Planning permission refused.

RESOLVED (8:5:1) – That the application be refused, for the following reasons.

 

Reasons: The proposed development would be located within the Green Belt as defined by the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026.

No very special circumstances have been submitted that outweigh the harm to the Green Belt, which would be caused by the proposed development. As such the proposed development is contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework, Policy 1 (f) of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy and policy HS7 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026.

Councillor Whittaker subsequently proposed that the application be deferred for a site visit. The motion was seconded by Councillor Iddon. A vote was taken and the motion was lost (6:7:1).
