Basingstoke Golf Course – S73 Approval

We are pleased to confirm that the S73 application to vary a number of conditions attached to the outline planning permission has been approved by Basingstoke & Deane Council.  The primary reason for the application was to vary a noise related condition which was considered to go beyond standard practice and industry guidance, and was resulting in the extensive provision of MVHR at the site.

Working with specialist Acoustic consultants Suono and having taken advice from leading Counsel, a reasoned case was put forward seeking a relaxation of the requirements of the condition to enable more pragmatic mitigation measures to be utilised.  Having agreed a revised wording with the council, a number of other conditions were deleted or rationalised, having been fully or partially discharged through the first phase reserved matters application.

The resultant approval provides a rationalised and workable framework of phased and compliance conditions that the remaining phases of the development can be brought forward under.  The application for phase 2 of the development is due to be submitted shortly.
