7.    PUBLIC FORUM
Brandon Town Council recently received several planning applications that aroused concern amongst local residents. The Town Council responded to public opinion by holding this Special Meeting to help address the various problems that some people envisage. Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer; Mr Andrew Wilson, FHDC Housing Manager; Ms Helen Skoyles, Business Development Manager, Flagship Housing Group and Mr Paul Dunthorn, Architect for the Flagship Housing Group, were present. They kindly accepted invitations to attend and take questions from both Council Members and the public. The two major planning applications were:

Planning Reference No. F/2003/1010/FUL: Land between Cedar Way and The Chase (off Green Road) Brandon. Erection of 83 dwellings (Major Development). Applicant: Flagship Housing Group

Planning Reference No. F/2003/1089/FUL: Land between 169 and 177 London Road, Brandon (known locally as The Sandgalls). Erection of 16 dwellings (Major Development).  Applicant: Flagship Housing Group

Mrs Marsden 64, Rowan Drive, Brandon: wanted to know when The Sandgalls development would commence and how long it would take to complete.
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: informed the meeting this would depend upon planning permission. The developers would be allowed five years to commence building from permission being granted, but this period could also be extended.
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: explained how both the proposed Sandgalls and Green Road developments had been advertised. Observations and objections had been invited. The plans had only been accepted in principle and there was a need to consider how they would impact upon the neighbourhood. The plans should go through the Planning Committee stage during March 2004. The preferred deadline for receiving objections from the public is 30 January 2004, but extensions would be given.
Mr Jervis - residence backs onto The Sandgalls: claimed that the Environment agency have no records of what materials that went into this landfill site. He also asked whether remedial work could be undertaken on the land.
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: the FHDC Planning Department consults with FHDC Environmental Health Department who advise on what conditions have to be met. For example, a land contamination examination would be carried out and the report would be vetted.
The Vice Chairman Cllr Mrs E. Milner: believed that affordable housing is always a good thing. However, she was concerned about the infrastructure in Brandon. Schools and Doctors cannot support a bigger local population. Cllr Mrs E. Milner thought it might be better to first improve the infrastructure.
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: with larger planning applications, SCC is required to give advice on the likely impact a new development will have on major services, such as education and roads. This is all done before planning permission is given. The new developer can also be required to contribute towards improving these services.
Cllr Mr N A Vant: emphasised that Brandon desperately needs a new by-pass, yet more houses are being built when the roads are choked up and the infrastructure is already inadequate.
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: it would be a pipe dream to think these two major developments would assist Brandon in getting a new by-pass, but that is a separate issue.
Cllr Mr A P Saxby: pointed out the other proposed Flagship Housing development in Princes Close, making a total of 103 new houses in Brandon. The roads already flood when it rains because drains cannot cope and there is also the problem of overflowing sewerage.
Mr White, The Chase, Brandon: agreed that the infrastructure needs to be improved before development takes place, especially the drainage system. He also stated that the access/exit road for the Green Road development meets Green Road at a point where road traffic accidents frequently occur.
Ms Helen Skoyles, Business Development Manager, Flagship Housing Group: explained how the Green Road development would be gradually phased. A bid for only 51 houses is underway. The other houses are subject to a 2 year delay due to the Housing Corporation funding process.
Mrs Betty Burke, 169, London Road (next door to The Sandgalls): there is already a considerable problem with vehicles parking on the footpath and grass verges outside her home. Building houses on that land would increase this problem.
Mrs Moore: also objected to access to The Sandgalls development being opposite 130 – 132 London Road, which will only cause greater traffic problems.
The Chairman Cllr Ms J S Bourton: informed the Meeting that the proposed Sandgalls development had been reduced from 16 to 13 dwellings.
Cllr Mr E V Ashley: wondered whether FHDC could prove ownership of The Sandgalls. He also questioned why that Authority had used bollards to block access to that land when it was being used for parking. Cllr Mr E V Ashley wanted to know whether FHDC could produce a legal document proving who owns the land.
