18/00821/OUT - Land South of the Straits, The Straits, Hoghton pdf icon PDF 166 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Outline planning permission refused.

Minutes:

Registered speakers: Helene Lawson (Objector), Sheila Long (Ward Councillor) and Louise Leyland (Agent). 

 

After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor Chris France, seconded by Councillor Martin Boardman and a decision was subsequently taken (12:0:1) that outline planning permission be refused for the following reason: 

 

The proposed development would be inappropriate development in the Green Belt and therefore harmful by definition. There would also be other moderate visual harm through the urbanising effect of the access road. It is not considered that there are very special circumstances to overcome the definitional harm to the Green Belt and additional harm caused through encroachment. The proposal is therefore contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework.

18/00855/FULMAJ - The Hop Pocket, Carr Lane, Chorley pdf icon PDF 109 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Full planning permission granted, subject to conditions and a Section 106 legal agreement.

Minutes:

Registered speakers: Chris Browne (Objector) and Scott Haverley (Agent) 

 

The Planning Services Manager reported that in addition to the information detailed in the addendum South East Ward Councillors (Cllrs Bradley, Walmsley & Murray) had submitted comments in support of representations made by residents stating the following:

  • We recognise that the development is a more intensive and intrusive use of the site than the previous public house, and in particular will result in loss of amenity to neighbours, principally the residents of 69 Melrose Way and neighbours;
  • There are existing traffic issues in the area that result in localised congestion and nuisance to residence around school drop-off and pick up times and with limited parking for the shops and takeaway adjacent to the site;
  • The issues affecting residents will be further exacerbated by any approval of the application above and therefore ward councillors request the following conditions are applied if approval is considered appropriate:

o   That the ridge heights currently detailed to plots 2,3,4 & 5 which are <1m above those of 69 Melrose Way are conditioned to prevent any deviation either with the voluntary agreement of the developer or by imposed condition

o   That deliveries to the site are not permitted between 8.15-9.15am and 3.00-4.00pm to prevent additional impact to the school pick-up and drop-off issues currently occurring – by imposed condition.

o   That consideration is given to preserving the parking on Carr Lane for the shops and other local services to avoid displacement to surrounding streets either with the voluntary agreement of the developer or by imposed condition.

 

We trust that the above can be supported by the DC committee and that if required a deferral for a site visit be arranged prior to any decision being made in order that members can be fully satisfied as to all the material factors affecting this application

After careful consideration it was proposed by Councillor Alistair Morwood, seconded by Councillor Chris France and a decision was subsequently taken (unanimously) that full planning permission be granted, subject to conditions in the addendum and a Section 106 Legal Agreement. In addition, condition no.4 as detailed on the addendum was amended to ensure that the ridge heights of plots 2, 3, 4 and 5 are no higher than 1 metre above the maximum ridge height of 69 Melrose Way; the wording of the condition was delegated to the Director of Customer and Digital in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair.
