The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s South planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 24 June 2014.

Application to register land known as Patshull Green, Albrighton as a village green. 

Decision: That the application to register the land known as Patshull Green, Albrighton, as shown edged red on the plan (Appendix 1 to the report), be rejected as per the officer’s recommendation and for the reasons set out in the report.

McKeand Smith & Co Ltd, Station Road, Albrighton, Wolverhampton, WV7 3EA (13/00097/FUL)  Change of use from B1 to C3 (dwelling houses); Demolition of outbuildings and office block; Conversion of existing workshop buildings to form 2 no. two-bed dwellings; Erection of 4 no. three-bed dwellings, 1 no. two-bed dwelling and 1 no. two-bed flat above garaging; Access improvements; Parking provision; Outside waste storage. (Amended description). 

Decision:  That, subject to a Section 106 Agreement relating to the affordable housing element and the conditions as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, planning permission be granted as per the officer’s recommendation.

Land At Mardol House, King Street, Much Wenlock, TF13 6BL (13/00143/FUL)  Erection of one detached dwelling and erection of two bay detached garage.  Creation of new vehicular access. 

Decision:  That planning permission be granted as per the officer’s recommendation, subject to:

  • A Section 106 Agreement relating to affordable housing;
  • The conditions as set out in Appendix 1 to the report; and

That officers be granted delegated authority to undertake a review of the access arrangements and for improvements to be made as appropriate.

 

Criddon Hall Farm, Criddon, Upton Cressett, Bridgnorth, WV16 6UJ (13/01983/FUL)  Erection of 2 no. wind turbines up to a height of 80.0m to tip and associated infrastructure including new access tracks, one control building, (amended to 77m tip height) 

Application withdrawn by the applicant.

Proposed residential development south Of A49, Ludlow (13/03862/OUT)  Outline application for residential development (up to 215 dwellings); public open space; highways works; access roads and pedestrian footbridges; and a Neighbourhood Store (Class A1 Retail) not exceeding 300 sq.m internal floorspace, associated engineering and accommodation works. 

Decision: That this application be deferred in order that a more informed site visit could be undertaken and for the applicant to provide further information on surface water drainage and the implications for flooding, the proposed new roundabout on the A49, and the vehicular access to the neighbourhood shop off Bromfield Road.

Land South Of A464, Shifnal (13/04840/FUL)  Mixed residential development of 66 dwellings and garages. 

Consideration deferred to the next meeting, with members minded to refuse the application for the following reasons:

The proposed development of 66 dwellings, in combination with the current valid planning permissions and resolutions in Shifnal Town, would cumulatively result in development harmful to the character of Shifnal and would have an unsustainable impact upon the Town’s infrastructure in respect of highway network capacity, medical facilities and school capacity.  The proposed development would therefore be contrary to Shropshire Core Strategy policies CS6 and CS8 and these adverse impacts would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits in terms of the site contributing to the supply of housing land in Shropshire.

 

The Habit, 30 East Castle Street, Bridgnorth, WV16 4AN (13/04956/FUL)  Erection of one dwelling and formation of access. 

Decision: That this application be deferred to a future meeting in order for the applicant to provide a specialist light impact assessment report.

Corfton Farm, Corfton, Craven Arms, Shropshire, SY7 9DD (14/00784/EIA)  Construction of four poultry sheds and feed bins, ancillary works, amendments to existing vehicular access, erection of biomass building and associated landscaping. 

Decision: That permission be granted in accordance with the officer’s recommendation, subject to:

  • Condition No. 5 being amended to ensure that the colour finish be BS18B29;
  • Condition No. 17 being amended to ensure that no lorries shall leave the development site between 11.00 pm and 2.00 am hours.
The Leasowes, Sandford Avenue, Church Stretton, SY6 7AE (14/01173/OUT)  Outline planning consent for residential development (up to 52 dwellings) to include access. 

Decision: That, subject to a Section 106 Agreement relating to the affordable housing element and the conditions as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, planning permission be granted as per the officer’s recommendation.

Land off Oldbury Road, Bridgnorth (14/01016/OUT) Outline application (access for approval) for mixed residential development. 

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

  • The proposed development would have a detrimental impact upon the character and appearance of the Oldbury Conservation Area and its setting through the erosion of the rural character of the north eastern approach to the village by built development on this site, and the loss of a visually prominent section of roadside hedgerow and trees.  The proposed development would therefore be contrary to Shropshire Core Strategy policies CS6 and CS17 and paragraphs 131, 135 and 138 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and these adverse impacts would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits in terms of the site contributing to the supply of housing land in Shropshire.
