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.

Decision:

RESOLVED: (Unanimously)

 

That the application be refused for the following reasons:

 

1.    The application site is allocated as Safeguarded Land through Policy G3 of the South Ribble Local Plan. The proposal by virtue of its nature, scale and degree of permanence would be contrary to Policy G3 of the South Ribble Local Plan as the Council can demonstrate a 5 Year Housing Supply.

 

2.    The proposal by virtue of its nature, scale and degree of permanence would be contrary to Policy G3 of the South Ribble Local Plan as the development would harm the ability of the Council to manage the comprehensive development of the area. Therefore, the scheme would not amount to a sustainable form of development.

 

3.    Insufficient evidence in the form of an Air Quality Assessment has not been submitted that demonstrates that the proposed development would not cause harm due to air pollution and therefore, the proposal is contrary to Policy 30 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy.

Councillor Keith Martin left the meeting for the duration of this item.
