The approved conditions were worded as follows, with the following proposed wording being suggested:

The details shall include size, type and species and a programme of work. The development shall be completed in accordance with the approved details.

REASON: To ensure that any soft landscaping features installed are appropriate and respectful of the site and surroundings in accordance with

Policy SD4 of the Local Plan.

Condition 4 – current wording

PLANNING HISTORY(Edit)

RESULTS OF CONSULTATION AND PUBLICITY(Edit)

No consultation due to the application being for a non-material amendment and not required by the legislation

CONSIDERATION OF PLANNING ISSUES(Edit)

Permission is sought for a variation to planning permission R-2021/0879/FF-Officer Report to amend conditions 3 and 4.

The main issues are, firstly in the context of the development, does the

  • variation of the condition constitute a non-material amendment and secondly
  • is the variation acceptable in the context of the scheme.

The variation of the conditions seeks to alter the timing/trigger point of the installation of landscaping at the site. It is proposed through the application to remove the need of the landscaping to be installed prior to the occupation of the building as currently required by the condition. This is due to other works taking place in close proximity to the site, likely to lead to issues within installing landscaping prior to occupation.

The variation of the conditions is not considered to result in a material alteration to the proposed development or compromise the delivery of the development as the resulting development will remain unaltered with the landscaping being provided at a later date than prior to occupation of the building. The same level of landscaping will be provide with the details of this still being required to be considered and discharged by the LPA.

CONCLUSION(Edit)

Taking the contents of the report into consideration the proposed variation is considered acceptable as a non-material amendment. The application is therefore recommended for approval with the reworded conditions being proposed.

RECOMMENDATION(Edit)

Taking into account the content of the report the recommendation is to:

GRANT NON MATERIAL AMENDMENT TO CONDITIONS 3 AND 4 OF R-2021/0879/FF-Officer Report

3. Prior to the installation of any soft landscaping, full details of any such works must be submitted to, and approved in writing by, the Local

Planning Authority. The details shall include size, type and species and a programme of work. The development shall be completed in accordance with the approved details.

REASON: To ensure that any soft landscaping features installed are appropriate and respectful of the site and surroundings in accordance with Policy SD4 of the Local Plan.

4. All planting, seeding or turfing specified in the approved landscaping scheme shall be carried out in accordance with the approved programme of work. Any trees or plants which within a period of ten years from installation die, are removed, or become seriously damaged or diseased shall be replaced in the next planting season with others of similar size and species unless the Local Planning Authority gives written consent to any variation.

REASON: To ensure the satisfactory implementation of any approved landscaping scheme in the interests of visual amenities of the locality.
