Decision:

Refused reasons to be set out in the minutes

Minutes:

The Committee considered application 18/01501/F for the change of use from Class A4 (ACV Listed) to Class C3 dwellinghouse at The Pheasant Pluckers Inn, Burdrop, Banbury, OX15 5RQ for Mr Geoffrey Richard Noquet.

 

In introducing the report, the Senior Planning Officer explained that the applicant had appealed on the grounds of non-determination of the application and therefore the application is only before planning committee to seek confirmation as to what their resolution would have been, had the Council been in a position to determine the application and issue a decision.

 

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

 

Resolved

 

That application 18/01501/F would have been refused, for the following reasons:

 

1.         The proposal would result in the loss of a valued village service and Asset of Community Value which, on the basis of the application and the submissions received, it has not been demonstrated to be unviable in the long-term. As such, the loss of the public house would lead to an unacceptable impact on the local community and also on the character and appearance of the conservation area and would therefore be contrary to saved Policy S29 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996, Policies ESD 15 and BSC 12 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 Part 1 and Government guidance and advice on supporting and building a strong, competitive economy and promoting healthy and safe communities contained within the National Planning Policy Framework.
