Positive and Proactive Statement. No problems have arisen in dealing with this application. The planning application sought an acceptable form of development consistent with the requirements of relevant policies and material considerations. No amendments or alterations were therefore required and no further positive or proactive action was deemed necessary.
A public right of way crosses the site of this permission. The permission does not authorise the stopping up or diversion of the right of way. The right of way may be stopped up or diverted by Order under Section 257 of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1990, provided that the Order is made before the development is carried out. If the right of way is obstructed before the Order is made, the Order cannot proceed until the obstruction is removed.
Access to the site is via a public right of way and the applicant’s attention is drawn to the restrictions imposed by Section 34 of the Road Traffic Act, 1988, regarding the driving of motor vehicles over public footpaths/bridleways
This permission does not authorise the applicant to carry out works within the publicly maintained highway since such works can only be carried out by the County Council's Approved Contractor following the issue of a license under Section 184 and 278 of the Highways Act, 1980. The applicant should contact Worcestershire County Council's Highways Community and Response Unit, County Hall, Spetchley Road, Worcester WR5 2NP (telephone 0845 607 2005), regarding the issue of the necessary license authorising the access works to be carried out by the County Council's Approved Contractor at the applicant's expense. The applicant should give the County Council sufficient notice to enable, as far as possible, the licence procedure to be carried out so that there is no disruption to the applicant's programme of works.
This permission does not authorise the laying of private apparatus within the confines of the public highway. The applicant should apply to the Worcestershire County Council's Community and Response Unit, County Hall, Spetchley Road, Worcester WR5 2NP (telephone 0845 607 2005), for consent under the New Roads and Street works Act 1991 to install private apparatus within the confines of the public highway. Precise details of all works within the public highway must be agreed on site with the Highway Authority.
The attention of the applicant is drawn to the need to keep the highway free from any mud or other material emanating from the application site or any works pertaining thereto.
The applicant must be aware of their obligations towards the public right of way as follows: No disturbance of, or change to, the surface of the path or part thereof should be carried out with written consent (this includes laying concrete, tarmac or similar) No diminution in the width of the right of way available for use by the public. Building materials must not be stored on the right of way. Vehicle movements and parking to be arranged so as not to unreasonably interfere with the public's use of the right of way. No additional barriers are placed across the right of way. No stile, gate, fence or other structure should be created on, or across, a public right of way without written consent of the Highway Authority. The safety of the public using the right of way is to be ensure at all times. If the development cannot be carried out without temporarily closing the public right of way for the safety of the public during works, application should be made at least 6 weeks in advance to the Mapping Team of the Countryside Service at Worcestershire County Council. The applicant should note the National Planning Policy Framework published in March 2012 by the Department for Communities and Local Government, particularly paragraph 75 to ensure that planning policies protect and enhance public rights of way and access. The developer should also be aware of the Department of Environment Circular 1/09 (part 7) which explains that the effect of development on a public right of way is a material consideration in the determination of applications for planning permission and that the grant of planning consent does not entitle developers to obstruct a public right of way. The Definitive Map is a minimum record of public rights of way and does not preclude the possibility that unrecorded public rights may exist, nor that higher rights may exist than those shown.
