APPLICATION FOR MINOR DEVELOPMENT - NEW FARM, ALSAGER ROAD, AUDLEY. MR. EMERY. 18/00122/FUL pdf icon PDF 74 KB

Minutes:

Resolved:     That the application be refused for the following reasons:     

 

(i)            The site lies within the open countryside outside the village envelope of Audley and the proposed dwellings would not serve an identified local need. As such, the development of this site is contrary to the objective of directing new houses to sustainable brownfield land within the village envelopes of the key rural service centres and as such would be contrary to Policies SP1 and ASP6 of the Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent Core Spatial Strategy 2006-2026, Policy H1 of the Newcastle-under-Lyme Local Plan 2011, and the aims and objectives of the National Planning Policy Framework (2018).

 

(ii)          In the absence of a secured planning obligation there is not an appropriate review mechanism to allow for changed financial circumstance, and, in such circumstances, the potential provision of a policy compliant financial contribution towards public open space and onsite affordable housing is not achieved. The proposal would thus be contrary to Policies CSP5, CSP6 and CSP10 of the Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent Core Spatial Strategy 2006-2026, saved Policies C4 & IM1 of the Newcastle-under-Lyme Local Plan 2011, and the aims and objectives of the National Planning Policy Framework (2018).
