APP/20/00891: LAND AT CHICKEN CORNER FARM, RABY MERE ROAD, RABY, CH63 4JQ - DEMOLITION AND REMOVAL OF EXISTING COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS AND STRUCTURES (USE CLASSES B1, B2, B8, D2 AND SUI GENERIS) AND THE ERECTION OF SIX DWELLINGS (USE CLASS C3) WITH ALTERATIONS TO EXISTING VEHICULAR ACCESS AND FORMATION OF PARKING AND SITE LANDSCAPING pdf icon PDF 265 KB

Minutes:

Councillor A Gardner declared a personal interest in this matter (minute 33 refers).

 

The Director of Regeneration and Place submitted the above application for consideration.

 

The Applicant’s Agent addressed the Committee.

 

Ward Councillor Cherry Povall addressed the Committee.

 

It was moved by Councillor S Frost and seconded by Councillor M Jordan that the application be refused.

 

The motion was put and carried (10:0). 

 

Resolved (10:0) – That the application be refused for the following reason:

 

In visual terms the proposal would have a greater impact on the openness of the Green Belt than the existing development due to the height and massing of the submitted scheme. The proposal is therefore inappropriate development in the Green Belt, and as such conflicts with Policy GB2 of the Wirral UDP, and the NPPF, which seeks to safeguard the Green Belt from inappropriate development and impacts on openness.
