Decision:

Full planning permission refused.

Minutes:

Registered speaker: Tony Dixon (Supporter)

 

After careful consideration it was proposed by Councillor Paul Walmsley, seconded by Councillor Christopher France, and subsequently RESOLVED (unanimously) – That full planning permission be refused for the following reason:

 

1.      The siting of four storage containers comprises a series of buildings by virtue of their permanence. The storage containers are inappropriate development in the Green Belt and, therefore, harmful by definition. It is not considered that there are very special circumstances to overcome the definitional harm to the Green Belt. The proposal is, therefore, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework.
