 14.

Unless other suitable compensatory planting areas are agreed in writing with the Council, as Planning Authority (in consultation with the Forestry Commission) no extraction of any materials below the water table in Phase 1 shall be permitted to occur (no deeper than 5m below the current ground level).  These areas, shall then be restored and planted with trees of a species, and density of planting that will have been agreed in writing in advance by the Council as Planning Authority.  If off site compensatory planting and timescales are agreed for the area covered by Phase 1, then the extraction may occur to the depth as shown on approved ‘Cross Sections’ plan drawing no OG220/PA/F/02.

 

 

Reason – In order to compensate for the loss of woodland that will result from the development.

 

 15.

Unless other suitable compensatory planting areas are agreed in writing with the Council, as Planning Authority (in consultation with the Forestry Commission) no extraction of any materials below the water table in Phase 2 (no deeper than 5m below the current ground level).  These areas, shall then be restored and planted with trees of a species, and density of planting that will have been agreed in writing in advance by the Council, as planning authority.  The only exception to this shall be an area of 2 hectares within Phase 2, which shall be defined on an amended plan and cross section and agreed in writing with the Council, as planning authority prior to mineral extraction commencing on Phase 2.  If off site compensatory planting is agreed for the area covered by Phase 2, then the extraction may occur to the depth as shown on approved ‘Cross Sections’ plan drawing no OG220/PA/F/02.

 

 

Reason – In order to compensate for the loss of woodland that will result from the development.

 

 16.

In the event that no other compensatory planting areas are proposed beyond the area agreed at Bogend Quarry, Buckie, prior to the commencement of each phase, a revised cross section plan, and finalised restoration plan (also in accordance with the information required in condition 2 above) must be submitted to and approved in writing by the Council, as planning authority showing the revised quarry depths.  The approved restoration plan shall be implemented in accordance with the details and timescales.

 

 

Reason - In order to avoid any ambiguity regarding the terms of the consent and to ensure the further consideration of the final site restoration details.

 

 17.

A radiological site walkover is required once tree felling has been completed for each phase.  This will establish whether or not radium 226 is present within the top 20-30cm of soils on site and if present further radiological screening is required during the extraction of these soils to establish suitability for re-use on site.  Findings of the radiological surveys (and if necessary proposals for further screening) must be submitted to the Council (in consultation with SEPA) for prior written approval before soils can be reused on site.  If radium 226 is present the soils must be disposed of or treated to satisfaction of both SEPA and Moray Council.

 

 

Reason – In order to ensure that suitable checks for radioactive material are undertaken and suitable mitigation is undertaken if required given the historic use of the site as a military airfield.

 

 18.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Council, as Planning Authority in consultation with SEPA there shall be no dewatering of the site.

 

 

Reason – To avoid impacts on groundwater flow.

 

 19.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, no development shall commence until a strategy to assess and then, where subsequently appropriate, a strategy to deal with potential contamination on the site, including assessment of risk from explosive ordnance, have been submitted to, and accepted in writing by, the Council, as Planning Authority.  The strategies shall be devised and overseen by an appropriately qualified person in accordance with relevant up-to-date authoritative technical guidance, e.g.  BS10175 'The Investigation of Potentially Contaminated Sites - Code of Practice', and shall include:

 

  1. an appropriate level of characterisation of the type, nature and extent of contamination on the site and accompanying risk assessment as described in Planning Advice Note 33 Development of Contaminated Land (Revised 2000);
  2. how any identified contamination will be dealt with during construction works;
  3. details of remedial measures required to treat, remove or otherwise mitigate contamination to ensure that the site is suitable for the proposed use, and that it does not represent a risk to health or of pollution in the wider environment; and
  4. a means of verifying the condition of the site on completion of the remedial measures.

 

Thereafter, no development shall commence (other than those works required to investigate and remediate contamination on the site) until written confirmation has been issued by the Council, as Planning Authority that the works have been implemented and completed in accordance with the agreed details.

 

  Reason - To ensure that the site is suitable for the proposed use, and that risks to the wider environment and to users of neighbouring land from on-site contamination are appropriately assessed and managed.

Ward 4: Elgin City South

 

Proposed mixed use development comprising family restaurant with licensed premises and housing with associated access infrastructure and landscaping works at Elgin Auction Mart, New Elgin Road, Elgin, Moray for Aberdeen and Northern (Estates) Ltd

 

Councillor Alexander, having declared an interest in this planning application, took no part in the relevant discussion or decision.

