To consider the above planning application.

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report regarding the above planning application and a written update.

 

RESOLVED

 

(a)  That, for the reasons set out in the report and the written update, the application be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

The proposed development is unsustainable because it is located within the Open Countryside, it would result in an adverse impact on appearance and character of the area and the loss of Grade 2 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, and saved Policy RES.5 (Housing in the Open Countryside) of the Crewe and Nantwich Local 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.

 

(b)  That, in order to give proper effect to the Committee’s intentions and without changing the substance of the decision, authority be delegated to the Head of Planning (Regulation), in consultation with the Chairman (or in his absence the Vice Chairman) of Southern Planning Committee, to correct any technical slip or omission in the wording of the resolution, before issue of the decision notice.
