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.

19/00683/FUL - 31 - 33 Cunliffe Street, Chorley, PR7 2BA pdf icon PDF 95 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Application refused.

Minutes:

Registered speakers: Malcolm Beverley (Objector).

 

After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor Alex Hilton, seconded by Councillor Martin Boardman and a decision was subsequently taken (unanimously) that the application be refused by reason of the over-intensification of the building and the layout proposed. This would result in a poor quality, oppressive environment and does not afford any usable outdoor amenity space. This would be detrimental to the living conditions of future occupiers of the development and of neighbouring properties. The proposed development is, therefore, contrary to policy BNE1 (Design Criteria for New Development) of the adopted Chorley Local Plan 2012-2026.
