Application for prior approval for the change of use of 2no. agricultural buildings to 5no. dwellinghouses (C3) following the demolition of part of the buildings.

 

A site visit had been held on Saturday, 7 September 2019, which had been attended by Councillors Barnard, Bhandari, Brossard, Brown, Green, Mrs McKenzie, Mossom, Virgo and Ms Gaw.

 

The Committee noted:

·         The supplementary report of the Head of Planning tabled at the meeting.

·         A total of 3 objections received, as summarised in the Agenda papers and the additional 16 letters of objection as summarised in the supplementary report.

·         The comments of Winkfield Parish Council, given verbally at the meeting, objecting on the grounds of overdevelopment in the Green Belt, excessive traffic and the development not being in keeping with other homes in the lane

 

A motion to approve the recommendation in the officer report was proposed but not seconded.

 

Therefore an alternative motion to refuse the application was proposed and seconded, and on being put to the vote was CARRIED.

 

RESOLVED that planning application 19/00721/PAA be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

Following the receipt of further information from third parties it is not considered that it has been demonstrated on the balance of probability that on the requisite date, 20 March 2013 or before, the use of the site was solely for agricultural use.  As such the proposal does not comply with caveat (a) of Class Q of Part 3 of Schedule 2 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 (as amended) and the application for Prior Approval is therefore refused.
