Plas Ffynnon, 12 – 14 Middleton Road,Oswestry – 12/04815/FUL  

Decision: That, subject to an additional condition to require the protection of trees on the site throughout the construction period, planning permission be granted in accordance with the officer’s recommendation. 

Brownlow Road, Ellesmere – 13/01416/FUL 

Decision: That this item be deferred until a future meeting of this committee, to enable the applicant to present a full assessment of the current usage of the application site, as the information available failed to demonstrate capacity was available in the surrounding area for displaced vehicles.  Without this information the council are unable to determine whether the development would result in a loss of existing facilities and would be contrary to Policies CS6 and CS8 of Shropshire Council’s Core Strategy and Policy D7- Parking Standards of the Saved North Shropshire Local Plan Policies.

Birch Close, Ruyton XI Towns – 13/01418/FUL 

Decision: That this item be deferred until a future meeting of this committee, to enable the applicant to present a full assessment of the current usage of the application site, as the information available failed to demonstrate capacity was available in the surrounding area for displaced vehicles.  Without this information the council are unable to determine whether the development would result in a loss of existing facilities and would be contrary to Policies CS6 and CS8 of Shropshire Council’s Core Strategy.

Birch Grove, Ruyton XI Towns – 13/01580/FUL 

Decision: That planning permission be refused, contrary to the officer’s recommendation, for the following reason:

Taking into account the local parking provision and highway network, the proposal to further reduce the amount of car parking available to local residents was considered to have a detrimental impact to the health and well-being of the community, did not safeguard residential and local amenity, and results in the loss of an existing facility available to the immediate community.  As such the proposal is contrary to Policies CS6 and CS8 of Shropshire Council’s Core Strategy.

Smithy Cottage, Sandford, Whitchurch – 13/0822/FUL 

Decision: That, subject to the proposal being issued for a temporary period of 3 years to allow monitoring of vehicle movements at the site, planning permission be granted in accordance with the officer’s recommendation. 

Hillbrook Drive, Grindley Brook, Whitchurch – 13/01182/FUL 

Decision: That this item be deferred until a future meeting of this committee, to allow the committee to undertake a site visit to assess the impact of the proposal on the surrounding area and existing property.
