Planning Application No: 21/0252 Erection of a Dwelling Including Associated Operations Land North of the Rectory, Greystoke, CA11 0TJ

Minutes:

The Planning Services Development Manager informed the meeting that, subsequent to the full presentation heard at the previous committee, there had been further developments. The Applicant’s agent had provided more information in relation to the arboriculturalist’s assessment. Whilst the officer recommendation remained the same, the additional information provided resulted in the recommendation only relying on the heritage implications of the application, not the arboriculture implications.

 

Proposed by Councillor Chambers

Seconded by Councillor Martin

 

That the application be approved, with delegated authority to officers to attach appropriate conditions, on the basis of Planning Policy LS1 recognising Greystoke as a key hub.

 

For: 3

Against: 4

Abstain: 1

 

The motion therefore FELL

 

Proposed by Councillor Eyles

Seconded by Councillor Simpkins

 

For: 4

Against: 3

Abstain: 1

 

And RESOLVED that the application be REFUSED, in line with the officer recommendation, for the following reason:

 

The proposed dwellinghouse, use of land as domestic curtilage and potential loss of trees would cause considerable harm to the setting of listed buildings, resulting in moderate harm to the significance of these national heritage assets. There are insufficient public benefits to the proposal to outweigh this harm, nor any clear or convincing justification for such harm, which fails to conserve the significance of these listed buildings. As such, the proposal is contrary to Policy ENV10 of the of the Eden Local Plan 2014-32 and contrary to Sections 16 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2021, in particular paragraphs 195, 197, 199, 200, 202.
