  1. PLANNING APPLICATIONS

 

A list of planning applications received since the previous Committee meeting had been circulated

 

1.1       Application No : 17/01149/FUL Location: Field East of the Nursery Medburn Northumberland Proposal: Proposed detailed planning application for 62 dwellings including associated access, infrastructure and open space.

 

OBJECTION: –

 

Ponteland Town council have significant concerns about the scale of proposed development in the area that will have a detrimental impact on the character of this hamlet.

Once again the proposal is contrary to Policy MBH2 of the Castle Morpeth District Local Plan as the site is neither brownfield nor infill and is not within the curtilage of existing properties. The construction of 62 further dwellings and associated access in this location will have a detrimental impact on the agricultural/rural and largely undeveloped character present in this part of the settlement, contrary to Policy H15 of the Castle Morpeth District Local Plan. Medburn is a small settlement without any services, only a limited bus service and poor paths for cyclists and pedestrians. The construction of 62 more dwellings in addition to the recently approved construction of at least 82 new dwellings will have an overwhelming and adverse impact on this small settlement and the C345, which is a narrow country lane and the only access road and we note the residents objections and concerns.
