Updates from Richard Morton on the proposed development on Winterton Road
Update 15th January 2019
Contractors are currently on site carrying out an archaeological investigation of the site. This needs to be completed before a planning application can be submitted.
In addition the layout of the scheme is being reviewed attempting to incorporate the initial comments from local residents that they would like to see a wider range of housing, particularly focusing on smaller houses rather then large detached properties.
Update 13th December 2018
The Local Authority has now confirmed that they require trial trenching work to take place on site at Winteringham before a Planning Application can be validated. I have discussed the above with my team and we are now ready to commence archaeological work early in January 2019.
On the back of the earlier archaeological information we received we have been updating the preferred site layout and I hope to be able to send this out at the beginning of January 2019, together with some suggestions as to when a further public meeting could be held, so those with opinions regarding the layout have an opportunity to voice these.
Update 13th November 2018
Richard has been in touch to report that he has now received the geophysics report from the site at Winteringham. The report would indicate that whilst there are no specific features on site which are likely to be of regional importance there are likely to be some archaeological matters of interest below ground tied to the long term use of the site as the Village has developed.
Update 16th October 2018:
Richard has confirmed that the archaeological investigation took place last week and he is now awaiting issue of the report to see whether there is anything of historic significance under the ground which might affect the development plans for the site. The report should be received within the next couple of weeks after which the implications of the report will need to be looked in to. It is hoped that a better idea of the layout for the site and the timetable for future discussions with NLC and the Parish Council will be provided by Richard next month.
He is currently discussing with the Local Authority whether the further archaeological work (i.e. trenching) which is recommended by the geophysics report needs to take place in advance of an Outline Planning Application for development or whether the further work can form a condition of a Planning Consent if the Authority accept the principle of a residential development on this site.
Until he has an outcome to the above discussions Richard is unable to give a firm timetable as to when an application will be submitted but he will be in touch as the situation develops.
September Update 2018: Opportunities and Constraints Plan and the Site Plan.
Richard has been in touch to let the Parish Council know that the archeological assessment of the site has been scheduled for week beginning 8th October 2018. Once the report comes back and is considered alongside the reports from Highways Consultants, Services Consultants, Flood and Drainage Engineers, Planning Consultants and Ecologists Richard will be able to provide further details about the number of houses, size and how they might be arranged.
