The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s North planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 17 February 2015.

Land north west of Brooklands Farm, Dudleston, Ellesmere (14/02730/MAW)

Temporary operation for exploratory borehole and associated infrastructure.   Decision:  

  • The Committee confirmed that, had the decision still been before the council, that planning permission be refused for the following reasons:

The application would be contrary to Core Strategy Policies CS6 and CS18 as it:-

  • Had not been adequately demonstrated that the proposed development can be undertaken without adverse impact upon residential and local amenity due to the disturbance from noise emissions.
  • Had not been adequately demonstrated that the proposed development would not have an unacceptable impact upon private water supplies in the area through contamination or damage resulting from site preparation, drilling and restoration operations, and the passing of vehicles across the site and access track
  • Had not been adequately demonstrated that the proposed development, including the preparation of the site and subsequent reinstatement, can be undertaken without causing pollution of groundwater and surface water from the failure of the slurry lagoon caused by damage resulting from the number, frequency and type of vehicles travelling past it
  • Is considered that the benefits of the proposed scheme, in establishing the characteristics of the underlying coal measures, would not outweigh the potential harm to the area as set out above.
  • That the Council’s statement of case for the appeal against non-determination is predicated on the issues as set out in section 2.4 of the planning officer’s report.
