Resolved

 

That application 18/01332/F be refused, for the following reason:

 

1.                 The proposed development, by virtue of its poor access to services and facilities, reliance on the private car to access services and facilities, detrimental impact on the rural character and appearance of the area and poor living environment for future residents in relation to noise, is considered to represent an unsustainable form of development.  The harm is not considered to be outweighed by the benefits of the scheme.  The proposal is therefore considered to be contrary to Policies ESD1, BSC6, ESD13 and ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan Part 1 (2015), Saved Policy C8 Cherwell Local Plan 1996 and advice in the National Planning Policy Framework and Planning Policy for Travellers Sites (2015).
