The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s South planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 19 May 2015.

  • Brian Mear (Bricks) Ltd, former Burway Abattoir, Bromfield Road, Ludlow, SY8 1DN (14/00563/FUL)  Demolition of existing buildings on former Burway Abattoir site and erection of proposed petrol filling station and ancillary convenience store with new vehicular access (revised scheme).  Decision: That, as per the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be granted, subject to:
    • The conditions set out in Appendix 1 of Annex 1;
    • The additional condition set out in Appendix 1; and
    • A Section 106 Legal Agreement to deliver off-site pedestrian improvement works.
  • Grindle House, Grindle, Shifnal, TF11 9JR (14/01874/FUL)  Application under Section 73a of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 for the change of use of redundant agricultural buildings to commercial (class B8) use.  Decision: That, contrary to the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be refused for the following reasons:The application site is not an acceptable location for a Class B8 Storage or Distribution use of the scale in operation, by reason of the long, narrow, single track routes, with tight bends and junctions, to/from the Class A and Class B road network which are unsuitable for use by large articulated heavy goods vehicle movements generated by the use. It is considered that the resulting conflict between heavy goods vehicle movements and other road users would not be overcome by the proposed provision of passing places and a traffic routing agreement. The local road network and access to the site is not capable of safely accommodating the type and scale of traffic generated and the resulting adverse impacts upon highway safety are considered to be severe, contrary to Shropshire Core Strategy policy CS6 which seeks to secure safe developments, to saved Bridgnorth District Local Plan policy D6 and paragraph 32 of the National Planning Policy Framework. There are no other material considerations of sufficient weight to outweigh this harm.
  • Hazeck, The Mines, Benthall, Broseley, TF12 5QY (14/05212/FUL)  Revisions to existing planning approval for side extension.  Decision:  That, as per the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be granted, subject to the conditions as set out in Appendix 1 to the report.
