The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s South planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 18 December 2018.

Proposed affordable dwelling north of Jays Farm, Hope Bagot (18/02384/FUL) Erection of affordable dwelling and installation of septic tank (revised scheme).

Decision

That, as per the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be granted, subject to completion of a Section 106 Legal Agreement to ensure the dwelling remains affordable in perpetuity and the conditions as set out in Appendix 1 to the report.

Land to the south east of Hemford, Bromlow, Minsterley (18/03312/OUT) Outline application for the erection of a single dwelling (to include access).

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.

Royal Oak, Alveley, Bridgnorth, WV15 6LL (18/03476/FUL) Application under Section 73A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 for the erection of toilet block, shower block and change of use to glamping and touring caravan site.

Decision

That, as per the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be refused for the following reasons:

  • It is acknowledged that the proposed development would contribute to the rural economy and to the role of Shropshire as a tourist destination to stay. However these benefits are considered to be outweighed by the harm the openness of the Green Belt and be at odds with one of the five purposes of the Green Belt, namely safeguarding the countryside from encroachment. No very special circumstances have been demonstrated or exist that would be of sufficient weight to justify inappropriate development in the Green Belt. The development would therefore be contrary to the adopted Core Strategy policy CS5, SAMDev policy MD6 and the guidance set out in the National Planning Policy Framework Part 13.
  • Notwithstanding the above the benefits of proposed development are considered to be outweighed by the environmental harm. The introduction of the structures proposed would appear as incongruous additions to the area and as such would result in a detrimental impact upon the character and appearance of the area. Accordingly, the proposed development is contrary to Local Plan policies CS5, CS6, CS16 & CS17 of the adopted Core Strategy and policies MD2, MD11, MD12 of the SAMDev and national guidance contained within the NPPF, in particular paragraphs 83 and 110.
