Basement Review Draft policy and other measures for public consultation 2- Review of the Core Strategy box1 34.3.74

  • Comment ID: 515
Traffic Management Over the last two years a daily average of five to twelve Cement mixers carrying cement have dumped an unprecedented quantity of cement into the site of Sloane Lodge and Sloane House. The lorries never adhered to the Traffic Management scheme and would stack as early as 7:15 in South Parade, Carlyle Square and Elm Park Gardens with engines running. An Alliance of Residents was formed to report this but nothing was ever achieved. I doubt this can ever be effectively managed o

We were also asomewhat shocked to learn, from one of your consultation forums, that for an applicant merely to have produced a CTMP was enough - we were informed that all CMTPs are now approved as a matter of course, and that the Highways Dept will never refuse a CMTP, however ludicrous the amount of disruption it will cause. This cannot be right.

Page 14 paras 34.3.74 Not 'Construction traffic CAN cause ...' but 'Construction traffic INEVITABLY causes ...' (When has it ever not?!) '... must demonstrate ...' - How? Can this be quantified in some way? What recompense to the Council and the Council Tax payer is to be levied to deal with damage to the highway outside the application site, and to resurface the highway subsequently if/when damage occurs? Suggest that the Building Owner be required to pay in full for resurfacing the highway, an

7) Revision: Supporting text Para 34.3.74 • We propose that details relating to construction traffic and whether the building compound and skip location can be accommodated on site or in the highway immediately outside the application site would be more appropriately addressed via condition post grant of any planning permission in the form of a Construction Management Plan. • Alternatively if further detail is required at the application stage further clarification on the level of de

Paragraph 2.7 Box 1 Paras 34.3.74, 34.3.75 and 34.3.76 We agree with these paragraphs. Although outside the scope of this policy document, the Council should be aware of the inadequacies of the party walls legislation in its application to basements.

Paragraph 34.3.74 &. Policy CL7i It is inappropriately premature to require details of construction traffic activity at application stage because the Local Highways Authority need to assess the proposals at implementation stage of the development, having regard to other development being carried out in the vicinity at that time a nd not at the original application stage.

Paragraphs 34.3.74/75/76 propose the preparation of a Basement Impact Assessment prior to submitting a planning application. Our comments are as follows: - It is proposed that any planning application for a basement must include a Demolition and Construction Management Plan (DCMP) and a Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) and that these need to be approved by the Bi-Borough Director of Environmental Health and the Bi-Borough Director of Transportation and Highways respectively prior to

vii) Traffic effects Building contractors are 'can-do' people. They can always find ways to solve construction and transport problems. But this does not mean that such solutions are acceptable in a high-density residential district. In some cases the burdens of obstruction, noise and air pollution imposed on residents for long periods are intolerable. This needs to be taken into account by traffic officers in assessing applications and drafting conditions.

14. We also hope that the Council will be true to its stated policy on expecting the building compound and the skip location can be accommodated on site or in the highway immediately outside the application site. There have been applications for basement developments in mews, narrow cul-de-sacs or under buildings with no vehicular access. In these cases, it may make more sense to site skips elsewhere (provided it is not in front of somebody else's house) and to bring out spoil by hand. We note,

34.3.74 The Society welcomes the requirement for the technical studies to be submitted with the application and approved as part of the approval of any scheme. As part of any CTMP the Society would like to see consideration of restricting working hours so that there is a break during the day for example from midday to 14.00 hours.
