17/00533/OUT - Baysbrown, Copthurst Lane, Whittle-Le-Woods, Chorley PR6 8LR pdf icon PDF 337 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Outline planning permission refused.

Minutes:

Registered speakers: Adrian Melling (objector) and Louise Leyland (agent)

 

RESOLVED (unanimously) – That outline planning permission be refused for the reasons set out below.

 

Reasons: 1) The proposed development would be located within the Green Belt as defined by the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026. It would not constitute infilling and is not located within a village. The proposed development would have a greater impact on the openness of the Green Belt than the existing development and would result in other harm to the Green Belt as a consequence of the substantial amount of hardstanding to the front of the proposed dwellings with no boundary treatments which would result in a visual urbanising of the immediate vicinity. It is not considered that there are very special circumstances to outweigh the harm to the Green Belt and, therefore, the proposed development is inappropriate development contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework, Policy 1(f) of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy of the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026.

 

2) The proposed development, by virtue of its density and massing, would have an unacceptable impact on the general appearance of the application site. The proposed development is, therefore, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework and policy BNE5 of the Local Plan 2012 – 2026.

 

3) The proposed development, by virtue of its density and building to plot ratio, would result in a substantial amount of hardstanding to the front of the proposed dwellings with no boundary treatments and would result in a visual urbanising of the immediate vicinity which would be detrimental to and out of character with the existing street scene of this part of Cophurst Lane. The proposed development is, therefore, contrary to policy BNE1 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026.

17/00521/FUL - Cockers Farm, Long Lane, Heath Charnock, Chorley PR6 9EE pdf icon PDF 320 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Full planning permission refused and enforcement action authorised.

Minutes:

Registered speakers: Paul Prescott (objector) and Joe Makepeace (agent)

 

RESOLVED (unanimously) – That full planning permission be refused for the reasons set out below.

 

Reasons: The proposed development would be located within the Green Belt as defined by the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026. The proposed development would have substantial impact on the openness of the Green Belt, would conflict with the purposes of including land within the Green Belt and as such represents inappropriate development. No very special circumstances have been presented which 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.

 

RESOLVED (unanimously) – That enforcement action be authorised in relation to the unauthorised development in consultation with the Head of Legal, Democratic and HR Services.
