PLANNING COMMITTEE

17th January 2006

POLICY B3

For unallocated sites the Authority will expect a density of 30 dwellings per hectare though lower densities will be accepted where this is in the interest of the economic regeneration of the area.  However, within the area covered by Central Barrow Inset and Dalton Conservation Area, fairly high overall net development densities (around 70 dwellings per hectare) will be favoured on residential sites, consistent with primarily two or three storey development and good standards of amenity.

POLICY B4

Within the urban boundaries of Barrow and Dalton applications for new dwellings or conversions of existing buildings on suitable sites in residential areas or on the peripheries thereof will be permitted provided the design, siting, layout and access arrangements are satisfactory. This means that the development must also satisfy the criteria of Policy B2.  This Policy will also apply to land currently or last used for employment purposes or with planning permission for employment use where the proposal involves the provision of housing for which a specific need has been identified and where the location is considered suitable by the Authority, or such housing is mixed with employment uses, or the existing use is an un-neighbourly or non-conforming one by reason of excessive traffic generation, noise or disturbance to local amenity.

Housing Chapter Review

POLICY B2

Applications for residential development on unallocated sites will be permitted where they satisfy the following criteria:

i)The site is located within the built up area of existing settlements or the development cordons identified in Policy B12; and

ii)The siting, layout and design (in the materials and form of the buildings) of the development is sensitive to the local environment and adequate parking provision is made; and

iii)Adequate service and access arrangements can be provided, including servicing of the site by the public transport network and by cycle routes; and

iv)The development is laid out in a way that maximises energy efficiency; and

v)The development will not result in the loss of land which has a recognised or established nature conservation interest; and

vi)The development must not cause an undue increase in traffic  passing through existing residential areas such as to be detrimental to residential amenity or highway safety.
