Related topics: Community / Democracy / My area

The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s Central planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Thursday 13 November 2014.

 

Proposed development land east of Station Road, Condover, Shrewsbury (14/00335/OUT)  Outline application (access, layout and scale) for the erection of 47 dwellings (7 affordable), school hall, car parking area and enlarged school playing field for existing school, allotments, village green and informal open space (amended description).

Decision:

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

Notwithstanding the community benefits included within the application, the proposal would fail to satisfy the three dimensions to sustainable development defined within the National Planning Policy Framework: the economic, social and environmental roles.  Given the council’s current five year housing land supply position, the proposed scheme is not considered necessary to meet Shropshire Council’s housing development requirements of the community and would therefore undermine the strategy for the location of housing.  Furthermore, the development would extend into the countryside, utilising high quality agricultural land and would fail to protect or enhance the natural environment.  Accordingly, the proposal would fail to accord with the aims and requirements of saved policy HS3 of the Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Plan, adopted Core Strategy policies CS4, CS5, CS6 and CS17, and emerging site allocation and management of development policies MD1 and MD3.

 

Proposed development land south of Plealey Lane, Longden (14/01704/OUT)  Outline application for the erection of 35 dwellings to include means of access,together with resiting of school football pitch, provision of extended school car park and new school access (amended description).

Decision:

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

  • The proposal would fail to satisfy the three dimensions to sustainable development defined within the National Planning Policy Framework: the economic, social and environmental roles.  Given the council’s current five year housing land supply position, the proposed scheme is not considered necessary to meet Shropshire Council’s housing development requirements of the community and would therefore undermine the strategy for the location of housing.  Furthermore, the development would extend into the countryside, and would fail to protect or enhance the natural environment. Accordingly the proposal would fail to accord with the aims and requirements of saved policy H3 of the Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Plan, adopted Core Strategy policies CS4, CS5, CS6 and CS17, and emerging site allocation and management of development policies MD1 and MD3.
  • The proposed development would result in the loss of a significant number of mature trees with high amenity values.  It is not accepted that the replanting scheme proposed would adequately compensate or mitigate for the loss of the mature trees.  Accordingly, the proposal would fail to comply with the aims and requirements of adopted Core Strategy policies CS6 and CS17 or the guidance within the NPPF.

 

 

Development land north of A458, Ford, Shrewsbury (14/01819/OUT)  Outline application (access for approval) for mixed residential development.

Decision:

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

  • A S106 Legal Agreement to secure affordable housing in accordance with the prevailing rate at the time of submission of reserved matters; and

The conditions set out in Appendix 1 to the report.

 

 

Shropshire Ambulance Service Ambulance Station, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, SY2 6LX (14/03303/FUL)  Change of use of former ambulance station to A1 retail including the provision of two C3 residential units and the erection of thirteen dwellings.

Decision:

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

  • A Section 106 Legal Agreement to secure the affordable housing on site; and
  • The conditions set out in Appendix 1 to the report.
 

Land west of Mulberry House, Great Ryton, Shrewsbury, SY5 7LW (14/03338/OUT)   Outline application for the erection of 2No dwellings (to include access).

Decision:

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

  • A Section 106 Legal Agreement to secure the provision of off-site affordable dwellings; and
  • The conditions set out in Appendix 1 to the report.

 

 

Proposed residential development to the north-west of Ford, Shrewsbury (14/03451/FUL)  Erection of 2 no. dwellings with associated garages; formation of vehicular access.

Decision:

Consideration deferred to the next meeting, with members minded to refuse the application on the basis that the proposal would be detrimental to the residential amenities of neighbouring residents.  In addition, the proposal would fail to satisfy the three dimensions to sustainable development defined within the National Planning Policy Framework: the economic, social and environmental roles.  Given the council’s current five year housing land supply position, the proposed scheme is not considered necessary to meet Shropshire Council’s housing development requirements or the community’s needs in terms of health, social and cultural well-being and would therefore undermine the strategy for the location of housing.  Accordingly, the proposal would fail to accord with the aims and  requirements of saved policy H3 of the Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Plan, adopted Core Strategy policies CS4, CS5, CS6 and emerging site allocation and management of development policies MD1 and MD3.