 

A report by the Appointed Officer recommended that, for reasons detailed within the report, planning permission in principle be refused in respect of a proposed mixed use development comprising family restaurant with licensed premises and housing with associated access infrastructure and landscaping works at Elgin Auction Mart, New Elgin Road, Elgin, Moray for Aberdeen and Northern (Estates) Ltd.  The report also advised that members of the Committee visited the site of the application on 14 September 2018.

 

The Committee noted that the application had been referred to Committee as the application is a major development as defined under the Hierarchy Regulations 2009 wherein, as a mixed-use development, the site area exceeds 2ha and more than 50 dwellings are proposed.

 

During his introduction, Mr Burnie, Principal Planning Officer advised that 2 late representations had been received which had been circulated to Members of the Committee however no new material planning considerations had been included within these further representations.

 

Councillor Divers, stated that he was aware that the area in question had flooded significantly in the past, despite the recent flood scheme and, as the Applicant did not sufficiently address these issues in their application, moved that the Committee agree to refuse planning permission in principle in respect of Planning Application 17/00120/PPP, as recommended, for the reasons detailed in the report.  This was seconded by Councillor Macrae.

 

Councillor A McLean, in recognising that a further application may come back for consideration should the flooding issues be addressed, asked that future prospective applicants be asked to consider the character of existing buildings when proposing further development and that any proposed residential flats should be no more than 2 storeys in height.

 

There being no-one otherwise minded, the Committee agreed:

  1. that future prospective applicants be asked to consider the character of existing buildings when proposing further development and that any proposed residential flats should be no more than 2 storeys in height; and

  2. to refuse planning permission in principle in respect of Planning Application 17/00120/PPP, as recommended, for the following reasons: 


    Notwithstanding the ‘in principle’ status of the application, the development is contrary to the provisions of the Moray Local Development Plan 2015 and Scottish Planning Policy whereby
  • although required, a detailed Flood Risk Assessment has not been provided (Elgin OPP5 designation refers) and insufficient information is provided about the arrangements to manage and mitigate the risk of flooding, in terms of details about the extent of all proposed/required mitigation measures (which may include land raising and/or any other measures) to address all identified sources of flood risk associated with the site and demonstration that the effects of such mitigation measures as required/proposed will not exacerbate the risk of flooding whether to the development itself and to elsewhere, including property adjoining the site (Policy H1, IMP1 and Scottish Planning Policy refers).

Subdivision of an existing retail unit and part change of use to Class 11 (Assembly and Leisure) with creation of new entrance and associated external work at New Look Plc, Unit 3, Springfield Retail Park, Edgar Road, for Springfield Retail Park Elgin Real Estate S.A.R.L.

 

Councillors Divers and Macrae, having declared an interest in this planning application, left the meeting, taking no part in the relevant discussion or decision.

 

Councillor Patience also declared an interest in this planning application being a Director on the Board of another leisure organisation in Elgin and left the meeting, taking no part in the relevant discussion or decision.

 

A report by the Appointed Officer recommended that, subject to the conditions detailed within the report, planning permission be granted in respect of the subdivision of an existing retail unit and part change of use to Class 11 (Assembly and Leisure) with creation of new entrance and associated external work at New Look Plc, Unit 3, Springfield Retail Park, Edgar Road, for Springfield Retail Park Elgin Real Estate S.A.R.L.  The report also advised that members of the Committee visited the site of the application on 14 September 2018.

 

The Committee noted that the application had been referred to Committee as the introduction of a proposed (Class 11) leisure use within the Class 1 non-food retail use of Springfield Retail Park would represent a significant amendment to that development as granted planning permission.

 

Following consideration, the Chair moved that the Committee agree to grant planning permission in respect of Planning Application 18/00964/APP as recommended, for the reasons detailed in the report.

 

There being no-one otherwise minded, the Committee agreed to grant planning permission in respect of Planning Application 18/00964/APP for the following reasons:

  1. Notwithstanding the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) (Scotland) Order 1997 (or such Order that may revoke, amend or re-enact that Order) the permission hereby granted shall relate only to the use of the existing retail unit (once sub-divided) for Class 1 non-food retailing purposes and the use of the remainder of the unit (once sub-divided) for the purposes of a gym within Class 11, and neither the retail unit nor the gym shall be used for any other use or purpose without the approval of the Council, as Planning Authority.

    Reason - To ensure consideration can be given to the effects and impacts of uses other than that approved herewith upon the amenity and appearance of the surrounding area.Councillors Divers, Macrae and Patience rejoined the meeting at this juncture.
