Condition Details / Information Notes
The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission. Reason: To conform with the requirements of Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as amended by Section 51 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.
Unless where required or allowed by other conditions attached to this permission/consent, the development hereby approved shall be carried out in accordance with the information (including details on the proposed materials) provided on the application form and the following plans/drawings/documents – Drawing 4378LP-01 – Location Plan Drawing 4378EP-01 – Existing Block Plan Drawing 4378G-01 – Proposed Garaging Drawing 4378A-01 (Rev A) – Proposed Floor Plans and Elevations Drawing 4378BP-01 – Proposed Block Plan Reason: To define the permission.
The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in strict accordance with the recommendations set out in the Preliminary Ecological Appraisal report carried out by Envirotech Ecological Consultants dated 28th September 2020 and submitted with this application. In particular: - Roots of trees on site and its boundaries should be adequately protected during the works. - The landscaping scheme should utilise native and wildlife friendly plants, including night flowering species beneficial to bats. - Precautionary measures should be taken in regards to amphibians and brown hares. In the event that amphibian or brown hare activity is found, all works should cease and further ecological advice sought, including a detailed method statement and programme of mitigation implemented. Points relating to working at night and leaving open trenches for badgers are also applicable to brown hares. - The old pond may be dredged to specification if required. - The following advice should be followed in relation to badgers: o All work must take place during daylight hours as badgers are more likely to be commuting over the site at night and this will ensure the risk to any badgers passing through the site will be minimised. o Should any trenches and excavations be required, an escape route for animals that enter the trench must be provided, especially if left open overnight. Ramps should be no greater than of 45 degrees in angle. Ideally, any holes should be securely covered. This will ensure badgers are not trapped during work. o All excavations left open overnight or longer should be checked for animals prior to the continuation of works or infilling. Back filling should be completed immediately after any excavations, ideally back filling as an on-going process to the work in hand. - The following advice should be followed in regards to bats: o Work at night should be restricted, new planting within the site should enhance structural diversity and light spill onto the boundary should be minimised. o New roosting provision for crevice dwelling bats could be incorporated into the buildings on site or bat boxes could be erected in retained trees. o If the weeping willow tree is to be felled it should be re-inspected for bats to confirm they remain absent. o Overall it is considered there is more than sufficient scope for mitigation and compensation at the site such that there will be no adverse impact on the favourable conservation status of bats affected by the proposal. - The following advice should be followed in regards to birds: o Any vegetation to be trimmed or cleared should be checked for nesting birds before it is removed. Ideally this should occur outside the bird nesting period March- September. If vegetation clearance is to occur in the March-September period a check for nesting birds should be conducted first by a suitably qualified individual. o New planting within the site and the retention of trees and shrubs on the site boundary will maintain the ecological functionality of the site for breeding birds. o Artificial bird nesting sites for swallow could be incorporated into the new buildings under the eaves in suitable locations. o If nesting birds are found at the site all site works shall cease and further ecological advice shall be sought with a view to a detailed method statement and programme of mitigation measures being prepared and implemented. Reason: To ensure the development contributes to the conservation and enhancement of biodiversity within the site and the wider area in accordance with policy SWDP22 of the South Worcestershire Development Plan.
