Central planning committee decisions
The following planning applications were considered and decided by Shropshire Council’s central planning committee at its meeting on Thursday 23 August 2012.
Foxholes Buildings, Little Ness – 12/01419/EIA
Erection of 3 poultry rearing sheds; 2 control rooms, 7 feed bins, office/store building, water tower, vehicular access, road improvement works (in Great Ness & Little Ness) earth bund and landscaping scheme.
Decision: APPROVED – in accordance with the Officer’s recommendations, subject to a Section 106 Agreement on the routing of the traffic arising from the development and the following changes to conditions:
(a) The deletion of Conditions 13, 14, 17, 24 and 25.
(b) The amendment of Condition 7 to read:
“No development shall commence on site in connection with this approval until a landscape management and protection strategy and implementation time table in relation to that strategy for the approved landscaping schemes has been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority and the approved strategy shall be carried out in accordance with the approved timetable following the implementation of the landscaping schemes.
Reason: To ensure the landscaping is managed in a way that will provide the best conditions for it to reach maturity and thereby provide the intended mitigation and amenity benefits in the long term.”
(c) The amendment of Condition 29 to read:
“Bird depopulation shall take place on no more than 30 days in a year and associated HGV movements shall be restricted to a maximum of 11 individual i.e. one-way movements during any single period from 02.00 to 07.00 hours.
Reason: In the interests of residential amenity of residents along the access route.”
Retail Unit adjacent to Minsterley Garage, Station Road, Minsterley – 12/02351/COU
Change of use from A1 to A5 Hot food takeaway
Decision: REFUSED – contrary to the officer’s recommendations for the following reasons:
It is considered that the proposed change of use is likely to generate significant business and vehicle movements at sensitive times of the day, as an A5 use was over and above the currently permitted A1 use of the premises tied to the existing convenience store at the site As a result, given that there is no clear evidence that the limited parking on site will be available to customers of the proposed takeaway, it is considered that the proposal would be highly likely to have an adverse impact on the amenity of neighbouring residential properties and on highway safety, as the lack of parking provision on the site to meet the demand could potentially lead to inappropriate parking on residential streets, on the A488 and in the bus stop lay-by adjacent to the premises. Consequently it is considered that the proposal fails to accord with the requirements of adopted and saved Policy CS6 of the Shropshire Core Strategy.
59 Mount Pleasant Road, Shrewsbury – 12/02609/FUL
Erection of a two-storey side extension, single-storey rear extension including insertion of rooflight, conversion of roof space including insertion of rear dormer window and rooflights to front elevation.
Decision: APPROVED – in accordance with the Officer’s recommendations
