The Senior Planning Officer outlined the application and detailed the main issues within the report as follows:

·  Principle of Development (Retail)

 

The sequential assessment shows that there are no sequentially preferable sites that are available, suitable and viable. The proposal therefore accords with Policies S16 and DM8 and the retail development is acceptable in principle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

·  Layout of Development

 

The layout of the development is in keeping with the character of the area and accords with Policy S4. The scheme has been revised so there is now only 1 access off Frazer Street and 3 town houses are proposed to provide a compliant level of residential car parking.

·  Highway Safety

 

The proposal will not be harmful to highway safety.

 

Following member discussions, Councillor A McGuckin proposed to refuse the application.

The local planning authority consider insufficient evidence has been submitted to demonstrate the proposed development, by virtue of its traffic generation and vehicular acesses onto Frazer and Princess Street would not result in harm to local highway safety contrary to policies S2 and S22 of the Allerdale local plan (Part 1) and para 111 of the National Planning policy framework.

Councillor C Armstrong seconded the motion.

The Senior Planning Officer, Steve Long addressed members and advised that due to concerns regarding traffic it would be beneficial to ask Highways to attend the meeting and do an out of hours site visit.

Councillor A McGuckin retracted his original motion and proposed to defer the application to seek further advice from county highways and do an out of hours site visit.

Councillor C Armstrong agreed to the withdrawal of the original motion and seconded the motion to defer the application.
