19/3182M-Erection of a pair of 3 bedroom, semi-detached dwellings, including associated landscaping, Land located between no.18 & no.26 Shrigley Road North for Ms Lindsey Jones pdf icon PDF 541 KB

To consider the above application.

Minutes:

Consideration was given to the above application.

 

(Ward Councillor J Saunders, the Ward Councillor, Town Councillor L Clarke, representing Poynton Town Council and Hayley Whitaker, an objector attended the meeting and spoke in respect of the application).

 

RESOLVED

 

That the application be refused for the following reasons:-

 

 

1.         The proposed development does not contribute positively to the local area’s character and identity by creating or reinforcing local distinctiveness in terms of height, scale, form and external design features.  The changes from the previously refused scheme are not considered to address previous concerns in terms of the development’s impact on the character of the area.  The proposal is therefore contrary to policy SD2 of the CELPS and chapter 12 of the NPPF.

 

2.         Whilst the principle of infill development on the site is accepted, the scale of the proposed development does not amount to limited infilling in a village, and therefore the proposal is contrary to policy PG3 of the CELPS, paragraph 145 of the NPPF and draft policy HOU1 of the Poynton Neighbourhood Plan.

 

In order to give proper effect to the Committee’s intentions and without changing the substance of the decision, authority is delegated to the Head of Planning (Regulation), in consultation with the Chairman (or in his absence the Vice Chairman) of Northern Planning Committee to correct any technical slip or omission in the wording of the resolution, between approval of the minutes and issue of the decision notice.
