The agent, Rachel Lightfoot spoke in support of the application
The report recommended granting permission
The report outlined the application and detailed the main issues within the report as follows:
· Design, scale and siting
The building is to be sited on the footprint of a previous building achieving a good relationship with the working farmstead, with the material to match those on the farm. The applicant has provided sufficient justification for the height of the building.
· Heritage Impact
Although the height of the building will have some impact on the Listed Building, this is less than substantial and is outweighed by the benefits of the proposal.
In the ensuing debate, questions were asked of the officers and the speaker in relation to fire safety.
Councillor Bill Pegram moved to approve the application as per officer’s recommendation; this was seconded by Councillor Billy Miskelly.
A vote was taken on the motion for refusal, 8 voted in favour, 0 against and 8 abstentions,
The motion was carried.
