6 Site C – Taylor Wimpey Detailed Application

Councillors will be aware that the Neighbourhood Plan (Policy ESDQ13) seeks to ensure that development on Sites C, D and F achieves Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. Recent discussions with Taylor Wimpey (on part of Site C) have indicated that achieving such requires the use of Photovoltaics, located on the roof of each dwelling, and the applicant thus questioned (on design and appearance grounds) whether this would be acceptable to the Council or if a lesser standard (Level 3) could be accepted. Whilst other means are available (such as ground/air source heat pumps) to achieve Level 4 that would not be as visible, in view of the fact that the site is visually self-contained in landscape terms and achieving Level 4 is a clear objective of the Neighbourhood Plan, the use of photovoltaics has been accepted in this instance.