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: directed any enquiries regarding ownership to FHDC Estates department.
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: said that 10-15 years ago an exercise was undertaken by Brandon Parish Council to establish ownership of the Sandgalls. A document was found stating Mildenhall Parish Council owned that land at that time. An agreement was subsequently reached whereby the site could only be used for the building of social housing. The reason for traffic bollards being erected was to prevent Travellers from camping there.
Cllr Mr P MacLoughlin: was under the impression that The Sandgalls was to be used as a play area.
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: asked whether a condition of phasing could be placed upon a planning application.
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: confirmed that it could but required a good reason because such a condition can be objected too.
Cllr Mrs J A Ahern: emphasised the need for phasing due to the current lack of infrastructure.
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: was concerned as much as any Town Councillor about the lack of infrastructure. However, these developments will also provide much needed affordable housing for younger people in Brandon.
Cllr Mr A P Saxby: what percentage of housing has to be used to accommodate asylum seekers and refugees as opposed to the people of Brandon?
Ms Helen Skoyles, Business Development Manager, Flagship Housing Group: occupants will be taken from the FHDC housing waiting list.
Mr Andrew Wilson, FHDC Housing Manager: added that the Asylum Seekers dispersal policy was a national initiative with no significant impact on Brandon.
Cllr Mr P MacLoughlin: drew attention to Astor Court, Brandon that was allocated as sheltered housing. He claimed anyone was accommodated thereafter.
Mr Andrew Wilson, FHDC Housing Manager: described how dwellings on the Green Road scheme would be apportioned. One third would be shared ownership while the remainder would be rented. A percentage would always be retained for rent and new occupants drawn from the FHDC housing waiting list.
Mrs Betty Burke: enquired as to why cheap private houses at a reasonable mortgage rate could not be provided.
Mr Andrew Wilson, FHDC Housing Manager: explained in detail how market influences affect house prices and properties are sold on. It is not possible to control such market forces.
Mr Jervis - residence backs onto The Sandgalls: was still concerned about possible underground contamination at The Sandgalls. The land-fill is noticeably higher than the surrounding area and he was worried in case the land was simply levelled exposing his young family to possible asbestos or mercury contamination.
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: promised to note Mr Jervise’s telephone number and ensure that a Scientific Officer contacts him. She assured him that proper measures can be put in place to protect residents.
Cllr Mrs J A Ahern: when would the results of any contamination tests be made public? Also, how many properties are set aside for disabled people?
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: the reports on any land contamination tests would be made public.
Ms Helen Skoyles, Business Development Manager, Flagship Housing Group:  the Flagship Housing Group would work closely with FHDC to identify properties allocated to people with mobility difficulties or other special needs. The necessary facilities would be designed into these homes at the construction stage.
Mr White: wished to know whether FHDC would receive income from selling the land to the Flagship Housing Group.
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: if land is not sold by 31 March 2004 the Government will claw back 20% of the proceeds. FHDC would, therefore, lose 3 million pounds that would otherwise go into the revenue account.
Mr White: will the developer be responsible for contamination examination of the land at the Sandgalls?
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: stated the developers would be responsible.
Ms Helen Skoyles, Business Development Manager, Flagship Housing Group:  revealed that the Flagship Housing Group have not yet investigated The Sandgalls land-fill as being a viable building site.
Mr Mark Skinner: objected to thirteen houses being squeezed onto such a small area of land at the Sandgalls. Vehicle movement would further add to problems already caused by congestion on London Road. He also disapproved of the “intense” development off Green Road. Why was such a high density development being built instead of creating much needed amenity space instead? After all, it is public money that is being spent.
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: Government guidelines lay down how to make the best use of development land in order to preserve greenbelt areas. Brownfield sites within Towns are meant to accommodate 30 to 50 houses per hectare. The current equivalent in Brandon is 36 houses to the hectare on the Sandgalls scheme and 37 houses to the hectare on the Green Road development. These are both well within the Government range. The Government would most certainly question less than 30 units to the hectare.
