The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s South planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 26 April 2016.

  • The Lodge, Camp Lane, Ludlow, SY8 1EQ (15/01819/FUL)  Erection of replacement dwelling following demolition of existing. Decision:That, subject to the conditions as set out in Appendix 1 of the report, planning permission be granted as per the officer’s recommendation.
  • Proposed dwelling to the east of Ludlow Heights, Bridgnorth (15/04296/FUL)  Erection of two storey dwelling with parking. Decision: That, as per the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be refused for the following reason:By reason of its location and siting the proposed development would prejudice the retention of the prominent oak tree at the site which is protected by The Salop County Council (Ludlow Road Bridgnorth) TPO 1974 due to the likely pressure from the occupants of the proposed dwelling for work to be carried out to safeguard their amenity and safety. The amenity and safety of the proposed dwelling to this oak tree would be impacted upon by the overbearing presence of the tree within their garden area along with a substantial degree of overhanging branches and the amount of detritus discarded by a tree of this size and maturity.  The high probability of loss or erosion by way of lopping/pruning/felling of this high value amenity and natural asset provided by this tree would not protect or enhance local distinctiveness.  In addition the siting of the proposed dwelling so close to the proposed southern boundary of the site on a raised platform would result in likely pressure to have the existing third party owned Leylandii hedge lopped or removed to provide solar gain to the proposal which in turn would result in a material loss of amenity to the occupiers of both 17 Stretton Close and 44 Conduit Lane.  The proposal would therefore be contrary to the NPPF, CS6 and CS17 of the Core Strategy and MD2, MD3 and MD12 of the Shropshire Sites Allocations and Management of Development (SAMDev) Plan.
  • Simpro Ltd, Recycling Centre, Woodhouse Lane, Redhill, Shifnal (15/05598/VAR)  Variation of Condition 7 attached to Planning Permission 10/00783/MAW, which replaced MB2001/0749/BR and SC/MB2006/1014/BR dated 29 April 2010 to increase the maximum permitted input over any 12 month consecutive period from 20,000 to 25,000 tonnes. Decision:That, subject to the conditions as set out in Appendix 1 of the report, planning permission be granted as per the officer’s recommendation.
