Minutes:

The Senior Planning Officer presented the report to members.

 

Mr B Lees, objector, addressed the committee urging them to support the Planning Inspector and the previous committee’s decisions and refuse the application. He highlighted that the application would have a detrimental visual impact on the countryside which outweighed the benefits of the development. He requested that additional notes be included in the refusal notice in relation unauthorised works ceasing and the submission of any future application that utilise the proposed access point would be unacceptable.

 

Councillor D Harrison, County Councillor, addressed the committee highlighting that the submitted application had had a negative impact on the residents of the village and the site had become untidy with building across the brook and constant burning of rubbish. He felt that the application had failed to meet any planning policies which had led to both the committee and Inspector refusing the previous application. He urged the committee to refuse the application once again.

 

Councillor R Blunt, Ward Member, addressed the committee highlighting that the committee’s decision to overturn the original recommendation on the previous application had been supported by the Planning Inspector and that he was surprised to see a slightly amended application back. He noted that the site was in an elevated position and along with the drive and hardstanding would have a detrimental impact on area.

 

In determining the application members had regard to the fact that the application had only been amended slightly from the original application, therefore the proposed development would still have a detrimental overbearing impact on the countryside and surrounding area. The Planning and Development Team Manager advised  that, should the application be refused and was lost at appeal again, the applicant could not submit another application for 2 years, that the additional notes from residents would not be required, as the concerns raised would be picked up by planning enforcement, such as looking at the untidy land; and that each application had to be considered on its own merit, therefore the authority could not stop the applicant from submitting further applications for a development significantly different to that now proposed..

 

The recommendation to refuse the application in accordance with the officer’s recommendation, was moved by Councillor J Legrys and seconded by Councillor J Hoult.

 

The Chairman put the motion to the vote. A recorded vote being required, the voting was as detailed below.

 

RESOLVED THAT:

 

The application be refused in accordance with the recommendation of the Head of Planning and Infrastructure.
