18.DC.37e

18/00863/OUTMAJ - Land at Carrington Road, Adlington pdf icon PDF 144 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Planning permission refused.

Minutes:

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

 

1.    The proposed development would be located within an area of Safeguarded Land as defined by the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026. The Council has a five year housing land supply as required by the National Planning Policy Framework. The proposal therefore conflicts with policy BNE3 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026. It is not considered that the material considerations put forward in favour of the development are sufficient to outweigh the presumption against it.
