Notice of Application


Conditions:

  1. No development shall take place until the applicant, or their agents or successors in title, has secured the implementation of a watching brief to be undertaken by an archaeologist approved by the Local Planning Authority so that the excavation is observed and items of interest and finds are recorded. The watching brief shall be in accordance with a written programme and specification which has previously been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority and shall be implemented as approved
  1. Each Unit/building hereby approved shall be constructed to achieve a minimum Building Research Establishment BREEAM (or equivalent quality assured scheme) overall ‘Very Good’ standard comprising the following minimum credit requirements:
    • i) ‘Very Good’ standard in respect of energy credits
    • ii) ‘Outstanding’ standard in respect of water credits
    • iii) ‘Excellent’ standard in respect of materials credits
    • iv) under criterion Ene4 (Low and Zero Carbon Technologies) (or subsequent equivalent criterion) 1 credit for a feasibility study and 2 credits for a 10% reduction in carbon emissions.

    Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority, no work on each building shall commence until the following for that building have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority:

    • a) Details of the measures and low and zero carbon (“LZC”) technologies and other technologies to be used to achieve the BREEAM credit requirements specified above
    • b) Simplified Building Energy Model (“SBEM”) calculations from a competent person stating the estimated amount of carbon emissions from energy demand with and without LZC technologies installed

    Prior to development commencing, details of how the development will reduce carbon dioxide emissions to a level 10% below the predicted total energy demand through the use of on-site sustainable energy technologies such as renewables and/or low carbon technologies shall be submitted to the Local Planning Authority for written approval.

    Within three months from commencement of works on site, a BREEAM ‘Design Stage’ assessment and related certification confirming the BREEAM standard that has been achieved shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the LPA.

    Within three months following occupation of the buildings, a BREEAM ‘post construction stage’ assessment and related certification confirming that the BREEAM standard that has been achieved shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

    Following any approval of a ‘Post Construction State’ assessment for the fit out only of the Tenant unit and all related certification confirming that the BREEAM standard that has been achieved shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

    Following any approval of a ‘Post Construction Stage’ assessment, the approved measures and technologies to achieve the BREEAM ‘very good’ standard and to ensure that development is compliant with the 10% carbon reduction target shall be implemented in accordance with the approval and thereafter shall be retained in working order in perpetuity.

    The development shall be carried out in accordance with the approved BREEAM ‘Design Stage’ report and the details approved under a) above. The approved measures and LZC and other technologies for achieving the BREEAM credit requirements specified above shall thereafter be retained in working order unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

    Within three months of a building being occupied, the following in respect of that building shall be submitted to the Local Planning Authority for approval:

    • a) SBEM calculations from a competent person stating
      • (i) the actual amount of carbon emissions from energy demand with the LZC technologies that have been installed and what the emissions would have been without them and
      • (ii) the actual amount of residual carbon emissions
    • b) a BREEAM ‘Post Construction Stage’ report and related certification produced by a registered assessor confirming the BREEAM standard that has been achieved and the credits awarded under Ene4
  2. Prior to the commencement of the development a Code of Construction Practice shall be submitted to and approval in writing by the Local Planning Authority.The construction of the development shall then be carried out in accordance with the approved Code of Construction Practice and BS5228 Noise Vibration and Control on Construction and Open Sites and the Control of dust from construction sites (BRE DTi Feb 2003).unless previously agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The code shall include:
    • An indicative programme for carrying out the works
    • Measures to minimise the production of dust and vapours on the site(s)
    • Measures to minimise the noise (including vibration) generated by the construction process to include the careful selection of plant and machinery and use of noise mitigation barrier(s)
    • Maximum noise levels expected 1 metre from the affected façade of any residential unit adjacent to the site(s)
    • Management of traffic visiting the site(s) including temporary parking or holding areas
    • Provision of off road parking for all site operatives
    • Measures to prevent the transfer of mud and extraneous material onto the public highway
    • Measures to manage the production of waste and to maximise the re-use of materials
    • Measures to minimise the potential for pollution of groundwater and surface water
    • The location and design of site office(s) and storage compounds
    • The location of temporary vehicle access points to the site(s) during the construction works
    • The arrangements for public consultation and liaison during the construction works
    • Construction Hoardings including decorative details
  1. Prior to works commencing on site, details of parking for site personnel as well as details of loading and turning areas for construction traffic shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority and thereafter shall be provided and retained throughout the development.
  2. Prior to development commencing, details shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority which shows the location of the proposed site compound and lorry routing to the site from M20. The site compound and lorry routing shall be implemented in accordance with the approved details, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority, and shall be retained as such for the duration of the works hereby approved.
  3. Prior to the commencement of development, details of facilities, by which vehicles will have their wheels, chassis and bodywork effectively cleaned and washed free of mud and similar substances at the application site, shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The approved facilities shall then be provided prior to the works commencing on site and thereafter shall be maintained in an effective working condition and used before vehicles exit the site and enter onto the adopted highway for the duration of the construction works.
  4. No work shall be carried out on site for the development hereby approved until a detailed management plan for reducing construction waste during the building process in the form of site management, waste management and project design and planning has been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The approved waste management plan shall be implemented throughout the period of work on site.
  1. Prior to the commencement of the development hereby approved a letter or reporting confirming the precise mitigation measures as recommended by the Waterman Geo-Environmental Assessment report and how they have been incorporated into the design of the development to manage potential pollutant linkages identified in Table 24 shall be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority in writing.
