Site requirements:

  • Heritage Impact Assessment to assess the impact on World Heritage Site designation and heritage assets. In addition a Heritage, Design and Access Statement and a World Heritage Site Checklist would be required.
  • The quality of design, form and massing should be sympathetic to the character of Staveley Conservation Area.
  • Landscape design should include strong boundaries and trees on the frontage to enhance the setting of the character of Staveley Conservation Area.
  • Surface water drainage strategy is required which demonstrates that development incorporates SUDS due to the topography of the site. Proposals must ensure greenfield runoff rates are not exceeded to ensure development does not increase the risk of flooding elsewhere.
  • Extended Phase 1 Habitats Survey to establish potential ecological constraints to development. This will inform the requirement or otherwise for further surveys.
  • The River Gowan is a tributary of the River Kent which is a designated Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) so development, including construction, must avoid adverse impact on the designated watercourse.
  • The scale and type of development will need to safeguard local and residential amenity.
  • A Transport Assessment and Travel Plan may be required depending on the nature and scale of development proposed.
  • Sewerage capacity issues may need to be investigated at the time of an application.
  • A project level Habitat Regulations Assessment will be required for any development proposal.
