Reason for Referral to the Committee / Council

Departure from Local Plan 2017

 

A Members’ Update was submitted that detailed representation from Burnham Town Council and a further letter of objection.

 

Following the Officer’s presentation, the Chairman addressed a public participation submission from the Agent, Neil Cooper. He then moved the Officer’s recommendation that planning application 20/00552/FUL, 1 Stones Park, Stoney Hills, Burnham-on-Crouch be approved subject to the conditions set out in the report at Section 8. This was seconded by Councillor Boyce.

 

The Lead Specialist Place in response to a question about lawful development and planning permission, advised that the previous application 16/00408/FUL was allowed on appeal in May 2017 which was prior to the LDP being adopted, however it was not considered that the main  policies within the emerging LDP and adopted LDP had materially altered in a way that would mean the proposed development should be viewed differently.  Furthermore, it should be noted that the Inspector for application 16/00408/FUL considered that the development did comply with policy D1 of the LDP in terms of its impact on the character of the area. In addition, having regard to the development being undertaken within the Stoney Hills area, and given that the principle of erecting two dwellings on the site had been established, it was considered unreasonable for the application to be recommended for refusal on principle.

 

There being no further discussion the Chairman put the Officer’s recommendation to approve the application to the Committee. Upon a vote being taken the application was approved.

 

It was noted that Councillor Fluker had experienced some technical difficulties and in

accordance with Section 4, paragraph 4.7 of the Remote Meeting Protocol (May 2020)

did not vote on this item of business.
