The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s Central planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Thursday 11 April 2019.

A row of houses

Residential development north of Leigh Road, Minsterley, Shrewsbury (18/05802/OUT) Outline application (access off Leigh Road for consideration) for residential development (up to 28 dwellings) to include some demolition.

Decision

That planning permission be granted as per the officer’s recommendation subject to:

  • A Section 106 legal agreement to secure an affordable housing contribution;
  • The conditions set out in Appendix 1;
  • The amendment of Condition 2 to reduce the length of time for an application for reserved matters from three years to one year; and
  • An additional condition to ensure that SC Drainage Team be consulted in relation to the submitted drainage scheme.

Meeting room, 17 Betton Street, Shrewsbury (18/04386/FUL) Mixed residential development of seven dwellings following demolition of all buildings on site; alterations to existing vehicular access; formation of driveway and parking areas.

Decision

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

  • The proposal would constitute overdevelopment of the site which, due to its scale, layout and design, would result in a development which would neither preserve nor enhance the character or appearance of the Belle Vue Conservation Area.  The proposal would therefore be contrary to national and Development Plan policies including CS6 and CS17 of the Shropshire Core Strategy, MD2 and MD13 of the SAMDev Plan, and Section 16 of the NPPF.

41 Wood Street, Shrewsbury (18/05584/FUL) Change of use from A1 retail to A5 hot food takeaway restaurant and associated alterations to the building.

Decision

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

  • Members considered that the proposed change of use provided in-sufficient off-street parking spaces for both staff and customers.  It was acknowledged that the fall-back position was the use of the commercial premises as an A1 retail unit (including use as an off-licence) and that all customers travelling by vehicle would be required to find a space to park in the surrounding streets.  However, it was considered that the pattern of use and demand for on-street parking would be significantly different and increased for the proposed A5 use. This increased demand for parking would be generated at times when there was likely to be minimal parking available in the surrounding streets and as such would encourage inappropriate parking or waiting of vehicles and have a detrimental impact on the local highway network contrary to Shropshire Councils adopted policies CS6 and MD2.

School House Farm, Sheinton, Shrewsbury (18/04266/FUL) Change of use of farm yard and buildings to holiday complex to include: some demolition of buildings; siting of four glamping units and one log cabin; works to and change of use of two buildings to form office and store and leisure facilities, formation of parking areas; and installation of package treatment plant (Amended Description).

Decision

That consideration of the application be deferred to a future meeting of this committee to allow the opportunity for the concerns raised by Members in relation to the use of the site all year round and the lack of on-site supervision to be addressed.

Proposed development land off Mount Close, Pontesbury, Shrewsbury (18/05670/FUL) Erection of 18No. affordable dwellings and associated works.

Decision

That authority to grant planning permission be delegated to the Head of Planning Services subject to:

  • The conditions recommended in appendix 1 and any modifications to these conditions deemed necessary;
  • The signing of a Section 106 agreement to secure the affordable housing in perpetuity; and
  • An amendment to Condition 8 to require that the Construction Management Plan provides for any intention to use netting on trees and hedges to prevent birds from nesting to be agreed by the Ecology Team.

25 Abingdon Road, Shrewsbury (19/00595/FUL) Erection of 18No. affordable dwellings and associated works.

Decision

That planning permission be granted as per the officer’s recommendation subject to the conditions set out in Appendix 1.

Hillside, Rowley, Shrewsbury (19/00758/FUL) Erection of 2 storey extension to rear of building; detached 3-bay part open fronted garage block.

Decision

Withdrawn from the agenda for Central planning committee – for determination by the South planning committee.
