To consider the minutes of the last meeting held on 1st March 2023.

RESOLVED that the Minutes of a Planning Committee held on 1st March 2023 be approved as a correct record.


22/00380/FUL - Demolition of existing bungalows and assisted living building. Replacement with 23no. new dwellings (comprising 8no. houses and 15no. bungalows), and a 20no. flat independent living building - Development Site at Woburn Close, Blackwell pdf icon PDF 2 MB


Committee considered a detailed report in relation to the above application. The

application had been referred to Planning Committee due to the Council being the applicant.


The application had been amended following deferral from Planning Committee on 25th January 2023, and sought approval for the demolition of existing bungalows and assisted living building, and the redevelopment of the site.


Currently the site comprised of 20 semi-detached bungalows, assisted living building and a community centre. It was proposed that these be replaced with 23 new dwellings (comprising of 8 houses, 15 new bungalows and an independent living flat).


However, Blackwell Parish Council had since decided to withdraw from the scheme, so the application proposals had been re-designed to include retention of the existing community centre.


Further information was included in the update report which advised of comments received from NHS Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board / Joined Up Care Derbyshire, confirming that the development fell under their threshold for requesting a S106 contribution.


Regarding condition 2 of the recommendations, the update report requested Committee to agree to delegate a minor update to the Interim Head of Development Management to address a matter in relation to the elevation plans, and an amendment to the wording of condition 13 regarding hard and soft landscaping.


Moved by Councillor Duncan McGregor and seconded by Councillor Phil Smith

RESOLVED that the application be granted subject to the following conditions:


1.     The development shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.


Reason: To comply with the requirements of Section 51 of the Planning and

Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.
