03 No above ground works shall take place until there has been submitted to and approved, in writing, by the Local Planning Authority a scheme of hard and soft landscaping works for the site, which shall include any changes in ground levels and also accurately identify spread, girth and species of all existing trees, shrubs and hedgerows on the site and indicate any to be retained, together with measures for their protection which shall comply with the recommendations set out in the British Standards Institute publication “BS 5837:2012 Trees in relation to design, demolition and construction.” 

Reason – In order to enhance and soften the appearance of the development in the interests of visual 

amenity and the character of the area. 

04 All changes in ground levels, hard landscaping, planting, seeding or turfing shown on the approved landscaping details shall be carried out during the first planting and seeding season (October – March inclusive) following the commencement of the development or in such other phased arrangement as may be agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority. Any trees or shrubs which, within a period of 5 years of being planted die, are removed or seriously damaged or seriously diseased shall be replaced in the next planting season with others of similar size and species, unless the Local Planning Authority agrees in writing to a variation of the previously approved details. 

Reason – To ensure the appropriate implementation of the approved landscaping scheme in the interests of visual amenity and the character of the area. 

05 Any new boundary planting shall be planted a minimum of 1 metre back from the highway boundary and any visibility splay. 

Reason – To ensure that the future outward growth of the planting does not encroach upon the highway or interfere with the passage of users of the highway, to preserve the integrity of the highway and in the interests of highway safety. 

06 Prior to the commencement of any above ground works, precise details of the manufacturer and types and colours of the external facing and roofing materials to be used in the construction of the development hereby permitted shall be submitted to and agreed, in writing, by the Local Planning Authority. Such materials as may be agreed shall be those used in the development. 

Reason – Materials are a visually essential requirement to ensure a quality development and insufficient information has been provided within the application.

14 The development shall not be occupied until such time as the driveway parking areas and garaging indicated on the approved plans, have been constructed and laid out for parking. The parking and garaging areas shall be retained in this approved form at all times and shall not be used for any purpose other than the parking of vehicles related to the use of the development unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority. 

Reason – To ensure that on-street parking of vehicles in the adjoining streets does not occur, in the interests of highway safety.

Reason – In the interests of sustainable development and to ensure that run-off water is avoided to minimise the risk of surface water flooding.

Reason – To preserve and enhance the biodiversity of the site. 

17 Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 3, Schedule 2 Part 2 Class A of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 (or any Order revoking and re-enacting that Order with or without modification), other than those shown on the approved drawings, no provision of fences, walls or other enclosures shall be erected forward of the front elevations of the dwellings hereby approved except in accordance with details that shall previously be approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. 

Reason – In the interests of visual amenity and landscape impact. 

18 In the event of unexpected ground conditions being encountered at any time during construction, all site works at the position of the suspected contamination shall stop and the Local Planning Authority and Environmental Health Department notified. The following minimum requirements for dealing with unexpected ground conditions being encountered during construction shall be adhered to throughout and evidence of each stage reported in writing to the Local Planning Authority and Environmental Health Department for approval. 

i. A suitably trained geo-environmental engineer should assess the visual and olfactory observations of the ground and the extent of contamination and the Client and the Local Authority should be informed of the discovery. 

ii. The suspected contaminated material will be investigated and tested appropriately in accordance with assessed risks. The investigation works will be carried out in the presence of a suitably qualified geo-environmental engineer. The investigation works will involve the collection of solid samples for testing and, using visual and olfactory observations of the ground, delineate the area over which contaminated materials are present. 

iii. The unexpected contaminated material will either be left in situ or be stockpiled (except if suspected to be asbestos) whilst testing is carried out and suitable assessments completed to determine whether the material can be re-used on site or requires disposal as appropriate. 

iv. The testing suite will be determined by the independent geo-environmental specialist based on visual and olfactory observations. 

v. Test results will be compared against current assessment criteria suitable for the future use of the area of the site affected. 

vi. Where the material is left in situ awaiting results, it will either be reburied or covered with plastic sheeting. 

vii. Where the potentially contaminated material is to be temporarily stockpiled, it will be placed either on a prepared surface of clay, or on 2000-gauge Visqueen sheeting (or other impermeable surface) and covered to prevent dust and odour emissions. 

viii. Any areas where unexpected visual or olfactory ground contamination is identified will be surveyed and testing results incorporated into a Verification Report. 

ix. A photographic record will be made of relevant observations. 

x. The results of the investigation and testing of any suspect unexpected contamination will be used to determine the relevant actions. After consultation with the Local Authority, materials should either be: o re-used in areas where test results indicate that it meets compliance targets so it can be re-used without treatment; or o treatment of material on site to meet compliance targets so it can be re-used; or o removal from site to a suitably licensed landfill or permitted treatment facility. 

xi. A Verification Report will be produced for the work. 

Reason – To protect the health of site workers and end users given the proposal and the development sites proximity to an area of potential contamination within 250m and an unknown infill approximately 50m northwest of the proposed site.
