WILDLIFE & COUNTRYSIDE ACT 1981 – SECTION 53 APPLICATION TO DELETE A SECTION OF PUBLIC FOOTPATH NO 358020 IN THE DISTRICT OF EDEN pdf icon PDF 5 MB

To consider a report from the Acting Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure

 

Minutes:

A report was considered from the Acting Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure regarding the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 – Section 53 Application to delete a section of public footpath no 358020 in the district of Eden. The report advised that an application had been received to delete a section of public footpath no 358020 near Penrith, from the Definitive Map. The report presented members with the evidence regarding the route and asked members to decide whether to proceed with the next stage of the process by making a legal order.

 

The Senior Countryside Officer outlined the history to the application and advised members of the evidence that had been taken into consideration. He did not consider that there was enough evidence to show that the Definitive Map was incorrect. A member reported on the historical significance of the folly tower and considered that a path leading to it would be reasonable.

 

Mrs Carrick, the Local Member commented on the detail available in the report, on the evidence from the witness statements from local people and how the path wasn’t recorded on various maps over the years. She highlighted that it was a quarrying area and some maps showed a path used by workers travelling to the quarry and therefore it may have been mistaken as a footpath. She drew members’ attention to evidence relating to the lack of a viable field gate since 1926, evidence from a resident of 40 years and the description of the route on the original Schedule for path 358020. She highlighted that existence of the public right of way was not known until 1988. As the path had not been used, she queried the statement of the Ramblers Association that as it had been diverted, the route must have been a path. She considered that there had been a series of errors in the recording process, explaining that the tracks to the quarry may have been misinterpreted as a footpath, the connection between the field and tower had not existed until 1950. She noted that the judgement was based on a balance of probability but stated that she did not think the footpath existed and supported deletion of the path. Mrs Carrick did not vote on this application.

 

Discussion took place on which County Council department historically would have dealt with the recording of changes to the footpath and the date when the Definitive Map was created. In moving that the application be rejected, Mr McGuckin expressed his reticence to delete the footpath as he considered that the path existed but the way in which it had been interpreted had been a mistake. Mr Worth seconded the Motion. Members were advised that if the path was retained then a diversion would be an option.

 

Following a vote with 16 in favour of the motion, 1 against and 1 abstention (Mrs Carrick), it was

 

RESOLVED that, the application to delete a section of public footpath no 358020 in the parish of Penrith (shown A-B  ...  view the full minutes text for item 9.

To consider a report from the Acting Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure

Minutes:

A report was considered from the Acting Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure regarding the Localism Act 2011 Section 1(1) – Application to create a public footpath at Distington in the parish of Distington: district of Copeland which advised that the County Council owned a piece of land at Prospect Lodge, Distington and proposed to dedicate it as a public footpath.

 

The Senior Countryside Officer guided members through the application, showing photographs of the footpath and a map of the area. He advised that if the application was agreed, a bollard would be removed at the end of the path to improve access.

 

In moving that the land be dedicated as a public footpath, Mr Morgan advised that he had walked the path for forty years. Mr English seconded the motion. It was noted that the Parish Council supported the application. Members welcomed that the path would be retained for the community. The Senior Countryside Officer explained the reason for removing the bollard and members were advised of the work being undertaken in order to restrict vehicular access yet allow wheelchair and pushchair access. A member advised that there was vehicular access close to the path.

 

Following a unanimous vote in favour of dedicating the land as a public footpath, it was

 

RESOLVED that, using the powers set out in the Localism Act 2011 at Section 1(1), the County Council dedicate that section of land as a public footpath marked A-B-C described in Appendix A and shown on the plan at Appendix B of the report.

Minutes:

A report was considered from the Acting Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure regarding the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 – Section 53 Application to add a public footpath at Culgaith – parish of Culgaith: District of Eden which advised that an application had been received from Culgaith Parish Council in 2008 to add a public footpath alongside the church at Culgaith in the parish of Culgaith.

The Senior Countryside Officer showed photographs of the route and a map of the area.

 

Mr Morgan moved that the Order be made and the Chief Legal Officer confirm the order. This was seconded by Mr Cotton. Following a unanimous vote in favour of the motion, it was

 

RESOLVED that,

The Lead Officer Historic Environment and Commons reported on the number of applications processed and dealt with under delegated powers. He advised that the spike in historical severance applications had occurred because of the Commons Act (2006) and that a large proportion of those applications had to be determined by the Committee due to objections received from one member of the public. Historical Statutory Disposition was explained for members in relation to the Warcop Training Area application. The number of pending cases was reported.

Mr Mc Guckin in the Chair.

 

A report was considered from the Acting Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure regarding application reference Nos. 5/19/9001 & 5/19/9003.Proposal/Location1: Change of Use of land to the front and rear of County Hall and the Emergency Services buildings at Busher Walk, Kendal from office and storage uses (with associated parking) to a Car Park with associated development.

The Planning Officer presented a map of the area, aeriel photographs, a site plan, a map showing Environment Agency Flood Risk Zones, a map showing the Kendal Conservation Area, a map showing the reduction in wall heights, photographs of the building, a landscape plan, photographs showing infrastructure and furniture, the proposed layout and the landscaping plan. All of the planning issues were outlined for members. Attention was drawn to the Update Sheet which identified modifications to the planning conditions. He recommended that planning permission be granted as modified by the amended planning conditions.

