In accordance with the Council’s Public Speaking Protocol for Planning Committee, Mr G Machin (Applicants Agent) and Councillor T Birch (Ward Councillor) addressed the Committee.

 

Comments

 

In giving regard to the Green Belt, members of the Committee thought the rural location of the application would be beneficial to disabled users it is specifically designed to cater for and would be a benefit to the rural economy and tourism.

 

On this basis the Committee thought the Very Special Circumstances and benefits outweighed any harms to the Green Belt and any other harms.

 

Councillor Mallender moved to reject the officer’s recommendation and approve the application with additional conditions around the retention and protection of the hedgerow and the accommodation being used only as a temporary holiday let.

 

This motion to grant planning permission with the additional conditions (to be drafted by officers) was seconded by Councillor Georgiou and the vote was carried.
