Barton Farm Village Way
Aylesbeare Exeter
Prior approval for proposed change of use of agricultural buildings to 3 no
larger dwellings and 1 no smaller dwelling (Use Class C3) and associated
operational development under Class Q(a) and Q(b).
Withdrawn 15th Feb 2021

 Council comments: Aylesbeare Parish Council is concerned about the safety for vehicles,cyclists and
                                 pedestrians as the entrance/exit to this part of the development has limited visibility and no
                                 splay is planned.
                                 The Council also hopes that the driveways for these new properties will be made with
                                 permeable paving (as specified for the first phase of the development).  If not, the drainage of
                                 surface water could easily become an issue for the properties of Church Close who have
                                 experienced flooding in their back gardens due to surface water draining from the existing farm

 20/2498/FUL Dec 2020
Perkins Village
Proposed machinery storeAwaiting Decision
  Council comments:  Aylesbeare Parish Council is concerned about this application because of the adjacent
                                   footpath and the drainage.                            

                                   Footpath no.2 runs behind the proposed building and is not shown on the maps submitted
                                   with the application.   Aylesbeare Parish Council would like confirmation that the Public Right
                                   of Way will not be affected by this new building.

                                      The drainage proposed is to be soakaways. The site is on top of a bank and footpath 2 where it joins
                                      the road normally has a large puddle adjacent to it.
  The gate into the farmyard (between the chicken
                                      runs and the barn) is only passable wearing wellington boots due to the path becoming a quagmire,
                                      especially during the winter.  The positions of the soakaways are not shown.

                                      Will this extra concentration of water lead to springs developing where the bank meets the road
                                      resulting a muddy/wet road surface? The water has to go somewhere.

 20/2506/CPE Nov 2020The Oaks
Certificate of lawfulness to establish lawful use of land and buildings at The
Oaks for equestrian purposes involving grazing, stabling, livery, riding school
and associated storage together with the commercial use of the indoor menage in connection with the equestrian use in breach of condition (C) of planning permission 77/C0741 in excess of 10 years
Awaiting Decision
                                 Council Comments:    Aylesbeare Parish Council strongly believes that The Oaks has NOT
                                                                    been a commercial business for 10 years consecutively.  
                                                                    Further explanation here.

Land To West Of B3180 between the existing houses Tatry and Panorama
West Hill
Proposed new two storey dwelling

Awaiting Decision.



 Council Comments


 Aylesbeare Parish Council objects to this application.
The plot is in open countryside on a site that has not previously had a building on it and has not been designated for development.  The proposed building would be contrary to Strategy 7 of EDDC's Local Plan and would set an unacceptable precedent if it was given planning permission.

Updated 13th Novemeber 2020
Aylesbeare Parish Council has read the architect's letter that refers to our earlier comments.
The Council notes the architect's objections but stands by its original comments.  
The land is agricultural and not designated for building on and all planning applications set precedents as applicants are always keen to give examples where approval has previously been given that matched their subsequent applications.
