Planning permission refused.

Registered speaker: Katie Howarth (Agent)

 

After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor Chris France, seconded by Councillor Alex Hilton and a decision was subsequently taken (unanimously) that the application be refused for the following reason:

 

1.    The application proposes a level of affordable housing that is below that required by policy 7 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy. The financial viability case put forward by the applicant does not adequately justify the lower level of affordable housing provision and does not meet the requirements of the National Planning Policy Framework and National Planning Practice Guidance.
