(PLEASE SEE BELOW AN EXTRACT FROM THE PRE-APPLICATION ADVICE SOUGHT FROM EAST LINDSEY DISTRICT COUNCIL)
The proposed site sits on the outskirts of the large village of Partney as defined in SP1 of the East Lindsey Local Plan. The site is outside of the developed footprint of the village within open countryside. The proposed site has an operational agricultural use and is made up of modern agricultural buildings.
The Council are keen to support employment use sites that come forward within the large villages providing that they are located so that they easily connect to the road network and are integrated into their setting in terms of layout and landscaping. To ensure the long-term viability of farm holdings, the Council will also support additional uses however the uses should be subordinate to the farm use and not jeopardise the future operation of the farm.
Partney is located on the strategic road network nd this site sits on the southern side of the village in very close proximity to the A158 which supports the criteria defined in SP13 of the East Lindsey Local Plan. The proposal is also considered to be an additional use to the existing farm however it is paramount that any proposals are considered to be farm diversification and remain subordinate to the farm use so they do not jeopardise the farm business in accordance with SP13 of the East Lindsey Local Plan. Paragraph 83 of the National Planning Policy Framework also states that planning decisions should enable the sustainable growth and expansion of all types of business in rural areas through the conversion of existing buildings whilst encouraging the development and diversification of agricultural and other land-based rural businesses.
Confirmation has been received that a transport statement will be required with any application to enable the Highways Authority to assess the comparison in vehicular movements for the existing and proposed use. The factors would determine whether highways improvements are required on Hardings Lane being only narrow in width. The transport statement would generally include an audit and appraisal of the following:
•Existing site information
•Baseline traffic data
•Existing site use and means of access
•Proposed land use and scale of development
•Proposed means of access
•Person trip generation and distribution of trips by mode of transport
•A qualitative and quantative description of the proposed travel characteristics of the proposed development
•Proposed improvements to site accessibility by sustainable modes of travel
•Proposed parking and servicing strategy
•Residual vehicle trip impact
•Transport implications of construction traffic (if there are specific local difficulties identified)
•If the development site has a current use or an extant planning permission, the net level of change in traffic flows that might arise from the development is calculated and considered
Aside from the above, the Highways Authority have confirmed that the access would be required to be upgraded to an LCC specification.
With regard to the submission of a noise impact assessment, the Environmental Health Officer has requested further information as follows:
1. What will be window/door layout of the proposal be?
2. More specific information about the use of each building ie. B1, B2 or B8. For example an industrial
use is more likely to require an assessment than a storage use.
3. Will HGV’s need to access the site and if so during what times and how often?
Please note that all advice is given at your request and is without prejudice to any decision made on the receipt of a formal planning application at a later date. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the department.
The farm is situated on Hardings Lane, 140 meters to the north of the A158. The buildings location within the farmyard can be identified on the attached plan.
