16/00489/OUTMAJ - Land Between Pear Tree Lane and School Lane, Pear Tree Lane, Euxton pdf icon PDF 310 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Planning permission refused.

Minutes:

Registered speakers: Sue Shannon (objector), Aidy Riggott (Parish Councillor), and Danny Gee (Ward Councillor)

 

RESOLVED (unanimously) – That the application be refused, for the following reasons.

 

Reasons: The proposed development is contrary to Policy BNE3 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012-2026 that allocates the site as Safeguarded Land and paragraph 85 of the National Planning Policy Framework that provides for the allocation of land between the urban area and the greenbelt, to meet longer term development needs stretching well beyond the plan period. Paragraph 85 also makes clear that Planning Permission for permanent development of safeguarded land should only be granted following a Local Plan Review. There are no material considerations that would indicate that permission should be granted. In particular the Council has a five year supply of deliverable housing sites and neither paragraph 49 or 14 of the Framework are engaged.

 

Insufficient information has been provided with regard to the design of the proposed pedestrian improvements/traffic calming on pear Tree Lane for pedestrian linkage to the wider built environment (Buckshaw Village/Chorley Town centre). As submitted, the applicant’s Transport Assessment has not demonstrated the site can provide safe and suitable pedestrian access or connectivity to integrate with the existing built environment, or measures to encourage sustainable public transport contrary to ;  hence the development is not in line with a number of key DP policies ST1 and BNE1 and paragraphs 7 and 32 of the NPPF including the three dimensions of sustainable development.

 

The proposed development is contrary to Policy 14 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy and Paragraph 14 of the National Planning Policy Framework in that the proposed development will not provide for the required education contribution to provide accessible local services that reflect the community’s needs that result directly from the development.