 

Discussion took place on the number of disabled parking bays in the proposal. It was highlighted that amongst the membership of the Council, there were more members requiring the spaces than those provided. The current provision of disabled spaces was considered to be more appropriate. It was queried why disabled spaces were split between the front and rear car parks as it may be difficult for someone to park at the back of the building and enter at the front.

 

The Planning Officer talked about the location of disabled bays, stating that they would be spread to allow the public to park in a disabled bay at the building’s rear then use the footpath along the river. He advised that changes could be made to the location of parking bays. A number of members did not support the number of and location of the disabled bays. A query was raised on the management of the barrier entrance and the potential for vehicles to queue whilst waiting to enter the car park.

 

The Planning Officer would report member comments on parking to the applicant and request changes be made. The Manager Development Control and Countryside Management stated that the issues raised by members were a material planning consideration and suggested that rather than defer the application, an extra condition be added in order that officers could address members’ issues.

 

A member questioned whether an Access for All survey should have been undertaken and would support the application on the understanding that this took place. It was confirmed that there would be pay and display car park at the front of the building. A short discussion took place on parking  ...  view the full minutes text for item 13b

Application Reference No. 5/19/9002. Proposal: Engineering Operations to infill and level part Fields 8900 and 9108, Land South East of Strawberry Fields. Location: 1 Strawberry Fields, Kendal, LA9 7TA pdf icon PDF 447 KB

Minutes:

A report was considered from the Acting Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure regarding application reference No. 5/19/9002. Proposal: Engineering Operations to infill and level part Fields 8900 and 9108, Land South East of Strawberry Fields. Location: 1 Strawberry Fields, Kendal, LA9 7TA.

 

The Lead Officer - Development Control presented a map of the area, a photograph of the housing development, a photograph showing the hollow, a cross section of the land when infilled and photographs of the site. He advised members about the flood risk to the housing development and flood risk scheme at Strawberry Fields. He concluded that the application would not increase flood risk in the area or downstream.

 

Following member questions, the Committee was advised that the Public Right of Way would be protected and maintained, no builders rubble would be deposited in the hollow, material would be screened to ensure it was clean, the land was of low quality, the scheme adhered to flood protection legislation and the scheme was designed to the best of officers’ knowledge. Members queried the use of clay and the ability for water to percolate through the infill material. A number of members remained sceptical about the flood risk. The Lead Officer - Development Control understood member’s concerns regarding flooding but reassured members that technical experts had deemed the proposal to be satisfactory and advised the committee to grant planning permission. He advised members on how flooding was dealt with in the area, who would maintain the culverts and reassured members that there would be a Section 106 agreement in place.

 

It was moved by Mr McGuckin and seconded by Mr Fisher that planning permission be granted subject to the conditions set out in Appendix 1 of the report. Following a vote in favour of the motion, with 10 in favour, 1 abstention (Mr Bingham) and 3 against (Mr Cotton, Mr Cook and Mrs Gray), it was

Application Reference No. 5/19/9004. Proposal: Continued use of a temporary outfall from Kendal Wastewater Treatment Works up to 31st October 2021. Screening opinion also required. Location: Kendal Wastewater Treatment Works, Wattsfield Road, Kendal pdf icon PDF 644 KB

Minutes:

A report was considered from the Acting Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure regarding application reference No. 5/19/9004. Proposal: Continued use of a temporary outfall from Kendal Wastewater Treatment Works up to 31st October 2021.  Screening opinion also required. Location: Kendal Wastewater Treatment Works, Wattsfield Road, Kendal.

 

The Lead Officer - Development Control presented the background to the application and showed the location plan of the outfall location, the design of the outfall and photographs of the river, outfall pipe and testing of the water. He advised that a second application had been challenged but this had no impact on the application before members. He summarised the main issues for the Committee and advised that based on data, there would be no significant effects on water, flow or on species in the river. In explaining the extension of time he considered there was currently no other viable alternative but a solution was being sought. He recommended that planning permission be granted.

 

A member queried whether there were mitigating actions in place should there be low rainfall for an extended period of time. A member highlighted his conservation concerns as the site was near a Roman fort and he hoped that the extension of time would improve the odour from the discharge area. The Lead Officer - Development Control advised that there was no evidence that flow or discharge would affect the Roman fort.

 

Ms S Jakubiak from United Utilities attended the meeting to address the Committee under the Public Participation Scheme. In urging the Committee to grant planning permission, she made the following points:

 

·         The key consideration was the potential ecological impact on the designated site

·         Following an ecological assessment of the affected reach, there were no likely significant effects on the River Kent or on the SSSI features

·         Natural England agreed that extending the licence wouldn’t have a negative impact on the river Kent Special Area of Conservation

·         The Environment Agency had 2 probes monitoring water quality in the river and it had no objections to the proposal

·         A solution was being sought to progress a permanent solution which included reinstating a pipe under the river bed, reinstating a pipe further downstream and installing a pipe over the river

·         A number of assessments and surveys had taken place to assist with designing a solution

·         Throughout the process, United Utilities had engaged with Natural England and the Environment Agency and both supported the application

·         United Utilities were only on site between July and September

·         If the proposal was declined then there would be negative impacts in the area.

 

Members queried the benefits of installing the original outfall and whether water quality would improve if the original outfall was installed. Ms Jakubiak advised that the only issue was the location of the outfall as local anglers did not like where it was situated. As there had been opposition to the application, reinstatement in a more resilient way had been investigated but the hard rock had caused a number of problems.
