The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s Central planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Thursday 12 March 2015.  

Land at Longden, Shrewsbury (14/00467/OUT)

Outline application (access for approval) for mixed residential development.  Decision

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

  • The proposed development would fall in open countryside, would be visually intrusive on the approach to the village and have an adverse impact on the character and appearance of the settlement, landscape and the surrounding countryside as a whole. Accordingly the proposal is considered contrary to Shropshire Core Strategy Development Plan Policies CS4 and CS5 and Longden Village Design Statement. As such the adverse impacts of granting permission are considered to significantly and demonstrably outweigh any benefits when assessed against the policies in the National Planning Policy Framework taken as a whole.
Proposed development land north west of Montford Bridge, Montford, Shrewsbury (14/02964/OUT)

Erection of 8 no. dwellings and formation of new vehicular access off Montford Bridge Road; provision of car parking to serve the existing fishing rights of the site.  Decision

  • A Section 106 Legal Agreement to secure the requisite affordable housing;
  • An additional condition to ensure the provision of access and car parking to serve the existing fishing rights of the site in perpetuity;
  • An additional condition limiting the maximum number of dwellings to eight; and

  • Delegated authority be granted to Planning Officers to issue the planning permission subject to the following:
    • Receipt of a satisfactory Flood Risk Assessment;
