The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s North planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 18 November 2014.

 

Proposed residential development land on both sides of Rush Lane, Market Drayton (14/04701/OUT)  Outline application (access for approval) for mixed residential development (up to 162 dwellings), associated open space and landscaping (resubmission).

Decision:

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

  • The application for Reserved Matters being considered by the North Planning Committee;
  • The applicants entering into a S106 agreement to secure affordable housing and a contribution towards public transport; and
  • The conditions set out in Appendix 1.

 

 

Land off Greenfields Lane, Market Drayton (14/03782/OUT)  Outline application (access for approval) for the residential development of up to 250 dwellings; to include demolition of existing structures on site; formation of vehicular accesses from the A53 and Hampton Drive.

Decision:

That the Area Planning Manager/Principal Planning Officer be granted delegated powers to issue outline planning permission, subject to:

  • The satisfactory resolution of the outstanding ecology matters;
  • The removal of the objection from the Environment Agency;
  • The deletion of the junction from the A53;
  • The applicants entering into a S106 agreement to secure affordable housing and a contribution towards public transport;
  • The conditions set out in Appendix 1 and an additional condition to limit the number of dwellings that could be accessed off Hampton Drive (in consultation with Highways DC); and
  • Submission of Reserved Matters Application to be considered by the North Planning Committee.

 

 

Land north Of Whitridge Way, Trefonen (14/00536/OUT)  Outline application for the erection of twelve dwellings (to include access).

Decision:

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

It is acknowledged that the housing proposed by the development would contribute economically and socially by boosting the housing supply and would also provide limited support for the existing services in the village.  Notwithstanding this however it is considered that this is outweighed by the potential harms identified below.  Furthermore weight, albeit limited weight, was given to the fact that the proposed development was not plan led being contrary to both current saved policies of the Oswestry Local Plan and emerging policies in the Site Allocations and Management of Development DPD.  Limited weight was given to those policies in view of the age of the saved policies and the fact that the emerging policies are subject to unresolved objections and have not yet been subject to examination in public. It is considered that the development of this site would have an adverse impact on the intrinsic rural character and beauty of the village, take up a visually valuable green space, be development on valuable agricultural land and would not contribute towards conserving and enhancing the natural environment contrary to policies CS5 and CS6 of the Shropshire Core Strategy and the NPPF.  Furthermore it is not considered that this development in the settlement is sustainable due to the limited number of services available to future residents in Trefonen and the consequent need to travel to access services but with limited public transport, and opportunities for non-car based travel to do so.  The Council considers that the impact the proposed development would have on the internationally recognised designated heritage asset (Offa’s Dyke), having regard to the advice of English Heritage and the Council’s Conservation Officer also adds weight to the conclusion that the adverse impacts of the development would cumulatively, significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits and would fail to satisfy roles of sustainable development as set out in the National Planning Policy Framework.

Decision:
