The Committee considered application 16/00997/F for the change of use from Class B2 (general industrial) to Class D2 (assembly and leisure) at James David Smith, 19 Thorpe Place, Banbury, OX16 4XH for Mr Stuart Davies.

 

In reaching their decision, the Committee considered the officers’ report and presentation.

 

Resolved

 

That application 16/00997/F be refused for the following reason:

The site has not been marketed as being vacant and it has not been demonstrated that there are reasons why the site is not economically viable. The loss of the employment land is contrary to the aims and objectives of Policy SLE1 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 and government guidance within the National Planning Policy Framework.

Sundown, Crowcastle Lane, Kirtlington, Kidlington, OX5 3HP pdf icon PDF 136 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused (NB. Application currently subject of a non-determination appeal, therefore the decision is an agreed resolution rather than a determination. The Committee would therefore have resolved to refuse the application for the reasons to be set out in the minutes and this decision will be forwarded to the Planning Inspector)

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 16/00002/F for alterations and a two storey extension to form an enlarged dwelling house at Sundown, Crowcastle Lane, Kirtlington, Kidlington, OX5 3HP for Mr and Mrs D and N Perry.

 

The application was before the Committee to agree a resolution rather than make a determination as the application was currently the subject of a non-determination appeal.  The decision which the Committee resolves it would have made will then be forwarded to the Planning Inspector.

 

In reaching their decision, the Committee considered the officers’ report, presentation and written update.

 

Resolved

 

That it be resolved that had the application 16/00002/F been before the Planning Committee for determination, Members would have refused the planning application for the following reason:

 

By reason of its scale, form, design and siting, the proposed development would result in significant and demonstrable harm to the character and appearance of the area, and therefore fails to accord with saved Policies C28 and C30 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and Policy ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 Part 1, along with chapter 7 of the National Planning Policy Framework on design, in particular paragraphs 57, 58 and 61.
