RESOLVED

 

That the application be refused for the following reason:-

 

The proposed development is unsustainable because it is located within the Open Countryside and would result in an adverse impact on appearance and character of the area and the loss of Grade 2 and 3a agricultural land contrary to Policies PG2 (Settlement Hierarchy), PG6 (Open Countryside), SD1 (Sustainable Development in Cheshire East) and SD2 (Sustainable Development Principles), SE2 (Efficient Use of Land) of the Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy, saved PS8 (Open Countryside) of the Congleton Borough Local Plan, Policies TC6: Locations Outside the Town Centre & H1: Housing Strategy & of the Middlewich Neighbourhood Plan and the principles of the National Planning Policy Framework, which seek to ensure development is directed to the right location and open countryside is protected from inappropriate development and maintained for future generations enjoyment and use. As such it creates harm to interests of acknowledged importance.

 

In order to give proper effect to the Board`s intent and without changing the substance of its decision, authority is delegated to the Head of Planning (Regulation) in consultation with the Chairman (or in their absence the Vice Chairman) to correct any technical slip or omission in the resolution, before issue of the decision notice.
