The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s North planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 23 February 2016.

    • Castleton, Cemetery Road, Market Drayton, TF9 3BG (15/05463/VAR) Removal of Condition No. 3 attached to Planning Permission NS/03/00825/FUL dated 9 October 2003 to allow the annex to be occupied by a third party as an independent dwelling.  Decision: 

      That planning permission be granted contrary to the Officer’s recommendation subject to:

      • The applicant entering into a S106 agreement to secure an affordable housing contribution; and
      • The remaining conditions attached to Planning Permission NS/03/00825/FUL dated 9 October 2003 being re-imposed.

      For the following reason:

      Members were satisfied that the development provided sufficient amenity space for both properties, contributed to a varied local housing stock and considered that any adverse impact in relation to overlooking was outweighed by the benefits identified.

    • The Hollies, Dovaston, Kinnerley, Oswestry (12/03866/FUL) Reposition previously approved replacement dwelling (previous ref 06/14437/FUL).  Decision: 

      That planning permission be refused contrary to the Officer’s recommendation for the following reason:

      Members were not satisfied that sufficient reasons had been provided to justify siting the replacement dwelling on a different footprint to the dwelling which it replaces contrary to the policies MD7a of SAMDev and the Councils Type and Affordability of Housing Supplementary Planning Document and to do so would be out of character with the local area taking into account the local vernacular and built form and would therefore be contrary to Guideline G3 of the Kinnerley Parish Design Statement.

    • Gobowen Methodist Chapel, Chirk Road, Gobowen (15/05302/FUL) Conversion of school room adjoining former chapel to one dwelling.  Decision: 

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

       

      • The Conditions set out in Appendix 1; and

      • The applicant entering into a S106 agreement to secure an affordable housing contribution.
