Decision:

RESOLVED (11 Yes, 1 Abstention, 2 No):

 

That planning permission be refused for the reasons as set out below:

 

1.    The proposal will adversely impact on the character and visual amenities of the area, through a built form which detracts from the locality and results in a poorly designed scheme. The proposal will lead to increased disturbance and have a detrimental impact on highway amenities in the locality as a result of increased activity in and around the site. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policy 17 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy and Policies B1 and G17 of the South Ribble Local Plan 2012 – 2026.

 

2.    The utilitarian nature of the design when considered cumulatively with other commercial uses in the locality, will have a detrimental impact on the character, fabric and grain of this established settlement. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policy 17 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy and Policies B1 and G17 of the South Ribble Local Plan 2012 – 2026.
