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 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.

Report of the Director of Planning and Property attached.

Decision:

RESOLVED: (Unanimously)

 

That planning permission be refused for the following reasons:

1.    The proposal, by virtue of the introduction of metal shipping containers for use as a storage facility, would not be conducive to the residential area in which the application site is located. A view of the application proposal would be afforded in the wider street scene of Liverpool Road which would result in an inacceptable level of harm to the character of the area, contrary to Policy G17 in the South Ribble Local Plan.

2.    It is considered that the proposal would result in an increased level of activity to the parking and unloading area adjacent and in close proximity to the residential boundary of 250 Liverpool Road, contrary to Policy G17 in the South Ribble Local Plan.

3.    The proposal would have a detrimental impact on the residential amenity of neighbouring properties by virtue of the proposed use adjacent to residential boundaries and resulting in noise and disturbance, contrary to Policy 17 in the Central Lancashire Core Strategy and Policy G17 in the South Ribble Local Plan.

Minutes:

Speakers: 3 objectors, Parish Councillor for Penwortham Town Council, Ward Councillor David Howarth and the applicant’s agent.
