Declarations of Any Interests

Members are reminded of their responsibility to declare any pecuniary interest in respect of matters contained in this agenda.


If you have a pecuniary interest you must withdraw from the meeting. Normally you should leave the room before the business starts to be discussed. You do, however, have the same right to speak as a member of the public and may remain in the room to enable you to exercise that right and then leave immediately. In either case you must not seek to improperly influence a decision on the matter.


No declarations were made.

21/00281/FULHH - 12 Langton Close, Eccleston, Chorley, PR7 5UU pdf icon PDF 334 KB

Additional documents:


Full planning permission refused.


Registered speakers: Paul Bamber (Objector)


After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor Alan Whittaker and seconded by Councillor Harold Heaton and subsequently resolved (8:1:2) that the application be refused for the following reason: - The proposed single storey rear extension with balcony above would by reason of its siting, scale and massing result in an overbearing impact on the outlook from the rear habitable room windows in no.11 Langton Close and a loss of privacy to the rooms served by those windows which would be detrimental to the level of amenity enjoyed by the occupiers of this neighbouring property. The proposed development is, therefore, contrary to The National Planning Policy Framework, policy HS5 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012-2026 and Chorley Council's Householder Design Guidance Supplementary Planning Document.
