Variation of Conditions 2 (Approved Plans), 8 (Access), 10 (Vision Splays), 11 (Parking and Turning Areas), 13 (Off-site Highway Works) of application P18/S2795/FUL to incorporate the revised plans submitted to demonstrate the new proposed access from Horsepond Road.

The committee considered application P20/S0999/FUL for the variation of Conditions 2 (Approved Plans), 8 (Access), 10 (Vision Splays), 11 (Parking and Turning Areas), 13 (Off-site Highway Works) of application 18/S2795/FUL to incorporate the revised plans submitted to demonstrate the new proposed access from Horsepond Road at the Old Palm Tree Restaurant, Reading Road, Cane End .
Consultations, representations, policy and guidance and the site’s planning history were detailed in the officer’s report which formed part of the agenda pack for this meeting.
The planning officer reported that works on the site were at an advanced stage; the restaurant building had been demolished and six dwellings were being completed. There was now a proposal for a different location for the access, the previously approved vehicular access directly onto Reading Road (A4074) would be closed to vehicular traffic and the main entrance to the site would be via Horsepond Road. The old access would be closed and landscaped. The Oxfordshire County Council, the highways authority, had no objection to this proposal. The Committee concurred that the proposed access represented a much safer location from a highways safety perspective.
Mr T M Perchard, a representative of Kidmore End Parish Council, spoke to the application.
Councillor Peter Dragonetti, the local ward councillor, spoke to the application.
A motion moved and seconded, to grant planning permission was declared carried on being put to the vote.