Mrs Carol Beech: did not support the Governmental density rules. This results in very small houses with very small gardens and very small just about everything else. She does not object to the need for affordable social housing but, again, the existing infrastructure in Brandon cannot sustain a larger population.
Mrs Moore: asked if there are Government guidelines on play areas instead of trapping children inside houses and causing more hooliganism.
Ms Rachel Almond, FHDC Planning Officer: The FHDC Local Plan deals with the provision of public spaces in conjunction with Leisure Services. The Green Road development does, in fact, have an adjoining wooded play area.
Cllr Mr N A Vant: was not reassured by the density guidelines in view of previous Government housing policies being later solved with dynamite.
Mr Mark Skinner: asked why FHDC had not offered this land for sale to private developers at a good market price. He also reiterated his concern about high density planning.
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: pointed out that fourteen dwelling planning applications had previously gone to appeal but were refused because of too few houses.
Mr Andrew Wilson, FHDC Housing Manager: reassured the meeting that the overall aim was not simply to maximise the number of houses.
Mrs Denise Hill: wished to know what type of houses would be rented.
Ms Helen Skoyles, Business Development Manager, Flagship Housing Group:  did not have that information at hand.
Mr Andrew Wilson, FHDC Housing Manager: people are offered a range of accommodation across a range of tenures.
The Vice Chairman Cllr Mrs E. Milner: voiced her concern about inadequate infrastructure. Nevertheless, she stated we must remain positive about building affordable housing and added that there is lots of room for improvement with regard to the current proposals.
Cllr Mrs J A Ahern: showed concern over the absence of any outdoor play area on The Sandgalls planning application. She highlighted how measurements on the plans were obviously wrong.
Mr Jervis - residence backs onto The Sandgalls: building houses for low income families and assuming they all have cars to travel outside the area to visit a doctor or dentist is a paradox. He also described how, when living in Coronation Place, Brandon, he experienced terrible problems with drains and sewers overflowing.
Ms Helen Skoyles, Business Development Manager, Flagship Housing Group: issues surrounding drainage and contamination will be thoroughly investigated because the risk sits with the Flagship Housing Group.
Mr White: a phased development on the Green Road project still cannot be supported by the present state of infrastructure in Brandon. Phasing will not solve the overall problem. Mr White also asked if FHDC has a contingency plan to ensure that Council does not lose out as a result of these schemes.
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: answered Mr White by saying “No”.
Mr Mark Skinner: enquired about how many outstanding housing planning applications currently exist in Brandon.
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: answered by stating “about 50”.
Cllr Mr A P Saxby: pointed out that the Flagship housing Group also submitted a planning application for the erection of four houses in Princes Close, Brandon. This proposed development is on land presently used for access to the rear gardens of houses fronting Manor Road. Cllr Mr A P Saxby asked for an assurance that this access would be maintained.
Ms Helen Skoyles, Business Development Manager, Flagship Housing Group: plans do exist for an access road to land at the rear of dwellings on Manor Road.
Cllr Mr P R Ridgwell: drew attention to both the Green Road and Sandgalls schemes having a single access road. He believed this could cause a problem in the event of a traffic accident obstructing the only route for emergency vehicles. Cllr Mr P R Ridgwell reiterated the problems with infrastructure in Brandon having reached saturation point and referred to schools, doctors, dentists, roads and car parks not being able to fully sustain demand. He felt this problem ought to be rectified first. The retained Fire Service and Police Service in Brandon were also thought to be overstretched while building more houses could mean more crime. Cllr Mr P R Ridgwell was also concerned about possible soil contamination at the Sandgalls.
FHDC & SCC Cllr Mr Bill Bishop: informed the Meeting that the land relating to both the Sandgalls and Green Road projects is intended for development. Should these two projects not go ahead, a private developer will build on that land.
Mrs Moore: did not agree with the 31 March 2004 deadline for selling the land. She wanted to know why more time was not taken to sort out the various problems surrounding these developments.
