Items For Discussion:

Delegated Powers

On 31 July 2019, the Board agreed to the wording of the attached Scheme of Delegation which sets the scope of applications which are to be determined by the Director rather than the Board. Following discussions with Attorney General‘s Chambers, this scheme has been revised to the attached V.2 dated 06 November 2019.

The Board agreed to the wording of this revised document, which is intended to form the basis of a Statutory Instrument to be drafted imminently.

Emergency Quarrying for Slate

On 09 October 2019, in light of the recognised urgent need for a supply of slate to repair the roofs of properties which were damaged by Hurricane Humberto in September 2019, the Board agreed to temporarily waive the usual advertisement requirements for those planning applications proposing quarrying for the purposes of cutting slate under Section 13 of the Development and Planning [Application Procedure] Rules 1997, subject to the following guidelines:

  • Advertisement requirements be waived for such applications received by no later than 31 October 2019.
  • Proposals for substantial quarrying on sites which have not been previously quarried or where a Conservation Base Zone and/or Conservation Area would be affected shall be advertised in the usual manner.
  • Applications would be reviewed and deemed approved by technical officers.
  • The following conditions would be attached to all approvals.

1. For the avoidance of doubt, the consent hereby granted is for planning permission only. An application for a Building Permit must be submitted within 3 days of the commencement of quarrying operations on site.

2. The hereby approved quarrying shall take place only between the hours of 7am and Rpm Monday through Friday [no Saturdays, Sundays or Public Holidays] unless express written approval is provided by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and all works shall cease within 3 months from the date of commencement of quarrying operations unless an extension is granted by the Board.

3. The hereby approved quarrying operations are specific to the application site and, for the avoidance of doubt, no material shall be brought to the site to be processed.

4.For the avoidance of doubt, the hereby approved quarrying operation shall cease when the stocks of material extracted from the application site have been depleted and reach proposed grades as shown on the hereby approved plans

5. For the avoidance of doubt, the hereby approved quarrying operation is restricted to the defined area on the site as delineated on approved plans.

6. For the avoidance of doubt, the hereby approved quarry operation involves a controlled plant in the form of a slate cutter. A construction permit and operating license for the controlled plant must be obtained from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and submitted with the Building Permit application.

Given the unforeseen delay in quarrying applications being submitted and to address the urgent demand for slate which still exists, the Board agreed to extend these emergency measures to applications which are received by no later than 31 December 2019.

Agenda Reports

The Board was advised by the Acting Senior Planning Officer that, in line with the Minister’s direction for the Department to operate paperless, the Board will no longer be provided with paper copies of agendas. It was recommended that Board members bring laptops or tablets to meetings so the reports can be accessed without having to use paper. The Board queried whether this would be allowed by security of the Dame Lois Browne Evans Building, which officers advised would be investigated.

P0087/19 Type: Final Approval Planner: Paul McDonald

Decision: Approved

Discussion: The technical officer presented the application details to the Board.

The Board queried whether the proposed loft units would be studios. The technical officer advised that these are one bedroom units.

The Board sought clarification on private and communal outdoor space and raised concerns that the location and amount of communal space is not specified. The technical officer advised that private space would be provided in the form of balconies and enclosed gardens and, whilst no communal space is identified on plan, this would be provided in the unenclosed lawned areas and a significant amount of land which can be used as communal open space already exists within the lot. The technical officer further noted that the entire lot is surrounded by Park zoning, so the local area is particularly well served by usable open space.

The Board queried where trash would be stored. The technical officer advised that a condition has been recommended requiring such details to be submitted at building permit stage.

The Board sought clarification as to where the proposed cesspits would be located.

The technical officer advised that this detail is shown on the originally submitted drawings but is omitted on the revised drawings. The Board requested that a condition be included requiring details of the cesspits to be provided at building permit stage.

The Board resolved to support the technical officer’s recommendation to approve the application. The Board Resolved:

To approve the application, as received March 28, 2019, subject to the following conditions:

  • 1. The development hereby permitted shall begin before the expiration of 2 [two] years from the date of this permission.
  • 2. For the avoidance of doubt the consent hereby granted is for planning permission only. Prior to the commencement of building operations a separate application for a building permit must be made and approved, which shall include full details of cesspits to serve the development.
  • 3. In the interests of visual amenity, the entire site subject of this application shall be landscaped in accordance with the hereby approved plans prior to the issuance of a Certificate of Completion and Occupancy. Any trees or shrubs shown on approved plans which are remo\/ed, which die or which become seriously diseased or damaged shall be replaced by trees and shrubs of similar size and species to those originally required to be planted
  • 4. Parking and manoeuvring space for at least 18 cars and 14 cycles shall be established for use in accordance with Policies TPT. 20 and TPT. 22, Chapter 12 of the Draft Bermuda Plan 2018 Planning Statement, prior to the issuance of a Certificate of Completion and Occupancy.
