    Minutes:

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

     

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

     

    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 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 H01, SP01 and SP24 of the Thanet Local Plan, and paragraphs 7 and 8 of the National Planning Policy Framework.


     2  The proposed dwelling, by virtue of its location outside of the village confines, would impact upon long distance views and detract from the open and undeveloped rural character of the area, thereby failing to protect the intrinsic character and beauty of the countryside, and severely detrimental to the local distinctiveness of the Landscape Character Area, contrary to Thanet Local Plan Policies SP24 and SP26, and paragraph 170 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

    Further to debate, the motion was put to the vote and declared CARRIED.”

    PROPOSAL: Erection of 1No three bedroom dwelling for accommodation for glamping site manager

     

    Councillor Pugh spoke as ward councillor.

     

    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 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 SP01, SP24 and H01 of the 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 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 policy SP29 of the Thanet Local Plan and paragraph 177 of the National Planning Policy Framework.”

     

    Further to debate, the motion was put to the vote and declared CARRIED.
