Rookery Barn, 66 Lower End, Piddington, Bicester, OX25 1QD pdf icon PDF 125 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 17/00133/F for the erection of a building to provide an indoor manege at Rookery Barn, 66 Lower End, Piddington, Bicester, OX25 1QD for Dr & Mrs N Brener.

 

Mrs Deborah Swift, a neighbour to the application, addressed the committee in objection to the application.

 

Dr Neil Brener, the applicant, addressed the committee in support of the application.

 

Councillor Reynolds proposed that application 17/00133/F be refused as it was contrary to Policies ESD 13 and ESD 15 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031, saved Policies C28 and C30 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and Government guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework. Councillor Mould seconded the proposal.

 

In reaching their decision, the committee considered the officers report, presentation, written update and the address of the public speakers.

 

Resolved

 

That application 17/00133/F be refused for the following reasons:

 

1.               The proposed building, by virtue of its size and position beyond the built-up limits of the village of Piddington, would represent an overly prominent feature within the open countryside that would result in significant harm to the visual amenities of the area, and would appear overbearing when viewed from the rear facing openings of 64 Lower End Piddington, causing significant and demonstrable harm to their living conditions. The proposed development is therefore contrary to Policies ESD 13 and ESD 15 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031, saved Policies C28 and C30 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and Government guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework.

OS Parcel 9635 North East Of HM Bullingdon Prison, Widnell Lane, Piddington pdf icon PDF 118 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 17/00145/F for a change of use of land to use as a residential caravan site for 16 gypsy/ traveller families, each with two caravans, including improvement of access and laying of hardstanding at OS Parcel 9635 North East of HM Bullingdon Prison, Widnell Lane, Piddington for Mr H.L Foster.

 

Francesca Darby, Piddington Parish Council Chairman, addressed the committee in objection to the application.

 

In reaching their decision, the Committee considered the officers report, presentation, written update and the address of the public speaker.

 

Resolved

 

That application 17/00145/F be refused for the following reasons:

 

1.               The proposed development, by reason of its size (comprising 16 pitches), siting in relation to existing services, relationship to existing noise generating uses and potential harm to the natural environment, is not considered to be a suitable or sustainable development when assessed against Policy BSC6 of the Cherwell Local Plan. The harm resulting from the proposed development is significant and is not considered to be outweighed by the identified unmet need for gypsy and traveller pitches within Cherwell. The proposed development is therefore considered to be contrary to Government guidance contained within the NPPF, Policy H of Government guidance in Planning Policy for Travellers Sites (PPTS) and Policies PSD1, BSC6, ESD1, ESD13 and ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 Part 1.

 

2.               The planning application has been supported by inadequate information to demonstrate the impact of the proposed development on protected species has been properly understood and the requirement for mitigation to secure a net gain in biodiversity can be met. The proposed development is therefore considered to be contrary to Policy ESD10 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 Part 1 and Government guidance contained with the NPPF.

 

3.               The planning application has been supported by inadequate information to demonstrate the impact of existing noise generating uses operating in the immediate area on the future residents of the site has been properly understood and is, or can be made, acceptable. The proposed development is therefore considered to be contrary to paragraph 17, 120 and 123 of the NPPF, Policy ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 Part 1 and saved Policy ENV1 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996.

Stratton Fields Livery Stables, Launton Road, Stratton Audley, Bicester, OX27 9AS pdf icon PDF 111 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 17/00591/F to demolish livery stables including a one bedroom flat and erect a three bedroom dwelling (the application was a re-submission of 16/02389/F) at Stratton Fields Livery Stables, Launton Road, Stratton Audley, Bicester, OX27 9AS for Mr M Chick.

 

Mr Ben Pearce, agent for the applicant and Martin Chick, the applicant, addressed the committee in support of the application.

 

In reaching their decision, the committee considered the officers report, presentation and the address of the written update.

 

Resolved

 

That application 17/00591/F be refused for the following reasons:

 

1.               The proposed development would result in the creation of a new independent dwelling in an isolated location away from services and facilities.  Whilst it would replace an existing dwelling on site, due to its small size and intimate physical and functional relationship with the stables building, this existing dwelling would only be likely to be occupied by a person associated with the existing livery business.  However no essential need for a rural worker to live permanently at the site has been demonstrated and the proposal would therefore lead to the erection of a new dwelling in an unsustainable location and would be contrary to Policy ESD1 of the Cherwell Local Plan Part 1 (2015), Saved Policy H18 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and advice in the NPPF.

 

2.               The proposed dwelling, by virtue of its scale, locally incongruous design and convoluted form, and associated residential curtilage, would result in a noticeably more conspicuous and harmful form of development which would be detrimental to the rural character and appearance of the area and open countryside setting of the site.  It would also fail to reinforce local distinctiveness. The proposal would therefore be contrary to Policies ESD13 and ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan Part 1 (2015), Saved Policies H17 and C28 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and advice in the NPPF.
