21/01475/FULMAJ - DXC Technology, Euxton House, Euxton Lane, Euxton, Chorley pdf icon PDF 445 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Planning permission refused for the following reasons:

 

1)    The proposed development would result in an unacceptable reduction in the type and quantity of employment land supply contrary to policy 10 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy.

 

2)    The application site is proposed in isolation from residential development patterns and associated amenities resulting in an unsustainable form of development. It would fail to provide connectivity with supporting amenities, which means that the development does not integrate or function well with the surrounding area. The proposal does not, therefore, secure a high-quality inclusive design. The proposal is, therefore, contrary to policy 17 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy 2012 and the National Planning Policy Framework.

Minutes:

Public speaker: George Stevenson (applicant)

 

After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor Danny Gee, seconded by Councillor Adrian Lowe and subsequently resolved 10:0:1 that planning permission was refused for the following reasons:

Decision:

Permission in principal was refused for the following reason:

 

The proposed development would be located within the Green Belt as defined by the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026.

It is not considered that there are very special circumstances to overcome the definitional harm to the Green Belt.
