Movements Implications of Development Policy DN2 Movements Implications of Development Development will only be permitted where it is, or can be made, compatible with the transport infrastructure in the area.This should include identification of improvements to encourage walking, cycling and the use of public transport.
Parking Provision Policy DN3 Parking Provision Development proposals should comply with the aim of promoting sustainable travel choices by reducing the amount of land used for car parking but increasing cycle parking facilities. Maximum car parking standards will be set according to location, type of development and public transport accessibility. Minimum cycle parking standards will be retained. Park and Ride schemes will be supported where they form part of an integrated planning and transport strategy for an area.
Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Policy SE2 Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Development for the generation of energy from renewable resources as a contribution to the regional target will be encouraged. Small scale proposals to serve individual buildings, or small groups of buildings, are becoming practicable and will be supported. All types of development should incorporate energy efficiency best practice measures in their design, layout and orientation.The use of combined heat and power or similar technology will be encouraged and will be a prerequisite for all major developments.
Nature Conservation Policy SE7 Nature Conservation Land or water habitats designated as of importance for nature at an international, national, regional or county level will be conserved and enhanced. Development, whether directly or indirectly, which may harm designated sites that are important for nature conservation will only be permitted where it has been clearly demonstrated that the need for the proposal outweighs the need to safeguard the nature conservation importance, and that no alternative site is available.
Housing in Urban Areas Policy H4 Housing in Urban Areas Planning permission will be granted for residential development in the urban areas of Guildford and Ash and Tongham provided that the development: 1 Is in scale and character with the area; 2 Has no unacceptable effect on the amenities enjoyed by the occupants of buildings in terms of privacy and access to sunlight and daylight; 3 Has no unacceptable effect on the existing context and character of the adjacent buildings and immediate surroundings.
General Standards of Development Policy G1 General Standards of Development Proposals will be permitted if they comply with the relevant Local Plan Policies and the following requirements are met: G1 (1) Parking Provision Parking is provided in accordance with the parking policy and parking standards of the plan set out in Chapter 7 and in Appendix 1. G1 (2) Transport Provision, Access, Highway Layout and Capacity Satisfactory access and highway layout is provided and the traffic generated by the development is compatible with the local road network. Appropriate provision has been made for pedestrian, cyclist and public transport facilities. G1 (3) Protection of amenities enjoyed by occupants of buildings The amenities enjoyed by occupants of buildings are protected from unneighbourly development in terms of privacy, access to sunlight and daylight, noise, vibration, pollution, dust and smell. G1 (4) Access for people with disabilities Development to which the public would reasonably have access makes provision for safe and convenient access by people with disabilities. G1 (5) Crime Prevention The design and layout of buildings and surrounding spaces provides for public safety and deters vandalism and crime. G1 (6) Flood Protection Areas of floodplain, identified on the Proposals Map, are safeguarded from development that would increase the risk to people or property from flooding. G1 (7) Land Drainage and Public Utility Infrastructure Adequate land drainage and public utility infrastructure is in place to meet the needs of the development. G1 (8) Light Pollution External lighting is designed to minimise glare and the spillage of light from the sight. G1 (9) Energy Conservation. The design and layout is energy efficient. G1 (10) Conservation of Water Resources. The design, layout and landscaping is efficient in the use of water. G1 (11) Development on or Close to Contaminated Land Where a proposed development is on or close to contaminated land the applicant demonstrates that the site is safe or can be made so through remedial measures. G1 (12) Safeguarding and Enhancement of the landscape and existing natural features Development is designed to safeguard and enhance the characteristic landscape of the locality and existing natural features on the site, such as, hedgerows, trees, watercourses and ponds which are worthy of protection. G1 (13) Mixed Use Where appropriate the development incorporates or maintains an existing mix of land uses and activities where: (a) The uses are mutually compatible; (b) There is no unacceptable disturbance through traffic, noise, pollution or other adverse effects.
Design Code Policy G5 Design Code Development proposals which do not comply with the following design requirements will not be permitted: G5 (1) Context for Design New development respects established street patterns, plot sizes, building lines, topography, established views, landmark buildings, roof treatment, aspect and relationship with other buildings. G5 (2) Scale, Proportion and Form New buildings respect the scale, height and proportions and materials of the surrounding environment. G5 (3) Space Around Buildings Existing spaces of value are respected and new spaces created through development should have an attractive and identifiable character. G5 (4) Street Level Design Buildings and spaces at pedestrian level provide visual interest and a sense of place and identity. G5 (5) Layout The built layout is easily understood by the user and creates areas of identifiable character. G5 (6) Important Public Views and Roofscape Important public views are protected and opportunities to create attractive new views and vistas are provided and encouraged. G5 (7) Materials and Architectural Detailing Materials are of a high standard and harmonise with surrounding buildings. Detailing on new buildings is durable and reinforces the identity and character of an area. G5 (8) Traffic, Parking and Design The visual impact of traffic and associated access and parking is minimised, especially in sensitive locations. G5 (9) Landscaping Design A high standard of landscaping, to include walls, enclosures and paving schemes, as well as trees and other planting is provided to ensure that new development integrates into the existing townscape and landscape. G5 (10) Open Spaces of Value Open spaces, whether public or private, which contribute to the character of an area, in terms of the views they create, the feeling of openness they allow, are protected.
Potential Special Protection Areas Policy NE1 Potential Special Protection Areas (pSPA) and Candidate Special Areas of Conservation (cSAC) Planning permission will not be granted for proposals which are likely to destroy or have an adverse effect directly or indirectly on the nature conservation value of potential Special Protection Areas (pSPA) and candidate Special Areas of Conservation (cSAC), as shown on the Proposals Map.
Species Protection Policy NE4 Species Protection Planning permission will not be granted for any development that would be liable to cause any demonstrable harm to a species of animal or plant or its habitat, protected under British Law unless conditions are attached requiring the developer to take steps to secure their protection.
