Additional documents:

Decision:

Planning permission refused.

Minutes:

Registered Speaker: Tony Lang (Applicant/Agent).

 

After careful consideration it was proposed by Councillor Peter Gabbott and Councillor Morwood, and a decision was subsequently taken (12:0:1) that the application was refused for the following reasons:

 

1.    The development is inappropriate development in the Green Belt and is harmful by definition. The applicant has not demonstrated that there are very special circumstances which would outweigh the harm to the Green Belt and the development is, therefore, contrary to the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework.

2.    The development is an incongruous and discordant feature within the streetscene and fails to respect the character of the immediate locality. The development is, therefore, contrary to policy BNE1 of the Local Plan 2012-2026 and the Council's Householder Design Guidance Supplementary Planning Document.
