12/11/2020 - 07/2020/00549 - Land adjacent to The Oaks, Potter Lane, Salmesbury ref: 737    For Determination

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Made at meeting: 12/11/2020 - Planning Committee

Decision published: 13/11/2020

Effective from: 12/11/2020

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 would be contrary to the Green Belt designation and is not classed as limited infilling in villages. Therefore, the proposal would not meet 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.

12/11/2020 - 07/2020/00682/VAR - Land at Oldfield and Long Meadow, Much Hoole ref: 739    For Determination

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Made at meeting: 12/11/2020 - Planning Committee

12/11/2020 - 07/2020/00705/FUL - Oakland Farm, Hollins Lane, Leyland ref: 738    For Determination

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Made at meeting: 12/11/2020 - Planning Committee

Decision published: 13/11/2020

Effective from: 12/11/2020

Decision:

RESOLVED: (Unanimously)

 

That the application be refused for the following reasons:

 

1.    It has not been demonstrated that a development of 4 dwellings would not be an incongruous addition to the rural location which fails to make a positive contribution to the quality of the environment. In relation to this the proposal has the potential to conflict with and not respect or enhance the established character and appearance of the area. It would therefore be contrary to Policy G17(a) of the South Ribble Local Plan

 

2.    The application site is considered to be in an unsustainable location due to the distance from the nearest shops and services, the absence of nearby public transport and the lack of connection to nearby settlements. Proposed development therefore does not represent sustainable development and does not comply with Chapter 9(Promoting sustainable transport)- particularly paragraphs 102c, 103, 105 and 108 of the National Planning Policy Framework, Central Lancashire Core Strategy Policy 3 (Travel) and Local Plan Chapter F (Catering for sustainable travel)

 

3.    The proposal would have a greater impact upon the openness of the Green Belt than the current use and is contrary to Policy G1 of the South Ribble Local Plan and Paragraph 145 of the NPPF.
