Minutes:

 

(Councillor Thorley joined the meeting during consideration of this item).

 

On 13th October 2011 Full Council considered two Notices of Motion.  The first motion proposed a reduction in the Council’s annual housing requirement of 1150 dwellings: the second motion proposed rescission of the Council’s Interim Planning Policy on the Release of Housing Land (“IPPRHL”) which had been approved on 24th February 2011.  Full Council referred both proposals to Strategic Planning Board for consideration and comment.  Having considered a report regarding the Council’s approach to housing land supply and regarding the two proposals, the Board RECOMMENDED

 

a)     that the Council maintains an annual housing requirement of 1150 dwellings until a figure is set within the new Cheshire East Local Plan

 

b)     that the decision of Council on 24th February 2011 to approve the Interim Planning Policy on the Release of Housing Land should not be rescinded and that the IPPRHL should remain, but subject to the review set out in (c) below:

 

c)      that the IPPRHL be reviewed in accordance with the approach set out in Appendix 2 of the Report.

To consider the above planning application.

Minutes:

Consideration was given to the above application.

 

(Councillor Rhoda Bailey, the Ward Councillor declared a personal interest as a member of CPRE.  She and Mr John Ward, the applicant attended the meeting and spoke in respect of the application).

 

That the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

The Local Planning Authority considers that the applicant has failed to demonstrate that there is a clearly established existing functional need, and that the functional need could not be fulfilled by another existing dwelling in the area as specified within Annex A of PPS7. As a result, the special justification for allowing a new dwelling in the open countryside has not been met and the proposed development is contrary to the provisions of PPS 7 (Sustainable

Development in Rural Areas) and Policies H18 (Dwellings Associated with Rural

Enterprises), H6 (Residential Development in the Open Countryside and the Green Belt) and PS8 (Open Countryside) of the Congleton Borough Local Plan First Review (01/05).
