NOTES FROM THE JANUARY 2017 MEETING OF NORTHWOOD PARISH COUNCIL:

.
PLANNING APPLICATION
Land adjacent to Harry Cheek Gardens, and rear of 31 to 61 Pallance Road, Northwood – Outline for residential development of 31 properties with access to road and footpath network Mr Price, agreed to act as the representative for the number of local residents’ present and outlined their representations against the application. Cllr Jaggar referred to the many comments that had been submitted on the IW Council’s website. The Parish Council recommends refusal of the application TCP/32897 on land adjacent to Harry Cheek Gardens, and rear of 31 to 61 Pallance Road, Northwood among the potential concerns: the proposal by reason of its position, size, design and external appearance would be a visually intrusive development that would have a detrimental effect on the character and appearance of the site and surrounding area contrary to the aims of policies SP1 (Spatial Strategy) and DM2 (Design Quality for new Development) of the Island Plan Core Strategy; the proposal would have a severe detrimental impact on the surrounding Highway network, including the junction of Newport Road/Nodes Road, which the IW Council has previously determined to be at a maximum level. This decision by the IW Council had been made prior to the subsequent approval of the development of 86 properties in Place Road and other planning development approvals in Gurnard and Cowes; the problems for cars when egressing and/or ingressing Harry Cheek Gardens will be exacerbated due to the lack of visibility along Wyatts Lane and the on-street parking at the junction, within Harry Cheek Gardens; the number of empty properties currently available in Northwood; the latest Northwood Housing Needs survey forecast a requirement to provide 27 homes over five years, to meet local needs. However, this has been more than adequately covered in the Cowes sub market area (identified in the Strategic Housing Market Assessment).
.
REPLACEMENT OF TUBS
Cllr Pullen advised that quotations were being sought for the replacement of the tubs and planters. Fortunately, those in need of urgent remedial work had been secured or repaired. The remaining could await until the spring. The small broken planter along the Newport Road would be removed.
.
POLICE MATTERS
In the absence of any representative from the local Cowes Neighbourhood Police team (NPT), the clerk had received a report from PCSO Howard. This provided particulars of the current Cowes team together with details of the five crimes committed in Northwood, during December, in comparison to the one crime that had taken place during the same period in 2015. In discussion, mention was made of the disappointing decision of the new Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Michael Lane to shelve plans for the Isle of Wight to be equally represented in the police authority’s name.
.
It was decided that IWALC be requested to make representations over the decision by the new PCC to drop plans for the Isle of Wight to be equally represented in the police authority’s name.
