The planting shall be maintained in accordance with the approved schedule of maintenance. Any trees or plants which, within a period of five years from the completion of the planting, die, are removed or become seriously damaged or diseased shall be replaced in the next planting season with others of similar size and species. Reason: To ensure the proposed development does not have an adverse effect on the character and appearance of the area in accordance with Policies SWDP 21 and SWDP 25 of South Worcestershire Development Plan.
Development shall not take place until a scheme of surface water drainage, which shall include proposals for sustainable drainage, (SuDS), has been submitted to, and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The approved scheme shall be completed before the development is first brought into use, or in accordance with a timetable to be submitted to and agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.

Positive and Proactive Statement. In dealing with this application, the Council has worked with the applicant by seeking further information following receipt of the application and considering the imposition of conditions. In such ways the Council has demonstrated a positive and proactive manner in seeking solutions to problems arising in relation to the planning application.
Any proposals to alter existing, or construct new, culverts or carry out works in or on an ordinary watercourse will need Land Drainage Consent under s.23; Land Drainage Act 1991 from SWLDP. Such consent will need to be granted prior to any works commencing on site as consent cannot be granted retrospectively. Failure to comply may result in enforcement action being taken by the Lead Local Flood Authority, Worcestershire County Council, under the Act. SWLDP may also exercise powers to require works for maintaining flow of a watercourse where appropriate under s.25 of the Act where the proper flow of water is impeded.
The attention of the applicant is drawn to the need to keep the highway free from any mud or other material emanating from the application site or any works pertaining thereto.
This permission does not authorise the laying of private apparatus within the confines of the public highway. The applicant should apply to the Worcestershire County Council's Community and Response Unit, County Hall, Spetchley Road, Worcester WR5 2NP (telephone 0845 607 2005), for consent under the New Roads and Street works Act 1991 to install private apparatus within the confines of the public highway. Precise details of all works within the public highway must be agreed on site with the Highway Authority.
This permission does not authorise the applicant to carry out works within the publicly maintained highway since such works can only be carried out by the County Council's Approved Contractor following the issue of a license under Section 184 and 278 of the Highways Act, 1980. The applicant should contact Worcestershire County Council's Highways Community and Response Unit, County Hall, Spetchley Road, Worcester WR5 2NP (telephone 0845 607 2005), regarding the issue of the necessary license authorising the access works to be carried out by the County Council's Approved Contractor at the applicant's expense. The applicant should give the County Council sufficient notice to enable, as far as possible, the licence procedure to be carried out so that there is no disruption to the applicant's programme of works.
Drainage arrangements shall be provided to ensure that surface water from the driveway and/or vehicular turning area does not discharge onto the public highway. No drainage or effluent from the proposed development shall be allowed to discharge into any highway drain or over any part of the public highway.
