The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s North planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 21 October 2014.

 

Land off Bearstone Road, Norton In Hales, Market Drayton (14/00790/OUT)  Outline application for the erection of fourteen dwellings incorporating two affordable units (to include formation of vehicular and pedestrian access).

Decision:

That Planning Permission be refused, contrary to the officer’s recommendation for the following reason:

Members acknowledged that the housing proposed by the development would contribute economically and socially by boosting the housing supply including open market and affordable housing to which weight was given.  However, it was considered that this was outweighed by the harm identified.  The committee were concerned that the development, cumulatively with the approved site adjacent to Norton Farm, would result in an adverse impact on the size of the village, to the detriment of community cohesion, and that the development of the site would impact on the adjacent conservation area.  Weight was given to the location of the site being outside the development boundary in both the saved North Shropshire Local Plan and the emerging policies in the Site Allocations and Management of Development DPD as well as the policies in the NPPF.

 

 

Land north of the River Tanat, Llanyblodwel (13/05008/OUT)  Outline application (all matters reserved) for the erection of four dwellings to include one affordable dwelling.

Decision:

That Planning Permission be refused, contrary to the officer’s recommendation for the following reason:

Members had carefully considered and weighed up the proposal and acknowledged the economic benefits that would flow from the construction works, the support the development would potentially afford to the Public House, the modest boost in housing supply and the social benefits that would arise from the provision of an affordable dwelling.  However, they consider that the harm that would be caused, albeit less than substantial harm, to the significance of the four heritage assets would significantly outweigh the benefits of the proposal.  In coming to this view, members have had regard to the NPPF and the statutory duty in respect of listed buildings, and have afforded considerable importance and weight to that harm.

 

 

Hadley Farm, Wrexham Road, Whitchurch (14/02914/FUL)  Installation and operation of a solar farm and associated infrastructure, including photovoltaic panels, mounting frames, inverters, transformers, substations, communications building, fence and pole mounted security cameras.

Decision:

That Planning Permission be granted in accordance with the officer’s recommendation, subject to the conditions set out in Appendix 1 and an additional condition to ensure the timber posts for the fence and pole mounted security cameras were maintained and if required replacement were replaced by timber posts.

 

 

 

23-25 Cheshire Street, Market Drayton, TF9 1PH (14/03427/FUL)  Change of use from A1 retail to mixed A1/A3 coffee shop with an area of outdoor seating and installation of associated air conditioning equipment.
