Decision:

Planning permission refused for the following reasons:-

 

1.    The proposed development would have a greater impact on the openness of the greenbelt and the purpose of including land within it than the existing development on that part of the site that is previously developed, and would encroach onto open countryside and is therefore inappropriate development in the greenbelt. Substantial weight attaches to the harm to the greenbelt by reason of inappropriateness and further harm arising by reason of the impact of the proposed development on the openness of the greenbelt and encroachments. The benefits associated with the proposed development would not clearly outweigh the resulting harm and therefore do not constitute individually or cumulatively very special circumstances required if inappropriate development is to be approved in the greenbelt in accordance with paragraph 148 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

2.    The proposed development would have an unacceptable impact on highway safety by virtue of the increased traffic movements and inadequate highway infrastructure contrary to paragraph 109 of the National Planning Policy Framework and policy BNE 1 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026.

3.    The potential noise nuisance and disturbance associated with the vehicular traffic movements that would be generated throughout the use of the development would result in a harmful impact on the amenity of residents in the locality contrary to policy BNE 1 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026.
