Decision details

23/00616/PIP - Whitegates, 75 Gorsey Lane, Mawdesley

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Permission in principle refused for the following reason:


“The proposed development would be inappropriate development in the Green Belt and, therefore, harmful by definition.


There would also be other harm as a result of sprawl and encroachment. It is not considered that there are very special circumstances to overcome the definitional harm to the Green Belt and additional harm caused through sprawl and encroachment. The proposal is, therefore, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework.
