Proposal

H22-1135-20 Persimmon Homes

Full application for Residential development for the erection of 150 dwellings and associated open space and infrastructure at Land to the North West of High Road, Weston, Spalding

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Consideration was given to the report of the Development Manager upon which the above application was to be determined, including his recommendations, copies of which had previously been circulated to all members.

 

Members debated the matter and fully explored the details of the application in light of prevailing policies and guidance. The debate was not repeated here as Planning Committee meetings were webcast and could be viewed in full at www.sholland.gov.uk for a limited period of time following which the recording could be made available by request, in line with the Democratic Services Privacy Notice.

 

Councillor Casson spoke on this item as a Ward Member and therefore did not vote.

 

AGREED:

 

That the application be refused on the grounds that the design of the proposal, by virtue of visual amenity concerns arising from the number of private drives and bin collection points included in the layout, is considered to be inappropriate to the local area and fails to maximise opportunities for improving the character and quality of the area and therefore does not accord with Policy 3 of the South East Lincolnshire Local Plan (2019), which amongst other things states design which is inappropriate to the local area will not be acceptable and paragraph 134 of the National Planning Policy Framework, 2021, which states development that is not well designed should be refused, especially where it fails to reflect local design policies and government guidance on design contained in the National Design Guide and National Model Design Code.

 

(Moved by Councillor Woolf and Seconded by Councillor Beal)
