    PROPOSAL: Outline application for the erection of 6No. dwellings with all matters reserved

     

    Speaking in favour of the application was Mr Brown.

     

    It was proposed by the Chairman and seconded by the Vice Chairman:

     

    “THAT the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

     

    ‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

     

    1 The proposed dwellings, by virtue of their location and scale, would impact upon long

    distance views, and detract from the open and undeveloped rural character of the area,

    severely detrimental to the appearance of the Landscape Character Area, and thereby failing

    to protect the intrinsic character and beauty of the countryside, contrary to Thanet Local Plan

    Policies CC1, CC2 and D1, and paragraphs 127, 130 and 170 of the National Planning Policy

    Framework.

    2 The proposed development is located in an area where there is the potential for

    significant archaeology, and no archaeological field evaluation has been submitted with the

    application to determine the presence, location, nature, significance and condition of any

    archaeological remains within the site. As such, the proposed development in the form

    proposed could affect significant archaeological remains, and is therefore considered

    contrary to paragraph 189 of the NPPF.’”

     

    Upon being put to the vote, the motion was declared CARRIED.
