97 PLANNING APPLICATIONS

  1. RR/3165/CC Felon Field, Marley Lane, Battle TN33 0RE. New East Sussex County Council Highway maintenance depot with salt barn, 10no.vehicle garages, vehicle washdown, materials storage bunkers and office/welfare facilities. NB ESCC is reconsulting the Parish Council on changes to the planning application (then numbered RR/2013/1568/C) which have resulted from the need to remove or mitigate impacts on protected species from the proposed development. These measures include a revised site plan and layout which reduces the size of the proposed depot.

    ESCC will assume that the Parish Council's original comments still apply unless they are told otherwise. The Parish Council comments were as follows:

    That the Parish Council supports approval but wishes to highlight the following issues of concern which are all intended to reduce the area's impact on the AONB:

    1. The Tree Preservation Order for this area should be enforced.
    2. All lights should be "down lighters" to minimise the impact on the site on the dark countryside that does not have any other street lighting in the vicinity.
    3. The use of green material for walls and roof mentioned in the application should be enforced to ensure better blending into the countryside.
    Rother District Council's comments were no objection subject to the following considerations
    1. The retention and enhancement of tree screening.
    2. The regulation of surface water discharge so as not to increase risk of flooding down-stream.
    3. The protection of ground water and water courses from pollution risk to the satisfaction of the Environment Agency.
    Rother Local Plan 2006, Policy EM5 refers. Para (a) states Land west of D.B. Earthmoving, Marley Lane, as defined on the Proposals Map, is allocated for industrial/storage purposes.
