Reason for Referral to the Committee / Council

Departure from the Local Plan 2017

 

A Members’ Update was submitted detailing comments from Burnham Town Council, Local Highways Authority and Natural England.

 

Following the Officer’s presentation Mr Russell Forde, the Agent, addressed the Committee.

 

Councillor Stamp said she would not be supporting this application as she felt the location was not sustainable and services were already under strain in the area. This was noted by the Committee. 

 

However, having taken all material planning considerations into account, including the extant outline planning permission (APP/X1545/W/16/3147227), it was found that the principle of erecting dwellinghouses in this location had been accepted. Therefore, albeit reluctantly, is was not considered that one additional dwelling and a replacement dwelling would provide any considerations that would alter this stance. 

 

The Chairman put the Officer’s recommendation of approve to the Committee and upon a vote it was agreed.

 

RESOLVED that the application be APPROVED subject to the following conditions:

 

 

1.         The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of

three years from the date of this permission.
