OBJECT for the following reasons DO NOT OBJECT


On the 9th November 2015 we had a meeting with the planning officers at Rushcliffe Borough Council to find out the up to date information on phase two.
So as of 9-11-15
The variation, on the outline planning consent, for the removal of the bridge that runs from Newton Gardens, over the dual carriage way and the old A 46 has yet to be decided. If it has to go before the planning committee it is very doubtful it will happen this year. As well as the Parish Council objecting to its removal, Highways England, Notts County Council Highways and residents have also objected. The Borough Council has also received letters of support from residents. Copies of all comments received can be viewed on the RBC website.
Details of the outline application granted planning permission in Jan 2014 can be viewed on the RBC website, planning reference 10/02105/OUT. In some of these documents you can get the impression that when phase two finally starts the Parish Council will have no say in anything as it will be sorted out by a management company. The Borough Council has assured us that they will work closely with the Parish Council as the development moves forward to discuss matters relating to long term management of certain aspects of infrastructure including the proposed Community Hall. The Legal agreement that accompanies the permission requires the formation of a Community Partnership Board (CPB) which will consist of;
1. 1 or 2 representatives of the owner.
2. 1 or 2 members of the Parish Council.
3. A Borough Council planning officer.
4. Notts County Council highways officer.
5. 1 or 2 Rushcliffe Borough Councillors.
6. 1 Notts County Councillor
The terms of reference for the CPB shall be drawn up by the CPB to include, but not limited to, reviewing traffic implications. The CPB could therefore discuss issues such as management of public areas e.g. community centre, allotments etc and has to be up and running prior to the occupation of the first dwelling. Money is set aside by the agreement for the provision and support of any work necessary to be undertaken by the terms of reference.
Newton Nottingham LLP can keep applying for variations on the original outline consent for as long as it wants to. As much as we would like the planners to say “enough is enough just get on with it” that will never happen. Unfortunately this leave us at the mercy of Newton Nottingham LLP as to whether phase two starts in the near future or is many years away.
If Newton Nottingham LLP don’t submit any further variations, the issue of the bridge is settled and the land has been sold then we will move onto reserved matters. At this point the planners will go out to consultation again and both the Parish Council and all the residents will be able to have an input.
Reserved matters is when very detailed plans are submitted by the builder. This will cover everything from the layout of the roads to the colour of a roof and everything in between. Reserved matters application may be submitted on a phased basis or for the site as a whole.
