18/01023/FUL - Land 30 Metres North of 1 Stocks Court, Heskin pdf icon PDF 206 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Full planning permission refused.

Minutes:

After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor Martin Boardman that the decision be deferred to allow Members of the Development Control Committee the opportunity to visit the site of the proposals. The motion was seconded by Councillor Keith Iddon. A vote was taken and the motion was lost (6:8:0).

 

It was proposed by Councillor Paul Walmsley, seconded by Councillor Chris France and a decision was subsequently taken (11:2:1) that full planning permission be refused for the following reason:

 

The proposed development would be inappropriate development in the Green Belt and would be harmful by definition. The applicant has not demonstrated that there are very special circumstances which would outweigh the definitional harm to the Green Belt. The proposal is, therefore, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework.
