Related topics: Community / Democracy

The following decision was made by Shropshire Council’s North planning committee at its special meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Friday 24 October 2014.

Land North West Brooklands Farm, Dudleston, Ellesmere, Shropshire – 14/02730/MAW   Temporary operation for exploratory borehole and associated infrastructure. 


Deferred to a future meeting, with members minded to refuse the application for the following reasons:

The proposal would be contrary to Core Strategy policies CS6, CS8, CS17, CS20 in that the significant harm caused by the development would have a detrimental environmental impact, including disturbance by noise, light, low-frequency noise and vibration, loss of public amenity in terms of landscape, potential for pollution by virtue of the close proximity of the access to the lagoon, ecological issues, poor economic return and risk of groundwater pollution.
