    Minutes:

    PROPOSAL: Outline application for the erection of a single storey detached dwelling with all matters reserved

     

    A statement from Mr Brown, in favour of the application was read out by an officer.

     

    A statement from Mr Syme, raising points of concern was read out by an officer.

     

    It was proposed by the Chairman and seconded by Councillor Rusiecki:

     

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

     

    ‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

     

    1  The site lies outside of the village settlement boundary, and as such represents an unsustainable form of development within the countryside for which there is no overriding need, contrary to Policies H1 and CC1 of the Thanet Local Plan, Policies H01, SP01 and SP24 of the Draft Thanet Local Plan, and paragraphs 7 and 8 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

     2  The proposed dwelling, by virtue of its prominent location, would appear visually divorced and isolated, impacting upon long distance views, and detracting from the open and undeveloped rural character of the area, severely detrimental to the appearance of the Landscape Character Area, whilst failing to protect the intrinsic character and beauty of the countryside, contrary to Thanet Local Plan Policies CC1, CC2 and D1, Draft Thanet Local Plan Policies SR24, SR26, and QD02, and paragraphs 127 and 170 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

     3  The proposed development will result in additional pressure on the Thanet Coast and Sandwich Bay Special Protection Area (SPA), and Sandwich Bay and Hacklinge Marshes Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and in the absence of an acceptable form of mitigation to relieve the pressure, the proposed development would be contrary to paragraph 177 of the National Planning Policy Framework.’”

     

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