That the application be refused for the following reasons:
1. The application site is allocated as Green Belt in Policy G1 of the South Ribble Local Plan. The proposed development would be contrary to the Green Belt designation and is not classed as limited infilling in villages. Therefore, the proposal would not meet exception (e) of paragraph 145 of the NPPF or exception (e) of Policy G1 of the South Ribble Local Plan.
2. The proposal would introduce residential development into an open, green area which would be contrary to Policy 134 of the NPPF which seeks to safeguard the countryside in the Green Belt from encroachment.
