Declarations 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 judgment 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.

07/2020/00220/OUT - Tusons Farm, Gill Lane, Longton pdf icon PDF 650 KB

Report of the Director of Planning and Property attached.

Decision:

RESOLVED: (Unanimously)

 

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 of nine dwellings on a parcel of land approximately 0.98 hectare, outside the settlement boundary of Walmer Bridge would be contrary to the Green Belt designation and is not classed as limited infilling in villages. Therefore, the proposal would not meet the 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.

3.    The proposed changes to the access lane and increase in the number of vehicle movements would create an unacceptable impact upon the residential amenity of the residents of even no’s 20 to 40 Rockburgh Crescent and would require the removal of trees and two areas of hedgerows. These aspects of the proposal would not respect the character of the area and proposed changes would not be of an adoptable standard. Therefore, the proposed development would be contrary to Policy G17 (b) (c) and (e) of the South Ribble Local Plan.
