval;

B. once the proposals described at (a) have been approved by the Local Planning Authority, the additional gas monitoring shall be implemented and the findings submitted to the Local Planning Authority for approval, including an appropriate assessment of risks to both human health and the wider environment, from contaminants in, on or under the land (including ground gas); and

C. if unacceptable risks are identified, a remedial options appraisal and detailed remediation scheme should be presented, along with an updated CSM. No deviation shall be made from this scheme without the written agreement from the Local Planning Authority.

 

REASON: To ensure that all reasonable steps have been taken to identify contamination at the site in accordance with Policy 8 of the adopted Blackburn with Darwen Borough Local Plan Part 2.

 

Prior to the occupation of the development hereby approved, two copies of a comprehensive Validation Report shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The Validation Report shall demonstrate effective remediation in accordance with the agreed remediation scheme and updated CSM. All the installed remediation must be retained for the duration of the approved use, and where necessary, the Local Planning Authority should be periodically informed in writing of any ongoing monitoring and decisions based thereon.

 

REASON: To ensure that all reasonable steps have been taken to identify contamination at the site, that the risks it presents have been appropriately assessed, and that the site can be made 'suitable for use', as such, does not pose a risk to future users of the site or the wider environment in accordance with Policy 8 of the adopted Blackburn with Darwen Borough Local Plan Part 2.

 

Following assessment of the applicant’s latest drainage strategy, received 29th April 2022, United Utilities consider that two conditions are deemed necessary to ensure the proposal remains consistent with the requirements of Policy 9 of the Development Plan:

 

Prior to the commencement of development, details of a sustainable surface water drainage scheme and a foul water drainage scheme shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

The drainage schemes must include:

(i) An investigation of the hierarchy of drainage options in the National Planning Practice Guidance (or any subsequent amendment thereof). This investigation shall include evidence of an assessment of ground conditions and the potential for infiltration of surface water in accordance with BRE365;

(ii) A restricted rate of discharge of surface water agreed with the local planning authority (if it is agreed that infiltration is discounted by the investigations). In the event of surface water discharging to the public surface water sewer, the rate of discharge shall be restricted to 5 l/s;

(iii) Levels of the proposed drainage systems including proposed ground and finished floor levels in AOD;(iv) Incorporate mitigation measures to manage the risk of sewer surcharge where applicable; and

(v) Foul and surface water shall drain on separate systems.

 

The approved schemes shall also be in accordance with the Non-Statutory Technical Standards for Sustainable Drainage.

Prior to occupation of the proposed development, the drainage schemes shall be completed in accordance with the approved details and retained thereafter for the lifetime of the development.

 

REASON: To promote sustainable development, secure proper drainage and to manage the risk of flooding and pollution, in accordance with the requirements of Policy 9 of the Blackburn with Darwen Borough Local

Plan Part 2.

 

Prior to occupation of the development a sustainable drainage management and maintenance plan for the lifetime of the development shall be submitted to the local planning authority and agreed in writing.

The sustainable drainage management and maintenance plan shall include as a minimum:

a. Arrangements for adoption by an appropriate public body or statutory undertaker, or, management and maintenance by a resident’s management company; and

b. Arrangements for inspection and ongoing maintenance of all elements of the sustainable drainage system to secure the operation of the surface water drainage scheme throughout its lifetime.

 

The development shall subsequently be completed, maintained and managed in accordance with the approved plan.

 

REASON: To ensure that management arrangements are in place for the sustainable drainage system in order to manage the risk of flooding and pollution during the lifetime of the development, in accordance with the requirements of Policy 9 of the Blackburn with Darwen Borough Local

Plan Part 2.

 

Highways:

The applicant provided an amended site plan that addresses the elements set out within suggested Condition 9 of the main report (changes to access arrangements and parking for PTW). The revised details have been assessed by the Highway team and are considered to be acceptable. On that basis condition 9 is no longer necessary and should be omitted, whilst condition 2 should be revised to reflect the latest submission. Condition 2 shall now read as:

 

2. Unless explicitly required by condition within this consent, the development hereby permitted shall be carried out in complete accordance with the proposals as detailed on drawings:
