Additional documents:

Decision:

Outline planning permission granted.

Minutes:

Cllr Paul Walmsley left the room.

 

After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor Alan Whittaker, seconded by Councillor Keith Iddon, and subsequently RESOLVED (9:5:0) – That outline planning permission be granted, subject to conditions limiting the timescale for the submission of the Reserved Matters application and its scope; detailing approved plans, specifying  the energy performance requirements of the dwelling and an occupancy condition ensuring that the occupancy of the dwelling is restricted to workers at the associated equine business ; the wording of which be delegated to the Director of Customer and Digital in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair.

 

Members came to the decision for the reasons set out below:

 

1.    The proposed development has demonstrated very special circumstances that outweigh the definitional harm to the Green Belt and other harm through encroachment.

2.    It was not practicable for the applicant to arrive at the site in the required time to attend to his animals from his dwelling 325m away, given the number of occasions he would be required on site in addition to the lack of a footpath along the highway.

 

Cllr Paul Walmsley returned.
