19/00767/FUL - Land Adjacent to 1 Melling Close, Bolton Road, Adlington pdf icon PDF 102 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Full planning permission refused.

Minutes:

Registered speakers: John Hayes (Objector) and Cllr Peter Wilson (Ward Councillor)

 

After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor John Dalton, seconded by Councillor Danny Gee and a decision was subsequently taken (unanimously) that full planning permission be refused for the reason set out below;

 

The proposed development by reason of its siting and scale would result in a loss of light and overbearing and oppressive environment for the occupiers of the adjacent property, 62A Bolton Road, which would be detrimental to the level of residential amenity they currently enjoy. The proposed development is, therefore, contrary to policy 17 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy (2012), policy BNE1 of the Chorley Local Plan (2012-2026).

Decision:

Full planning permission refused.

Minutes:

Registered speaker: Rebecca Gilbert-Rule (Objector)

 

After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor Danny Gee that the decision be deferred to allow Members of the Planning Committee the opportunity to visit the site of the proposals. The motion was seconded by Councillor Alan Whittaker. A vote was taken, and the motion was lost (4:7:0)

 

It was proposed by Councillor Martin Boardman, seconded by Councillor Alex Hilton and a decision was subsequently taken (8:0:3) that full planning permission be refused for the reasons set out below;

1)    The proposed 10m high lighting columns would be out of character and overly prominent features within the surrounding Queen’s Road and Southport Road Locally Important Area as defined by the Chorley Local Plan 2012-2026 resulting in a detrimental impact to both the street scene and the surrounding locality. This is contrary to policy BNE8 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012-2026

2)    The applicant has failed to provide sufficient evidence to demonstrate that the erection of 6no, 10m high lighting columns would not result in light spillage beyond the bowling green that would result in detrimental impact on the occupiers of neighbouring residential properties. This is contrary to policy BNE6 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012-2016.

 

The wording of the reasons for refusal to be delegated to the Director of Customer and Digital in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair.
