Declaration of Interest

Members are requested to indicate at this stage in the proceedings any items on the agenda in which they intend to declare an interest. Members are reminded that if the interest is a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest (as defined in the Members’ Code of Conduct) they must leave the room for the whole of that item. If the interest is not a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest, but is such that a member of the public could reasonably regard it as being so significant that it is likely that it would prejudice their judgement of the public interest (as explained in the Code of Conduct) then they may make representations, but then must leave the meeting for the remainder of the item.

Minutes:

Councillor Ken Jones declared a personal interest in Item 6 – Land at School Lane and Golden Hill Lane – and would not take part in the vote but was able, under the Code of Conduct for Elected Members, to remain in the meeting during the consideration of the application.

07/2018/5820/OUT - Land at 448 Croston Road, Leyland pdf icon PDF 303 KB

Report of the Director of Planning and Property attached.

Additional documents:

Decision:

RESOLVED: (Unanimously)

 

That the application be refused for the following reasons:

 

1.    The proposed development would result in piecemeal development which would not integrate well with the wider proposal for the comprehensive development of ‘Site W’. The proposal is therefore contrary to the requirements of Policy C3 of the South Ribble Local Plan.

 

2.    The submission fails to demonstrate that a residential development can be accommodated on the site without appearing ‘shoe-horned in’, to the detriment of the character and appearance of the area. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policy 17 of the Core Strategy and Policy G17 of the South Ribble Local Plan.

 

3.    The submission fails to demonstrate that a residential development on the site can be accessed without resulting in an unacceptable impact on highway safety. The proposal is therefore contrary to para. 109 of the NPPF and Policy G17 of the South Ribble Local Plan.

 

4.    No evidence has been provided to demonstrate why discharge options, specifically into the ground (infiltration), to a surface water body or a surface water sewer, cannot be utilised. Therefore the proposed drainage strategy is contrary to Policy 29 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy and the Planning Practice Guidance hierarchy.

 

5.    The submission fails to demonstrate that the development would not present a surface water drainage risk that could lead to flooding on-site and/or off-site. Therefore the proposal is contrary to the requirements of Policy 29 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy, the NPPF and the Planning Practice Guidance hierarchy.
