02/04/2019 - PIP/2019/0001 - Application for permission in principle for new residential development, Pine Trees

Representations

 

The applicants, Karen Law and Paul Boustead spoke in support of the application.

 

Application

 

The report recommended refusal.

 

The Senior Planning Officer introduced the item confirming that members attended a site visit, and that members are only required to consider the principle of the development only, which could be a minimum of 1 dwelling or a maximum of 5 dwellings.

 

The Senior Planning Officer went on to explain that the principle is unacceptable due to the juxtaposition of the site to existing farming activities and the relationship of the site and its access to existing dwellings, and that the provision of homes would not outweigh the negatives from the proposal.

 

Members noted the representations received in respect of the application, the main grounds of which were set out in the report.

 

Questions were asked of the officers and debate followed in relation to settlement limits.

 

Councillor Armstrong moved to refuse the application as per officer’s recommendation.

 

The motion was seconded by Councillor Wilson.

 

A vote was taken on the motion, 10 voted in favour, 0 against and 2 abstentions.

 

The motion carried.

 

Resolution

 

Refused as per officer’s recommendation.
