Reason for Referral to the Committee / Council

Member call in from Councillor R H Siddall

Reason: S1, H7, S8 and D1


Following the Officer’s presentation, the Applicant, Mr Alan McCheyne, addressed the Committee.  The Chairman then moved the Officer’s recommendation of refusal and this was duly seconded.


During the discussion that ensued the Lead Specialist Place provided guidance on developments within the countryside, agricultural ties and how such dwellings were only allowed in exceptional circumstances. 


The Chairman then put the Officer’s recommendation of refusal to the Committee and upon a vote being taken it was declared lost.


Councillor R H Siddall proposed that the application be approved, contrary to the Officer’s recommendation, for the reason it had been demonstrated the 87 requirements had been met by the applicant to ensure the agricultural land could be worked effectively and accommodate that need.  This was duly seconded.


The Chairman put Councillor Siddall’s proposed approval of the application to the Committee advising that should it be mindful to agree this conditions would be delegated to Officers.  Upon a vote being taken this was agreed.


RESOLVED that the application be APPROVED subject to conditions delegated to Officers in consultation with the Chairman and Ward Members.
