Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Made at meeting: 21/09/2022 - Planning Committee

Decision published: 23/09/2022

Effective from: 21/09/2022

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. The proposed development is not considered to represent limited infilling and would be inappropriate development in the Green Belt and, therefore, harmful by definition. It is not considered that there are very special circumstances to overcome the definitional harm to the Green Belt. The proposal is, therefore, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework, Policy 1(f) of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy and policy HS7 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026.

21/09/2022 - 21/01475/FULMAJ - DXC Technology, Euxton House, Euxton Lane, Euxton, Chorley ref: 12567    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Made at meeting: 21/09/2022 - Planning Committee

Decision published: 23/09/2022

Effective from: 21/09/2022

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.
