Demolition of extensions to the listed
building and its
retention as a single dwelling, demolition of existing
outbuildings and the erection of 6 detached dwellings.
The Development Management Team Leader gave a summary of the report.
As the applicant had appealed against non-determination on this application, the Council can no longer determine the application
Members expressed concern that the scale and appearance of the proposed development would result in significant harm to the setting of a listed building and would result in inappropriate development in the Countryside Protection Zone. More harm would be caused by the development than benefits.
Councillor Fairhurst proposed to refuse the application. Councillor Bagnall seconded this motion.
RESOLVED to object to the application for the following reasons:
a. The proposed development, due to the scale and appearance, would result in significant harm to the setting of the listed building, contrary to Policy ENV2 and paragraphs 193-195 of the NPPF. There are insufficient public benefits to outweigh the harm.
b. The proposed development would result in inappropriate development in the Countryside Protection Zone, promoting coalescence and adversely affecting the open characteristics of the zone. The tilted balance in paragraph 11d)ii) is disapplied and as such the benefits of the proposals do not outweigh the harm.
