To consider the above application.

Minutes:

Consideration was given to the above application.  It was noted that the proposal should refer to 17 no dwellings and not 16.

 

(Parish Councillor Councillor Simon Saba, representing Ollerton with Marthall Parish Council, Brian Mellor, an objector and Simon Noblet, representing the Architect attended the meeting and spoke in respect of the application).

 

RESOLVED

 

That the application be refused for the following reason:-

 

1.         The proposal represents an inappropriate form of development within the Green Belt.  The proposed redevelopment of this previously developed site would have a greater impact on the openness of the Green Belt and would conflict with the purpose for including land within the Green Belt through encroachment.  The proposal is therefore contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2012) and policies PG3 of the Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy (2010 – 2030) and GC1 of the Macclesfield Borough Local Plan (2004).

 

In the event of any changes being needed to the wording of the Committee’s decision (such as to delete, vary or add conditions / informatives / planning obligations or reasons for approval/refusal) prior to the decision being issued, the Head of Planning (Regulation) has delegated authority to do so in consultation with the Chairman of the Northern Planning Committee, provided that the changes do not exceed the substantive nature of the Committee’s decision.
