Minutes:

(Merley and Bearwood Ward - pre-May 2019)

 

Application no. APP/18/00520/F

 

Development considered: Temporary car washing & drying facility (for 3 years)

 

Representations at Meeting:

Objectors: Sharen Green              

 

Applicant: Not registered

 

Ward Councillors: Cllr D Brown and Cllr R Burton

 

RESOLVED that Application no. APP/18/00520/F be REFUSED contrary to the Officer Recommendation for the following reasons:

 

1.    The proposals would result in the partial development of previously developed land in a manner which would have a greater impact on the openness of the Green Belt than the existing development. As such, the proposal would be inappropriate development in the Green Belt, contrary to the provisions of Paragraph 145 (Proposals affecting the Green Belt) of the National Planning Policy Framework (February 2019).

 

2.    The application has failed to demonstrate that the proposals would not harm adjacent protected trees, both during their construction (including the excavation and construction of the proposed concrete slab; silt trap; and associated drains) and during their operation (including from the possibility of overspray and spillage of cleaning agents and solvents). As such, the proposal would be contrary to the provisions of Policy PP27 of the Poole Local Plan (November 2019).

 

Informatives:

1.      In accordance with the provisions of paragraphs 38 of the NPPF the Local Planning Authority (LPA) takes a positive and creative approach to development proposals focused on solutions.  The LPA work with applicants in a positive and proactive manner by;

-       offering a pre-application advice service, and

-       advising applicants of any issues that may arise during the consideration of their application and, where possible, suggesting solutions.

-       In this case the applicant did not take the opportunity to enter into pre-application discussions.

 

2.    The development is hereby refused in accordance with the following plans:

18/0315 A South and East Elevations received 13 April 2018

18/0315 B North and West Elevations received 13 April 2018

18/0315 C Site Plan and Block Plan received 13 April 2018

Site of car wash facility received 8 June 2018

Voting: For – Unanimous
