16/00533/FUL - Pipers Private Nursery, 11 Southport Road, Chorley, PR7 1LB pdf icon PDF 287 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Full planning permission refused.

Minutes:

Registered speaker: Lorraine Stones (applicant)

 

RESOLVED (unanimously) – That full planning permission be refused, for the reasons in the report and addendum as set out below with the second reason for refusal to include the impact on the amenity of neighbouring properties; the wording of which be delegated to the Director of Customer and Digital in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair.

 

It has not been demonstrated that the use of a condition or legal agreement to secure parking permits for staff members in perpetuity meets the tests as set out in the National Planning Policy Framework and therefore it is recommended that the application be refused on highway safety grounds in accordance with the Chorley Local Plan (2012-2026) policies BNE1 and ST4 and the guidance contained within paragraph 32 of the NPPF (2012) as the benefits of the scheme do not outweigh the harm.

 

It is considered that the proposed increase in pupil numbers from 55 to 70 would result in an increase in demand for parking on Shaftesbury Place thereby exacerbating existing poor traffic conditions. It is considered that in highway safety terms, the cumulative impacts of development would be severe; contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework that safe and suitable access to the site should be achieved for all people.
