Related topics: Community / Democracy / My area

The following planning decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s Central planning committee at its meeting on Thursday 25 April 2013 in Shrewsbury.

The Old Three Pigeons, Nesscliffe – 11/04158/FUL
Erection of 2 No dwellings; formation of access.

Decision: REFUSED – contrary to the Officer’s recommendations for the following reasons:
The access is inadequate in terms of its specification and the approach to the dwellings through the pub car park is inappropriate in terms of its design and the setting of the proposed dwellings. Therefore, the proposed development fails to accord with the requirements of adopted Policy CS6 of the Shropshire Core Strategy.

The reduction in the size of the car park to accommodate the access to the dwellings, and the properties themselves, would result in inadequate spaces for the business, leading to inappropriate parking on the highway and within the car park leading to a detrimental impact on highway users and the residential amenity of the occupiers of the dwellings. Therefore, the proposed development fails to accord with the requirements of adopted Policy CS6 of the Shropshire Core Strategy

Residential Development, Land off St Andrews Road, Shrewsbury – 12/04677/FUL
