http://www.iwight.com/council/departments/planning/appsdip/MakingCommentsInfo.aspx
i. TCP/24593/B land between 28 and 30 Oxford Street, Northwood – Proposed detached dwelling; formation of vehicular access; parking
The owner of 30 Oxford Street was present and addressed councilors, providing a brief summary on the recent history, including details of ownership, of the land in question.  An explanation as to the reasons for his objections to the application were also outlined.   The resident, at 28 Oxford Street, voiced her concerns with regard to the application.  She also highlighted that the plans, attached to the application, were incorrect as the garage shown at 28 Oxford Street had now been demolished, to enable the building of a two storey side extension to take place.
Cllr Fuller advised that based on the information provided at the meeting he would support refusal of the application.

 

RESOLVED :

 

THAT Northwood Parish Council raises a number of objections with regard to the application TCP/24593/B on land between 28 and 30 Oxford Street, Northwood:
• the proposal by reason of its size would be an overdevelopment of the site, out of scale and character with existing residential properties on the northern side of Oxford Street;
• the footprint of the site was too small for such a proposal and would have a detrimental impact on the appearance of the street scene;
• the proposal was set back from the building line of adjacent properties, exacerbating the detrimental, intrusive effect on the loss of light, amenities and privacy of the neighbouring residential properties at 28 and 30 Oxford Street, Northwood;
• the proposal was contrary to Policy DM2 of the Island’s Local Strategy Plan.

RESOLVED :

 

i. THAT having regard to the proposed amount of residential development set out in the application TCP/28471/A land bounded by River Medina/Cowes Youth Centre/Medina Road/Thetis/Pelham Road/Artic Road, Cowes, Northwood Parish Council is extremely concerned about the traffic implications along the Newport Road to St Mary’s roundabout and beyond to the Coppins Bridge gyratory system, with their particular concern centered on the implications for the junction of Newport Road and Nodes Road, Northwood;
ii. THAT having regard to the wording of Policy MVTI1: Highway Infrastructure in the emerging Medina Valley Area Action Plan, the Parish Council is concerned that there appears to be no recognition in the planning application and supporting documents that any improvements to the Nodes Road/Newport Road junction will be required to cater for such traffic implications, although it is currently agreed, in documents previously circulated by the IW Council, that this junction is at or approaching near capacity;
iii. THAT should the application be approved, then Northwood Parish Council requests for a Condition to be included seeking a contribution of s106 monies towards major junction improvements to alleviate the potential traffic flows at the junction of Nodes Road/Newport Road, Northwood;
iv. THAT the housing aspects of the proposed development seem to conflict with Policy MVE3; Employment Sites with Water Access, in that there will be some loss of employment use;
v. THAT Northwood Parish Council considers the proposal to be too focused on providing residential housing and not sufficiently focused on providing marine and maritime industries;
vi. THAT an Action Plan should be drawn up setting out as to where these businesses could be relocated to;
vii. THAT the IW Council be requested to undertake an Examination in Public of the proposed Medina Valley Action plan, as a matter of urgency, so to provide a level of certainty with regard to the economic development of the Island.
