There are a number of lobjections regarding this proposed development, noted below.
The purpose and size of the building is not in keeping with the area. It is a very large building for the site and does not blend well with the surrounding housing – to the one side it will be adjacent to one storey housing with a foot print of a similar size. It will be easily seen from both the main road and the smaller road where the access is proposed. It will be seen by all the adjacent housing. The proposed colour, size and design of the building will make it easily seen and an eyesore. It is far too big.
Suitability of the land. As the developer will be aware from the houses that he has already built on this parcel of land – the land is heavy and wet and will fail percolation tests for a soak away. Surrounding housing have package treatment works that drain into a draining ditch that runs to the one side of this parcel of land. There is therefore considerable concern regarding not only the appropriate disposal of the surface water but also the effluent from the stables. There is no detail on the application as to how this issue will be managed and mitigated. The development is very close to a watercourse and contamination is a very real concern. Another omission not covered in the application is how the debris from the stables will be managed. As indicated the development is in close proximity to a number of dwellings with no consideration on how this is proposed to be managed. The smell will be a significant issue and is of concern to the community.
The proposed development area backs directly on to housing - with no indication of fencing or other mitigations including gates etc. noted in the application.
The proposed access to the development is from the unclassified road – this turning is used extensively as a pull in for cars coming down the lane. Further clarity is needed on how this development will impact the traffic flow.
This is poor land for animal grazing, it is very wet land and therefore for most of the year will be unsuitable for horses to exercise/graze. This and the wider parcel are also quite small. The size and the poor grazing makes it unsuitable for this purpose.
There is an understanding that access for vehicles is required but the proposed hard core track road is out of proportion for the parcel of land. In addition, this is a badly designed stable with no provision for a hard surface on the stable side.
The owner of the land does not live locally and will need to travel to and from the site on a regular basis – they are also not on hand to deal with any issues with the animals should anything occur outside these hours.
Environmental impact - very little attention has been given to the issue- the wet land is a habitat to frogs and toad etc. and will be significantly affected by this development.
There is considerable local objection to this development.
As the Community Councillor for the area these comments have also been submitted to the Community Council.
